Ibanez RGA42 - Black Reviews


RGA 42

Ibanez have a long history (40 years) of making cheap, affordable guitars that sound good, play well and outlast your lifespan in terms of robustness.
This is all marketing spiel of course, so now I\'m going to give the reality side of the coin. Had this guitar for around 4 months, borrowed from a friend, who had it for a month previously and has not changed it since he took it out the box.

Looks - Always a personal thing, to me the simple black is beautiful, simple and effective. Nice finish to it no blotches.

Stock Setup - Nice action, no major deviations or problems with the design, seems well made/constructed with no loose or ill fitting parts. Bridge had no issues, expected as it\'s fixed. Neck is comfortable, as is the body. The stock strings are decent, I changed them out of preference.

Sound - The most important part, even if it looks great and is comfy, if it doesnt sound the part, then you cant love it in my opinion. The sound is rather gorgeous, clean it sounds good, especially with a nice clean sounding amp (I use an Orange Crush 15). Distorted it is a wonder, really meaty distorted tones spring from your amp with this guitar. There are other better sounding clean guitars out there, but they cost alot more, and you could always swap out the pickups, so for the price, the tone is absolutely brilliant.

Features/Longevitity - In terms of features it is a standard set, pickup selection between bridge, centre and middle, active tone/eq control. Simple no surprises guitar, the fixed bridge is a big improvement over other fixed bridges I have used, easy to alter tuning/intonation once set remains spot on without drift.
Robustness is hard to measure, especially when the guitat is not old, but it feels solid, well made and unlikely to fall to bits when you are thrashing it.

Overall - brilliant sound, feel, looks and quality for the price, unless you want a tremelo that is, in which case the RG350DX is right up your street.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
