Manufacturer's ID: RGAIX7FM-TGF
What we say:
As part of Ibanez's Iron Label range, this RGA 7 string is designed specifically for unleashing molten hot shards of low and aggressive metal. With a bound, inlay-less Ebony fretboard and a moody grey finish, this austere monolith of metal is designed from the ground up to be objectively heavy. It's a beast!
That's not to say it isn't a beautiful beast. The natural finish mahogany back has been topped with some impressive flamed maple, which is also carried over to the headstock veneer. It's a classy touch that adds an upmarket vibe to what is otherwise a total sledgehammer.
Modern metal guitarists require performance and precision from their instruments in order to be able to execute their complex, polyrhythmic ideas properly in the studio and in front of an audience. Ibanez understands this keenly. The seven piece neck is constructed with strength and stability in mind and the flat radius (15.7") of the fingerboard coupled with jumbo frets are exactly what's needed to go with that bound Ebony.
In order to harness the brute force of the full 7 strings, Ibanez have collaborated with high-end pickup manufacturer DiMarzio to design the Fusion Edge humbucker: a passive ceramic pickup with a compressed bottom end, scooped out mids and a crisp high end. They are extremely tight sounding which is essential for all of those lurching stop/start riffs.
The RGA succeeds totally in bringing a complex, tight and absolutely heavy sound: if that sounds like your thing, don't waste any time! Come and try one today,
The Flamed Maple top, Nitro Wizard 3pc Maple/Bubinga neck and Ebony fretboard all add up to give the guitar a tight low-end and quick response that is preferred in metal. Other features include a Gibraltar Standard II bridge as well as locking tuners. The new RGA Iron Label is a perfect choice for the metal player looking for a more modern guitar that features the ultimate in both sound and playability.
