Ibanez has remained the strongest name in metal guitars because of the outstanding playability and peerless performance of Ibanez instruments. From carefully selected materials to pro-level hardware and high-profile electronics, every detail is deeply considered and designed. The Ibanez High Performance series delivers high-end performance and road warrior dependability.
The RGA42HP features a Nyatoh body which creates a truly mesmerizing visual aura and a warm, yet expressive, tone. Its contoured top not only looks sleek-it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player's right forearm rests. A Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood's stability and durability. It provides a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. A Jatoba fretboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering up and down the full length of the fretboard.
The fretboard features luminescent side dot position marks to make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages. DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups, the amazing product of a collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez, provide great clarity and a very smooth response, satisfying the current demands of players in today's progressive metal scene. The Fixed bridge boasts a low profile design, allowing plenty of picking hand freedom while optimizing tuning stability.
