Ibanez proudly presents the RGA42EX Standard Electric Guitar. This solidbody electric guitar is built for high-speed, physically demanding rock, metal and blues. Its sleekly sculpted meranti body and maple Wizard III neck offer fast, unrestricted playability for power chords, riffing and shredding. This iconic yet affordable instrument to musicians seeking a guitar that matches their talent and intensity.

Quantum Humbucking Pickups Provide Crushing Tone

The RGA42EX packs a sonic punch with dual Quantum humbucking pickups. These pickups provide accelerated bass response and fast note tracking for high-speed staccato riffing. Their wide frequency range delivers a crushing midrange, articulate high end and tight low end. Five-way switching gives you access to a variety of pickup combinations so you can shape your tone to perfection.

Hardtail Bridge Provides Rock-Solid Stability

The RGA42EX features an F106 hardtail bridge for exceptional tuning stability and sustain. Each string can be individually adjusted for perfect intonation and action. Because there are no moving bridge parts, the hardtail design minimizes tuning issues that can occur with vibrato bridges. The rock-solid bridge anchors the RGA42EX with a tone that's tight, focused and feedback resistant.

Contemporary Esthetics Meet Timeless Playability

With its matte black finish, sculpted body and pickguard-free design, the RGA42EX has a sleek, modern look. But beneath its contemporary esthetics beats the heart of a classic rock guitar. Everything about this ax—from its resonant tonewoods and hot humbuckers to its fast neck and hardtail bridge—is aimed at no-holds-barred playing. The RGA42EX delivers legendary Ibanez performance and reliability at an affordable price from .
