Product Description

The Ibanez RG421 electric guitar is a no-nonsense axe built for speed, comfort and power! The RG421's mahogany body combined with the rosewood fingerboard makes for a great warm, punchy tone. Classic pearl dot inlays complete the visuals while the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring. The Wizard III on the RG421 guitar is yet another achievement in player comfort that translates into maximizing player performance.

The proprietary Infinity humbuckers provide a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures. This RG421 answers the wishes of many of the Ibanez fans who've requested more fixed bridge offerings, and this particular bridge is designed to minimize string contact and maximize sustain.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Ibanez products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (47 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing budget guitar!"
Sound: 5-way switch makes it versatile for single coil and humbucking sounds. Pickups seems a bit dark and lack definition, but that's expected at this price point. Feature: The best feature is probably the famous wizard neck and smooth satin mahogany body. Ease of Use: Action can get extremely low with a proper fret level and crown making it easy to glide over the fretboard. Quality: A+ Overall: I initially bought this guitar as a backup, but it quickly became my main axe. Out of the box, it was ready to play with only just a slight amount of fret leveling that needed to be done. The feel of satin wood in my hands feels perfect and the grain on the body is beautiful, but that's just personal preference. It is extremely light; almost too light! :) before purchasing, I knew the pickups needed to be replaced because they lack some clarity and definition, plus I can never keep anything stock. Solid construction; no loose hardware; tuners are excellent and I use 8s! Do yourself a favor and pick this guy up if you want a solid budget guitar or a platform for modification. Check out my Instagram (leokaymusic) for pictures of the modifications I did and video clips!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ibanez RG-421 MOL review"
Overall: the good:weighs 8 pounds and is light as a feather. and the wizard 3 neck was a step up for me. it's as if I got better overnight.the bad:thing had fret buzz from the get go and tweaks on the body bridge didn't fix it. too broke for pro fixing but I'm sure that it'll be fine next week when I get it done. and while I took the free shipping option and got it the next day by chance because fes ed hubs are so close it was just dropped on my porch. it came so fast tracking was behind and $300 may not be a lot to many folks, but not having them ask for a signature in my neighborhood is a no-no. zzounds should offer that as a clickable option.the ugly:the guitar. stock photos show a 1 piece front and 1 piece back implying it's 1 piece. but the fronts akin to a quilted top veneer. the back is at least 3 pieces. the rear and especially side / edge finishes were awful, the side horrific. looks like an indonesian wood ashtray souvenir craftsman just started finishing guitars at the factory.overall:it's light which is nice, the necks playable (speculation here pre buzz fret repair) but it seems like not only a bad finish (fit seems fine, but again aside from fret buzz) but cheesy. again like a souvenir. and I've read that the volume knob gets in the way of strumming and sure enough it does for me too. so, if you want one it's alright for the price. but I'd suggest looking at and feeling one before buying it as some things may or may not be to your liking. know what you're buying and like it and if you do it's an alright guitar...

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

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.
