Ibanez RG8570Z Prestige J.Custom Electric Guitar
Envisioned to be "the finest Japanese-made guitar in history," guitar connoisseurs waited for over decade to access the ultimate made-in-Japan guitar domestically. Built by some of the most masterly luthiers in Japan, the j.custom designation represents every advance in design and technology Ibanez has developed over the last 20 years: the best woods, neck, and fret treatments, perfect pickup combos, and tremolo systems that are the envy of the industry. Availability is extremely limited.
Super Wizard j.custom Neck
5pc Maple/Walnut Super Wizard j.custom neck offers ultimate playability with Velvet Touch back-of-neck finish.
j.custom applies ultra hard Jumbo frets. And our luthiers’ attention to detail is evidenced by the j.custom’s hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
The RG8570Z features the DiMarzio® Tone Zone in the bridge position, True Velvet in the middle position, and the Air Norton™ in the neck position.
The Edge-Zero has a sharp knife-edge for extremely accurate tremolo playing. This tremolo also uses Ibanez innovations to keep string action constant and the bridge surface smooth. The specially designed arm socket prevents unnecessary wobble from the arm while providing full control over the arm's torque.
ZPS3 Zero Point System
The ZPS3 is the next stage of zero point systems. Made of lightweight Duralumin, the addition of two outer springs makes the guitar easier to tune and provides much greater tuning stability. In fact, the other strings will stay in tune even if you break a string. If you prefer a full floating tremolo setup, simply remove the stop bar.
To maximize playability, j.custom has recessed control knobs.
Tree of Life Inlay
The j.custom Tree of Life inlay is our designer's symbolic testament to the importance of continual growth.
j.custom exclusive All Access Neck Joint heel gives ultra smooth feel.
