Ibanez RGD Axion Label 7 String Electric Guitar in Charcoal Burst Black Flat RGD71ALPACKF


Ibanez RGD Axion Label 7 String Electric Guitar in Charcoal Burst Black Flat RGD71ALPACKF

The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, Ibanez extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5" scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a "fast" neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.

Axion Label
The Axion Label series takes the established elements of modern electric guitar design and push them to new, lesser-explored territory. Similar to how the Bass Workshop series delivers the cutting-edge of bass, Axion Label dives into elements like multi-scale design, ultra-modern pickups from Fishman, Bare Knuckle, and DiMarzio, as well as hardware innovations like the Evertune bridge. These elements are just the tip of the iceberg for this ultra-modern series, and only the beginning of its ultimate potential.

Features
• Nitro Wizard 5pc Panga Panga/Walnut neck - The Super-thin and ultra-playable Nitro Wizard 5-piece Panga Panga/Walnut neck substantially increases sustain.
• Macassar Ebony fretboard - Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.
• Jumbo Sub Zero treated frets - Sub Zero treated frets can stand up against the hardest riffing and string-bending.
• Poplar Burl top / Layered Ash & Nyatoh body - The Poplar Burl top impresses with an exotic wood grain. Combining Ash and Nyatoh delivers a well-balanced tone, from bottom low-end all the way to the top.
• Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups - Hand-wound in UK, Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mid and superb high-end articulation.
• Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads - The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
• Mono-rail bridge - Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings
• Coil-tap switch - The coil tap switch adds sound and tonal variations for both pickups.
• Schaller S-Locks strap lock pins - Indestructible Schaller S-Locks don't fail, even under the toughest conditions on stage.
• 26.5 inch scale - Its extra long 26.5" scale and ability to accurately intonate heavier string gauges, make it the perfect beast for down-tuned metal.
