Hardware includes Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge, coil-tap switch, Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads. The pickups are a pair Bare Knuckle Aftermath 7’s – revered by metal guitarists for their tight, articulate sound and excellent dynamics, Bare Knuckle’s Aftermath pickups are designed for aggressive playing styles.

“Nothing breathes inspiration into your playing like the feel of a precision made instrument, capable of interpreting your every move with power and accuracy. Enter the Ibanez RGA— a solid body specifically built to handle the heaviest, most physically demanding music you can conjure up. The RGA’s unique, sleekly sculpted top offers unrestricted playability for full-throttle power chording or heavy riffing without fear of digging into the body.” – Ibanez
