If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in Metal guitars, then the RGA is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury, and expression.
The RGA42FM is a hardtail 6-string electric built around a Meranti body with a stunning Flamed Maple top. Its contoured top not only looks sleek, it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player’s right forearm rests. Other features include a fast, thin, Wizard III Maple neck and Jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets for maximum left hand performance.
This neck and fretboard combination provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RGA42FM’s warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups offer an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that never sacrifice high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.
- Jatoba Fretboard: Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
- Wizard III Maple neck: Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.
- Quantum pickups: The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.
