Ibanez RG Series Premium RG1070PBZCKB Electric Guitar
Color: CKB - Charcoal Black Burst
Ibanez RG1070PBZ Overview
Styled in a charcoal black burst finish, the Ibanez RG1070PBZ is an electric guitar featuring a double-cutaway body shape, three pickups for tonal options, and a variety of exotic woods throughout. The body is constructed out of American basswood and features a 7mm poplar burl top. The 11-piece Wizard neck, which has been bolted onto the body, utilizes panga panga, walnut, maple, and purpleheart woods in its construction to facilitate both solidity and sustain. The scale measures 25.5”, while a panga panga fingerboard offers 24 jumbo stainless steel frets with mother-of-pearl off-set dot inlays, as well as luminescent markings on the side of the neck to indicate your positioning even on dark stages.
For electronics, this guitar features DiMarzio pickups, including an Air Norton humbucker in the neck, a True Velvet single coil in the middle, and a Tone Zone at the bridge. The bridge humbucker provides a warm tone that doesn’t stray into muddy tonalities, while the neck humbucker offers a hot signal, wide dynamic range, and a developed tone in the bass and midrange frequencies to give the sound heft and depth. The single coil, located in the middle, is tuned to a bright—yet not thin—frequency range, to give an equal sweetness to notes above the 12th fret. A five-way pickup-selector switch allows for various combinations and tonal options, while a shared set of volume and tone knobs provides broader level and timbre controls.
Strings have been secured to the body with an Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge sporting a ZPS3Fe spring system for facilitating whammy pyrotechnics while preserving intonation and playing comfort. At the headstock, Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads further preserve tuning stability.
