The RG8520 features include an African mahogany body with a 4mm thick bound flamed maple top bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a rosewood fingerboard bound with flame maple with a Tree of Life vine inlay. Components include a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, dual DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbucking pickups with a mini-toggle coil split switch and Gotoh tuning machines.

The RG8520 was discontinued after 2016. A similar model with the same name was reintroduced as a normal production model for 2018.
