Ibanez RG9QM Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for guitarists who want a down-tuned guitar for the most metal of situations, the Ibanez RG Standard Series RG9QM is a nine-string electric guitar in a black ice finish. Its solid body features a quilted maple top and a basswood body, while its Wizard-9 five-piece maple/walnut neck features a longer scale of 28" to accommodate the tension of extra strings. The bolt-on neck has a jatoba fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and white inlays. Strings are secured to the body with a Gibraltar II-9 bridge.

For electronics, the guitar is outfitted with Quantum humbucking pickups, one in the neck and another in the bridge position. These pickups offer an accelerated bass response that helps quick, staccato riffs cut through the mix. You'll also note the hefty midrange and precise articulation of the trebles that this pickup provides. The volume and the tone knobs give you broad control over the timbre and level of the instrument, while a five-way pickup selector switch is wired for a wide variety of tones with series, parallel, and split configurations.

Wizard-9 5-Piece Maple/Walnut Neck
This guitar sports a fast, flat, and slim five-piece maple/walnut neck.
Jatoba Fingerboard
Jatoba has a reddish-brown color, and produces a rich midrange with a crisp high end.
28" Scale Neck
The long-scale 28" neck offers clear articulation, long sustain, and opens up even more tonal possibilities with factory-set downtuning.
Quantum Pickups
The Quantum pickups provide accelerated bass response for fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing with crushing midrange and precise high-end articulation.
