IBANEZ Has Some Pretty Insane New Axe Design Lab Guitars

Ibanez has some pretty kickass new Axe Design Lab guitars, and we need ’em. Well at least when they hit the market – right now all we can do is window shop.



The RG8870 features a Super Wizard 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck with a Macassar Ebony fretboard, Alder body with AAA Flamed Maple, and a Lo-Pro Edge bridge. The RG8870 comes loaded with a DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary in the neck, DiMarzio True Velvet™ in the middle, and a DiMarzio The Tone Zone in the bridge.


Then there’s the monstrous 9-string RG9PB. This beast offers a Wizard-9 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck with a Macassar Ebony fretboard, a Poplar Burl top with a Nyatoh body, and a Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker Alnico 9 in the neck with a Ceramic 9 in the bridge. Perfect for all your incredibly low-tuned djent needs.


The RGA622XH comes in both Black and White finishes, both offering a Wizard HP 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck with Bound Macassar Ebony fretboards, as well as African Mahogany bodies. Both come with Lo-Pro Edge bridges, a DiMarzio Air Norton S pickup in the neck, and a DiMarzio The Tone Zone in the bridge.


The RGDMS8 is an 8-string fanned-fret monster with a Wizard III-8 for Multi Scale 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck, Macassar Ebony fretboard, and a Nyatoh body. The RGDMS8 offers Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers in the neck and bridge, and is tuned down a half step to F standard.


And finally, there’s the fan-fret 6-string SML721. The SML721 comes in a Rose Gold Chameleon finish with a Wizard 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck, Rosewood fretboard, and Jumbo JESCAR EVOgold frets. The guitar features a Nyatoh body with two Q58 pickups and all-Gold hardware.
