Ibanez RG421 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic RG performance
  • Fixed bridge stability for rock-solid tuning
  • Big tonal range
Classic RG performance

The Ibanez RG series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks to the effortless playability of its Wizard III neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and wild lead lines is effortless on this slim-profile neck. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love the feel and playability of the Ibanez's RG guitars. You will, too!

Fixed bridge stability for rock-solid tuning

The Ibanez RG421 sports a fixed bridge, which means no more tuning hassles due to a floating tremolo. From standard to lowered tunings your guitar's tuning will be more stable and the string tension will feel looser. When you change tunings at the gig they will be ready to go without messing with the tremolo or loosening locking nuts.

Big tonal range

With two Quantum humbucking pickups and 3-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like on the RG421. Although it will forever be known as a rock guitar, the RG421's fast playability and tonal variety make it a great guitar for almost any style.

Ibanez RG421 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Ibanez RG playability and looks at a value-packed price
  • Fast 3-piece maple Wizard III neck lets you set your own shredding speed limit
  • Dual Quantum humbucking pickups give you a wide tonal range to play with
  • Fixed bridge gives you top-notch tuning stability
  • An iconic rock guitar, but with playability that's perfect for blues and jazz too
Rock like you mean it, with the Ibanez RG421!

Ibanez RG421 - Blackberry Sunburst

I recently purchased the Ibanez RG421 from Sweetwater Music and I have to say this is one of the best values around for an inexpensive solid body electric guitar. I received the guitar the day after ordering it from the great staff at Sweetwater. The guitar right out of the box just needed some minor adjustment (lowering of the action) and then it played great. After a couple of days of playing the RG421 I quickly realized the need for a hardshell case to house this beauty, because this one is a keeper, regardless of its low cost. It stays in tune, is easy to play, is lightweight, and sounds very nice, although I may consider changing out the Bridge pickup for an Alnico. Definitely a great value for $299. The Mahogany body offers a slightly warmer tone than what you might expect from an RG, and with the Rosewood Fretboard on a Maple neck you get a great combination of Tone Woods. I Highly Recommend.
