RGA742 FM DEF 7 String


Add to Cart

An Attractive and Aggressive 7-string

The RGA742FM solidbody electric guitar is the flagship 7-string in Ibanez's sleek and aggressive RGA series of instruments. The RGA742FM gives you an amazingly fast 3-piece maple Wizard II-7 neck and a resonant, well-balanced mahogany body that's topped with an eye-catching figured maple top. The combination of these tonewoods offers a fat tone with plenty of top-end cut. And this guitar's duet of Quantum ceramic humbucker pickups delivers plenty of output and high-end clarity for a precise and tight tone. Get your hands on the Ibanez RGA742FM today.

Classic Wizard performance

The Ibanez RG series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades. A large part of the reason for this is the effortless playability of Ibanez's Wizard neck profiles. The Wizard II-7's slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the girth you need for fretting chords. Ask any of Sweetwater's in-house Ibanez players — the Wizard neck is a player's dream come true.

Fixed Bridge 7 for absolute tuning stability

The RGA742FM sports Ibanez's Fixed Bridge 7, which means you'll be able to adjust your tuning and nail precise-sounding bends without worrying about your intonation. Lowered tunings will be more stable and string tension will feel looser as well. And when you face an emergency string change at the gig, you'll be ready to rock without messing with the vibrato, tremolo springs, or the guitar's locking nut. If you're looking for a fast-playing instrument without the hassle of a trem, check out the Ibanez RGA742FM.

Massive tonal range

With two high-output Quantum ceramic humbucker pickups plus 5-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like. With the Quantum humbucker's carefully calibrated design, the low end's fullness — while still remaining extremely tight-sounding — will surprise you. And these humbucking pickups were specifically designed for Ibanez, so you won't find them anywhere else. And although the RGA will forever be known as a rock guitar, the Quantum pickups' tonal variety makes them great for almost any style.
