The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged the RG guitars to become high-performance machines, honed for both speed and strength.
With a Fixed Bridge, black hardware and powerful Quantum pickups, you can be sure that the classic RG sound cuts through with clarity and precision. The addition of a 7th string can let you play some de-tuned heavy filth, with the focussed pickups offering definition and punch even on the lowest string.
The stealthy all-black finish provides a pure-metal look, getting approval from all the metalheads in your audience! With the RG7421-BK you get a guitar that is both visually and sonically impressive, punching well above its weight.
