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 favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.


Coupling Wenge with Bubinga has made the neck strong and stable.
Our luthiers’ insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premium’s hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
DiMarzio® ibz pickups were made by DiMarzio® specially for Ibanez.
The tone is vivid but easy to control to your sonic requirement.
The Tight-End R Bridge was designed specifically for the RG flat top. A marked improvement over the conventional fixed bridge, the Tight-End R delivers both playability and rock-solid stability. Saddles firmly locked onto the base plate maximize string vibration transmitted to the body. The smooth bridge surface protects the strumming hand no matter how aggressively you play. Simple saddle height and intonation adjustments ensure accurate set-up.
