Featuring Bare Knuckle Pickups, a 26.5" Scale, 'Nitro Wizard-7' Neck & Gotoh Locking Tuners

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Ibanez Axion Label series encompasses a range of ultra-modern electric guitars designed for the next-generation of metal players. Kitted out with cutting-edge features that you'd expect to find on instruments over double their price, you'll find Ibanez's Axion Label models sporting aftermarket pickups and hardware from industry-leading brands like Fishman, DiMarzio, Gotoh & Schaller. Add exotic tonewoods and striking finishes into the mix — and the result is a stellar, forward-thinking guitar lineup made to meet the heaviest of demands!

Ibanez's RGD71ALPA-CKF is one of the boldest entries to the Axion Label series thus far. Boasting a stealthy black/natural-coloured body with a see-through Ash bevelled edge finish — other key appointments include Bare Knuckle Aftermath-7 humbuckers, Gotoh locking tuners, Schaller S-Locks strap pins, hard-wearing 'Sub Zero'-treated frets and a thin 'Nitro Wizard-7' multi-piece neck with an extended 26.5" scale length that's perfectly-suited for the instrument's extended range.

Did The Captain Just Try to Djent?!? - NEW Ibanez RGD Axion Label Guitars

Contemporary Construction

Ibanez's flagship RG model has always been regarded as a premium guitar built solely for shredders. The RGD71ALPA-CKF perfectly fits that mould, with a sharp body shape featuring deep cutaways that allow for effortless access to all 24 frets. Crafted from Nyatoh and Layered Ash, these sustain-rich materials are complemented by a beautiful Poplar Burl top.

Nitro Wizard Neck

The RGD71ALPA-CKF's bolt-on 5-piece Panga Panga/Walnut neck gives the guitar rigidity with plenty of top-end articulation — perfect for complex riffs or solos that need to cut through in a mix! The super-slender 'Nitro Wizard-7' neck shape makes fast passages a breeze to play too, while the luxurious Macassar Ebony fingerboard comes fitted with wide/tall jumbo frets that offer you maximum control under the fingers.

Bare Knuckle Aftermath-7 Pickups

This elegant instrument is powered by a pair of high-output, UK-wound Bare Knuckle Aftermath-7 humbuckers. Capable of handling copious amounts of gain, these acclaimed pickups deliver an accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids and superb high-end bite. But they're far from being one-trick ponies. That’s because these versatile pickups can dish out crisp and luscious tones with clean settings, especially when you use the coil-tap switch to attain single-coil style sounds.

High-End Hardware

Ibanez has equipped its Axion Label models with only the finest hardware, to guarantee decades of reliable use and sublime playability. The proprietary 'Mono-Rail' bridge is designed for optimal resonance, with its independent saddles ensuring minimal "cross-talk" between the strings for amazing note clarity. The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stabillity, and significantly cuts down string-changing time so that you can spend more time playing!
