Rating and Reviews: Ibanez RGIR9FME Iron Label

When you need to crank out guttural lows, only a 9-string can do the job. This Iron Label model features a pair of EMG 909 active pickups for thick tones.

Music Style: Metal / Death Metal
Back to Product Information
Overall: This guitar is one of the best extended range guitars I have ever played on. The neck is so smooth and comfortable to your hands. The finish is astonishing and beautiful. The Active pickups are perfect for delivering that low djent crunch, and the loud screaming highs along with the mids that bridge the tones. The bridge is comfortable and is easy to adjust, speaking of adjustments, the guitar comes with 3 Allen wrenches that are each a different size, one is for adjusting the truss rods. Another one is for the action at the bridge and the last one is for adjusting the intonation. It also comes with an unbalanced instrument cable with one end of the cable being a 90 degree angle jack. Hands down one of the best guitars I’ve ever purchased. The only thing that was an inconvenience was that when I purchased a set of Ernie Ball 9 string slinky strings, I measured the strings from the pack and the 8th and 9th strings were too short, the taper started before the nut, so for those of you that are looking for a set of 9 string guitar strings, do not get the Ernie Ball 9 string slinky strings, they will be too short for this specific 9 string guitar. Use bass strings for the top 2 strings, as a matter of fact, the guitar is already strung with bass strings for the top 2 by the factory. And the holes for the ball ends of the top 2 strings on the back are made bigger to accommodate bass strings. I use a 0.105 gauge bass string for the 9th string and a 0.085 gauge bass string for the 8th string. Other than that, this guitar is perfect for metal of all types
