Seven Strings and a Long Neck to Handle the Roar!Ibanez's RGD2127Z not only gives you seven-string range -- its extra-long neck ensures the guitar can handle all those earth-shaking sounds without buzzing out. Its V77 and V87 pickups are also designed to handle low-end rumbles with plenty of definition.
Made to Get LowThe seven-string design of the RGD2127Z adds another low string beyond the standard six-string range, enabling fans of heavy riffing to reach the depths of rock and metal. Ibanez has enhanced this model's low-end range with an extra-long 26.5-inch neck scale. The longer neck is better equipped to handle drop tunings, meaning you can tune down to Antarctica before you hear fret buzz.
You can take things even lower with the Edge Zero 7 bridge. Ibanez's own tremolo system comes stock on the RGD2127Z. Push the bar as low as you can for extreme dive bombs or pull up into the recessed cavity for screeching harmonics.
Clean, Responsive Tone From V77 and V87 PickupsLoaded in the RGD2127Z's neck pickup slot is Ibanez's V77. A seven-string version of the Vintage 7, this humbucker delivers bright and clean tones but responds well to distortion. The bridge slot holds a V87, known for high output and rich harmonics, especially with the gain turned up a bit. Both pickups were engineered by Ibanez to handle the heavy sounds of seven-string guitars.
Thick Sounds with a Slim NeckThe long length and deep range of the RGD2127Z's neck doesn't mean that Ibanez has sacrificed speed. The guitar is constructed with a maple and wenge Wizard-7 Prestige Neck -- well known among shredders for its flat contour and playability. This version of the Wizard series brings the speedy neck to seven-string players with its thin profile -- 19 mm thick at the nut and 21mm at the 12th fret. The deep cutaways allow access all the way up the fretboard.

The Edge Zero 7, an advanced generation of Edge knife-edge tremolos, employs design advantages from the high tech ZR Zero Resistance trem such as the Zero Point System, an onboard intonation screw and arm torque adjustment.
The RGD2127Z features V77/V87 custom designed pickups for down tuning. These pickups are specially designed for capturing more low-end by regenerating a wider tonal range. Instead of losing the low-end, they output it with rich, harmonic tone. Also featured is a 26.5-inch extra long scale neck, with factory-set whole step down tuning. (Factory tuning: 1D, 2A, 3F, 4C, 5G, 6D, 7A.)
Edge-Zero TremoloThe Edge-Zero, Ibanez's advanced generation of knife edge tremolos, deploys all of the unique features of the ZR trem. Edge-Zero trems are standard on all RG Prestige, RG3000 and RGA Prestige models.
Just unscrew the built-in intonation adjustment tool from the base and screw it into the bottom of each saddle for quick adjustments. The locking bolt is offset from the center of the saddle, which allows easy access to the bolt without loosening the strings.
