Ibanez RG421 03 Superstrat Mahogany Oil


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Ibanez RG421 03 model is a familiar looking guitar commonly referred to as a “Superstrat”. This name comes from their appearance, similar to the Fender Stratocaster, but with features extending function beyond Fender’s stock models. This model from Ibanez sharpens its lines to give it a more modern appearance, and unlike many ‘Superstrat’ versions uses a fixed or ‘Hard Tail’ bridge rather than a trem or vibrato.

The Ibanez RG421 is a simple looking well thought out guitar. It features a Meranti body and a bolt on maple neck with a Jatoba fretboard. These are finished with oil,  for a smooth, satin feel.   The neck is a fairly slim and fast playing. Many students or beginner guitar players will benefit from its easy playing feel. In addition to the comfortable feeling neck the deep double cutaway provides excellent access to the upper frets.

For electronics, the Ibanez RGB421 has two humbucker pickups, a five way pickup selector and master volume and tone controls. This means you have five different sounds to access from the pickups. Three of the positions give you the full warm and thick sound of the humbuckers and the other two are coil taps, which provide a single coil sound for that bright articulate snap. These tonal options are great for students and beginner guitar players just starting to discover what tones they enjoy.

The Ibanez RG421 Super strat style guitar is very well made for the price point with overall good fretwork and fit and finish. I have been focusing on the benefits of this guitar for the beginner or student players however; these features will appeal to many players that are looking for a great instrument.

The Ibanez RG421 is sold without case.
