Like every genre, Heavy Metal music has its traditions. Drop tuned power chords, screaming solos and plenty of distortion. The RG652KFX is designed to handle even the heaviest of riffs with great mid range tone to help you cut through the mix. Over three decades the Ibanez RG has been a heavy hitter in the world of metal. With a modern design, great playability and a beautiful Buckeye top these are a great choice for any budding shredder.
Great Mid Range Tone
Don't get lost in the mix, the combination of an American Basswood body with DiMarzio AirNorton and Tone ZOne pickups, designed for great mid range response, mean this guitar has plenty of attack. The rosewood fretboard is beautiful and further boosts that mid range punch.
A fixed bridge gives you better sustain (great for soloing) and helps stop you going out of tune. When you're using drop tunings a floating bridge needs adjusting to keep the string tension right, fixed bridges don't need so much attention, great if you want to switch between tunings quickly.
Built for speed
Ibanez's necks are strong, flat and very fast. Just right for quick shredding. Deep Cutaways give you great access to the upper frets, you get a better range for soloing and a flat fretboard that's great for string bending.
The top wood is Australian blackwood with a basswood body for a lightweight resonant feel. Both woods are combined to give you a quick attack with a complex character. If you want to shred, you'll need a guitar that can match your speed and that's why the basswood body has been used.
