Overview

Looking for new musical expanses to explore? The recognized "First in Seven, Leader in Eight" has thrown down the proverbial gauntlet. After having brought a high-performance 8-string into the range of affordability for every player who heard the siren call of that instrument's musical mysteries, here comes a 9-string RG that promises performance and accessibility no less awesome.

With adark finish on its basswood body, a 28 neck opens up a plethora of downtuning possibilities. Its rosewood fingerboard with classic pearl dot inlays complete the visuals, and the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring.

As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Ultra-9 is yet another achievement for the Ibanez designers in terms of player comfort. Not has Ibanez managed to make the RG9 quite playable, its neck-feel is immediately inspiring.

The proprietary QM-9 humbuckers are designed to thrive in the down tuned netherworld and yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures. Factory tuning from 1st to 9th string is E/B/G/D/A/E/B/F#/C#.

The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength.

Ibanez RG9

By Samuel

Comments about Ibanez RG Series RG9 9-string Electric Guitar:

It is a completely different experience playing 7, 8, and 9 string guitars. I chose Ibanez for my first 9 string guitar, because I like the feel of the neck. I enjoy the low strings because they act like pedal tones on a pipe organ and ring forever. Just strike one and solo over the top of it. I also enjoy laying down a track with the low end first on my Ditto X2 or Spider Jam then soloing over the top. I have big hands, so I can manage to play the 9th string. The strings it comes with are pretty good for the 7 strings, but not so good for the 8th and 9th. I just ordered the Ernie Ball 9 string set and it comes with a 105 for the 9th which will make the C# sound better. I really do enjoy the 28" neck with the extra space between each fret. It is way easier for me to play solos then on a regular 6 string. The pickups aren't bad for stock pickups, but I'll most likely upgrade them to either EMG or Bare Knuckle. Well, I hope this helps you make a decision. I usually don't write reviews at all, but I was sad to see Guitar Center didn't have one yet. Take care and rock on.
