The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. This Iron Label RG model, the RGIT27FE, features a Nitro Wizard-7 7pc Maple/Walnut neck with thru-body construction and an Ebony fretboard. These specs help it achieve a tight low-end sound and a quick response, both of which are needed for today’s metal.
The USA-made EMG 707 active pickups, designed specifically for 7-string, compliment it’s extended frequencey ranges, with lots of clarity and dynamic output, from high to low end. Also, a kill switch provides the player easy access to a manually controlled strobe effect. The Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge optimally transfers string vibration to the body and is a perfect compliment to it’s neck-thru construction.
The locking tuners add another player-friendly feature as well, helping to stabilize tuning as well as cutting down string-changing time.
The Ibanez Iron Label Series are a meticulously designed and professional quality series of 6, 7 and 8 string electric guitars purposely built for modern metal guitar players that feature only the highest quality parts such as active EMG or DiMarzio pickups, Ibanez’s own nitro wizard neck, heavy duty hardware and even killswitches. By stripping back the designs to the basics and working from the ground up Ibanez have built an adept line of heavy metal guitars that cater to your every need and prove to be an outstanding choice for all styles of metal players.
