The Ibanez RG j.custom RG8527 is meticulously crafted to offer an exceptional playing experience. At its core, the Super Wizard 7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck sets the stage for effortless playability. This neck isn't just smooth; it's extra-smooth, ensuring that your hands glide across the fretboard effortlessly.

One of the standout features is the legendary Lo-Pro Edge 7 tremolo bridge. Beyond its iconic status, it enhances playing comfort with its streamlined design and recessed fine tuners. This bridge also incorporates locking studs, which significantly contribute to tuning stability, keeping your performance in tune no matter how intense it gets.

The DiMarzio PAF 7 pickups have become increasingly popular with the rise of 7-string guitars, meeting the demand for a lower-output pickup that captures the clean and classic humbucking tones reminiscent of the late 50s. Unlike a mere modification to DiMarzio's 6-string design, the PAF 7 is purpose-built for 7-string guitars. Drawing on technology from the Virtual Vintage pickup series, it delivers a sound that is both clean and open on the lower notes, while offering warmth and roundness on the highs.

The PAF 7 takes inspiration from the 1950s humbuckers that utilised Alnico 2, 3, or 5 magnets. In a departure from tradition, the PAF 7 employs a ceramic magnet, allowing for the same low magnet-pull as Alnico 2 or 3, combined with the power of Alnico 5. This unique approach keeps the low strings bright and clean, while the incorporation of Virtual Vintage technology within the coils ensures warm high notes and a playing feel reminiscent of the 50s humbuckers.

The Super Wizard 7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck is a work of art in itself. Featuring jumbo frets and a unique fret edge treatment, it ensures a super smooth and comfortable performance. The "Velvetouch" finish on the back of the neck adds to the overall comfort, providing that "just right" feel for easy playability.

Additionally, the j.custom special neck joint offers superior playability, especially at the high frets, giving you unrestricted access to the entire fretboard. The guitar's construction boasts an AAA Flamed Maple top paired with an African Mahogany body, offering both visual elegance and tonal richness.

The bound Macassar Ebony fretboard features the iconic Tree of Life inlay, adding a touch of sophistication to the guitar's aesthetics. With 24 jumbo frets and a scale length of 648mm (25.5"), this guitar is designed to accommodate a wide range of playing styles. To top it off, Gotoh machine heads and strap lock pins ensure that this instrument is not only a joy to play but also built to last.
