Metal Machine with a Cool Arched Top!Nu metal, speed metal, thrash metal, black metal - you name it! But no matter what kind of metal you play, one thing's for sure, you need an axe that's up to the challenge and can deliver maximum intensity. You need an Ibanez RGA42TE solidbody electric guitar. Totally tricked out with all the performance ready perks you could ask for, this RGA42TE was born to shred. It all starts off with the RGA42TE's 3-piece maple Wizard III neck and super-flat bound rosewood neck. You just couldn't hope for faster action that this! And that arched-top contour on the RGA42TE's solid mahogany body isn't just for show either. It lets you position your hand at the perfect angle for nearly any picking technique.
Speaking of technique, you'll totally freak out when you get your mitts on the RGA42TE's Edge Zero II tremolo bridge. Combined with a locking nut for added stability, this lets you pull off crazy dive bomb techniques without yanking your tuning totally out of whack. But speed and action aren't all that make a guitar metal ready. That's why Ibanez loaded the RGA42TE electric guitar with a set of classic EMG active humbuckers. Possibly the most popular metal pickups of all times, this combination (an EMG 85 at the neck and an EMG 81 at the bridge) delivers the sound you've heard on countless metal records.
