The RG421 is a new and exclusive model by Ibanez, but as with many RG models it remains instantly recognisable. The RG421 has a clean and simple appearance with an unmistakable sound output. Crafted using high quality tonewoods, hardware and electronics, this is a worthy addition for your guitar collection.
The RG421 has a solid body which is made from mahogany and shaped with the typical deep double cutaways. The body shape facilitates access to even the higher registers of the neck, while its shape allows it to sit comfortably against the player. Mahogany has a lightweight feel, so for the more enthusiastic guitarists this is ideal onstage as it is unlikely to wear you down.
A smooth maple neck is firmly fitted to the RG421 and has the wonderful Wizard III neck profile. The Wizard III maple neck is slim and flat yet it also feels reliable and strong. The neck is built to take on even the most exhaustive playing techniques, so no matter how heavy your style is, the neck can endure it.
Topping the neck is a rosewood fingerboard which hosts a total of 24 jumbo frets, providing you with two whole octaves to explore. The fingerboard features decorate white dot inlays to guide you. The neck is perfect for musicians who prefer rapid riffing and performing intricate solos.
Quantum H Electronics
The RG421 Spot Run is powered by two Quantum H pickups which reside in the neck and bridge positions. For explosive leads, staccato solos or thick rhythm guitar, the Quantum H humbucking pickups can achieve it all.
Master Volume and Tone controls allow you to accurately shape your sound while a 5-way pickup switch blends and separates the pickups.
Hardware and Finish
A fixed bridge is fitted to the lower bout of the RG421, maintaining a strong connection between the body and strings. At the opposite end of the guitar, the sharp Ibanez headstock is fitted with reliable tuners to ensure that each string stays in tune even after a heavy performance.
The clean colour of the RG421 is matched with slick Cosmo black hardware for a neat finish that stands out onstage or in the studio.
