Ibanez RG8570Z CRA RG J. Custom Guitar, Chrysocolla, Flame Maple Top, Rosewood Bound Fretboard


Player's Perspective

If you're looking for a boutique example of just how nice an Ibanez guitar can be, then look no further! Music Store Live is proud to offer up thie J.Custom RG that simply has one of the fastest and most shred-ready necks ever put on a guitar with hardware and pickups that will complement the beautiful styling.

Make no mistake about it, this guitar wants to be played fast. It's designed from top to bottom to make shredding at breakneck speeds easier than ever. The DiMarzio pickups retain clarity, articulation, and deifnition, even when laden with heavy saturation. The Floyd Rose inspired hardware gives you infinite flexibility with your tremolo. Whether you're dive bombing like a stunt pilot or just laying down some light flutter, you'll never have to worry about sacrificing intonation. This guitar wants you to play it fast and it wants to hit the front end of your amp hard. That's what it was designed to do and it does it extraordinarily well. But unlike a lot of shredder axes out there, you can also clean up really nicely and the pickups have a sweet enough mid-range where you can get beautiful clean sounds when you aren't trying to melt faces.

This is a thoroughly pro-quality instrument, right here. It's quite versatile while still being oriented for more modern and aggressive styles of playing. Perfect for somebody that wants to look great on the big stage but needs playability and tone that will back that up! The j.custom Ibanez guitars are the best production Ibanez guitars that money can buy.

Manufacturer's Description

The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.

Fretboard - Select Rosewood fretboard with Flamed Maple binding and Tree Of Life inlay.

All Access Neck Joint - j.custom special neck joint offers superior playability at the high frets.

AAA Flamed Maple top / African Mahogany body - A Flamed Maple top and African Mahogany back body provides rich low end and a crisp high end.

j.custom Special Neck - RG j.custom Super Wizard 5pc Maple/Wenge neck includes Jumbo frets finished with j.custom special fret edge treatment for super smooth,comfortable performance. "Velvetouch" finish on neck back ensures "just right" feel and ease of play.

Easy Access Control Knobs - Recessed control knobs for better playability.

DiMarzio® Pickups - The DiMarzio® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch.

ZPS3 Zero Point System - The ZPS3 is the next stage of zero point systems. Made of lightweight Duralumin, the addition of two outer springs makes the guitar easier to tune and provides much greater tuning stability. In fact, the other strings will stay in tune even if you break a string. If you prefer a full floating tremolo setup, simply remove the stop bar.

Edge-Zero Tremolo - The Edge-Zero has a sharp knife-edge for extremely accurate tremolo playing. This tremolo also uses Ibanez innovations to keep string action constant and the bridge surface smooth. The specially designed arm socket prevents unnecessary wobble from the arm while providing full control over the arm's torque.
