Ibanez RG2027XL Prestige, Dark Tide Blue
Ibanez once manufactured a 7-string RG with a 27-inch scale neck and, to this day, there are still a lot of requests for the return of that model. Ibanez treated those demands with respect and recreated the 7-string RG, now with modern specifications. The Ibanez RG2027XL is the long-awaited answer to the prayers of some of rock’s most cutting-edge artists.
The 27-inch scale neck optimizes the rich, thick tone of down-tuning while maintaining proper string tension. The 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck delivers rock-solid stability, even with the increased tension of the longer scale.
This Made-In-Japan guitar achieves the three principles of the Prestige line: Precision, Performance and Playability. The RG2027 utilizes the Lo-Pro Edge 7 bridge, which offers maximum playing comfort due to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. The Maccasor Ebony fretboard has a tight response and also contributes to the beautiful appearance of this guitar. The meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provides extra-smooth playing. DiMarzio® Fusion Edge pickups produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end with no muddy mid-range. A hard-shell case is included.
With all these features, this ultimate metal 7-string machine will greatly assist and enhance your creative journey.
Fantastic out the box. Even better after a slight tweak to the setup. The Prestige treatment really is noticeable. Even the stock dimarzios are very versatile if a little lacking in character. Hardcase is very nice but left the guitar covered in fibres but hardly an issue.
