||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.
||Designed for great looks and engineered to avoid the risk of coming off while you're playing. The non-slip functionality gives this collet knob accurate axis rotation and control for any player. (collet knob), 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), RGD Prestige features V77/V87 custom designed pickups for down tuning. These pickups are specially designed for capturing more low-end by regenerating a wider tonal range. Instead of losing the low-end, they output it with rich, harmonic tone.
