Product Description

Unleash the full force of an Ibanez RG guitar with the RG450DX. This shred-worthy axe offers the blazing rock tone of an Ibanez with a super-fast Wizard III neck and expressive Edge-Zero II tremolo system to put it to use. Though most commonly associated with metal and other hard rock genres, the versatile humbucker-single-humbucker pickup configuration primes this guitar for everything from high-octane shredding and dive-bombs to subtle rock and even jazz rhythm parts. All coming in at a fantastic price, the RG450DX is a great choice for budding and veteran rockers alike.

Super-Fast Neck, Super-Comfortable Body

Countless guitarists continue to embrace Ibanez RG-style guitars for their inviting feel and effortless playability. Like other RG guitars, the RG450DX just begs to be picked up and played for hours on end with its sleek, dual-cutaway body and ergonomic back contour. The three-piece Wizard III neck features a wide, flat profile with gradually increasing width and thickness. Shred at the highest reaches of the rosewood fretboard with precision and finesse or dig into chunky chords near the nut -- the Wizard III neck makes any style of play a breeze.

Three Versatile Pickups

Explore a wide range of tones with the three pickup configuration of the RG350DX. Though most commonly associated with sizzling hard rock tones of Ibanez's golden era, the three pickup set of the RG350DX also provides a wide range of styles to explore. With an INF3 humbucker at the neck, INFS3 single-coil in the middle, INF4 humbucker at the bridge, and a five-way pickup selector to switch between them, the RG350DX features no lack of tonal versatility. Through both clean and distorted channels or any number of stompboxes, this axe shines with enough character to cut through any mix.

Edge-Zero II Tremolo Bridge

For added expressiveness and versatility, this axe comes loaded with an Edge-Zero II tremolo system. While many "Floyd"-style trems can lead to unstable tuning, the RG350DX includes a set of locking tuning studs at the nut as well as fine-tuners on the bridge to ensure that your tuning stays tight and true through any gig or recording session. Whether you're adding just a slight variation to the end of your riff or exploding in an all-out dive-bomb of '80s metal heroics, the Edge-Zero II is a tremolo you can trust to get the job done with stability and accuracy.

Features:

- Ultra-fast three-piece Wizard III neck
- Scorching INF Infinity Series pickups with an INF3 at the neck, INFS3 in the middle and INF4 at the bridge with five-way pickup selector
- Bound rosewood fingerboard
- Sleek black hardware and jagged inlays
- 24 jumbo frets for enhanced and easy bending
- Edge-Zero II tremolo system with locking nut studs for tuning stability

For guitarists looking for a pro-level rock machine at a not-so-pro-level price, the RG350DX is a stellar choice. From the versatile pickup set to the innovative tremolo system and neck profile, this axe sports no lack of exhilarating features to help you storm any stage or studio.

Product Description

Designed for both speed and strength, the Ibanez RG450DX is an excellent addition to the iconic RG line of guitars by Ibanez. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury and expression.The rich black finish contrasted with white pickguard makes for a classic visual statement on this RG's basswood body, and the sharktooth inlays in the bound rosewood fretboard add a touch of throwback vibe.

As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard III is yet another achievement in player comfort -- comfort that translates into maximizing player performance. The proprietary Infinity humbucking pickups yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures. But few things can better animate a guitar performance than the Ibanez Edge Zero II tremolo system. Responsive, as well as reliable, this trem is the envy of the industry.

Wizard III Maple Neck

Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.

Infinity Pickups

The Infinity neck pickup provides dynamic sound for chording and rhythm playing, and the bridge pickup provides brightness with warm sound and strong harmonics.

Edge-Zero II Tremolo

Lower profile designed tremolo for playing comfort, and stud lock function for stable tuning.
