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. Whether you favour a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
Featuring a fast maple Wizard III neck and jatoba fingerboard with a 15.7" radius, the Ibanez RGA42HP solidbody electric guitar is purpose-built for high-speed, low-drag playing.
It all starts with a balanced RG Nyatoh body for plenty of richness and snap and appointed with eye-catching gold hardware. You'll love how this guitar feels as soon as you pick it up. And it sports two hot DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbucking pickups with a coil-tap switch, ideal for metal, rock, and blues.
The Ibanez RG series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks to the effortless playability of its Wizard III neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and fluid lead lines is effortless on this slim-profile neck.
The Ibanez RGA42HPT sports a double locking tremolo bridge, perfect for warbling vibratos and screaming divebombs. The locking nut design keeps your tuning stable during even the most enthusiastic shred-sessions, so you can go nuts without going flat. And, the tremolo bar has a smooth and responsive feel for expressive performances.
