Ibanez j.custom guitars are manufactured by an elite group of highly skilled luthiers trained to produce instruments of uncompromised quality. The j.custom designation represents every advance in design and technology Ibanez has developed over the decades: the best woods, neck, fret treatments, perfect pickup combos and reliable hardware. Each masterfully crafted to the highest standards to ensure unparalleled sound, maximum playability and exquisite beauty.
With all above exquisite manners, Ibanez is pleased to release the RG8570Z. The body is made of African Mahogany and has a superior warm tone with rich resonance. It is laminated with a stunning Framed Maple on the top. The Tree of Life inlay on the Bound Selected Rosewood fretboard adds to the model's gorgeous look.
The Super Wizard 5pc Maple/Walnut neck features a slim grip shape, and the Velvetouch finish on neck back ensures "just right" feel and ease of play with j.custom fret edge treatment. It is stable and resistance to warping and twisting over the years, and enough sustain to its tone. The Edge Zero II tremolo bridge features a lower profile design for comfort and a stud lock function for superior tuning stability. Locking studs contribute to tuning stability. The DiMarzio Air Norton, True Velvet, and Tone Zone pickups offer depth, warmth, and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch. A hard-shell case is included.
