The Ibanez RG370AHMZ electric guitar is a double-cutaway style model that is built with speed and precision at its core. It's true that this is a shred-machine, with over three decades of Ibanez wizardry going into the creation of this gorgeous model. The playability, versatility, and reliability of the RG370AHMZ should put if at the top of any discerning guitarist's wish list.
The body is built using Ash, which has a very lightweight feel. The body has been carefully shaped to maximise comfortability during performances. Though it may be slender and light, the solid ash produces a fat, but well-balanced tonality. Thanks to its muscular midrange, with a hint of softness and breathiness, the body yields superb dynamics, with plenty of articulation that is brimming with energy.
Ibanez's guitars are renowned for their neck designs, and the RG370AHMZ benefits from their passion for crafting super slim, super strong, and super fast-playing necks. This particular model has a Wizard III 3-piece maple neck, designed to facilitate lighting fast playing, rewarding accuracy and precision whilst forgiving players who are building up their chops. Married to the neck is a bound maple fingerboard, home to 24-frets for a two-octave range, and adorned with dot fingerboard inlays.
The Ibanez RG370AHMZ is armed with a powerful electronics setup, with Quantum pickups carrying out the task of providing a huge dynamic range that is bursting at the seams with tonal versatility. The neck pickup produces a fat sound that is great for chords and rhythm playing, whilst the bridge pickup is bristling with high-end energy, which makes it great for strict shred and pinch harmonics.
The middle pickup offers a generous representation of the ash and thanks to the 5-way pickup selector switch, you can blend together the neck and middle, and bridge and middle pickups with ease, or isolate each pickup. The master volume and master tone switches keep tonal control nice and simple, allowing you to free your mind to get on with performing.
Ibanez trem systems are some of the best in the world. The RG370AHMZ comes with the Edge-Zero II with Zero Point System (ZPS), making tuning simple and thoroughly stable. There is a back stop to prevent the guitar from going out of tune if you snap a string, but if you prefer to dive and bend with abandon, then the ZPS is removable too. The tremolo's spring tension is adjustable without the need to remove panels, thanks to the manual adjustment wheel on the back of the guitar.
The Ibanez RG370AHMZ electric guitar is the perfect companion for guitarists who need a model that allows them to play with absolute freedom, but who are also focused on affordability. At this price tag, the RG370AHMZ sets the bar when it comes to high performance-high value guitars.
