IBANEZ j.custom RG8520-SDE Sodalite

Electric guitar with flamed maple top, DiMarzio pickups and Lo-Pro Edge tremolo, including case and certificate

The Ibanez j.custom RG8520-SDE Sodalite is a high quality electric guitar for rock and metal that combines smart looks with great playability and multi-faceted sounds. Besides a mahogany body with flamed maple top, Ibanez uses a bolt-on five-piece maple-wenge neck with Macassar ebony fretboard in the fast "j.custom Super Wizard" neck profile. Two DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers promise modern rock and metal sounds with tight precision even in drop tunings and with heavy distortion. An Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge double-locking tremolo and Gotoh tuners harmoniously complete the Ibanez j.custom RG8520-SDE Sodalite.

Noble design and excellent playability

In designing the Ibanez j.custom RG8520-SDE Sodalite, Ibanez paid special attention to the use of high quality woods and comfortable feel. Accordingly, the African mahogany body carries a flamed maple top in AAA quality , whereas the bolt-on neck proves to be particularly stable thanks to the five-piece maple-wenge construction. The extremely flat "j.custom Super Wizard" neck profile combined with the flat radius of the Macassar ebony fingerboard enables smooth playing up to the 24th of the jumbo frets .

With two splittable DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers, the Ibanez j.custom RG8520 delivers multi-faceted and distinctive rock and metal sounds.

DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups

The electrical sound conversion of the Ibanez j.custom RG8520-SDE sodalite is done by two DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers with powerful ceramic magnets. Specially tuned to modern styles of rock and metal, these pickups convince with a tight bass foundation and crisp highs, ensuring that even high-gain sounds and drop tunings are reproduced with absolute precision. The mini-switch between the volume and tone controls allows both humbuckers to be split , adding transparent single-coil sounds to the palette of the Ibanez j.custom RG8520.

The classic Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge tremolo offers smooth handling and absolute tuning stability even with extensive whammy bar action, thanks to its double-locking construction . Behind the locking nut , six Gotoh tuners on the headstock guarantee precise tuning. Furthermore Gotoh Strap-Locks hold the Ibanez j.custom RG8520-SDE Sodalite securely on the guitar strap.
