Product Description

The RG9 is an incredible instrument and will make a formidable addition to any arsenal! Taking the capabilities of an eight string one step further, this Ibanez 9-string promises performance and accessibility like no other. A 28-inch neck opens up a plethora of down tuning possibilities. The RG9 guitar has a Rosewood fingerboard with classic pearl dot inlays which complete the visuals, while the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring.

As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Ultra-9 is yet another achievement for the Ibanez designers in terms of player comfort. Not only has Ibanez managed to make the RG9 quite playable, its neck-feel is immediately inspiring. The proprietary QM-9 humbuckers are designed to thrive in the down tuned netherworld and yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures.

ONE AWESOME GUITAR!

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I don't usually write reviews, but this is one awesome guitar! It shipped earlier than I had expected, and I was surprised to find a tag hanging from one of the machine heads reading that the electronics had been inspected and it had been setup at the factory. The action is super low and it plays better than one of my vintage guitars (estimated between $20,000 and $40,000). I've played for 30 years and in my opinion, IBANEZ outdone themselves on this one. Surprisingly, the neck is extremely playable and shreddable and I found bar chords easy, even up higher down the fretboard where the neck is wider. I was surprised to find the neck was so thin and had been sanded so smoothly; it has a silky feel. The bubinga wood added to the back of the neck for reinforcement is cool and an unusual feature to the styling of the neck. It has an awesome sound as well, in conjunction with its cool black paint and mirror finish. This guitar is all-around impressive! I bought about 15 guitars in about two year's time but the IBANEZ RG9BK blows all of my other guitars away! Nothing cooler than having the ability to play in the bass clef and the treble clef at the same time! AWESOME! Thank you IBANEZ and AMERICAN MUSICAL SUPPLY for getting it in stock and shipping it so quickly!
