The Ibanez Uppercut RGD7UCS guitar is designed to optimize the 7-string with the cutting-edge UK-based Bare Knuckle pickups. The RGD’s beveled body, contoured horn cuts, extra long 26.5” scale, and ability to accurately intonate heavier string gauges, make it the perfect sexy beast for down-tuned metal and the new Japanese-manufactured Ibanez Uppercut Series.

Founded in 2003, Bare Knuckle has quickly amassed a glowing reputation for building 100% hand-made pickups from the finest, traditionally authentic materials for the discriminating guitarist. As certain models caught the attention of metal players for their tight, articulate sound, it did not go unnoticed by the Ibanez luthiers and so a new partnership began and the Uppercut Series was born.
