Overview

Screaming speed and serious classic metal style.

The Ibanez RG470DX RG Series 6-string electric guitar unleashes pure metal fury with its thin, fast Wizard III maple neck and sleek meranti body. Developed for guitarists who demand both playing comfort and lightning fast speed, the RG470DX allows you to blaze across the fingerboard with ease. Its Quantum pickups produce focused, vintage-modern tones perfect for everything from soaring leads to crunchy rhythm. With a smooth jatoba fingerboard, jumbo frets, sharktooth inlays and a double locking tremolo bridge, this Ibanez guitar provides exceptional playability you can count on in any live performance situation.

Shred With Ease Using the Wizard III Maple Neck

The Wizard III maple neck on the RG470DX lives up to its magical name, promoting effortless speed and fluid playing. Its thin, flat profile offers unmatched comfort, allowing your fingers to fly up and down the neck during solos and riffs. The silky satin finish enhances your grip for accurate, precise fretting. Designed specifically for shredding, this Wizard neck gives you the perfect blend of contour and slimness to conquer even the most demanding passages and techniques with ease.

Access Thick, Aggressive Tones With the Quantum Pickups

Outfitted with a powerful trio of Quantum pickups, the Ibanez RG470DX serves up thick, aggressive rock tones perfect for metal and hard rock. The Quantum neck pickup produces warm, vintage-flavored leads, while the Quantum middle pickup adds snarl and attitude to rhythms. For searing solos, the Quantum bridge pickup unleashes high-output crunch with excellent note separation. With a 5-way switch, you can blend the pickups and shape your tone for everything from clean arpeggios to heavy distorted riffing.

Enhance Playability With Jatoba Fingerboard

The RG470DX features a jatoba fingerboard with jumbo frets and pearl sharktooth inlays for excellent playability. Jatoba offers a dense, rigid feel that enhances note articulation and makes string bending smooth and responsive. The large pearloid sharktooth inlays provide great visual references while you're shredding up and down the neck. With its 16" fingerboard radius, the Ibanez stays comfortable during intricate solos and speedy passages.

Stay in Tune Using the Double Locking Tremolo

No matter how aggressively you use the whammy bar, the RG470DX's double locking tremolo system keeps your guitar sounding pitch perfect. The knife-edge bridge saddles add precision to the tuning stability, while the sturdy steel base plate provides a rock-solid foundation for dive bombs, flutter effects and other radical techniques.
