If Ibanez holds the most iconic name in metal, then the RG is certainly the guitar that built this reputation. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury and expression. Dressed in a refined Light Violin Sunburst, the RG421 sports a rosewood fingerboard for warm, yet well-defined tonality.

As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard III is yet another achievement in player comfort, comfort that translates into maximizing player performance. Proprietary Infinity pickups round out this metal mammoth with an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures, capable of crushing anyone in earshot.

Wizard III Maple neck
Ibanez's thin, flat, and fast, yet strong and sturdy, Wizard neck offers unlimited playability for demanding players, and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for wide tonal range.

Quantum pickups
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.

Comments about Ibanez RG421 RG Series Electric Guitar:

I ordered this guitar to be delivered to my local Guitar Center. It arrived triple boxed in 4 days. Fit and finnish were decent. The sunburst is very nice with the dark nickel hardware. This particular guitar has a couple of small rogue stain spots on the lighter part of the sunburst, but they aren't overly distracting. The unfinnished neck was a tad grainy, easily solved with a couple passes of a Scothbrite pad. I prefer the bare wood over painted or gloss coated. The fretboard was well done, no sharp edges, no rough frets, no dead spots. Hardware all seems solid. The toggle is crisp, the knobs are smooth. Pups are stable. It was tuned decently outta the box with acceptable action. I will agree with the poster on the the "blackberry" version of this guitar. The nut looks cheap, but it is well placed and solid. Overall good value. Great beginner guitar vs the $200 dollar guitars. Acceptable secondary guitar for more advanced players.
