$ 999.00

Excellent condition, only one very minor clear coat blemish as seen in pictures. Includes hard case.

If you play metal or fusion on a 7-string, Ibanez has designed a guitar just for you. Optimized for heavier music styles, the RG Iron Label RGIX7FDLB executes every note with precision and power. This solidbody electric handles down tuning like a champ — while retaining a comfortable, familiar 25.5″ scale length. The fast Nitro Wizard neck, topped with a silky-smooth bound ebony fingerboard, plays beautifully, while the instrument’s deep cutaways give you unrestricted access to the upper registers. The RGIX7FDLB’s DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups deliver powerful, responsive scooped tone with tight, compressed bass response and crisp high-end bite, while the Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge provides rock-solid intonation and massive sustain. The Ibanez RG Iron Label RGIX7FDLB is a progressive guitarist’s dream come true.

Premium exotic tonewoods

The first thing that will strike you about the Ibanez RGIX7FDLB is the concert of premium tonewoods. The body is made from layered ash, beautifully adorned with a laurel burl top. The burl also caps the headstock. The 3-piece neck is made of maple and purpleheart for stability and tonal clarity. The fretboard is made of rock-hard, smooth-as-glass ebony. These woods add up to a uniquely gorgeous Ibanez RG to inspire your musical exploits.

Nitro Wizard neck and ebony fingerboard

The 3-piece maple/purpleheart neck on the RGIX7FDLB features Ibanez’s Nitro Wizard neck profile, which gives you effortless access to this guitar’s entire range. And for the ultimate in playability, the neck is capped with a luxurious bound ebony fingerboard, providing you with unbelievably smooth fretting. The guitarists here at Sweetwater can’t get enough of this guitar’s fast Nitro Wizard neck.

Fusion Edge humbuckers: made for metal

The Fusion Edge humbucking pickups on the RGIX7FDLB are the result of a collaboration between Ibanez and noted pickup maker DiMarzio. Designed for metal, Fusion Edge pickups deliver a powerful scooped sound with tight, compressed bass response and crisp high-end articulation — ideal for bludgeoning djent chugs and high-speed staccato riffing. The RGIX7FDLB’s DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups give you the aggressive yet precise tone that the modern metal guitarist needs.

Ibanez: a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the “Ibanez Salvador” name, which was later shortened to “Ibanez.” Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
