Ibanez introduce the RGIX27FESM 7-string 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 RGIX27FESM is a hardtail instrument that brings the Iron Label Series to a whole new level…

The Ibanez RGIX27FESM Iron Label features a lightweight Basswood body with a Spalted Maple top. The neck is an Ibanez Nitro Wizard-7 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 USA-made EMG 707 active pickups – designed specifically for the 7-string. The reliable Gibraltar Standard II-7 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.
