The RGIF8 is an eight string RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It was made in Indonesia as part of the metal-focused Iron Label line.

The RGIF8 is a multi scale model featuring fanned frets with a 27.2" (692mm) scale length at the seventh string and a 25.5" (628mm) scale length at the first string. The equalized string tension this design allows contributes to a more "alive" tone while the fanned fret layout provides an ergonomic platform for the player's hand as it moves up and down the neck facilitating speed and comfort.

In addition to the multi scale design the RGIF8 features an ash body bolted to a maple and bubinga Nitro Wizard-8 neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with no inlays. Components include a fixed bridge and dual active EMG humbucking pickups.

The RGIF7 is a similar seven-string model. The RGIM8MH is a similar model with a mahogany body.

The RGIF8 was discontinued after 2017.
