The Ibanez RG number of guitars continues to be a standard in rock music for the last handful of decades, with thanks to the effortless playability of the company’s Wizard III neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and wild lead lines is effortless about this slim-profile neck. And the RG body style’s aggressive lines strike an imposing look onstage, while being expertly contoured, ensuring an appropriate playing experience. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love the feel and playability of Ibanez’s RG guitars. You are going to too!

The Ibanez RG421 sports a set bridge, which gives the reassurance that comes from rock-solid tuning stability. From standard to lowered tunings, your guitar’s pitch will remain more stable as well as the string tension will feel more consistent. Also, when you change tunings immediately they you will need to go without messing with all the tremolo or loosening locking nuts. Many also attribute greatly increased sustain along with a fatter overall tone to the way hardtail bridges transfer the string’s energy straight away to the RG421’s body.
