Ibanez RG9QM Electric Guitar, 9-String

Ibanez, the recognized "First in Seven, Leader in Eight," is now the "Master of Nine." After bringing a high performance 8-string within reach for every player -- Ibanez now unleashes a 9-string RG that promises performance and accessibility that's even more impressive.

The RG9's Basswood body sports a dramatic Quilted Maple top, and 28" scale neck that opens up endless down tuning possibilities. Its Rosewood fingerboard and classic pearl dot inlays complete the look, while jumbo frets grant license for all the string bending you can bring. As originators of the thin, fast neck, the Ultra-9 marks yet another achievement for Ibanez in establishing a new benchmark in extended-range playing ease. As a result, the RG9's neck isn't just playable: it's inspiring. Proprietary QM-9 humbuckers are designed to thrive in the down tuned netherworld and deliver a full range of thick, distorted, tone textures.

Factory tuning from 1st to 9th string is E/B/G/D/A/E/B/F#/C#.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "9 String Satisfaction"
Overall: This is the mid level offering that Ibanez offers in the 9 String market and it is wonderful. The sound of the guitar is straight forward and warm. The pickups are evenly matched to the wood choices and the 5 way selector gives you plenty of tone options. The extended range of this guitar makes writing and playing long flowing scales and runs effortless. After a month of playing out in public I have become so comfortable playing that I may give up six string guitars. Probably not but this instrument has made me a believer in extended range baritone guitars. Tonaly solid, beautifully made, and lightweight this is the best guitar for introducing yourself or another to extended range guitars.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Rg9qm is amazingQ"
Overall: So after having an rg8 for a few years, I decided to go to the next step and buy an rg9. One thing for sure is that it is a million times better quality than the rg8. It may take some time adjusting your amp settings to accommodate, as you are in fact trying to find a tone that is both suitable for a 5 string bass essentially and a guitar. But, once you figure it out, you sound earth shattering. Amazing for Meshuggah-esque riffs.
Style of Music: Metal, Hardcore, Djent (oooh i said the "d" word), punk
