Ibanez builds guitars for all levels of players - from beginners to the most demanding masters of the instrument. Regardless of price, Ibanez always strives to offer the absolute best sound, style, and playability in its class.
With the growing popularity of the Iron Label series, Ibanez continues to tap the seismic underworld for inspiration. Working their famous RGD body shape from the “chassis” up, the RGDIM6FM is a stunning creation of unique beauty that adds a new dimension to the brand’s no-frills “made-for-metal” lineup.
The RGDIM6FM comes with a Flamed Maple top on dark finished Ash/Mahogany body. The 26.7”/25.5” multi scale provides specific individual string tension to create a more “open” or “lively” tone that not only expands harmonic complexity, but also offers a more comfortable playing experience. Designed for playability, the frets are angled to match a player’s natural hand position so as to facilitate a more natural feel at all points on the Ebony fretboard. As a result, shredding on higher frets is near effortless. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the neck’s highest notes. The fretboard also features luminescent side-dot inlays to provide a clear point of reference when playing at darker venues.
The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups provide an aggressive tone and a powerful attack without unwanted noise. These pickups are also equipped with a unique voicing system. Voicing one is an active high output voicing characterized by Fishman as “The ideal active ceramic humbucker tone. Crisp, searing crunch, tight bass with no mud, and a growl”, while voicing two, a modern passive attack, is described by Fishman as, “Organic, high output, passive ceramic tone [yielding] superb distortion characteristics with Fluence, dynamics and response”. Voicing can be changed by using the push/pull function on the volume knob.
Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings and facilitates flawless intonation. The RGD Iron Label is a perfect choice for the metal player looking for a more modern guitar that features the ultimate in both sound and playability.
