Eight Strings of All-Metal Tone!

Ibanez's RGIX28FEQM Iron Label is an axe made for the guitarist who wants a heavy tone and lightning-fast playability. The lightweight maple-topped basswood body is a comfortable fit, providing a nice sustain for your lingering leads and subterranean low-end holds. Eight strings will bring you to lower depths, and the 27" scale Nitro Wizard 8 neck will show you just how smooth and fast a neck can be. Capturing and projecting your metal tone are a pair of EMG 808 active humbuckers that encapsulate the full spectrum of your playing while keeping your tone clearly defined and void of mud. Toggle the kill switch just below your sleek gold Gibraltar Standard bridge to deliver an attention-stealing strobe effect.

The Fastest Neck in Shred

The greatest asset on this bad boy its speed-of-light Nitro Wizard 8 neck. Stretching to 27" in length, this prolific appendage houses two octaves of 24 jumbo frets atop a bound ebony fingerboard. You'll really push your shredding limits when you feel the comfort and ultimate playability that this tool offers. The five-piece composite of maple and walnut sustains your notes and chords honorably and transfers your playing in smooth uninterrupted fashion. See why Ibanez's Nitro Wizard neck is the envy of the industry by exploring just how fast you can shred.

Thick EMG 808 Distortion

Eight strings can be a lot to handle. Widening your tonal spectrum opens many doors, but you want to be sure that, regardless of your technical level as a guitarist, your tone has solid definition. The RGIX28FEQM's pair of active EMG 808 humbuckers will not only break up your tone into a nice, thick, and consistent distortion, but your lower notes will be free of mud and contain as much definition as your mid and higher notes.

Durable and Eye Catching Hardware

From your tuners at the top, to your tone and volume knobs and bridge at the bottom, the RGIX28FEQM's golden hardware shimmers and shines. Anchoring your game down is the secure and durable Gibraltar Standard II-8 bridge -- holding your strings in longer sustain and keeping tight tabs on your intonation. Below your bridge is a kill switch to tightly and quickly deaden your playing in a mesmerizing strobe effect. Treading the edges of your maple topped basswood body is an eye-catching abalone binding.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fantastic Guitar!"
Sound: This guitar sounds amazing. People seem to be against these pickups, but I think they sound incredible. They are so clear and articulate. You can hear every note with clarity on the low strings, and it brings out a nice growl. Playing leads is great, because the sustain is amazing, and the tone is balanced, so no matter where you're playing, there's no harshness and it's all in focus. Clean, they shimmer, especially in the middle position. Though it's a metal guitar, it's so easy to get any kind of tone out of this. Aggressive or lighter playing, the tone shines through with any playing style. It's fantastic. Feature: The bridge is one of the most impressive things about this guitar. It's got a small curve on the top, which matches the radius of the fretboard, making it that much easier to set up. I think that's genius. It's also very solid, and holds notes perfectly. The saddles have a lot of room to move for intonation, which is great, especially on the lower strings. The killswitch is an added, fun bonus. Ease of Use: The neck on this guitar is wonderful. It's very sturdy and very comfortable. The fret edges are nice and smooth, and the nitro finish on the neck makes playing fast very easy. The fretboard is nice and smooth, making playability that much easier and comfortable. The bridge is also very comfortable to play on, along with bringing sustain to the notes. It stays in tune nicely on every string. Quality: The overall quality is great. It's a solidly built guitar. For guitars in this price range, if you're nit-picky, there's sometimes little things here or there with the finish (especially the polyurethane being uniform all the way around pickups) and with this guitar, as well as other Iron Labels I've seen, it's very minimalistic. I was very very impressed with the setup out of the box from the factory. Perfectly matched to the radius, the action was perfect, and even with the stock strings, it was phenomenal to play. Value: The value is great. It exceeds guitars in this price range for sure. Manufacturer Support: Ibanez is pretty easy to get a hold of, and I had a couple of questions when ordering this guitar, and they were very helpful about it all. The Wow Factor: The overall guitar as a whole, especially with the features is the wow factor. The finish is magnificent, and everything about this guitar is great. Overall: The Ibanez RGIX28FEQM is a phenomenally looking, playing, and sounding guitar. It exceeds guitars in this price range. The finish is phenomenal in person. The shade of red with the quilted maple really shines in the light. The abalone and gold hardware that, to some seems gaudy, works perfectly with the finish, and makes the guitar look very elegant.
Style of Music: Metal, Hard-Rock, Alternative Metal, Rock, with the occasional '90's popular music.
