Ibanez Sapphire Blue Flat RG Standard 6 String Electric Guitar
- Brand: Ibanez
- SKU: RG421PBSBF
If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in metal guitars, then the RG is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury, and expression. The RG421PB is a 6-string electric built around a Meranti body with a handsomely figured Poplar Burl top. It features the Wizard III Maple neck—an achievement in player comfort designed to maximize performance. A Jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RG421PB’s warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups produce an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that offer excellent high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.
