Ibanez RG420EG-SBK review

Filed under: Guitar reviews — Tags: , , , , — audiofanzine @ 5:14 pm

It’s already been 25 years. You wouldn’t think so, but the RG model from our Japanese friends, Ibanez, first appeared a quarter of a century ago, and has since made its way into the Metal and shredder guitar hall of fame.

I didn’t know anything about this particular model beforehand, so I was quite surprised when I opened the case. Though the strat-like shape, the neck, and the hardware are standard for an RG, the finish was anything but typical. A spider web, at the center of which is a volume knob, is sculpted into the very wood of the guitar, and covers the whole body. The body is also covered with a rough black granular finish. After endorsing the likes of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Paul Gilbert, is Ibanez now endorsing Spiderman? The answer is probably negative, but I imagine that if he played a guitar, it would look like this RG420.
