The Ibanez 2017 RG950WFMZ electric guitar with tiger eye finish is a fast playing beauty for dynamic guitarists who demand the best. The established RG series of models have been the go-to guitars of many virtuosos, including the enigmatic Steve Vai, and to play one is to appreciate why. The familiarity of the playing feel is coupled with a dynamic and punchy response that is perfect for hard rock, fusion, and metal. If you're looking for a guitar that allows you to tear it up, and looks pretty stunning at the same time, then the RG950WFMZ is the perfect answer.
Awesome RG body profile
The sleek double-cutaway body profile has been ergonomically designed with smooth curves that allow the RG950WFMZ to rest snugly against the body during performances for the most comfortable playing position possible. The body has been crafted using a carefully balanced combination of an American Basswood for the back, coupled with a heavenly flamed maple top. The lightweight feel belies the impressive tonal output produced by this partnership, delivering everything from a hearty low-end growl to soaring highs.
Ibanez know a thing or two about crafting exceptional necks - gaining invaluable experience through collaborations with some of the world's finest players including Joe Satriani and Steve Vai -, and the RG950WFMZ benefits from this expertise. The 5-piece wenge/bubinga neck is peerless with regard to its playability, articulation, and ability to produce miles of sustain. If you're looking for a neck that enables you to play at lightning fast speeds, and rewards precision with exquisite articulation, then you'll love the Wizard profile. Guaranteeing efficiency of movement, executing advanced techniques such as arpeggios, delightfully fast legato, and multi-finger tapping is much less cumbersome.
Married to the neck is a delightful bound wenge fingerboard, which is home to 24-jumbo frets. Treated to Ibanez's premium fret edge treatment, you are afforded the ability to make seamless transitions across each and every fret with the greatest of ease. The deep double-cutaway body profile means that upper fret access is delightfully comfortable. Mother of Pearl offset dot position inlays allow you to navigate the fingerboard in style.
The RG950WFMZ is fitted with a trio of IBZ pickups. You don't have to be a neo-classical shredder for these pickups to compliment your style - they respond beautifully to anything and everything from jazz to funk to metal to country. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a five-way pickup selector, with master volume and tone pots to make life simple. However, don't let the simplicity of the electronics setup fool you, as the rich complexity of the tonewoods' timbre is translated with the utmost transparency by the awesome pickups.
Fitted to the body is an Edge Zero II locking tremolo with ZPS3Fe Zero Point System. What this means is that string tension can be adjusted with your finger on the back of the guitar without having to use a hex wrench. Performing deep dives, wailing highs or subtle vibrato is easy thanks to the smooth and responsive feel.
The RG950WFMZ even comes with a soft case, so you can rest assured that your new pride and joy is well protected on the go. If you're looking for a guitar that rewards speed and precision playing with beautiful notes and a lush, textured, timbre, it doesn't get much better than the awesome Ibanez RG950WFMZ RG Premium electric guitar with tiger eye on flamed maple.
