Ibanez has long been a respected name in the world of heavy metal because many of their axes have a look and sound that perfectly suits the genre. Take for example, their RG line. One of the best-selling guitar series of all time, RG guitars have been played by many legendary musicians since the series was launched back in the 1980s, including Steve Vai, Dave Navarro and Gary Holt. With their easy-playing necks, killer looks and powerful sound, every RG model is a testament to what makes Ibanez a leader in the manufacture of electric guitars, and the metal scene in general.
Whether you're after a classic six-string or think you're ready to take on an extended range 8- or 9-string model, you'll find what you're looking for in the RG series. You'll also notice that the prices of these guitars make it possible for anyone to own one. For example, the RG Series RG6002 Electric Guitar is an affordable yet high-performance workhorse that's great for beginners who want to work on their speed and strength. Featuring dual Infinity pickups, double-locking tremolo, a mahogany body and 24 jumbo frets for bigger note bends, any young headbanger will be happy to own the RG6002.
Now for those who play local gigs often and want to spoil themselves with a concert-ready workhorse, take a look at the RG Prestige Series RG655M Electric Guitar. The result of high-tech manufacturing techniques and old-world Japanese craftsmanship, every guitar in the RG Prestige line is based on three principles: Precision, Performance and Playability. The RG655M reflects each of those principles to a tee, from the Super Wizard 5-piece neck to the Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge. For lightning fast solos, tight tone and flawless tuning accuracy, the RG655M Electric Guitar is in a league of its own.
It's one thing to have the talent and the drive to pick up an electric guitar and blow minds, but when that same guitar is also a representation of your unique influences and personality, it makes the playing experience way more enjoyable. The simple truth is that everyone deserves an axe that reflects their tastes, and as you've probably guessed by now, an RG Series guitar is ideal for any loud and proud headbanger.
