With the growing popularity of the Iron Label series, Ibanez continues to tap the seismic underworld for inspiration. Working their famous RGD body shape from the chassis up, the RGDIX6MPB is a stunning creation of unique beauty that adds a new dimension to the brand’s no-frills made-for-metal lineup. This striking 6-string electric brings a unique new air of exotic elegance to the Iron Label series.
The guitar’s asymmetric, Poplar Burl top creates a sense of depth, motion and beauty reminiscent of the bluest, most placid waters of the sunlit Caribbean. Pitted against a layered Ash body, these woods combine to create a bright, almost otherworldly color scheme
Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed and articulation, the RGDIX6MPB features a gorgeous, Birdseye Maple fretboard mounted on a 26.5 inch scale 3-piece Maple/Bubinga Nitro Wizard neck that both enhances playing agility and optimizes tonal clarity. The acclaimed Ibanez Gibraltar Standard II bridge improves sustain and provides faultless intonation.
Specifically developed for this guitar through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio—Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with crisp, cutting, high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid range. Ready for metal, the RGDIX6MPB ships from Ibanez, tuned down a full step.
