Produced exclusively in Japan with passion and pride.
As the crown jewel of Ibanez, the Prestige line represents the passion and pride of Japanese luthiery. These guitars, produced exclusively in Japan, have earned worldwide acclaim and respect throughout the industry for their craftsmanship, quality, and innovation. Combine this with the classic Ibanez RG design and you have an instrument that truly represents a cornerstone of the Ibanez legacy.
The RG852 8-string features a select basswood body and super-rigid Ultra-8 neck constructed of five, glued, solid pieces of maple/wengeto accommodate 27 scale string tension, and maintain superior tone and sustain. Electronics include a pair of US made EMG 808 pickups for responsive, super-tight low-end with exceptional articulation, plus a 3-way selector switch.
The original low-profile Gibraltar Standard II-8 bridge, designed for precise intonation adjustment, playing comfort, and great sustain, combine with super smooth Gotoh MG-T locking tuners for superior tuning stability. Hardshell case included.

Comments about Ibanez RG852 Prestige RG Series 8 String Electric Guitar:
I'll start by saying, the only reason that I gave the review four starts is, I'm not a fan of EMG pickups and the routes for them make purchasing replacement pickups a bit more expensive. That's the only con, for me specifically. The guitar is exactly what you would expect if you've had any experience with the Ibanez Prestige line in the past. Most aren't too aesthetically flashy, but that's more than made up for in terms of build quality, hardware, and playability. The neck and hardware are phenomenal. Decent setup from the factory. I can't really complain about it at all. The case that these come with is really nice as well. The extended scale length isn't difficult to adjust to at all, it still feels like a guitar.
