Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar - Black Flat
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.
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.
Pickup magnet strength plays a crucial role in pickups designed specifically for down-tuning. Maximizing the vibration of heavy strings depends on proper selection of the pickup's magnet. Additionally, care has been taken to ensure that the output at the neck is perfectly balanced with high output at the bridge.
Gibraltar Standard-7 Bridge
The Gibraltar Standard is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to adhere firmly to the guitar body and make good transfer of the string vibrations. It is also incredibly smooth for maximum playing comfort.
