OVERVIEW

A legendary guitar pairs with a legendary artist.

In one of the most interesting pairings worlds of the visual and musical arts in recent memory, designer H.R. Giger, best known for the creature of "Alien" fame, has joined forces with Ibanez, the fretted-instrument maker for heavy metal band Korn, jazz guitarist George Benson and many others.

The Ibanez RGTHRG2 features Giger's "NY City XI - Exotic" painting on the Ibanez RG body design popular among heavy metal guitarists. 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, flat and fast necks and double-locking trems, the RG has divebombed and crunched its way to classic status. To the RG's lethal combination of features, RG Prestige models add the comfortable, rounded feel of Prestige neck finishing, drop-dead good looks and top-shelf electronics and hardware.

The H.R. Giger signature guitars are a very limited production run and will undoubtedly become highly sought-after collector's items.

A great rhythm and lead guitar!

By Matorres510

from Hayward, CA

I was skeptical of the guitar at first. I'm an ESP guitar player myself, but when I saw this I loved the alien design! When I played it, MAAN! It plays great. Leads are a breeze with upper fret access and rhythm is great with the jumbo frets. The pick ups are stocks, they are decent, but not my cup of tea. Personally I installed EMG 81s with a 3 way selector rather than the 5 way switching. Overall a great guitar. And good luck gettin' the Edge Pro 2 trem into your desired tunning, hehe.

Made for Metal

This is my first Ibanez. Normally, I classify this brand in the IBENHAD dept. However, after playing on this guitar I am sold. Awesome and extremely flexible. Sound was solid running through Marshall Stack.

A great guitar

By guitarbeast237

from Mineola, TX

I'm not really a shredder, but I am an experienced guitar player and this guitar is an excellent choice for anyone in the lead guitar world. The neck is seamless and just begs to be shredded. The body has a nice balance to it, and the only reason I didn't give 10 stars for quality was the pickups aren't as awe-inspiring as the rest of the instrument. Maybe it was just the amp I used at the store, but they didn't have a presence. But that is easily fixed with some evolutions. Overall a great lead guitar instrument.

The Giger R.G.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I do not own the RGTHR2, I own the RGTHR1. I am a fan of Giger's artwork and I play mostly ibanez guitars. And I am proud to own it. It is such a unique and rare guitar. Sound good? yes. the quality is absolutley amazing. Although mine is mostly for show because of its limited avalability. It is the favorite of my collection of 5.
