Shred-Friendly Features -- With a Soft Side

Unleash the full force of an Ibanez RG guitar with the RG450DXB. This shred-worthy axe offers the blazing rock tone of an Ibanez with a super-fast Wizard III neck and expressive STD-DL 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 RG450DXB 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 RG450DXB 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 RG350DXB. Though most commonly associated with sizzling hard rock tones of Ibanez's golden era, the three pickup set of the RG350DXB also provides a wide range of styles to explore.

Features:

- Ultra-fast three-piece Wizard III neck
- Scorching Quantum pickups with five-way pickup selector
- Bound rosewood fingerboard
- Sleek black hardware and jagged inlays
- 24 jumbo frets for enhanced and easy bending
- STD-DL 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 RG350DXB 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.

Ibanez RG450DXB Electric Guitar

Looking for a metal machine? The Ibanez RG450DXB guitar screams speed and outright tone. The rich white finish 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 STD-DL tremolo system.

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.

Quantum Pickups

The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great axe, veritable metal machine"
Sound: Good quality, better than I expected. Ibanez has been making RGs for many year's and they know what they're doing. You can hear this actual guitar stock on soundcloud, I made this recording with it on Jan 8th, 2016: https://soundcloud.com/shwan-dereese/1-8-16-metal-ib Feature: The wizard neck is great, it happens to be one piece quartersawn. Ibanez originally got away from one piece because they would warp, but they weren't quartersawn. Then Ibanez discovered that they could make a durable one piece wizard if they used quartersawn maple for strength (one piece refers to the length below the headstock, it's actually a two-piece.) #1 least useful is the third trem spring, it came out when I set it up, don't need it. #2 is the middle pup, definitely going to be replaced some day, as it's weak and not a good tone. I think it's Alnico V, and I usually prefer Alnico V pups, but this one sounds like a lemon. nuff said. Ease of Use: It's easy to get great metal sounds with a high gain amp or distortion box and amp. It's close to pitiful for clean and classic rock IMO, but all you have to do is put in a more versatile set of pups. I think most people expect that when buying this model. I didn't like the quantums at first, but they are growing on me, because I intended this for metal, and they are really good for metal. Quality: It's well made and looks great. I've never been a fan of white axes, but I really like the looks of this one. I'm getting some cheap high output replacement pups, with black and white coil covers to match the guitar, and think they'll be fine. I have a Duncan for the neck, and will compare the performance of the cheap high output bridge pup i'm getting with the Quantum. If el cheapo sounds crappo, i'll just put the quantum back in. Value: I firmly believe this guitar is a better value than practically all guitars in it's price range, probably just a few exceptions out there. I would go so far as to say this is one one of the best values dollar for dollar in a new metal axe... If you want a great metal axe on a budget get this, and build on it with pups etc. if you need to. But out of the box, and post setup, you'll be shredding away... it's a fun axe too! Manufacturer Support: I did email them a few days ago about their pickup wiring, and they haven't responded. I also scoured their website and even authorized dealers, my guess is they aren' t in busines to provide support for their cheaper line products. I don't blame them, the guitar is a good value. The Wow Factor: It looks great, sounds killer, feels good. It's fast and gets the job done. Overall: I got this axe because I had played a friend's RG some years ago and always wanted one. This has Quantum pickups, and the other's I had played previously had INF, which I liked. Quantum pickups are surprising in that they are not high output, but that is the very reason they don't "mush out" at high gain. I'm going to try other pups, but for metal only, these are indeed good pups, with good articulation. The standard DL trem is pretty good, doesn't seem to have the range of other RG trem bridges, but is solid and stays in tune. The setup took a long time, toook me about 8 hours, then after sitting overnight, I readjusted it. Took so long because i set it up for drop C and had to redo the intonation, and changed the strings. Once done I have been very satisfied with the the results. This axe is worth the money. It's a metal axe. If you want to do classic rock and other stuff, you must change the pups because I don't think Quantums sound good for classic rock or clean. So get it, just use the manual for set up instructions, take your time so you don't screw it up, or have it set up at your local shop. Action is great, very fast, you'll be happy with it.
Style of Music: Classic rock, rock, metal, progressive, blues, a little jazz, love it all. I play just about any kind of guitar music.
