Sometimes a guitar completely stands out in a lineup and this is one of those guitars. The Ibanez Premium RG927WZCZ is a stunning 7 string guitar thanks to its use of a Ziricote top. This wood is not something you will see everyday and will certainly stand out on stage next to those boring old gloss finished single colour guitars.
The RG series now has 5 different variants. You're looking at the RG Premium which is underpinned by 3 principles: Precision, Performance and Playability. To get this guitar playing at its best, the guys at Ibanez asked for insights and suggestions from musicians around the world to create a guitar that you just cant put down. With the RG927WZCZ you're looking at the latest manufacturing and design innovations from Ibanez.
Woods to Drool Over
As we said before the Ziricote top is gorgeous. This rare wood is not commonly found on guitars especially on guitars at this price point. It has been placed on top of the usual high quality American Basswood body to make sure that your sound stay crisp and clear while still cutting through the mix.
The 5 piece neck is made out of some different woods that you may not be used to seeing on an electric guitar. Instead of the usual Ibanez choice of maple and walnut they have instead gone for the stronger, darker coloured choice of wenge and bubinga. Normally used on bass necks these woods are stronger and can handle higher string tension making this the perfect guitar for downtuning.
Your Tone Anywhere
We all know how bad it can be to turn up to a gig and not be able to get the sound you want out of the house gear. Part of that pain is taken away with these DiMarzio IBZ pickups designed to work specifically with the Ibanez RG. They have a relatively flat yet clear response and a fairly hot output so whatever sound you want you know you are carrying around a versatile guitar that can get your sound.
More Control For You
The Ibanez designed Edge Zero II tremolo is a great tremolo that does not fall out of tune no matter how hard you hit it. If that was all it would be great but Ibanez didn't want to leave it there so their introduced the Zero Point system. WIth this small control on the back of the guitar you can adjust the spring tension quickly and easily so your guitar always plays as it should. No more worrying about cracking open the back of your guitar just before you hit the stage.
