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.
With metal and nothing but metal in mind, we modded and tweaked until we got to the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability we took our legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard - as fast and comfortable but with added road-tested durability. Whether it's a 6, 7 or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG or DiMarzio pickups. Purposefully Spartan, you won't find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead.
