First introduced in 2005, Ibanez RGA guitars quickly took the hard rock and metal world by storm with their solid feel, exceptional tone and lightning-speed playability. Designed with shredders in mind, the RGA line is made up of arch-top variations of guitars from Ibanez's top-selling RG series. These guitars are used by many acclaimed artists, including virtuosos like Steve Vai and John Petrucci of Dream Theater. When you get right down to it, Ibanez RGA guitars are versatile enough to handle a wide range of playing styles.
You never know what RGA you might stumble upon in this catalog, but if you happen to find the RGA 8 STRING GREEN Solid Body Electric Guitar, consider yourself lucky. Boasting a string-through design, fixed bridge and slim Wizard II-8 neck, this affordable guitar has incredible sustain, and the IBZ humbucking pickups evenly reproduce the wide frequencies of all 8 strings.
Another model to keep an eye out for is the RGA7QM 7-String Electric Guitar. Elegantly topped with quilted maple, this arch top beauty allows you to knock out killer leads and power chords with minimal effort. Loaded with an LZ7-N pickup at the neck and an LZ7-B pickup at the bridge, the RGA7QM should not be passed up if you're a headbanger who wants an insanely playable metal machine.
The curved beauty and lightweight body of an Ibanez RGA guitar makes it ideal for live performers who want to knock out impressive riffs while enjoying the freedom of movement on stage. Additionally, their thin, flat necks are well-liked by technical players who want to play intricate scales fast. All of these characteristics make RGA guitars extremely popular with metal heads - which also means they don't last long after they arrive to this section. For this reason, your best bet is to check back often and see what's in store.
