The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. The RG450DX features a double-cutaway basswood body and thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy Wizard III 3-piece maple neck that offers unlimited playability for demanding players. A 2-octave, 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard offers wide tonal range and the Sharktooth inlay adds a touch of awesome. The Infinity neck pickup provides dynamic sound for chording and rhythm playing, and the bridge pickup provides brightness with warm sound and strong harmonics. The RG450DX has a low-profile Edge-Zero II Tremolo with stud-lock function designed for comfort and tuning stability. The electronics feature an Infinity single-coil pickup sandwiched between two Infinity humbuckers for a killer range of tonal options controlled by its 5-way pickup selector. To finish it off, Cosmo Black hardware keeps the guitar looking dangerous. An optional Ibanez M100C case is recommended for this guitar.
