Product Description

The RGA42FM is a hardtail 6-string electric built around a Mahogany body with stunning Flamed Maple top. Its contoured top not only looks sleek—it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player’s right forearm rests. Other features include a fast, thin, Wizard III Maple neck and jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets for maximum left hand performance.

This neck and fretboard combination provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RGA42FM’s warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups offer an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that never sacrifice high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.

If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in Metal guitars, then the RGA is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic screams speed, fury, and expression.

Ibanez RGA42FM Electric Guitar Features

  • Mahogany body with Flamed Maple top

What is your opinion of this product?
First thing i noticed was the fretboard was a nasty looking brown ive never seen on a guitar before. It looked nothing at all like the pictures. The pick ups were both loose and flopping around. And they dont line up with the strings at all. Some fret buzz. I know its only a $400 guitar but being an ibanez and reading the mostly awesome reviews i was dissatisfied. Ill do a fretlevel and change out the pickups hot rod it a lil bit and it should be a decent guitar. I was however very satisfied with AMS , dilevery, costomer service, details were spot on. No surprises.

Great playing guitar for the money. I’ve always been a fan of Inanez guitars
What is your opinion of this product?
Great guitar. Sounded great right out of the box. Stock pickups are high output gems.. great stock pickups. I had planned to swap out the Bridge pickup to a DiMarzio Tone Zone ( still may. Personal preference) but I’m liking the stock Quantum’s. Overall extremely happy! Would recommend this to anyone.

Ibanez
It's made very well.
Seems study and built nice.
Your general opinion of this product.
Best in it's class for the money.
Very chunky. Neck was not bad for a guitar in it's class. The EQ switch was an added bonus. It's super light and thin and that was awesome. The bridge looks like it will last forever.
All of the above. Pickups were awesome.
Great.
Setup was great. Very low action.

A sweet affordable axe!
Well made for the most part...but the battery compartment was not drilled right....the wood was chipped and the screw doesn't hold well
Its built to withstand alot of punishment..great metal guitar.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, I'm impressed. It's a powerhouse.
Its really well-balanced. The neck is a bit beefier than my Destroyer..took a bit getting used to but I definitely like it
It kicks! Pups are very hot..big step up from passives
The paint job is awesome..very sharp and nice curves...
Needed a bit of tweaking..had to lower the action and set up the intonation, but once its dialed in..watch out!

Love it!
The '42 appears to be a well made guitar, however the marred paint job shows a lack of attention to detail. Which effects the quality of the product. Ya think the guy who put his inspection tag on it would have done something about it.
Had it for little less than a month, and no problems so far.
Your general opinion of this product.
The RGA42FM is great for Rock and Metal!! It won't disappoint you. The EQ switch is a very nice addition and relevant to the way the guitar sounds. Very easy guitar to figure out and proves that less is more.
Neck is fast. The controls don't seem to get in the way during quick play.
This part I may have trouble with the correct verbage. The '42 sounds clear, smooth, and distinctive on a clean channel amp w/o effects or the EQ switch engaged. Using a BOSS Metal Zone MT-2 pedal, thru a clean amp, the '42 growls. With the EQ switch engaged the distortion is fuller. Hope that helps.
The guitar AMS sent me has a light spot on the quilt top, under the clearcoat. Looks like someone used a pencil eraser and partially removed the color. The neck is unfinished and as this is my first unfinished neck, I'm a little concerned with it becoming discolored over time.
Intenation was off a bit, but not by much.
