Like every genre, Heavy Metal music has its traditions. Drop tuned power chords, screaming solos and plenty of distortion. The RG921WBB 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 IZH pickups, designed for great mid range response, mean this guitar has plenty of attack. The wenge 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 smooth, strong 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. Ibanez have also given this model their new Premium Fret Edge treatment, rounding off the edges for a better, more comfortable, feel.
Buckeye Burl Top
The real highlight of this guitar is the top, a 2 piece buckeye burl top makes this really stand out. Famously a difficult wood to work with it's rare to see outside top of the range custom guitars. The interesting swirl pattern is mirrored down the middle of the guitar for a stunning symmetry. What can you see in the face of each guitar?
