The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this RG421 to become a high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength.
With a Fixed Bridge, black hardware and powerful Quantum pickups, you can be sure that classic RG sound cuts through with clarity and precision.
The Limited Run Poplar Burl top gives the guitar a classy, expensive look which will stand out on any stage. With the RG421PB-SBF you get a guitar that is both visually and sonically impressive.
