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.
Fretboard - Select Macassar Ebony fretboard with Flamed Maple binding and Tree Of Life inlay.
All Access Neck Joint - j.custom special neck joint offers superior playability at the high frets.
AAA Flamed Maple top / African Mahogany body - A Flamed Maple top and African Mahogany back body provide rich low end and a crisp high end.
j.custom Special Neck - RG j.custom Super Wizard 5pc Maple/Wenge neck includes Jumbo frets finished with j.custom special fret edge treatment for super smooth, comfortable performance. "Velvetouch" finish on neck back ensures "just right" feel and ease of play.
Easy Access Control Knobs - Recessed control knobs for better playability.
DiMarzio® Pickups - The DiMarzio® PAF®7 pickups produce a sound that's both clean and open on the low notes and warm and rounded on the high ones.
ZPS3 Zero Point System - The ZPS3 is the next stage of zero point systems. Made of lightweight Duralumin, the addition of two outer springs makes the guitar easier to tune and provides much greater tuning stability. In fact, the other strings will stay in tune even if you break a string. If you prefer a full floating tremolo setup, simply remove the stop bar.
Edge-Zero Tremolo - The Edge-Zero has a sharp knife-edge for extremely accurate tremolo playing. This tremolo also uses Ibanez innovations to keep string action constant and the bridge surface smooth. The specially designed arm socket prevents unnecessary wobble from the arm while providing full control over the arm's torque.
