Ibanez has remained the strongest name in metal guitars because of the outstanding playability and peerless performance of Ibanez instruments. From carefully selected materials to pro-level hardware and high-profile electronics, every detail is deeply considered and designed. The Ibanez High Performance series delivers high-end performance and road warrior dependability.
The RG421HPAH features an exotic Ash body top and a Nyatoh body back which create a truly mesmerizing visual aura and a warm, yet expressive, tone. A Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood‘s stability and durability. It provides a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. A Jatoba fretboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering up and down the full length of the fretboard. It has luminescent side dot position marks to make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages. DiMarzio® Fusion Edge pickups, the amazing product of a collaboration between DiMarzio® and Ibanez, provide great clarity and a very smooth response, that satisfy the current demands of players in today’s progressive metal scene, in combination with the 3-way pickup and coil tap switches. A fixed bridge boasts a new low profile design, allowing plenty of picking hand freedom while optimizing tuning stability.
- Jatoba Fretboard: Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
- Coil-tap switch: The coil tap switch adds sound and tonal variations for both pickups.
- DiMarzio® Fusion Edge Pickups: Through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio® Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range.
