The Ibanez 2018 RGIX6DLB Iron Label Electric Guitar in Supernova Burst is the perfect model for those who want a guitar that takes no prisoners. If your musical tastes veers more into the heavier side of things, then this is the guitar for you.
Sleek RG body profile
The Iron Label series has established itself as the weapon of choice for fearless players who want a model than can be pushed to the limit night after night on stage. Built to the ever-faithful RG body profile, the RGIX6DLB is crafted using ash, which is lightweight yet feels quite substantial, and produces a rich mid-range warmth in the process. Paired with the ash is a laurel burl top, which is finished in a mesmerising supernova burst to ensure you'll stand out on stage. Whether you're laying down low-end groove, cutting through with tight and articulate riffs, or sailing over the tops with a scintillating solo, the RGIX6DLB has you covered.
As noted, the body is shaped to the RG body profile, giving it beautifully swept curves and deep cutaways to allow unfettered access to the neck and body in their entirety.
Nitro Wizard neck
Joined to the body is a solid three-piece maple/purpleheart neck, which offers a reassuringly sturdy playing support as you rock out. Ibanez know a thing or two when it comes to crafting comfortable necks, and the nitro wizard profile on this beauty guarantees that you'll be smashing through scales at lightspeed. Paired with the neck is sumptuous 24-fret ebony fingerboard, which is decorated with luminescent side dot position inlays to guide your way on the darkest of stages. Fingerboard binding affords seamless transitions between each and every fret for the smoothest of performances.
The Ibanez 2018 RGIX6DLB is equipped with a pair of DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers, which are designed to deliver the full sonic potential of the Iron Label guitar. Producing an aggressive yet focused output, the Fusion Edge pickups are brilliant for those who have a highly dynamic playing style. If you're one for hammering staccato chops that include chunky palm-muted riffs with two-handed tapping over the top, then these little dynamos are everything that you could have hoped for - and more.
With a coil-tap switch at your disposal, you can unlock greater tone-shaping potential to take expand your tonal universe even further.
