Ibanez RGA42FM Electric Guitar

The Ibanez RGA42FM has serious rock and roll attitude. With a flame maple top and a Wizard II neck, the Ibanez RGA42FM is perfect for rock applications.
If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in Metal guitars, then the RGA is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury, and expression.

The RGA42FM is a hardtail 6-string electric built around a Mahogany body with stunning Flamed Maple top. Its contoured top not only looks sleek--it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player's right forearm rests. Other features include a fast, thin, Wizard III Maple neck and jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets for maximum left hand performance.

This neck and fretboard combination provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RGA42FM's warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups offer an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that never sacrifice high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.

- Mahogany body with Flamed Maple top

"It’s growing on me"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this guitar a few weeks ago and wanted to play it a bit before I reviewed it. When I first got it the frets were very rough and it buzzed like crazy but I am fairly good with fixing up frets so I did my thing and sanded them down and polished them really good and now it’s an absolutely great instrument. From the looks of the reviews I may have just received one that slipped past and I’m sure if I would have asked zZounds would have switched out the guitar for me. Now that it’s all fixed up I have to say that it sounds amazing and you can really dial in some great tone with this rig.I am really enjoying it and plan on getting another Ibanez after I pay this one off.
