A primo heavy metal 7-string machine from the pioneer of heavy rock guitars.

The Ibanez RGD2127Z Prestige 7-string electric guitar is made in Japan with Prestige craftsmanship by Japan's finest luthiers. It's built for heavy rocking and for outputting clear sound down to the lowest note without losing playability. The Ibanez guitar's extra-long, lightning-fast, 26-1/2" Prestige Wizard HP neck is ultra-smooth, thin, and strong, and is backed with KTS Titanium reinforcement-it's the best in shred. This sleek 7-string metal monster is tuned down low and built to reach the highest realms of metal fury.

The Ibanez Prestige RGD2127Z guitar features V77/V87 custom designed pickups for down tuning. These pickups are specially designed for capturing more low-end by regenerating a wider tonal range. Instead of losing the low-end, they output it with rich, harmonic tone. A lot of hard rockers hold their guitars low, and the sharp-shaped Ibanez RGD guitar body achieves good balance and extra-deep scoop cuts on lower horn for easier access to high frets for low-slingers. The Edge Zero 7, the next generation of Edge knife-edge tremolos, employs design advantages from the high tech ZR Zero Resistance trem such as the Zero Point System, an onboard intonation screw and arm torque adjustment.

V77/V87 pickups
The Ibanez RGD2127Z Prestige electric guitar comes equipped with custom designed pickups for down tuning. These pickups are specially designed for capturing more low-end by regenerating a wider tonal range. Instead of losing the low-end, they output it with rich, harmonic tone. The V87 bridge humbucker uses alnico magnets to produce a rich harmonic tone with clarity in the low end. The V77 neck pickup's ceramic magnets produce a smooth and dynamic tone with warm midrange.

Includes hardshell case.

  • Soon to be a GREAT new addition to my collection

    As reviewed by Ryan Weeks on 8/27/2010

    BElieve me if i could id give this more then 5 stars, unfortunately i cannot. There are so many things about this guitar that are perfect whether its the pick ups which are for the lower tunings that this beast handles, the deep cut in the body to allow for the upper fret shredding in soloes, or maybe its just the thin neck, what ever it is i llove it and it is welcome in my growing collection of guitars including the Ibanez RG3520ZE.

  • Worth the money

    As reviewed by John on 6/29/2011

    Ok, I am a little bit biased as I am a huge fan of Ibanez. I have owned many Jems and Universe guitars. I have owned many Prestige guitars as well as the RGA8 and some other odds and ends. Ibanez just has a neck that feels better to me than any other guitar. Having said that, I would like to point out that this RGD2127z feels very different from most Ibanez guitars. The neck in particular. When I received the guitar, it had 10 gauge strings on it and was tuned down a step. I have played all sorts of gauges of strings but have recently gone back to playing 9 gauge strings and tuning the top 6 strings standard and then dropping the 7th string to A (7th string as a 54 gauge). Before I changed the strings, I gave it a whirl and the action was too high. I tried changing to my preferred tuning and adjusting the string tension on the back, but it was not what I wanted. So I removed the 10's and put on the 9's and then adjusted the string tension so that the bridge was level. Then I lowered the string height little by little until it was super low action but with no fret buzz even during heavier picking. It plays and sounds great. The longer scale neck does make for a slightly larger reach, but I was used to that from my 8 string Ibanez. But even besides the longer scale neck, the neck is different some how. Perhaps a little beefier than the usual super thin neck that I am used to. But still not as thick as most guitars. I love this guitar. It is built really well. No joke. The toggle switch is super beefy and seems like it was really designed well. Not a cheap little toggle that would break or lose contact after a month. The pickups. I always plan on replacing the stock pickups because I never like them. Not the case on this guitar. For the first time ever, I love the stock pickups. And I am super picky. I was planning on putting some Bare Knuckle cold sweats in this guitar right away, but I don't think it needs it. Nothing is lacking with these pickups. Really good tone and clarity and range. They even throw in a really cool Ibanez Prestige multi-tool. It looks like a Swiss Army knife but has all of the usual tools in it for guitars. Nice little extra. And the case is like a Jem case instead of the usual plastic kind. This thing is all class. Not one single complaint. Just take the time to set it up like you want it, and never worry about it again. Hope that helps.

  • Pricey, but well worth it.

    As reviewed by Zack Trujillo on 1/7/2013

    I have to start off by saying that this is probably the best guitar I have played. This is my first quality instrument. I didn't know about paying so much for a guitar, especially since I don't perform. With that being said, let's talk about features. One of the things I love about this guitar is its unbelievable cutaway for the higher frets. Not only that, but the neck is a dream to play on. I didn't know how I would adjust to a 7 string, but the thin, flat neck really makes it a joy to play. The neck has to be the smoothest neck I have played on. The bridge holds tune extremely well. Unfortunately, it has poor ability for flutters. The pickups are suprisingly good. I had the same stock Ibanez pickups in one of their cheaper 6 string models and did not like them. On this guitar, however, they just sound better. The notes are clear and they clean up very well when the volume knob is rolled back. They were even smart with the positioning of the pickup selector switch. The input jack is angled upward so the cable doesn't accidentally get pulled out when you're jamming. I can't really notice the longer scale while I am playing, but I can tell it keeps the tension in the lower strings very well, even with my 7th string tuned to a low A. As far as sound goes, this thing is a beast. It growls with heavy riffage and I love using the neck pickups for leads. It sound really good on a clean setting, especially when the pickups swith is in the middle position. The quality is unreal. The frets are dressed to perfection. There are no flaws that I could find with this instrument. Even the Ibanez logo on the headstock is in abalone. This instrument is a must have for any musician. Heck, I'm not even a professional musician. I bought it because I'm starting to write my own songs for fun. If you're in the market for a 7 string and have the cash, buy this guitar.
