Ibanez RG8570ZLBSR 6 String LH Electric Guitar j. custom Brownish Sphalerite Finish rg-8570-z-l-bsr
The RG8570ZL from Ibanez features all the high-end specs you'd come to expect from the line-up- only this time, suited for left-handed players.
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.
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.
The DiMarzio® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch.
