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.
Hand-wound in UK, Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver acceleratedbass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increasedfocus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation. (bare knuckle pickups), The Ebony fretboard with Prestige fret edge treatment provides tight response and smooth left-hand fingering. (ebony fretboard w prestige fret edge treatment), Besides lightening the weight of the body, this bold horn cut provides full, comfortable access to the higher frets. The taper of these horns greatly improves player comfort at the upper end up the fretboard. These beveled edges are another of the many innovations that have come out of our relationships with Ibanez artists. (scoop cut), The Tight-End R bridge was designed specifically for the RG flat top. A marked improvement over the conventional fixed bridge, the Tight-End R delivers both playability and rock-solid stability. Saddles firmly locked onto the base plate maximize string vibration transmitted to the body. The smooth bridge surface protects the strumming hand no matter how aggressively you play. Simple saddle height and intonation adjustments ensure accurate set-up. (tight-end r bridge), Slim, fast and durable Wizard-7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck (wizard-7 neck),
