The creation of musical tools that inspire is part of the Ibanez mission. The 9-string may appear at first to be novelty designed for the ridiculously ambitious, but what surprises first-time players is the comfort and immediate playability of the Ibanez approach.
Ibanez isn't the first to put an extra string or two on an electric guitar. They are, however, the first to make the concept really work. Just as the Ibanez thin, fast, ultra-playable Wizard neck seemed to defy physics when first introduced, Ibanez 7, 8 and 9-string guitars necks utilize similar innovative technology. And what about down-tuning? Extended necks? Extra heavy string thicknesses? Ibanez didn't just address those challenges... they mastered them.
The RG is a precision instrument and is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. The RG9QM features a basswood body with a stunning quilted maple top along with a fast, flat and slim 5pc Maple/Bubinga neck. The extra long scale 28" neck offers clear articulation, long sustain, and opens up even more tonal possibilities with factory-set down tuning. (1E, 2B, 3G, 4D, 5A, 6E, 7B, 8F#, 9C#). The Gibraltar Standard-9 bridge is fixed to the body delivering optimal string transference for improved sustain and tone.
The RG9QM delivers an inspiring palette of tones with its five-way switching system and Ibanez QM-9 humbuckers. The QM-9 pickups deliver clarity ideal for lightning fast arpeggios and tapping. The QM-9's are passive pickups that don't have the output of active pickups... but with notes this low, you don't need a lot of gain to sound heavy.
