Ibanez Prestige Uppercut RG6UCS-MYF, Mystic Night Metallic Flat
Ibanez Prestige Uppercut RG6UCS-MYF Overview by GAK:
Ibanez have been at the forefront of modern rock guitar design for a long time and the introduction of the RG in 1987 cemented their legacy. 30 years later and 2017 sees the refinement of this classic design with this no-compromise Prestige Uppercut RG6UCS. About as close to a perfect trem-equipped modern rock guitar as you are going to get, the Ibanez Uppercut RG6UCS is stripped to the core essentials whilst exuding the class and supreme build quality you would expect from a Japanese crafted Prestige instrument. The Basswood body has an extremely well balanced tone and has a smooth, 'flat' satin finish. The Lo-Pro Edge bridge is considered by many to be the ultimate locking tremolo and tuning stability is furthered by locking studs. Also new for 2017 are upgraded stainless steel frets!
Hand-wound in UK, the Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation; perfect for the modern metal guitarist. The Aftermath bridge humbucker features a symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coil design and is powered by 3 custom size ceramic magnets. With a more compressed dynamic, single notes have masses of sustain while the front of the note is clear-cut and defined even under extreme amounts of gain. The Aftermath neck humbucker is Alnico V powered and voiced for fat, powerful clean tones, fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard and good balance with the bridge humbucker. As Bare Knuckle Pickups' MD Tim Mills discovered, "Ibanez were as obsessive about tone as myself and thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of guitar design including pickups" and he is very proud for his excellent pickups to be chosen for the Uppercut series.
The Super Wizard HP 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck has KTS™ Titanium reinforcement rods for stability. There's a genuine Ebony fingerboard which, combined with the immaculate Prestige Fret Edge Treatment on the extremely hard and smooth stainless steel frets, provides a playing experience second to none. We can't think of anything else that could improve this awesome guitar! Fitted hardshell case included.
