Neck-through sustain, stinging looks, and double-hum signal strength.
The precision-crafted maple Wizard II neck goes right through the basswood body for loads of extra sustain. 2 open-coil humbuckers with straightforward single tone and volume knobs deliver a broad, hot signal that gives your amp more to work with. The recessed bridge cavity lets you yank mercilessly on the locking vibrato. The Powder Cosmo finish on the hardware adds a cool touch to the deep black pearl finish. The bound rosewood fretboard gives you 24 jumbo frets of screaming room.

I love this guitar! I have had mine for about 7 months now and I must say I never thought I would love a Ibanez so much. From its thur neck construction to the Infinity pick-up's. Everything about this axe screams quality. I traded a Jackson Dinky in on it and have never looked back. I play this fine guitar everyday and will for sometime to come. If you are looking for a great axe with va-voom to spare ...You my friend are looking for the RGT42!
This guitar is fricken awesome. It has a very wide range of different tones to choose from. When my Crate GX-130C is on the rhythm channel you can get some clean and softer tones out of this guitar. On the other hand, on the lead channel you get extremely heavy sounds that have the perfect amount of bass, and wicked treble. I love the Floyd Rose package on this thing. You can pull as hard as you want to on that wammy bar and you'll never get out of tune. When I first got the guitar I was still kinda new to the guitar world so I had no idea to what the heck on the knobs and bolts were all about so my uncle told me. It was a good thing because I was getting tired of lossening the nut locks when I tuned the guitar. So when I started tuning the guitar the way I was supossed to the little knobs at the end of the bridge they were a bit hard to turn, but thoose only need a bit of wearing in. Overall the RGT42BP is a very good guitar. I have never heard anything else like it in all of my 13 years of life. And just because I'am 13 years old dosen't mean I'm bad at playing I'm fricken awesome. I'm THE BEST in my school.
This very special guitar is the ideal guitar for anyone playing rock or metal. I wouldn't think it would be good for anything else. The wonderful tremolo is smooth and squeak-free, but the spring resistance is just a tad too stong in my opinion. Changing the strings isn't that hard with the edge pro trems. All of the 24 jumbo frets have a good feel and easy access. Beautiful transition from the neck to the body. I would give a 10 for the Infinity Pickups. They have a wide range of tones, all of them are perfectly balanced. I love them. The bad parts are: The volume knob is very noisy and abruptly cuts the noise instead of gradually decaying it. It gets kinda annoying. The binding is a dark yellow at the top of the neck and then turns significantly lighter at the end. Unless you look at it under lots of light, you can see bumps and errors on the body. Alot of areas in the grain of the fretboard are an ugly white. But still, this is an excellent guitar.
This guitar is loaded with dark edge appeal, and had has enough tone and sustain to knock out your grandpa's fake teeth. The only issue I had with it was the trem, but it just needs to be broken in. Overall it's a good all around rocker. If you can try to find it's more upscale sister, the RG320 DXQM, get it! The beautiful Quilt maple top will make Men weep, Women swoon on sight,& Kids of all ages ache for one, but it's discontinued but I was lucky enough to find one. Otherwise the RTG is excellent for all genres, no matter what style you play.
