Nothing breathes inspiration into your playing like the feel of a precision made instrument, capable of interpreting your every move with power and accuracy. Enter the Ibanez RGA— a solid body specifically built to handle the heaviest, most physically demanding music you can conjure up. The RGA’s unique, sleekly sculpted top offers unrestricted playability for full-throttle power chording or heavy riffing without fear of digging into the body.
With metal and nothing but metal in mind, we modded and tweaked until we got to the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability we took our legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard – as fast and comfortable but with added road-tested durability. Whether it’s a 6, 7 or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG® or DiMarzio® pickups. Purposefully Spartan, you won’t find a feature here that doesn’t contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead.
Nitro Wizard Neck
Legendary Super-thin, ultra-playable neck with road-tested durability.
The tight grain of Ebony provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low-end with the quick response needed for metal.
Gibraltar Standard II Bridge
The Gibraltar Standard II is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar’s body and provide optimal transfer of each string’s vibration. Smooth surface is designed to maximize playing comfort.
Coil Tap Switch
Flipping the switch chooses between a pickups full output-for a more modern voice, or a lower output-to provide a more vintage-like tone.
Bare Knuckle Aftermath Pickups
Hand-wound in UK, Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation.
Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
