Here's what Ibanez says about the RG6PPBFX-TSR Premium:
Designed to Inspire. All Ibanez Premium series models are manufactured using select tone woods, high-profile electronics, sturdy hardware and are built by the dedicated skills of master craftsmen. The richness of sound, stunning appearance and unrivalled playability of the Ibanez Premium series will open the gates of your reservoir of inspiration.
One of the finest Premium models, the RG6PPBFX, comes with a wide range of distinctive features that will motivate any guitarist. The RG6PPBFX features a stunning Poplar Burl top with a beautiful Tropical Seafloor finish.
The RG6PPBFX's 11pc Wizard neck is made of Maple, Walnut and Purpleheart which contributes to the neck’s extreme rigidity and massive sustain. The Ebony fretboard provides a tight response and features Jescar EVO gold frets with Premium fret edge treatment. Jescar EVO gold frets are known for their bright tone, gorgeous gold appearance and player-friendly features such as long durability and smooth note bending. The luminescent side dot inlays makes it easy for players to see while on dark stages.
Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver a bright and wickedly expressive tone, transmitting a quick bottom-end response for picking and fast riffing along with a dynamic midrange and precise high-end articulation. The coil-tap switch unleashes the Aftermath pickup’s full output (for a modern voice) or a lower output signal (for a vintage tone).
Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings and facilitates flawless intonation. The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability and make string-changing quick and easy. A gig bag is included.
