The Ibanez 2017 RGAIX7U Iron Label Electric Guitar in Antique Brown Stained is an extended range model that offers seven strings of pure joy to play across. By utilising their expertise to perfection, Ibanez combined established features that have made the RG series the model of choice for progressive players for over three decades, whilst catering to the demands of today's players. The result is a tonal monster that offers a joyful playing experience, which is a must for both amateurs and professionals alike.
Sublime RG Body
The RG profile has attracted players from all genres for decades, specifically those who desire a model that lends itself exquisitely to performing with grace and precision. The deep double cutaway horns make it very easy to reach the upper frets in comfort, opening up the fingerboard in its entirety for you to explore. The subtle curves and bevelled edges allows the guitar to rest sweetly against you during performances.
Built exclusively from ash, the body has a lightweight feel that is capable of producing a raucous energy infused with warmth. From a stirring low-end chunk through a bouncy midrange to searing highs, ash is the perfect choice for those who like to perform loud and proud. The finish is an antique brown stain with matching headstock that sets the brooding visual tone.
Fast playing Nitro Wizard-7 neck
The RGAIX7U is fitted with a 3-piece Maple and Bubinga neck, which is shaped to the lightning fast Nitro Wizard-7 profile that makes the addition of an extra string feel as comfortable as if you'd been playing a seven string all your life. The speed at which your fingers can glide along this slender playing support is astounding, and the resilience and strength of the neck instils a confidence in your ability to let loose. Married to the neck is a luxurious bound ebony fingerboard that guarantees smooth transition between each of the 24 jumbo frets on offer.
Bare Knuckle Aftermath Humbuckers
To honour the aggression of the Iron Label line, the RGAIX7U has been bestowed with a pair of Bare Knuckle's Aftermath humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The Aftermaths are designed to deliver a rapid bottom-end response that is perfect for laying huge slab-like riffs, with a punchy midrange that gives way to a face-melting high-end snarl.
In capturing the timbre of the ash, the pickups do a sterling job. But their true power lies in the astonishing versatility of tones offered by the electronics' setup. 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.
Ibanez have fitted a Gibraltar Standard II-7 hardtail bridge to the RGAIX7U model, which retains a strong connection between the strings and the ash body to improve sustain, response and tone. Gotoh locking tuning machines are fitted to the headstock and each one upholds tuning integrity with absolute precision. Black hardware complements the finish beautifully.
The Ibanez 2017 RGAIX7U Iron Label Electric Guitar in Antique Brown Stained is perfect for metallers who want a guitar that is gig-, stage-, or studio-ready from the get go. The stability, precision, and sonic ferocity of this beauty will not fail to please.
