2001 Ibanez J Custom RG8570, JCRG-80-NT AAAAA Flame Maple Top Natural w/ HSH DiMarzio, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2001 Ibanez RG8570 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original molded hardshell case. This premium Ibanez model was crafted at the Fujigen factory in Japan as part of the high end J. Custom line, featuring an HSH trio of DiMarzio pickups. With a heavily figured AAAAA bookmatched tiger maple top, Honduran mahogany body, five-piece maple/bubinga neck, and bound rosewood fretboard, this Ibanez's natural acoustic tone has both fundamental warmth and clear treble cut.

The humbucker in the bridge position is a DiMarzio Tone Zone, a bold high-output pickup that offers great low end and lower-midrange response to ensure the tone stays full and fat. The neck humbucker is a DiMarzio Air Norton, a warm, open-sounding pickup designed with a unique magnetic structure to reduce string pull and increase sustain while maintaining dynamic feel and responsiveness to user inputs. The central single coil is a DiMarzio True Velvet, with single coil shimmer and snap, blending well with the humbuckers at the “in-between” positions on the five-way pickup selector switch. This Ibanez weighs 9lbs 4oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Natural finish highlights the three dimensional curly flame figuring extending across the AAAAA bookmatched maple top, and cosmetic wear is limited to some dings along the lower bout perimeter and a scant few additional marks on the body as a whole. The satin finish on the neck profile is flawless.
