Looking for new musical expanses to explore? Ibanez, a leader in the world of guitars with more than six strings, has thrown down the proverbial gauntlet. After creating an affordable, high-performance 8-string for players who heard the siren call of that instrument's musical mysteries, Ibanez now offers a 9-string RG with just as much performance promises and accessibility.
The RG9's 28" neck opens up a plethora of down-tuning possibilities. the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring.
As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Ultra-9 is yet another achievement for the Ibanez designers in terms of player comfort. Not only has Ibanez managed to make the RG9 quite playable, but its neck-feel is also immediately inspiring.
The proprietary QM-9 humbuckers are designed to thrive in the down tuned netherworld and yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures.
