The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in ”normal” guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5” scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a ”fast” neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes. 

Axe Design Lab
Ibanez has been creating innovations which do not only fit the unique demands of players from that period, but also eventually turn into industrial standards, such as 7 string, 8 string and Multi scale guitars. All these started from our attitude to be “Innovative, Cutting-Edge and Pioneer”. Axe Design Lab is the series fully represents this attitude.  

Wizard III 5pc Maple/Walnut neck 
Ibanez's thin, flat and fast Wizard neck is strong and sturdy and offers unlimited playability and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for a wide tonal range.  

Macassar Ebony fretboard 
Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.  

Jumbo frets 
umbo frets contribute to smooth playability, especially for single-note playing. 

Nyatoh body 
Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.
