Incredibly fast J Custom Super Wizard neck
Ibanez Wizard necks are thin and built for speed, and they enable effortless playability and comfort. The RG8520 takes that design to the next level with its 5-piece maple/wenge J Custom Super Wizard neck. The just-right feel provided by this neck encourages lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons. Capping the neck is a 24-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard, loaded with jumbo frets that are perfect for big note bends. Beyond that, the RG8520's frets have been given Ibanez’s Prestige edge treatment, delivering the ultimate in smooth playability.
DiMarzio dynamic duo delivers expansive sonic range
There’s no denying the massive range of tone that you can get out of the Ibanez RG8520's duo of DiMarzio pickups. First, there’s the DiMarzio Tone Zone at the bridge — a hot humbucker with a super-wide dynamic range. It’s a perfect complement to the RG8520's DiMarzio Air Norton at the neck, which is deep, warm, and remarkably clean, with just the right amount of brightness for chimey chord work. You’ll love this ultra-flexible pickup set.
Lo-Pro Edge bridge for maximum expression
Whether you palm mute with precision or simply have a wild strumming style, few things are worse than getting hung up on your bridge during a furious performance.
