The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5" scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a "fast" neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.

Nitro Wizard 3pc Maple/Purpleheart neck: Legendary Super-thin, ultra-playable neck, made by Maple/Purpleheart with road-tested durability.
Ebony fretboard: Ebony produces a tight low and mid range with an iconic attack on the high end. It also features a quick response and rich sustain.
Multi scale: Equalized tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
Mono-rail bridge: The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others.
Luminescent side dot inlay: The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
