Here’s what Ibanez say:
Ibanez has remained the strongest name in metal guitars because of the outstanding playability and peerless performance of Ibanez instruments. From carefully selected materials to pro-level hardware and high-profile electronics, every detail is deeply considered and designed. The Ibanez High Performance series delivers high-end performance and road warrior dependability.
The RG421HPAM features an exotic Ash body top and a Nyatoh body back which create a truly mesmerizing visual aura and a warm, yet expressive, tone. The Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood‘s stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The Roasted Maple fretboard was also heat-treated to help it provide a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. The DiMarzio Air Norton and Tone Zone pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 3-way pickup switch. The Fixed bridge boasts a low profile design, allowing plenty of picking hand freedom while optimizing tuning stability.
