Ibanez RGIX27FESM Iron Label 7-String Electric Guitar Features
- Basswood body
- Spalted maple top
- 3 piece maple/bubinga neck
- EMG pickups
- Killswitch equipped
The most distinguishing feature of this hard-tail solid body is its striking Spalted Maple top. “Spalted Maple” is a description given to Maple that has begun the initial stages of decay: then dried to prevent further decomposition. This imbues the wood with dark, contrasting patterning that creates a handsome, distinctive appearance. Paired with a Basswood body: these woods create a warm, articulate tone.
Based on the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed, the RGIX27FESM features a spacious bound Ebony fretboard that both enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation. The acclaimed Ibanez Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge improves sustain and provides faultless intonation, while EMG 707 pickups effectively produce a distinctive tone with thick, complex distortion and plenty of depth to help you mold your signature sound.
An infinitely usable finishing touch comes in the form of a convenient Killswitch for spastic rhythms and electrifying strobe effects that will help take your solos into another dimension. The RGIX27FESM is yet another reason why the Ibanez Iron Label series is winning over new die-hard converts, every day.
