If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in metal guitars, then the RG is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury, and expression.

The Ibanez RG421PB is a 6-string electric built around a Mahogany body with a handsomely figured Poplar Burl top. It features the Wizard III Maple neck--an achievement in player comfort designed to maximize performance. A jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RG421PB's warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups produce an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that offer excellent high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.

"Very Nice to begin with"

I got this for my brithday about 2 years ago. Since then I have done many a thing to this and with this guitar. I replaced the output jack, took out the tone pot to replace it with a killswitch, replaced the 5 way stock blade switch to a 3 way blade switch, switched the bride Pickup for a Dimebag Darrell signature Seymour Duncan and now am replacing the hardware with all black. One thing I did NOT like is that over time the hardware lost its color. That’s why I’m replacing the hardware but other that that I love it.
