Almost a no brainer for metal guitarists looking to find the price/performance sweet spot. The 2016 models build on the already solid Iron Label reputation for features tailored to rock/metal, many ofwhich wouldn't look out of place at a higher price bracket. You seriously can't go wrong with EMGs, Wizard Neck, Ebony fretboard and a kill switch.
A new standard for metal guitarists in 2016
The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. This Iron Label RG model, the RGIT20FE, features a Nitro Wizard 7pc Maple/Walnut neck with thru-body construction and an Ebony fretboard. These specs help it achieve a tight low-end sound and a quick response, both of which are needed for today’s metal. The EMG 60 neck pickup packs plenty of output with a balance of tones that is classic; thick, boosted mids, big lows, and fat highs. The EMG 81 bridge pickup gives detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Also, a kill switch provides the player easy access to a manually controlled strobe effect. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge optimally transfers string vibration to the body and is a perfect compliment to it’s neck-thru construction. The locking tuners add another player-friendly feature as well, helping to stabilize tuning as well as cutting down string-changing time.
Ibanez Electric Guitars 2016 This year sees the return of the RGA design in both the Iron Label range and Jake Bowen signature guitars, slick looks and mighty sounds aplenty. The new Talman Prestige guitars offer something a little different for Ibanez, with a really classic look and sound, perfect for rockers and blues players. Semi-acoustic players are similarly spoiled with affordable relic finishes and an update to the popular George Benson signature, Japanese crafted & fitted with specially designed pickups.
