Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed and articulation, the RGAIX6U features a spacious, bound Ebony fretboard mounted on a 3-piece Maple/Bubinga Nitro Wizard neck that both enhances playing agility and optimizes clarity. The acclaimed Ibanez Gibraltar Standard II bridge improves sustain and provides faultless intonation. Gotoh® locking machine heads help provide superior tuning stability and expedite string changes. The RGAIX6U sports a pair of matched Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups designed to deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and precise high-end articulation. An added coil-tap feature, easily accessible through a conveniently located on/off mini switch, provides even greater tonal options.
