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.

Nitro Wizard 3pc Maple/Purpleheart neck

Legendary Super-thin, ultra-playable neck, made by Maple/Purpleheart with road-tested durability.

Ebony fretboard

Ebony produces a tight low and mid range with an iconic attack on the high end. It also features a quick response and rich sustain.

Multi scale

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.

Mono-rail bridge

The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others.

Luminescent side dot inlay

The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
