The RG8PB is an eight-string RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was produced in Indonesia.

The RG8PB features a poplar burl top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups and a fixed bridge.

The RG8 is similar but lacks the exotic poplar top. The RG8FM is a similar model with a flamed maple top.

The RG8PB was discontinued after 2017.
