The Ibanez 2018 RG970QMZ Premium Electric Guitar in Black Ice Burst is a professional level model at an affordable price. If you're a gigging guitarist who wants a reliable model that plays like a dream and sounds amazing, then this is the model for you. Every model is supplied with a soft case to get yours from home to gig in style.

Cool RG body

Whether you're practising at home, playing with friends, or performing on a stadium stage, performing in comfort is a must. The RG970QMZ adheres to the classic RG design we've all come to know and love, which offers superior playability for those who like to perform fearlessly. The slim body depth is coupled with ergonomically designed contours that ensure the RG970QMZ sits just right. The double-cutaways remove any obstacle from your path, giving you unfettered access to the highest frets.

Built using basswood, the body retains a lightweight feel, and permits you the freedom to move around freely. The basswood produces a hearty mid-range energy, with tempered low-end that doesn't create muddiness, and a softened high-end for hot tones without becoming piercing. Married to the basswood is a beautiful quilted maple top, which is finished in black ice burst with matching headstock.

Lightning-fast neck

Ibanez RG series' models are renowned for their easy to play, lightning fast neck, and the RG970QMZ is no exception to this rule. Built using a combination of panga panga/maple/walnut/purpleheart, the 11-piece construction offers peerless strength and resilience. You can glide along freely thanks to the Wizard profile, safe in the knowledge that this beauty can take everything that you can throw at it.

Paired with the neck is a bound panga panga fingerboard, which has been treated to Ibanez' Premium fret edge treatment for seamless transitions between each and every fret. The 24 frets at your disposal at decorated with mother-of-pearl off-set dot inlays, as well as luminescent side dot inlays to guide your way on the darkest of stages.

DiMarzio pickups

The Ibanez 2018 RG970QMZ is equipped with a trio of DiMarzio pickups with an Air Norton, a True Velvet, and The Tone Zone in the neck, middle, and bridge positions respectively. The DiMarzios are perfect for making the most of the tonewood's versatility, and are fantastic for generating a huge dynamic range for you to take advantage of. Whatever kind of musical style you wish to execute, these pickups will see you through, but if you're a fusion, rock, or metal player, then you will adore how much they open when you give them a push in the right direction.

Gig-ready hardware

The Ibanez 2018 RG970QMZ Premium Electric Guitar in Black Ice Burst is equipped with an Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge with Zero Point 3Fe locking system. Adjusting over the bridge couldn't be simpler, thanks to the dial in the spring cavity that can be attenuated with ease - a bonus for those who like to perform elaborate trem bar gymnastics. The headstock is home to Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads, which uphold tuning integrity with precision throughout the most bombastic of performances, allowing you to rock out to your heart's content.
