NAMM 2010: Check The New RGD Series from Ibanez!
As a pioneer of heavy rock guitars, Ibanez has released 7- and 8-string models in the past. This year they release the RGD series, Ibanez’s new heavy metal machines, with extra long scale!
Heavy rock guitars are required to output clear sound down to the lowest note without losing playability. So Ibanez kept the neck scale to a 1-inch minimum between frets, and original tuned pickups are mounted.
Heavy rock guitarists usually hold their guitars low, and the sharpshaped RGD body achieves good balance and easier access to high frets for low-slung players.
