This Baritone Has Incredibly Aggressive Tone

When you're seeking a heavier, more aggressive guitar tone, a baritone guitar often does the trick. When you're looking for pure tonal hostility, pick up the Ibanez RGIB6 baritone electric guitar. Its 28" scale length serves up incredibly powerful fundamental tones, and it's equipped with a pair of EMG active humbuckers to hit your amplifier with plenty of bite too. And you can even pull off awesome stutter effects whenever you please, thanks to the built-in killswitch. Ask any guitarist at Sweetwater and they'll confirm that the Ibanez RGIB6 is a simple solution for incredibly heavy, aggressive tone.

  • RG playability, with fixed-bridge stability
  • Active EMGs onboard, for serious tone
Your fingers will fly on this super-fast Nitro Wizard neck

One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the Nitro Wizard neck on the RGIB6 Iron Label is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords. From the first time wrap your hand around the RGIB6's Nitro Wizard neck, you'll know you've got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

RG playability, with fixed-bridge stability

While you may expect to see a vibrato tailpiece on an Ibanez RG, the RGIB6 Iron Label sports a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge - a dream come true if you prefer a hardtail axe. The Gibraltar has an ultra-low profile to give you the comfort of a traditional RG floating trem, with the exceptional stability and reliability you can only get from a fixed bridge. If you've always wanted an RG-series guitar, but prefer not to mess with a floating bridge, the RGIB6 was made just for you.

Active EMGs onboard, for serious tone

The Ibanez RGIB6 Iron Label is fitted with a pair of hot active humbuckers - an EMG 60 in the neck position and an EMG 81 at the bridge, a classic combo. There's a reason top metal guitarists use active pickups: they rock. Hard. The '81 has become a first-call lead pickup choice for some of the most respected metal guitarists of all time, while the '60 provides the perfect tonal compliment. Stirred with a 5-way blade and poured through volume and tone pots, this heady brew is a veritable tonefest that gives you everything from chimey cleans to searing hot shred - and all points in between.

Ibanez RGIB6 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Baritone guitar with the comfortable, resonant basswood RG body
  • Fast and smooth Nitro Wizard neck with bound rosewood fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets
  • Precise, aggressive tone from EMG 808 active humbuckers
  • Extra creative potential from the built-in Killswitch for stutter effects
  • Impressive sustain and precise intonation from the Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge
Go forth and shred, with the Ibanez RGIB6 Iron Label!

Instant favorite

This guitar plays and sounds amazing! The original 81/85s that it comes with bring this behemoth to life. Thick clear tone, great feeling neck! The fact that it's a baritone means that the strings will have a tighter feel, so when you are doing palm muted chugs it doesn't feel like you are playing notes on wet spaggehti. They feel very satisfying underneath your pick and your fretting fingers. The larger scale takes some getting used to, but after you do get used to it, you will never want to play a regular guitar again.
4.5/5

I bought this instrument December of 2015, and has quickly become my favorite to playI have earni ball baritone strings on it and installed 2 lace dethbuckler pickups. I use it mostly in B standard.this guitar is brutal, in multiple ways. the neck is very comfortable when your over the learning curve of a slightly larger instrument and the baritone strings really have a full sound, it really projects.I've been playing metal guitar for the better half of my life, if you want a baritone and play heavier music, this is what you want
