With the growing popularity of the Iron Label series, Ibanez continues to tap the seismic underworld for inspiration. Working their famous RGD body shape from the “chassis” up, the RGDIX6PB is a stunning creation of unique beauty that adds a new dimension to the brand’s no-frills “made-for-metal” lineup.
Ibanez is pleased to add another RGD layered body model in new finish. An exotic Poplar Burl top sits above the Ash & Mahogany body, capturing the highly sought-after “layered body” look that is popular with today’s boutique guitar enthusiasts. While the Ash offers great sustain and pronounced midrange, the Mahogany produces a warm, soft, and fat bass sound that sits under the Ash body.
Also the model features a beautifully bound Ebony fretboard that provides quick response and percussive overtones. Additionally the guitar mounts the DiMarzio® Fusion Edge pickups that were the result of a direct collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez. The pickups provide great clarity and a very smooth response, satisfying the demands of players in today’s progressive metal scene.
The 26.5” scale length of the RGD line enables a rich, and thick tone when down-tuning but still remains extremely playable for highly technical riffs and runs. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the neck’s highest notes. With the combination of the Gibraltar Standard II bridge and Gotoh® MG-T locking tuners, the RGD Iron Label is a perfect choice for metal players looking for a more modern guitar that features the ultimate in both sound and playability.
