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 Ibanez RG450M features the classic double-cutaway RG design in a basswood body with a fast and playable Wizard III 3-piece maple neck with a 2-octave 24-fret maple fretboard with black dot inlays. It also has an Ibanez Infinity single-coil pickup sandwiched between two Infinity humbucking pickups at the bridge and neck for a broad range of tonal options via the 5-way pickup selector. Black hardware, including a low-profile Edge-Zero II Tremolo system with stud-lock function, gives this guitar extra sizzle. An optional Ibanez M100C case is recommended.
