Ibanez RGA42HPQM-BIG Electric Guitar in Blue Iceberg Gradation

Featuring DiMarzio Pickups, a Roasted Maple Neck & Luminescent Side Dots

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Ibanez RGA42HPQM-BIG is a modern metal-centric guitar made to suit the next-generation of players. Boasting a gorgeous "Gradation" finish with see-through bevelled cutaways — other key appointments include DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers, a super-solid F106 bridge and a thin 'Wizard III' Roasted Maple neck.

Contemporary Construction

Ibanez's flagship RG model has always been regarded as a premium guitar built solely for shredders. The RGA42HPQM-BIG perfectly fits that mould, with a stealthily-sharp body shape featuring deep cutaways that allow for effortless access to all 24 frets. Crafted from Nyatoh, this balanced and sustain-rich material is complemented by a beautiful arched Quilted Maple top that conveys a truly high-end aesthetic.

Wizard III Neck

The RGA42HPQM-BIG's bolt-on Roasted Maple neck gives the guitar rock-solid rigidity with plenty of top-end articulation — perfect for complex riffs or solos that need to cut through in a mix! The thin, flat and fast 'Wizard III' neck profile makes intricate passages a breeze to play too, while the juicy Jatoba fingerboard comes fitted with wide/tall jumbo frets that offer you maximum control under the fingers.

DiMarzio Fusion Edge Pickups

This elegant instrument is powered by a pair of high-output DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers. Collaboratively designed by Ibanez and DiMarzio, Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful tone with a crisp, cutting high-end and a tight, compressed bottom end — minus any muddy mid-range. You can even attain crisp single-coil style sounds via the thoughtfully-added coil-tap switch too!

High-Quality Hardware

Ibanez has equipped its RGA42HPQM-BIG model with superb hardware appointments, to guarantee decades of reliable use and sublime playability. The smoothly-machined F106 bridge follows a no-nonsense fixed design; ensuring optimal string resonance and allowing you to easily make action and intonation adjustments. Proprietary tuners keep things stable, especially with the straight headstock design that reduces friction at the nut and prevents unwanted tuning slips.
