(john Gorbe | Posted 2011-03-16)
Since the mid-80’s Ibanez has produced variations on the popular RG design. It was at this time that instrumental rock was leaving its footprint on the music industry with guitarists Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Paul Gilbert.
Now Ibanez has partnered with the Atticus Metal Tour to give you the chance to win an RG321EBK. No purchase necessary to enter or win this contest. Visit http://www.ibanez.com/atticus for more details.
The RG321 EBK belongs to the “RG Fixed” series. This series brings you the world’s premier metal axe, with the simplicity and sustain of a Gibraltar Standard bridge. These RG Fixed models can take and dish out whatever vicious pounding they get, and are as stable as a rock. RG Fixed models represent the answer to many players' desires: the in-your-face sound of an RG without the double-locking hassle.
The RG321EBK features a Mahogany body, bound Rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets, Wizard III neck, Gibraltar Standard Bridge, an EMG H4A neck pickup, and EMG H4 bridge pickup.
Ibanez beganin in 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya, Japan. Forty-five years ago Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. In the mid-60’s Hoshino purchased the rights to the Ibanez name and began shipping incredibly funky-looking guitars to the United States. Roughly thirty years ago Hoshino opened an office in Bensalem, Pa for more efficient distribution of guitars in the United States. At this time, American-made instruments were having quality issues and Ibanez copied every guitar that was available to compete with this decline in quality.
By 1976 the Ibanez copy era came to an end after they were sued, and the originality of Ibanez began to shine. Many artists have found their voice on these instruments including Pat Metheny, John Scofield, George Benson, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Munky (Korn), Andy Timmons, Tony MacAlpine, and Norman Brown just to name a few.
