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.
The super-slim, ultra-comfortable 5-piece Maple/Purpleheart Nitro Wizard neck provides solid stability for the increased tension of the extra strings.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
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.
