Here's what Ibanez says about the RG60ALS-BAM Axion Label:
The Axion Label was made for metal, but offers even more for the adventurous players out there. The Axion Label models feature forward-looking developments in sound, playability and looks that take performances higher, deeper and heavier. Arm yourself with an Axion Label guitar and get ready to break some new ground.
The RG60ALS features a Nyatoh body in a stunning Black Aurora Burst Matte finish, giving the model an otherworldly color scheme. The Macassar Ebony fretboard provides a tight low end with a quick response and the extremely rigid, super-thin and ultra-playable Nitro Wizard 5-piece Panga Panga/Walnut neck substantially increases sustain.
The Sub Zero treated frets can stand up against the hardest riffing and string-bending. The luminescent side dot inlays make it easy for players to perform on dark stages and match the dazzling luminescent Ibanez headstock logo.
The DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups which were the result of a direct collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez provide great clarity and a very smooth response, satisfying the current demands of players in today’s progressive metal scene. A SUSTAINIAC Driver in the neck position offers endless sustain and stimulates a player's creativity.
The Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge provides exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment and playing comfort. The Schaller S-Lock strap lock pins hold the guitar securely but make it easy to put the strap on and off quickly. The RG60ALS represents a new level for the modern guitarist.
