Featuring a fast maple Wizard III neck and jatoba fingerboard with a 15.7" radius, the Ibanez RGA42FM solidbody electric guitar is purpose-built for high-speed, low-drag playing. It all starts with a perfectly balanced RG mahogany body topped with gorgeous figured maple. You'll love how this guitar feels as soon as you pick it up. And it sports two hot Quantum humbucking pickups, ideal for rock, blues, and metal. You want a guitar that won't hold you back. Music Experience has your axe: the Ibanez RGA42FM.
The Ibanez RG series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks to the effortless playability of its Wizard III neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and fluid lead lines is effortless on this slim-profile neck. The guitarists here at Music Experience love the feel and playability of Ibanez's RG guitars. You will too!
The Ibanez RGA42FM sports a fixed bridge, which means no tuning hassles due to a floating vibrato. From standard to lowered tunings your guitar's tuning will be more stable and the string tension will feel looser. When you change tunings at a gig you'll be ready to rock without messing with the bridge or locking nuts.
With two Quantum humbucking pickups and 5-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like on the RGA42FM. With its aggressive visuals and high output, it will forever be known as a rock guitar, however, the RGA42FM's fast playability and tonal variety make it a great instrument for almost any style.
Nothing breathes inspiration into your playing like the feel of a precision made instrument, capable of interpreting your every move with power and accuracy. Enter the Ibanez RGA— a solid body specifically built to handle the heaviest, most physically demanding music you can conjure up. The RGA's unique, sleekly sculpted top offers unrestricted playability for full-throttle power chording or heavy riffing without fear of digging into the body.
Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.
