New 2015 Ibanez RG421EXL

Winter NAMM is almost upon is once again, and brand new guitars are already appearing.  Ibanez recently announced their 2015 line-up, but unfortunately it’s slim pickings when it comes to new left handed models i’m afraid.

Ibanez are well known for being very keen on affordable, gloss black models when it comes to southpaw guitars.  But you’ll be glad to hear that the new RG421EXL deviates wildly from this design plan in that is has a flat black finish rather than gloss! Sarcasm aside…it is a pretty good looking guitar!

Ibanez RG421EXL-BKF Left Handed Guitar

Ibanez RG421EXL Left Handed Guitar

  • Wizard III Maple neck
  • Mahogany body
  • Bound Rosewood fretboard w/White dot inlay
  • Jumbo frets
  • Quantum (H) neck pickup
  • Quantum (H) bridge pickup
  • Fixed bridge
  • Black hardware

The thing to keep in mind with Ibanez is that even though this is the sole left handed 2015 addition, there will be more in the form of limited edition models over the course of the year. Although the standard southpaw range tends to be quite tame, the limited edition models that crop up can really get us hot under the collar.  So keep your eyes peeled!

    Is it that hard to make a 6 string lefty baritone? I’m tired of looking for it for years. I know Schecter has a few models but their “lovely” distributor in Turkey doesn^^t even think about selling them.

    I know this is a 6 string, but is it me or is anyone else annoyed that Ibanez does such short time runs for 7 and 8 strings for lefties, I mean come on, just bring back the RG7321L and give us just a little more colors.

    Do you think these will only be available in the UK? I asked a company called Andertons and they said this would arrive by the end of april. I don’t really have a problem buying from an overseas country but was just wondering.

        It certainly hasn’t appeared on the USA site, but you never know with Ibanez. Drop them an email on their contact form

        Keep in mind that if you order from the UK the final price will end up being quite a lot higher and may end up not being worth the hassle. Prices over here are usually much higher than in the States, then you’ve got international shipping plus import taxes.
