Ibanez introduce the RGIX20FESM extending their Iron Label made-for-metal guitar series. Working from the chassis of their famous RG, Ibanez luthiers modded and tweaked with the heaviest of metal in mind. The RGIX20FESM is a hardtail instrument that brings the Iron Label Series to a whole new level…

The Ibanez RGIX20FESM Iron Label features a lightweight Basswood body with a Spalted Maple top. The neck is an Ibanez Nitro Wizard made from 3-piece Maple & Bubinga – super-thin, ultra-playable with road-tested durability. The fretboard, like all RGIX models, is made from bound Ebony for tight low-end and quick response needed for metal. The pickups are the EMG 60/81 combination – the EMG 60 neck pickup packs plenty of output with a balance of tones that is classic-thick; boosted mids, big lows, and fat highs. EMG® 81 bridge pickup gives detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. The reliable Gibraltar Standard II bridge is the envy of the industry, and the performance enhancing killswitch puts you in command of a head-turning strobe effect.

The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
