Up for sale, a 2014 Ibanez RG852 in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and user manual. This Ibanez 8-string was crafted at the Fujigen factory as part of the upscale Prestige line, featuring a gloss Galaxy Black finish, Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge, Graph Tech nut, and Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners. This particular RG852 has been outfitted with a pair of Instrumental SFTY4 humbuckers.

Tonewoods include a basswood body, five-piece maple/wenge neck, and a slab rosewood fretboard, and this RG852 weighs 8lbs 3oz. The upgraded pair of Instrumental SFTY4 humbuckers are described as “taught, punchy, brutal,” designed with medium-high output and self-generated harmonics for extra bite and punch. The cleans are pristine, but naturally these humbuckers are engineered for gain, with a chunky low end response and searing trebles, fully capturing an ideal frequency spectrum across all eight strings. This RG852 has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-80 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

-Wood: Five-piece maple/wenge
-Shape: Ultra-8, slender with full shoulders, measuring .790” 1st fret, .850” 12th fret

-Scale Length: 27”
-Nut: 2 1/8“, GraphTech Black TUSQ XL

-Serialization: F14-prefix translates to 2014

Body Specs:

-Wood: Basswood
-Pickups: Instrumental SFTY4 (replacement)

The gloss Galaxy Black finish is practically pristine, with only a couple tiny marks on the body as a whole. The smooth satin finish on the neck profile is immaculate.

The original faux alligator black hardshell case with Ibanez badge is included, along with the user manual. The case retains the factory protective plastic on the handle.
