Here's what Ibanez says about the RGA42HPT-LBM:
Ibanez guitars have been the strongest name in Metal guitars for their outstanding playability and performance. Selected materials, high-profile electronics and hardware, every detail is deeply considered and designed.
Ibanez High Performance series delivers high-end performance and road warrior dependability. It features a Nyatoh body which creates a truly mesmerizing visual aura and a warm, yet expressive, tone. Its contoured top not only looks sleek—it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player’s right forearm rests.
A Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood‘s stability and durability. It provides a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. A Jatoba fretboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering up and down the full length of the fretboard. It has luminescent side dot position marks to make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups, the amazing product of a collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez. DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups provide great clarity and a very smooth response, satisfying the current demands of players in today’s progressive metal scene. A Double Locking tremolo bridge provides exceptional tuning stability and playing comfort.
