Player's Perspective

If you're looking for a boutique example of just how nice an Ibanez guitar can be, then look no further! Music Store Live is proud to offer up this limited edition j.custom RG that simply has one of the fastest and most shred-ready necks ever put on a guitar with hardware and pickups that will complement the beautiful styling. This one is very much a one-of-a kind guitar that is going to grab people's attention the moment you pull it out of the case.

Make no mistake about it, this guitar wants to be played fast. It's designed from top to bottom to make shredding at breakneck speeds easier than ever. The DiMarzio pickups in this one were specifically made for Ibanez. They retain clarity, articulation, and definition, even when laden with heavy saturation. The Floyd Rose-inspired hardware gives you infinite flexibility with your tremolo. Whether you're dive-bombing like a stunt pilot or just laying down some light flutter, you'll never have to worry about sacrificing intonation. This guitar wants you to play it fast and it wants to hit the front end of your amp hard. That's what it was designed to do and it does it extraordinarily well. But unlike a lot of shredder axes out there, you can also clean up really nicely and the pickups have a sweet enough mid-range where you can get beautiful clean sounds when you aren't trying to melt faces.

This is a thoroughly pro-quality instrument, right here. It's quite versatile while still being oriented for more modern and aggressive styles of playing. Perfect for somebody that wants to look great on the big stage but needs playability and tone that will back that up! The j.custom Ibanez guitars are some of the best production Ibanez guitars that money can buy.

Manufacturer's Description

Ibanez j.custom guitars are manufactured by an elite group of highly skilled luthiers trained to produce instruments of uncompromised quality. The j.custom designation represents every advance in design and technology Ibanez has developed over the decades: the best woods, neck, fret treatments, perfect pickup combinations, and reliable hardware. Each j.custom guitar is masterfully crafted to the highest standards to ensure unparalleled sound, maximum playability and exquisite beauty.

This one features a swamp ash body with a snappy tone and rich resonance, capped off with a stunning buckeye burl top filled with blue resin. The ebony fretboard features an iconic and beautiful Tree-of-Life inlay. The Super Wizard wenge and purpleheart neck provides exceptional playability and rock-solid stability even under the most extreme playing conditions, and the “Velvetouch” finish on neck back and j.custom fret edge treatment ensures a "just right" feel and ease of playing. The Edge-Zero tremolo bridge features a lower profile design for playing comfort and a stud lock function for superior tuning stability – plus, the ZPS3 Zero Point System further enhances tuning stability and ease of tuning. The DiMarzio® Fusion Edge™, True Velvet™, and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth, and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch.

DiMarzio Ibanez Pickups

The DiMarzio®/IBZ pickups are specifically designed and manufactured by DiMarzio® for Ibanez, and they are not available separately. Like all DiMarzio® pickups, they are made in our New York factory. Both neck and bridge pickups are high-output models. The neck pickup is fairly bright-sounding, similar to a Super 2™ (DP104). The bridge pickup is a little louder and warmer-sounding, and resembles a cross between the Steve Morse Bridge Model™ (DP200) and the Super Distortion® (DP100).
