OVERVIEW

Packed with know-how and features that invite you to new sonic territory.

Looking for new musical expanses to explore? The recognized "First in Seven, Leader in Eight" has thrown down the proverbial gauntlet. After having brought a high-performance 8-string into the range of affordability for every player who heard the siren call of that instrument's musical mysteries, here comes a 9-string RG that promises performance and accessibility no less awesome.

With adark finish on its basswood body, a 28 neck opens up a plethora of downtuning possibilities. Its rosewood fingerboard with classic pearl dot inlays complete the visuals, and the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring.

As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Ultra-9 is yet another achievement for the Ibanez designers in terms of player comfort. Not has Ibanez managed to make the RG9 quite playable, its neck-feel is immediately inspiring.

The proprietary QM-9 humbuckers are designed to thrive in the down tuned netherworld and yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures. Factory tuning from 1st to 9th string is E/B/G/D/A/E/B/F#/C#.

The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength.

    Comments about Ibanez RG Series RG9 9-string Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar, especially if you also play bass. The pickups are surprisingly good, even more so when you consider how much Bareknuckle replacements cost. The bridge is a beast. The 28" scale is perfect for using short-scale bass strings for the lowest two gauges. The neck is ultra-smooth and comfortable, though a tad meaty perhaps. The pickup selector provides everything you'd expect plus an awesome dual-single coil setting for slapping and tapping. Better have a comfortable strap for this monster!
