Overview

Every advance in design and technology Ibanez has to offer.

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 its continued popularity, Ibanez is pleased to release RG8520. The body is made of African mahogany and has a superior warm tone with rich resonance. It is laminated with a stunning 4mm framed maple on the top. The Tree of Life inlay on the bound selected Macassar ebony fretboard adds to the model’s gorgeous look.

The Super Wizard 5pc maple/wenge 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. The Lo-pro Edge tremolo bridge features a lower profile design for comfort and a stud lock function for superior tuning stability.

The DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups offer powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range, and the coil-tap switch enhances the tonal versatility. A hardshell case is included.
