The RGD is Ibanez’s ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in ”normal” guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5” scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a ”fast” neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.
There are three principles behind the Ibanez Prestige line: Precision, Performance, and Playability. Prestige combines high-tech manufacturing techniques with old-world Japanese craftsmanship, in order to achieve true innovation in design and construction. The series incorporates ideas and suggestions from musicians from around the world as the cornerstones of the Prestige production process.
