What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups Accelerated bass response, precise high-ends
Nitro Wizard neck Comfortable, fast, and easy-to-play neck
Poplar burl top Beautiful wood grain, produces bright tones
Macassar ebony fretboard High-density wood; smooth playing feel

The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5" scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a "fast" neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.

- Axion Label -
The Axion Label series takes the established elements of modern electric guitar design and push them to new, lesser-explored territory. Similar to how the Bass Workshop series delivers the cutting-edge of bass, Axion Label dives into elements like multi-scale design, ultra-modern pickups from Fishman(R), Bare Knuckle, and DiMarzio, as well as hardware innovations like the Evertune bridge. These elements are just the tip of the iceberg for this ultra-modern series, and only the beginning of its ultimate potential.
