A versatile, affordable rocker's weapon.
The Ibanez RGR320EX electric guitar's pickups and pickup placement provide the hard-edged cutting tone needed for heavy rock. This RG features a rare reverse headstock and a special textured finish.
Since 1987, many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups and flat, fast necks, the RG has divebombed and crunched its way to classic status.
As heavy as it rocks, the RGR320EX guitar is made of basswood, a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is right in between alder and mahogany in sound character. 24 jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording and the Edge III tremolo bridge lets you divebomb all night long.
- Basswood Body
- 24/Jumbo frets
- Bound Rosewood Finger Board

there is nothing wrong with this guitar. the edge III is not the problem. the tremolo is fine i have 6 ibanez guitars with them and they are fine. all double locking tremolos are meant for one tuning only. other than that i really wish this guitar was still n production.
Plays like a dream. Edge 3 is a pain in the a** to work with, but worth it in the end. It's a great tremolo system. Mine is in Red Arctic Frost like the RGR420EX. Ibanez deliver again!
I've had this guitar for about 6 months now. First, the good:The tone is excellent, even with stock pickups. There is a healthy diversity of tones to choose from. I prefer heavily distorted metal (what the guitar was designed for), and it works beautifully.If set up correctly, this guitar would probably play like a dream. But that's where I get into the bad:The set up on mine is terrible right now. There is constant, nasty string buzz coming off the bottom 2 strings, and the height of the action dramatically increases as you reach the higher frets. I'm guessing these problems are related to the Edge III, which is where I get into the ugly:The Edge III is a nightmare. Sure, it works quite well as a whammy, but the system itself screws up the entire guitar. Once you set the system up in a certain tuning, you can't change it again without completely adjusting the system. Otherwise the whole guitar goes slightly out of tune due to tension problems.This guitar has a lot of potential, but you'll almost certainly have to get it fixed (unless you buy from a shop). I'm going to take mine and pay for a set-up soon. It could play like a dream, it just needs some tweaks to get there.Bottom Line: Good guitar, but be prepared to spend a little extra to get it set up properly. After that you should be quite satisfied.
This guitar is a sweet deal for what you pay for it. I've been playing for about 6 months now and love it. definately worth it.
This is about the most metal looking super strat I've ever seen. The finish looks cool and you don't have to polish it, the inlays are about the best looking ones you can get for Metal, and the reversed headstock and the headstock design are great! From the back you can see the wood on the neck which looks a little out of place after just seeing the front, but that's okay because it feels good and you can easily move around the neck with a good balance of friction.For a metal guitar, it's average weight- compared to rock guitars people are used to telecasters, strats, it's fairly heavy. Nothing you can't get used to.The pickups are pretty good, and it's easy to change them out to ones you prefer. They're Ibanez pickups, not EMGs. I don't know what's up with that, maybe Ibanez hired someone to steal EMG's design, but then later the Ibanez people felt bad and decided to write "designed by EMG" and engrave "Ibanez" in the corner, hoping no one would notice.The floyd rose clone tremolo works fine. When you put on new strings it takes a couple days before it becomes stable and then the tuning is solid, even if you abuse the whammy bar, it stays in tune really well.I have yet to research how to adjust the tremolo system so I can get the action and fine tuning I want. I'm expecting it to be painful though.This is my main guitar, I've had it for a couple years and it hasn't failed me yet, it plays really well, the action is a tad high for my tastes, but I'll work on it, and overall it is a very nice guitar. Ibanez did a good job making this a high-performance economical instrument! BUY IT NOW!
Wow this is one of the best investments I've ever made. Forget what you've been told, if you play any kind of distorted guitar, this is about the best you can find. The pickups are simply magic and the action is ridiculous. Smooth as butter to play. I bought it and have never looked back, you should do the same today.
This guitar amazed me when I bought it! It has EMG pickups, veeeeery easy to play and it also has 24 frets! The only thing that ticked me off was that it is hard to tune. GREAT BUY!!!
I just bought this guitar in the new 2007 Red Arctic Frost finish and the finish on this guitar is beautiful. This is the same guitar as the one pictured here but the one I own is red the one up top is in the Roadrage Black. Overall this guitar is solid! With its solid Basswood body and Wizard II slim profile neck, it is a killer guitar. The Edge III trem on this guitar is actually smoother then that of a Floyd design , I know cause I have a Floyd on my BC Rich. The only downfall of this guitar is the pickups on it, Yes they are EMG but they are passive and are medium output. I am a well seasoned guitar player with over 30 years of playing and although the pups on this guitar are ok the rest of the guitar is great. I will be changing the pups to GFS Crunchy Rails and these are killer pups!
This is one hell of a guitar. After playing the Ibanez GAX70, the neck and low action on this guitar are a real dream. The texture and finish are awesome, and it goes with the EMGs. The sharktooth inlays are wicked, and the tremolo is a pleasure to use. My only gripe is that an active set of EMGs like and 81/85 or a 60/81, but the passive set adds to this guitar's charisma.
THIS IS TOP OF THE LINE.this guitar neck is satin but it feels like a fast gloss its amazing and the reverse headstock looks so cool this trem is awsome to 2. stays in tune. pickups are good but not amzing.its tad bit heavy. very comfortable body neck. i love how you can reach the 24 fret with no problem what so ever.overall this is a great guitar.
