A fixed bridge and Cosmo black hardware complete the list of hard-rockin' appointments.

      Comments about Ibanez RG421 Electric Guitar:

      I bought this mainly for the Mahogany Body. At the price this is offered that is a good deal. Also, the neck is fantastic and so is the paint job. Its a real eye catcher for sure.

      The pups are not bad, but I will be changing mine out for something with better tone. The action was off so if you don't know how to set one up you might want to pay a Luther to set it up. It was playable, the action was off a bit.

      Its well worth the price for the body and neck alone. If you wanted to create a guitar this is the perfect one to buy for the body and neck, then you can add the pups and other upgrades you want to make this beauty really shine.

      Comments about Ibanez RG421 Electric Guitar:

      Made in Indonesia. They seem to be getting better. Body and neck seem to be quality wood but are not one solid piece. both are four pieces of wood. they are made nicely. nice finish. straight. nice fret work. pick ups sound great for stock. They are keepers for now. The hardware is solid Quality Ibanez. I think this is the best Ibanez for the money. I think that any less expensive Ibanez would be disappointing, Save your Money for this one. The mahogany oil body is awesome. you can feel every chord resonate in it. paint is not good! I would love to see a model like this with a bound neck and some fancier inlays. maybe a Jem Mahogany. Hello Ibanez?!I absolutely recommend this guitar. alternate tunings go easy.it came with decent strings and triple boxed.

      Comments about Ibanez RG421 Electric Guitar:

      I have this model with the Edge 3 tremolo and I have to say for the money you really cant beat these guitars! I bought mine condition 1 from MF and when I got it I made some minor adjustments to the tremolo and off I went. I did replace the bridge pick up with a Dimarzio Tone Zone, not that the pick ups were bad but I just wanted something with a bit more kick and tone. Keep up the work Ibanez and thank you MF!

      Comments about Ibanez RG421 Electric Guitar:

      These guitars are the perfect fix-em-up guitar. They come with decent tuners and hardware, are super easy to set up (no tremolo mess) and are basically designed to be customized. I would recommend ordering a set of pickups alongside this guitar and installing them before you do anything else, because the stock pickups are always poor. That's okay, though, because it gives you the perfect chance to really get the sound you're looking for.

      The only thing I wish they'd have is a larger, easier to work with control cavity. I'll be breaking out the router on this one.
