Like every genre, Heavy Metal music has its traditions. Drop tuned power chords, screaming solos and plenty of distortion. The RGIR20BFE 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 amazing value for money there a great choice for any budding shredder.
Great Mid Range Tone
Don't get lost in the mix, the combination of a mahogany body with EMG 60 and 81 pickups, designed for great mid range response and high gain articulation, mean this guitar has plenty of attack. The rosewood fretboard takes a little edge off of the tone, especially useful with fresh strings, rounding out the top end and giving you a warmer tone.
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 flat, thin 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.
