Ibanez RGDIX7MPB-SBB Surreal Blue Burst Flat
Manufacturer's ID: RGDIX7MPB-SBB
What we say:
This exotic 7 string has a real desert-island beauty to it! Coming from Ibanez's Iron Range, this extended range beast is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
With a scale length measuring a full inch longer than standard to accommodate both the low B string and the down-tuning that routinely occurs in today's heavier musical styles, this guitar feels large and powerful like a Claymore sword. Its three piece Maple and Bubinga neck has jumbo frets, no fret markers and a beautiful, bright look due to the choice Birdseye Maple fingerboard.
The body is immediately striking: layers of Ash combine with a heavily figured slice of Poplar Burl to make for a dramatic top. The Poplar section is finished in an oceanic-looking Surreal Blue Burst (though it's as much green as it is blue if you ask us) whilst the Ash layers have been left natural. This artistic decision really works, especially as the Poplar doesn't extend to the entire body: all of the visible contours remain natural looking and it's this contrast that really seals the deal visually.
Hardware-wise, we are in inspired-yet-sensible ground. A Gibraltar high-mass hard tail bridge keeps things in check down that end, whilst a brace of Gotoh locking tuners provide some high-end quality where it's needed!
Speaking of high-end, the pickups are a unique collaboration between Ibanez and US pickup giants DiMarzio. Called the Fusion Edge, these have been specifically developed for the Iron Label range: the Fusion Edges have a tight, compressed low end and crisp highs with a more subtle midrange. They deliver a massive sound that still retains articulation.
This RGD has extremely high standards and these standards are filtered through to the tone, feel and ultimately your playing.
