The Ibanez Prestige Roadcore RC1320 electric guitar in dark brown sunburst finish delivers a professional quality model at an attainable price. Combining vintage style with modern appointments, the Roadcore Series of models offer a thoroughly adaptable guitar that is suited to a wide range of musical style from subtle and chilled out to high gain driven metal. Most importantly, it plays like an absolute dream!
Following in the fashion of earlier Roadcore models, the slim profile body has been shaped with a sleek double-cutaway, which enables greater access to the higher frets. Crafted using dense mahogany the RC1320 produces a complex timbre that is filled with warmth and power. It may look like a vintage-style model, with a hint of the mahogany's grain shining through the sophisticated dark brown sunburst finish, but the RC1320 has plenty going on in the 'pickup department' to satisfy the most demanding of heavy rockers.
One thing that hasn’t altered with the introduction of the Roadcore series of models is Ibanez’s focus on playability. The RC-profile plays fast and clean, and adhering to the vintage styling, the maple neck looks as smooth as silk. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard with 22-medium frets, which have been given Ibanez's Prestige fret edge treatment to guarantee the smoothest possible playing feel as you transition between frets.
Complementing the mahogany/rosewood tonewood combination perfectly, the Ibanez Roadcore RC1320 has been fitted with a pair of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, with a 59 in the neck and a JB in the bridge. The pairing of a 59 and a JB is a well-established partnership that is suited to a huge range of applications from country to metal. The consistency of the output is matched by the vast dynamic range and control ensured by this setup. Whether you're looking to carve out subtle cleans or bombastic grunt, you'll never be disappointed with this duo at your disposal. Control comes in the form of a 3-way pickup selector switch, as well as a master volume pot and a master tone pot. Sure Grip III knobs have been fitted to provide precise control, putting the power firmly on your side.
The body is fitted with a tight-tune bridge, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for spot-on intonation and improved sustain. Adjustment is very easy, whilst the chrome tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. Gotoh Magnum Lock tuning machines guarantee the highest level of accuracy in upholding tuning integrity, so no matter how much you bend the strings or how enthusiastically you attack this beauty, your tuning will remain perfect throughout.
The Ibanez Prestige Roadcore RC1320 electric guitar in dark brown sunburst has been designed and built for gigging musicians to hit the road with the most competent of touring partners. Not only are you guaranteed total control with minimum effort, but you also benefit from premium appointments that are usually associated with considerably more expensive models. Completing the package, Ibanez has even included a hardshell case to get you to the gig with maximum security.
