The RG series is the most distinctive line of guitars by Ibanez. Three decades of metal and rock music have created a guitar, perfected for shrepping and playing impressive leads. The neck-through construction with 5 piece maple/walnut wooden neck give a fast response, beautiful mid-range projection and additionally playing comfort up to the upper frets and a long sustain. The jatoba finger key and super wizard HP neck profile gives the guitar a comfortable hand-fret feel and great playability. That together with the jumbo frets offers fantastic nut control, which makes great bends and vibratos easy. The pair of Quantum humbuckers are more versatile than they seem at first glance. With the 5-way pickup switch, both pickups can be used as humbucker, but also together as a single coil, and the neck pickup can be connected in parallel, giving a special, double single-coil sound as if on a stratocaster. All in all, therefore, a precision instrument.
