Wizard III Maple Neck Enables Lightning-Fast Fretting

The Wizard III maple neck on the RGA42FM is thin, fast and comfortable. Its flat 15.7" radius and jumbo frets make it easy to bend notes and rip through solos at breakneck speed. The smooth jatoba fingerboard enhances playability, while an offset dot inlay adds visual flair. For the modern metal guitarist, the Wizard III neck is the perfect mix of form and function.

Quantum Pickups Provide Thick, Articulate Distortion

The RGA42FM features a Quantum humbucker in the neck and bridge position. These pickups produce rich, full distortion that retains note clarity and definition. Roll back the volume or tone for a crunchier classic rock sound, or crank the gain for an all-out sonic assault. The pickups are also coil-tappable, offering single-coil tones at the flip of a switch.

Fixed Bridge Delivers Solid Intonation and Tuning Stability

Instead of a whammy bar system, the RGA42FM has a fixed bridge. This provides rock-solid tuning stability and intonation for precise pitch. Without the added components of a tremolo, the fixed bridge also allows more vibrational energy to transfer to the body, producing a lively, resonant tone. For many metal guitarists, a fixed bridge is the ideal option.

Premium Components and Innovative Design

From its contoured mahogany body and flamed maple top to its black hardware and offset dot inlays, every detail of the RGA42FM is premium and performance-focused. Its forearm contour creates an ultracomfortable playing surface for shredding at high speeds. Overall, the RGA42FM brings together innovative design and powerful pickups for a truly exceptional metal guitar experience.
