This guitar is immaculate. I love it but I have not played it much at all since I connect better with 8 strings.
It has a much darker fingerboard than the ones the model is commonly known for.
I installed Dunlop strap locks and am including an Ernie Ball denim strap that matches its look as well as an extra set of strings.
A made-for-metal 9-string that’s packed with power.
The RGIR9FME features a 28” scale-length which unlocks a plethora of down-tuning possibilities. The RGIR9FME’s Indian rosewood fretboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering up and down the full length of the fretboard. The legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Nitro Wizard neck enhances playing agility and optimizes clarity. The EMG 909 pickups offer plenty of sonic diversity and power. Designed for stability and sustain, the rock-solid Gibraltar Standard II-9 bridge is ready to handle the most extreme string bends and aggressive rhythm techniques. With the purposefully spartan “Made-for-Metal” Iron Label guitars, you won’t find a feature that doesn’t contribute directly to waking the dead.
