The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
Equalized tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
Nitro Wizard Multi Scale Neck
The super-slim, ultra-comfortable 5-piece Maple/Bubinga Nitro Wizard neck provides solid stability for the increased tension of the extra strings. A spacious, Rosewood fretboard enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation.
Because of their slanted mounting angle, wider-than-normal pickups are required for a multi scale construction instrument. EMG808 and EMG909 pickups fit the bill perfectly—not only in size, but also in sound. Proven performers for down-tuning, their highly responsive, super-tight growl is the superb matched for the RGIM.
The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others.
