RGA42FM — Blue Lagoon Burst Flat
If Ibanez can lay claim to the title of being the strongest name in metal guitars, then the RGA is the model this reputation was built on. Every inch of this classic axe screams speed, fury, and expression.
The RGA42FM is a hardtail, 6-string electric guitar that features a sultry Flamed Maple top with a white binding, a fast, thin Wizard III Maple neck and a Jatoba fretboard with jumbo frets for maximum left-hand performance. Combined, the neck and fretboard provide a smooth, inviting playing surface and contribute to the RGA42's warm, well-defined tonality. The proprietary Quantum pickups offer an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that never sacrifice high-end articulation. A simple yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation.
Fast and Furious
Featuring a fast maple Wizard III neck and jatoba fingerboard with a 15.7" radius, the Ibanez RGA42FM solidbody electric guitar is purpose-built for high-speed, low-drag playing. It all starts with a perfectly balanced RG mahogany body topped with gorgeous figured maple. You'll love how this guitar feels as soon as you pick it up. And it sports two hot Quantum humbucking pickups, ideal for rock, blues, and metal.
Classic RG performance
The Ibanez RG series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks to the effortless playability of its Wizard III neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and fluid lead lines is effortless on this slim-profile neck.
Fixed bridge stability for rock-solid tuning
This guitar sports a fixed bridge, which means no tuning hassles due to a floating vibrato. From standard to lowered tunings your guitar's tuning will be more stable and the string tension will feel looser. When you change tunings at a gig you'll be ready to rock without messing with the bridge or locking nuts.
Gargantuan tonal range
With two Quantum humbucking pickups and 5-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like. With its aggressive visuals and high output, it will forever be known as a rock guitar; however, its fast playability and tonal variety make it a great instrument for almost any style.
The Maple neck provides stability and bright tonal character.
The F106 bridge enriches sustain. String height adjustment can be done easily and independently.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
Wizard III Maple neck
Ibanez's thin, flat and fast Wizard neck is strong and sturdy and offers unlimited playability and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for a wide tonal range.
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US
Awesome music shop! Very clean, not crowded. Lots of guitars for everyone's musical taste. The staff is super nice, and very informative. I can't say enough good things about Picker's Alley! Thank you so much for serving Southwestern Ontario with such awesome service!!
Great music store. Messaged them about a sale item and they put the last one aside for me until I could get there to purchase.
Tony is by far the best customer service rep around, He knows his stuff, and is always willing to go above and beyond, I only go to pickers alley, for all my musical needs!!
Excellent service, in one word they know what they are doing just tell them your requirement and budget. Don't worry about price if you see it online it's the same price here in offline too. Best thing is the owner's humour and focus on your requirement more than the sales of the store.
Very very happy and satisfied and will be back for additional requirements.
What a great selection of guitars and amps. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. If they don't have what you need chances are they can source it for you. Prices are as competitive as big box music stores so there is no need to look elsewhere. I will continue to support local when I can.
