RGR421EXFM


Hi there,

Imo, best "nice priced" rg of the year rg is that one;
RGR421EXFM

http://www.ibanez.com/eg/guitar.aspx?m=RGR421EXFM


(Rich says;"RGR421EXFMBBS - Reverse headstock 3 piece maple Wizard II neck with jumbos on a bound rosewood board, mahogany body with flame maple top, fixed bridge, IBZ designed by EMG neck and bridge pickups. Available in BBS [Blackberry Sunburst]. $599.99 List price. Case is the RG140C at $99.99.")

It reminds me the Rob Balducci model guitar. I believe this guitar might be much better with some modifications...

And my silver medal goes to that one;
RGT42FXQMTGB

Re: RGR421EXFM


I'm waiting for that RGR421 myself. As soon as they are in stores i'll be bring one home. It's pretty much exactly what i've wanted for sometime and was going to build a custom about the same, so this is going to save me some cash.

That top one is gorgeous, it's a bolt-on isn't it?

Re: RGR421EXFM


I was going to buy this one in a few weeks, but I purchased a RGA121VLF last night that was on clearance (new, $729USD) from Acclaim Electronics in Ontario (see the thread in the Prestige forum about this company). I guess I'll wait a year until I buy the RGR421EXFM. The EMG pickups look a bit suspect though. Does anyone know what they are modeled after (e.g. EMG-HZ)?

Man I wonder if they will be reasonably priced when they reach Australia? I starting to GAS for one of those for a Paul Gilbert style axe, switch the pickups and wail!

AAAARRRGGGHH!! They look awesome - specially the top one! Now all Ibanez has to do is offer those finishes on the fancier japanese built stuff - with colour options - and all will be right with the world!

Re: RGR421EXFM


somebody better get one of these when they come out in the next couple weeks and post some reviews. I'm quite eager to see how good these end up being. Anybody here own the rg521? I'm guessing they will be pretty similar in quality.

Re: RGR421EXFM


I just picked one up last week. I can honestly say this is the best Ibanez, besides Paul Gilbert's old white PGM, that I've picked up stock. Everything was spot on. No dead spots, no sharp protruding fret ends, no fretting out, acoustically sounds good, all the hardware was tightened down and the finish had zero flaws. The pickups are just okay though. A passive version of some 85's, but with a tad less output. I bought a Symour Duncan hotrod set, JB and Jazz. That guitar was made for those pups and should have had them stock! This guitar is going everywhere with me now! Been playing out with it almost everyday now and got a cool blues/bar jam tonight that it's going to. With the pickups swap I have 100% satisfaction!

Re: RGR421EXFM


I've played the RGR--my local music store has one and my guy says he'll give it to me for $400 out the door. Plays nice, but like everyone's been saying, the pickups are seriously lacking in tone, so an EVO set would probably be in order. I'm looking to put together an old cruncher with more vintage sound and gain (maybe Dimarzio PAF Pro or Norton). Wonder if this guitar would fit the bill for that...?

Re: RGR421EXFM


I'd love another hardtail just for sticking in weird open/drop tunings...
