Thin Simple Design
It wouldn't be an RG without a beautifully thin Wizard style neck with a flat back so you can get around it easily with nothing getting in the way of your playing. Made with a thin basswood body and 5 piece maple/walnut neck this guitar has a great midrange focus that is amazing for when you need to break into your next big solo.
Where Ibanez shine though is with incredible high quality hardware that is not available elsewhere. On this guitar you will find the amazing Edge Zero knife edge tremolo system the ZPS3 zero point system. This unique tremolo system is very easy to set up with the zero point control on the back of the body. No longer do you have to open up the back of your guitar and dig in with a screwdriver to adjust spring tension. Now you can just rotate the zero point adjuster on the back of the guitar and it will instantly adjust spring tension.
Next up you have a set of brand new pickups for this guitar with a DiMarzio Air Norton, True Velvet and a The Tone Zone. These pickups are not the hottest pickups available but they can still handle a lot of gain. Because these pickups are not the hottest you really can use this guitar in pretty much any situation from pop to downtuned metal without an issue.You do not have to give up on playability for versatility.
