The Ibanez RG range of guitars are instantly recognisable by its iconic appearance and enormous sound output. The RGIX20FESM Iron Label guitar has been designed with metal as its primary purpose. It fuses together a selection of superior materials and hardware to deliver a big, heavy sound output and also to give you a comprehensively comfortable feel.
The RGIX20FESM has a spalted maple top which gives the guitar its unique striking pattern and a lightweight feel for added comfort. This is paired with a basswood body which feels slick and strong. The body has a curve where your arm can perfectly sit, while the double cutaways ensure that every fret is within reach.
NITRO WIZARD NECK
The RGIX20FESM is firmly joined with a 3-piece maple / bubinga neck which is shaped to the incredible Nitro Wizard profile. Ibanez have tested this to ensure absolute endurance and stability. The Nitro Wizard profile is really thin which bolsters a faster playing technique while feeling ultimately comfortable. This is an obvious advantage for rock and metal guitarists who enjoy riffing and shredding.
Aboard the neck is a bound ebony fingerboard which bears 24 jumbo frets for you to explore freely, and this is further boosted by the fact that the body has the double cutaways to allow you to access every fret.
The RGIX20FESM is kitted out with two active humbucker pickups for a versatile, balanced output. The EMG 60 is at the neck position which tonally provides a range of broad mids, chiming highs and deep lows. In the bridge position is the EMG 81, which brings balance to the overall sound delivery, providing many searing tones with plenty of sustain.
You have the ability to shape the tone using the Volume and Kill Switch, while a 3-way pickup selector allows you to toggle between the EMGs.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Ibanez have chosen a fixed Gibraltar Standard II bridge to retain a strong connection between the body and strings. This string-through-body hard tail bridge is ideal for the RGIX20FESM Iron Label guitar, improving playability and sound. Cosmo black hardware completes the look and complements the finish.
The RGIX20FESM Iron Label electric guitar is an outstanding model that will serve any metal musician well.
