With its lightning-fast 11-piece Wizard neck and stunning poplar burl top, the Ibanez RG1121PB is a showstopping speed demon. An American basswood body provides a balanced tone, and a gorgeous ebony fretboard—punctuated with striking mother-of-pearl inlays and Jescar EVO gold frets—sings out with lively projection and miles of sustain. The Ibanez RG1121PB's twin DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers are voiced for shredders, brimming with aggression and ready to howl. Tone shapers at Sweetwater delight in the dyna-MIX 10 switching system, which offers extensive control over the sound of this formidable axe. All this adds up to a solidbody electric that's a rock 'n' rolling, metal-making machine. 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 11-piece maple/walnut/purpleheart neck. Switching between aggressive rhythm playing and fluid lead lines is effortless on this slim-profile neck.
The Ibanez RG1121PB features Ibanez's mono-rail bridge, which uses a single bridge piece for each individual string. This provides tighter component coupling and improves the transfer of string vibrations to the tonewood for a purer, more resonant sound. Additionally, it prevents the vibration of strings from impacting each other, which can increase articulation. With two DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbucking pickups and 3-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like on the RG1121PB. With its aggressive visuals and high output, it will forever be known as a rock guitar. However, the RG1121PB's fast playability and tonal variety make it a great instrument for almost any style. Beyond that, the RG1121PB switching system provides 6 different pickup combinations via a mini-toggle and 3-way switch switch. Whatever tone you're hearing in your head, the RG1121PB can achieve it.
