The Ibanez RG is a modern classic guitar, with its sharp and elegant aesthetics catching the eyes of hard rockers and metalheads since the late '80s. The RGA42EXBAM is an affordable version of this iconic high-performance formula, but keeps many signature features intact.
Key specs include a super-fast Wizard III neck, powerful Quantum series pickups, stealthy black hardware and a stunning Black Aurora Burst Matte finish to boot!
Ibanez's RG model has always been a cutting-edge instrument built for contemporary players seeking superb playability. With a medium-weight Meranti body, the RGA42EXBAM is comfortable for playing long live sets with, and you can expect a full sound thanks to the wood's balanced tonal qualities. Deep body cutaways and ergonomic contours allow for effortless access to all 24 of the RGA's jumbo frets too!
Wizard III Neck
A bolt-on Maple neck ensures a snappy response with lots of mid-range projection, perfect for complex riffs or solos that need plenty of cut in frantic mixes. Shaped to Ibanez's notoriously thin, flat and fast Wizard III profile, this neck makes fast passages simply a breeze to play - yet has plenty of strength and sturdiness to keep your tuning in check.
Proprietary Quantum Pickups
Ibanez's Quantum humbuckers will handle high doses of gain with ease. Giving you lots of crushing mid-range and precise top-end clarity, these are perfect for heavier genres of music with their accelerated bass response guaranteeing fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffs.
