RG421HPFM - Blue Reef Gradation
Ibanez has remained the strongest name in metal guitars because of the outstanding playability and peerless performance of Ibanez instruments. From carefully selected materials to pro-level hardware and high-profile electronics, every detail is deeply considered and designed. The Ibanez High Performance series delivers high-end performance and road warrior dependability.
The RG420HPFM features a stunning Flamed Maple body top and a Nyatoh body back which create a truly mesmerizing visual aura and a warm, yet expressive, tone. A Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood's stability and durability. It provides a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. A Jatoba fretboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering up and down the full length of the fretboard. It has luminescent side dot position marks to make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages. The DiMarzio® Air Norton™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 3-way pickup and coil tap switches. A fixed bridge boasts a new low profile design, allowing plenty of picking hand freedom while optimizing tuning stability.
The F106 bridge enriches sustain. String height adjustment can be done easily and independently.
A pair of high-output DiMarzio Air Norton™ and The Tone Zone® pickups provides a huge sound with a broad dynamic range.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
