Ibanez Introduce 8-String RG8L Left Handed Guitar

Ibanez have long been calling themselves the first name in seven, and the leader in eight string guitars – despite having nothing but a couple of discontinued, incredibly hard to find models for us southpaws. But it looks like they’ll soon be making a little effort to correct this…

The RG8L is a new 27″ scale length 8-string due for release in 2013.  As is customary with left handed offerings from Ibanez, this new guitar is on the more affordable end of the spectrum and only comes in black – but hey, it looks great!  So far only the European catalogue has appeared on the internet, so this could very well be a Euro exclusive – expect more details as NAMM opens this week.
