Ibanez RG series (also known as the Roadstar Guitar series) is the most popular series of solid body electric guitars manufactured by Ibanez. It was introduced in 1987 and is being manufactured in different variations until now. Even now, 20 years after its initial presentation it remains one of the best-selling guitar models.
Unlike the S series, standard RG guitars have 24 frets and their body is a little bit thicker. Most of the RG guitar models have bolt-on necks. But some variations include neck-thru systems or have fixed bridges. Thanks to specific design of its neck it perfectly suits for shredding and for fast and virtuosic playing. That is why this guitar became one of the most popular guitars used in hard rock and metal music styles.
