Ibanez RG8570Z-BSR J Custom Electric guitar, Brownish Sphalerite

Like all the guitars in Ibanez’s high-end J Custom line, the RG8570Z positively oozes amazing looks, tone, and playability. Its beautiful AAA flamed-maple-capped African mahogany body supplies unbelievable resonance and sustain. Its 5-piece neck provides a just-right feel, while a Prestige fret edge treatment infuses its bound Macassar ebony fingerboard with the ultimate in smooth playability. DiMarzio’s Tone Zone, True Velvet, and Air Norton pickups push your amp to get crunchy rhythms and hot leads. Beyond that, you can bend, twist, and dive-bomb with impunity, thanks to an Edge-Zero vibrato bridge/tailpiece. The RG8570Z features Ibanez’s gorgeous tree of life fingerboard inlay and cosmo black hardware.

Ibanez is one of the first Japanese musical instrument companies to gain a significant foothold in import guitar sales in the United States and Europe, as well as the first brand of guitars to mass-produce the seven-string guitar and eight-string guitar. The company has an impressive lineup of products ranging from instruments to pedals and accessories, and have recently raised standards and eyebrows with the new AZ Series, which Josh Smith described as the best superstrat he’s played in a long time.
