RGD

The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5" scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a "fast" neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.

FEATURES

Wizard-7 Neck

Slim, fast and durable Wizard-7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck

Scoop Cut

Besides lightening the weight of the body, this bold horn cut provides full, comfortable access to the higher frets. The taper of these horns greatly improves player comfort at the upper end up the fretboard. These beveled edges are another of the many innovations that have come out of our relationships with Ibanez artists.

Ebony fretboard

The tight grain of Ebony provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low-end with the quick response needed for metal.

Stainless steel frets

The stainless steel frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on.

Bare Knuckle Aftermath Pickups

Hand-wound in UK, Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation.

Tight-End R bridge

The Tight End R bridge is perfectly designed to anchor with rigidness and accuracy.
