The Ibanez RGA42FM Standard Electric Guitar in Blue Lagoon Burst Flat is an outstanding model that comes at an economical price. The Ibanez RGA series takes the RG guitar and gives it a unique sculpted top which enhances the overall feel of the guitar for improved playability. The RGA42FM brings together a fine selection of tonewood with superb hardware to produce an excellent range of sounds.

Sleek double cutaway body

The RGA42FM benefits from a solidbody construction to give it a sturdy and resilient feel in the hands. However, comfortability is maximised thanks to the slender body depth, ergonomically designed curves and sleek bevelled edges. It features the iconic Ibanez double cutaway horns in the body for greater access to the upper frets, something which is often not the case in other electric guitars. In some ways, the RGA42FM is influenced by the superb JEM guitar which was designed by and for Steve Vai, allowing for heavy riffs and plenty of shredding.

The body is constructed using mahogany, which lays the foundation for a smooth, warm midrange energy. Married to the body is a gorgeous flamed maple top that has been treated to a divine blue lagoon burst flat finish.

Fast playing Wizard III neck

A smooth maple neck is firmly fitted to the RGA42FM which feels incredibly comfortable in your hand, all thanks to its slim contours. The neck is shaped to the Wizard III profile, so it has a thin, flat feel that promotes faster playing and makes it much easier to soar through arpeggio and legato technique with ease. You can rely on the neck for durability and stability, making it the perfect playing platform to perform on whilst reinforcing its resilience.

Topping the neck is a jatoba fingerboard, which is home to 24 jumbo frets that offer a two-octave range for you to explore. The luxurious playing surface is magnificent, and paired with the double cutaways in the body, all restrictions have been removed to ensure that every single fret is within easy reach.

Dual Quantum pickups

Ibanez have kitted the RGA42FM out with dual Quantum humbucker pickups, with one at the bridge position and another at the neck position. These hot humbuckers elevate your pick attack and open a universe of tones, with a very coherent high-end right through to an impressively quick bass response.

You can easily switch between the pickups using the 5-way toggle selector, while the master Volume and Tone controls allow you to sculpt and shape your output.

Hardware and finish

Fitted to the body is a fixed bridge to the body, which creates a seamless transition between the strings and body to improve intonation and sustain. As one would expect from Ibanez, the hardware works exquisitely throughout to maintain consistency of tone and string tension for a peerless performance.

The Ibanez RGA42FM Standard Electric Guitar in Blue Lagoon Burst Flat is perfect for new and experienced players alike. Those who are embarking on their musical journey will struggle to find a better model for honing their skills on at such an affordable price. For players who are seeking a reliable touring partner or solid model for practising, jamming, and recording with, the RGA42FM is the ideal choice.
