The RGAIX7U-ABS is a gorgeous looking, rugged 7-string that you could easily take on the road. The sublime, thin wizard neck allows you to shred the 7 strings like you're playing on a 6 string.
Bare Knuckle Aftermath Pickups
One of the coolest things about this guitar is the incredible Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups. They give you a super-tigh low-end response and sweet singing tops for your lead solos. Make no mistake, this guitar is a beast and practically made for hard rock and heavy metal.
Gibraltar Stand II-7 Bridge
The string-thru bridge will give you bucket-loads of sustain and increased tuning stability. It provides plenty of contact with the body wood, transferring every note you play and allowing it to resonate through the body. This in turns goes into your pickups and provides you with powerful guitar tones!
The Ebony board provides you with a snappy response meaning your guitar tone cuts through the mix. This premium feature looks gorgeous and feels incredible to fret on too.
Here's what Ibanez say about the RGAIX7U-ABS
With the growing popularity of the Iron Label series, Ibanez continues to tap into the seismic underworld for inspiration.
Working its famous RGA body shape from the chassis up, the RGAIX7U has been designed to add some dark, dramatic flair to the brand’s no-frills, made-for-metal lineup. This striking 7-string electric guitar brings an air of mystique to the Iron Label line.
The guitar’s transparent, flat-finished Ash body creates a truly mesmerizing aura and a warm yet expressive tone. Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver a bright and expressive tone.
They provide a quick bottom-end response for not only picking and fast riffing but also dynamic midrange and precise high-end articulation. The coil-tap switch offers a pickup’s full output (for a modern voice) or low output (for a vintage tone).
The combination of the tight grained Ebony fingerboard and the legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Nitro Wizard neck provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low end with quick response.
Gotoh locking tuners stay in tune for a while, provide tuning accuracy, and allow for quick, efficient string changing. The Gibraltar Standard II is united with the guitar’s body to provide the optimal transfer of each string’s vibration. All elements elevate this model to a new level for the modern guitarist.
