If you play metal or fusion on a 6-string, Ibanez has designed a guitar just for you. Optimized for heavier music styles, the RG Iron Label RGIX6FDLB executes every note with precision and power. This solidbody electric handles down-tuning like a champ — while retaining a comfortable, familiar 25.5" scale length. The fast Nitro Wizard neck, topped with a silky-smooth bound ebony fingerboard, plays beautifully, while the instrument's deep cutaways give you unrestricted access to the upper registers. The RGIX6FDLB's DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups deliver powerful, responsive scooped tone with tight, compressed bass response and crisp high-end bite. The Ibanez RG Iron Label RGIX6FDLB is a progressive guitarist's dream come true.
The first thing that will strike you about the Ibanez RGIX6FDLB is the concert of premium tonewoods. The body is made from layered ash, beautifully adorned with a laurel burl top. The burl also caps the headstock. The 3-piece neck is made of maple and purpleheart for stability and tonal clarity. The fretboard is made of rock-hard, smooth-as-glass ebony. These woods add up to a uniquely gorgeous Ibanez RG to inspire your musical exploits.
The 3-piece maple/purpleheart neck on the RGIX6FDLB features Ibanez's Nitro Wizard neck profile, which gives you effortless access to this guitar's entire range.
The Fusion Edge humbucking pickups on the RGIX6FDLB are the result of a collaboration between Ibanez and noted pickup maker DiMarzio. Designed for metal, Fusion Edge pickups deliver a powerful scooped sound with tight, compressed bass response and crisp high-end articulation — ideal for bludgeoning djent chugs and high-speed staccato riffing. The RGIX6FDLB's DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups give you the aggressive yet precise tone that the modern metal guitarist needs.
Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn't get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the "Ibanez Salvador" name, which was later shortened to "Ibanez." Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
