With a focus on metal and rock musicians, the re-introduction of the RGA series under the new Ibanez Iron Label range continues with the beautiful Ibanez RGAIX7FM Seven String Electric Guitar. The RGAIX7FM has the distinctive sharp Ibanez double cutaway profile with an extra low string for added grunt. The Iron Label range is marketed as 'metal to the core' and whether you're looking to 'djent', shred or sweep this guitar can handle it all.
FLAMED MAPLE AND MAHOGANY
Ibanez have elected specific tonewoods to construct the RGAIX7FM Seven String Electric Guitar. The body is entirely made from mahogany and is paired with a stunning flamed maple top. Flamed maple not only looks the part, but it works beautifully alongside the mahogany to produce a quick response which is what most metal musicians of the present day tend to prefer.
NITRO WIZARD-7 NECK
The RGAIX7FM is fitted with a 3-piece Maple / Purpleheart neck which partners the body to allow the guitar to produce very tight low-ends. The Maple / Purpleheart neck is built to the Nitro Wizard profile which ensures it remains sturdy and reliable over the years however, it also feels incredibly comfortable as you rapidly glide along the frets. Married to the neck is a bound ebony fingerboard which is home to 24 jumbo frets for you to experiment with.
DIMARZIO FUSION EDGE PICKUPS
As the result of a direct collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio, the Fusion Edge pickups were born, and the RGAIX7FM is fitted with these particular pickups which is a great advantage for modern metal guitarists. The DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups are known for their ability to provide a comprehensively balanced, articulate and transparent range of smooth tones.
A coil tap switch is also included on this model, which allows you to experiment further with the world of resonant tones made available to you by using split coil options combined with the volume pot and 3-way pickup selector switch to shape your sound.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Ibanez have fitted a Gibraltar Standard II-7 hardtail bridge to the RGAIX7FM model which retains a strong connection between the strings and the ash body to improve sustain, response and tone.
Gotoh MG-T Locking machine heads are fitted to the headstock and each of the machine heads uphold tuning integrity with complete accuracy and allowing for rapid string changes. Coupled with the black hardware, this guitar has quintessential metal styling.
The Ibanez RGAIX7FM Iron Label Seven String Electric Guitar is a worthy addition to any rock or metal guitarists arsenal. Loaded with high-quality specs, this guitar is bound to please those looking to chug and those looking to shred.
