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 Ibanez' industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
Traditionally, the RG is a Guitar designed for the heavier side of rock, with Basswood bodies and floating bridges. The RG421EX breaks from this tradition, lending it's self to a warmer, more versatile sound from a mahogany body and a fixed bridge. The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation. Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.
