With the growing popularity of the Iron Label series, Ibanez continues to tap into the molten metal underworld for inspiration. Re-working its famous RG body shape from the chassis on up, the RGIB21 has been designed to add some dark, dramatic flair to the brand's no-frills "Made-for-Metal" lineup. The striking Baritone 6-string RGIB21 brings an air of mystery to the Iron Label line.

The RGIB21 features a 28" scale which provides full, rich tone and solid intonation. The combination of the Jatoba fingerboard and Nitro Baritone neck provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low end with quick response. Luminescent side dot inlays will light your way on the darkest stages. Electronics include the EMG 60 pickup for a classic thick, buttery tone, and the searing high end of an EMG 81 provides endless sustain and superior articulation. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge meshes with the guitar's body to provide the optimal transfer of each string's vibration. Gotoh locking tuners provide amazing tuning accuracy and allow for quick, efficient string changing. Factory tuning is B, F#, D, A, E, B with string gauges .14 to .68.

After many years of down tuning standard scale guitars and using 25.5 scale 7 strings I decided to try a legit baritone. This guitar is absolutely nuts,. Came with a perfect setup and intonation, no defects,. And yes it djents hard af. I honestly got nothing bad to say about it
In a high gain setting it's chunkier than Skippy peanut butter, clean is pretty decent but I think the literal bassyness is overpowering for chords.
Love the luminlays, super bright.
