OVERVIEW

A legendary RG model with amazing electronic power.

Rock, metal, and EDM have been rubbing against one another for decades, but now that friction is fueling a blaze of creativity with musical categorization and genre distinction disappearing in the embers. Ibanez, once again, has turned convention on its ear to answer the needs of the modern guitarist: The Ibanez RG with a built-in/detachable mini kaoss pad 2.

The RGKP6 crosses a legendary RG model with a built-in/detachable mini kaoss pad 2, resulting in a hybrid instrument with endless opportunities to incorporate the exhilarating effects of electronic music into your performance.

A mini kaoss pad 2 back panel is integrated into the body of this RG style guitar for quick, secure docking. Positioned just below the guitars volume control, the mini kaoss pad 2 lies in easy reach of the picking hand for realtime manipulation of the touch pad interface, which features 100 effect programs, a synthesizer, built-in MP3 player and a digital recorder to capture performances. Plug your headphones in (1/8" jack) and rock while the rest of the house sleeps!

The RGKP6 features a slim maple Wizard III neck for quick, comfortable playing action and a mahogany body for a warm, rich tone. Electronics include a specifically designed IBZ-KP double blade pickup and a built-in distortion circuit with its own on/off switch and gain/ tone controls.

Built-in Distortion
The RGKP6 comes with onboard high-gain distortion, accessible at the flip of a switch. Fire it up with or without the mini kaoss pad 2S in line to get you to that certain sound you're looking for.

Korg mini kaoss pad 2S
The RGKP6 comes equipped with Korg's latest Kaoss introduction-the mini kaoss pad 2S, loaded with 100 dynamic KAOSS effects.

Headphone Output Jack
Play when and where you want, using the 1/8" stereo headphone jack located next to the main output.

I saw one of these in a Guitar Center today, and spent a good few hours playing it. It will definitely be my next purchase. As someone who loves unique guitars and the band Muse, I have always wanted a kaoss pad infused guitar. Unfortunately, I don't have the $6500 to get a Manson MB-1, but this guitar will do just fine until then. It isn't much on the looks side, but I had more fun playing this guitar than any other guitar I've picked up. The effects selection for the kaoss pad is extensive and has great variety. The built in distortion circuit is not the greatest, but for a built in pedal, it is hard to complain. Not to mention, this guitar is CHEAP for what you are getting. With a nice set up, and a new set of strings, I could see this being my go-to guitar for the foreseeable future. My only other issue is the lack of a tone control, but the other features make this easy to forgive. I really hope this is the start of a new generation of guitars, because I have wanted this for a while.

I play a wonderfully diverse amount of material, and I envisioned this as a new color to add to an already broad pallet. I was disappointed.

The Guitar: this is the worst part. The guitar was just plain awful; extremely rough fret edges, uneven fret tops caused fretting out all over the fingerboard, and the worst sounding pickup ever put in an electric guitar. Ugg!

The built in distortion: Only does one sound: pseudo-metal. If you want a little TS style overdrive, Marshall crunch, or anything else, you won't get it. And, the Metal sound is very canned and artificial.

The Kaoss pad: kinda cool, but ultimately, out of 100 presets, they kind of all sounded alike ... or at least fell into one of only about three categories (Swhooshy, buzzy, and choppy). These sounds would get very old in a hurry.

Mine went back. I'm grateful to Musicians Friend for the easy returns policy. As a side note, mine has already been returned (even though not sold as such) ... so I'm not the only one who decided it was not a "keeper".

        Comments about Ibanez RGKP6 with Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 Electric Guitar:

        Its fun to play, but it's going to take some serious practice before I take it onstage. The built in distortion doesn't sound great, but it is workable. The biggest problem I had is some of the effects from the kaoss pad are really loud compared to the guitar sounds.

            So, the replacement for my 1st RGKP6 arrived today. It was another Level 1 open box item supposed to be in mint condition. I plugged it in and what came out of my amp sounded like a dozen eggs being fried. back it goes. No more for me, thanks.

                Was hoping I might find some use for this despite reading some previous negative reviews. The guitar itself was decent build quality. Very nice for the money. But the kaos pads effects for the most part were not very useful at all, and difficult to utilize while actually playing the guitar. And the built in distortion is a total waste. Worst I've ever used.

                        An interesting guitar this is. Very hard to put down it's so much fun. A lot of the effects on the pad are really similar to each other. The guitar is not too bad but I wish it came with a better pickup. The onboard distortion is a little shrill but dialed in right makes a nice gain boost. All in all a fun rig.

                          I've own this for about 2 weeks now and it's been a lot of fun. I purchased this during a SDOTD for a low price. Over all not a bad guitar but do not expect the guitar to stand up against anything more than two to three hundred costing guitar. I like the pick up and mini kaoss pad is so much fun but the neck is nothing special and adequate at best. I plan to remove the neck and look for something that is going to be closer to a level of craftsmanship I am use to. A couple of tips distortion works better, raising the volume using boost works great, use compression when using clean, sustain pedal works great, and pedals like EHX Key 9 or Source Audio SoundBlox pro Multiwave distortion really bring you to a new level.
