The Ibanez RGD series was first released in 2010 and it can generally be recognised by its bevelled body and extra horn cut. An RGD guitar also has a longer neck scale length of 26.5 inches, which is perfect for experimenting with various different tunings and progressive playing styles. The RGDIX6MRW Iron Label model is new for 2016 and has a distinctive two-layer body top with an eye-catching Charcoal Brown Burst finish.
EXOTIC ROSEWOOD, LAYERED ASH
The RGDIX6MRW Iron Label electric guitar has a construction which incorporates an exotic rosewood top with layered ash to achieve a two-layer effect that combines both light and dark coloured woods for a truly remarkable appearance for an RGD guitar. This use of two different tonewoods produces a range of tight lows to sweet, bright highs, but most of all it just has an unsurpassable look about it.
NITRO WIZARD NECK
Ibanez have fitted a 3-piece Maple / Bubinga neck to the RGDIX6MRW which has an extra long scale length of 26.5 inches. The RGD style of guitar has long been recognised for its capacity to be downtuned, and the RGDIX6MRW is just the same. In fact, the factory standard tuning for this guitar is already in Drop D so you can make new and interesting sounds from the moment you play the guitar.
The 3-piece neck is built to the Nitro Wizard profile which adds strength and stability so that you can play on for hours with complete comfort and reassurance. Aboard the neck is a magnificent Birdseye Maple fingerboard which has 24 jumbo frets which are easy to reach thanks to the deep cutaways in the body. The Maple/Bubinga neck has a smooth playing feel and a sumptuous appearance which perfectly partners the two-layer body.
DIMARZIO FUSION EDGE ELECTRONICS
The RGDIX6MRW Iron Label electric guitar has been equipped with DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups which were initially designed during a collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio. These pickups can comprehensively provide a wealth of articulate and varying tones, whether you’re looking to create heavy noise or more progressive melodies.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Ibanez have fitted a Gibraltar Standard II hardtail bridge which retains a strong connection between the strings and the two-layer body to improve sustain, response and overall tone.
Gotoh MG-T Locking machine heads are fitted to the headstock and each of the machine heads secure tuning accuracy. With black hardware contrasting against the natural wooden appearance, this guitar is overflowing with beauty.
The Ibanez RGDIX6MRW Iron Label Electric Guitar in Charcoal Brown Burst is an amazing new model for 2016 which has many boutique features that make it stand out as soon as you see or hear it, while it also comes equipped with high quality specs at an economical price that musicians can take advantage of.
