Product Description

Expect a power surge! Ibanez warns, about plugging in this Destroyer. Don't dare call it a re-issue, because at Ibanez, the tweaking never stops. The body and neck of both guitars are made of a tight Mahogany for maximum resonance. The bound Rosewood fingerboard is adorned with smart Pearl/ Abalone block inlay and Jumbo frets. The DT420 features the sonic pyrotechnics of Ibanez proprietary Classic Elite humbuckers that deliver a range of tones from clean to crushing beyond anything in its price category. This grand exercise in rock n' roll extroversion features a luscious Transparent Cherry finish with handsome contrasting white body binding.

Strap one on and find out why they call it The Destroyer!

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (55 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Ibanez DT class guitar-unbeatable."
Sound: this guitar has got a great sound, it can be used to play almost any type of thing fairly efficiently. Feature: this guitar is quite simple but at the same time very intense, with two humbucked pick ups you can produce a wide variety or sounds. Though the guitar does not come in my favored color, it has an awesome shape and the fret board is very easy to move around on. To those of you who do not enjoy having a whammy bar this is a good guitar it has a nice hard tail very easy to string. Quality: The quality of this product is very high, obviously not one of the lower Ibanez's. there are no loose parts or anything of the sort, the whole guitar seems stable as if it were all one piece. the finish is very good and would not wear off even in the intensist playing very light durably body, though it may not keep a note for the longest amount of time it is very easy to wield. Value: This guitar is well worth the price, probably more than that, but Ibanez always has a low price for a better guitar. Manufacturer Support: I have not contacted the company, because there has not been one flaw with this guitar. The Wow Factor: this has got a great shape tha caught my eye from the beginning, at first you may think it was designed for looks not ability but that thought is quickly thrown out the moment you play it. Though some of the earlier models of the DT class only come in apple red, which in my opinion is not attractive, it makes up for it with everything else. Overall: I will probably keep this guitar for a very very long time. Though it could be slightly modified with more pickups or the likes, it is quite sufficient as is.
Style of Music: grunge, rock, various punk

"Oh, c'mon... you KNOW you want it! (ATTENTION METALHEADS)"
Sound: Through the rig I use, a Marshall VS100R and 4x12 cabinet, this baby sounds a whole lot like a a Vintage Les Paul... especially at higher gain levels. And that's a good thing... a REAL good thing!! Feature: The only real pain in the neck I found was that there was not enough adjustment in the bridge to properly intonate the guitar. The saddle screw bores are offset, and I had to flip one around backwards for it to intonate properly. It's currently held in place by string tension and nothing more. Quality: In my particular example, except for the above noted saddle problem, absolutely perfect. Value: At the very least, comparable quality at a comparable price. Manufacturer Support: I've been an Ibanez guy for many years now and I always find the company reps to be helpful and friendly. The Wow Factor: If you've ever lusted after one of the guitars from the '80s Def Leppard videos, you already know why. Overall: The one I own is identical in every way to this product, except I bought mine brand new in 1996, and its model is DTH 400. I know, it wasn't in the catalogue. As far as anyone I know is concerned Ibanez didn't make any Destoyers in 1996. I have no explanation. I am currently shopping for a red one as its bookend. Thank goodness Ibanez started making the cases for these again!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
