The Ibanez RG series contains, without doubt, the most well-known, quintessential Ibanez guitars. First crafted in the late 80s, the RG has since remained one of the primary choices when it comes to playing metal and heavy rock. The RG421 is an RG Standard model which brings together all of the incredible qualities of this series, from the fast neck to the double cutaway body, ensuring a comprehensively comfortable feel and eye-catching appearance.
SOLID MAHOGANY BODY
A solidbody electric guitar provides you with a wealth of powerful tones with lots of sustain and volume to boot. The RG421 is constructed from solid mahogany, a tonewood which brings depth and warmth to the forefront while remaining very well-balanced. The RG body features the instantly recognisable double cutaways which allow for very easy access to the upper frets.
WIZARD III NECK
One of the most impressive features of the RG421 has to be its superior Wizard III maple neck. The maple offers an exceedingly smooth playing surface while the Wizard III profile has a thin, flat shape that promotes rapid playability while ensuring a strong, durable construction in your hand.
Paired with the maple neck is a two-octave 24-fret rosewood fingerboard which opens up a world of tones. White dot inlays embellish the frets to lead you as you work your way up and down the frets. The aforementioned double cutaway certainly assists in reaching those higher notes, so you can take full advantage of all 24 frets.
Ibanez have elected dual Quantum humbucker pickups to amplify the RG421 guitar, with one in the neck position and another in the bridge position. These hot humbuckers produce a potent sound whether you're a typical rock guitarist or perhaps looking to explore a wider range of tones in other genres. The pickups accurately translate your attack, providing a faster bass response and a coherent high-end.
This set of dual humbuckers can be controlled by the 5-way toggle switch combined with the master Volume and master Tone controls.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The RG421 is fitted with a fixed bridge; its construction ensures that the connection between strings and body is firmly retained in order to improve sustain and tone.
Cosmo black hardware complements the Light Violin Burst finish, from the bridge and pickups to the tuning keys on the headstock. The RG421 is a continuation of an already awesome line of electric guitars expertly crafted by Ibanez.
