From high-speed riffing to mind-blowing string bending, the quality pickups and sturdiness of the guitar’s build ensure you can play exactly what you want, however aggressively you want.

A flat, fast and fierce neck

The neck of the Ibanez RG421PB is a remarkable feature, both visually and practically. The natural colour of the pale maple wood against the red of the back of the guitar adds to the grungy, yet attractive, appearance. It also brings dazzling tonal qualities that work hand in hand with the pickups. Not only does it enhance your sound, it is comfortable to hold, meaning you can play seamlessly without any hindrance. It is flat and fast, allowing you to slide across the fretboard as quickly as you like, whilst its thin design gives your fingers plenty of space to fret skilfully. Though it is slim, it is incredibly strong and sturdy, so you don’t need to worry about durability. Let your skills take centre stage, the Wizard III neck will aid your playing, ensuring every note sounds articulate. The shape of the body is a welcome accompaniment to the neck, as it ensures easy access to the fretboard, particularly the higher frets: just another feature which maximises the display of your skills.

Enrich your tone with the jatoba fretboard

Deliver a memorable set at your next gig, and for many gigs to come; the fretboard has been designed with your show-stopping playing techniques in mind. Made from Jatoba, a strong and robust wood, the fretboard allows you to play with speed and attack. You never need to hold back when showing off on those solos, especially when there is such a wide tonal range to play with. The two-octave 24-fret fretboard gives you plenty of scope and, combined with the comfort of the Wizard III neck, you will have plenty of freedom to reach any notes you want. Better still, not only does its shape make it wonderfully comfortable to play, the jatoba wood provides a crunchy bass and a gleaming high end, enough to make every note ring out clearly – not one will be lost.

Astounding pickups, brilliant sound

Providing an electrifying tone, the neck and bridge Quantum pickups will ensure you are heard from every corner of the room. They provide an astonishing bass response which works perfectly for fast tracking of speedy riffing. And along with this comes sparkling articulation. Their ceramic design provides sharp tonal clarity and takes your music to a level which packs a punch. Never let your music sound dull again, show off your skills with newfound clarity. You can play with even more confidence, knowing the 5-way selector switch gives you the freedom to toggle between the neck and bridge pickups, allowing you to tailor your tone to your preferences.
