News of a brand new, limited edition lefty Ibanez found its way to my desk this afternoon. Would you like to know more? Of course you would…
Well! It’s an RGD, it’s from the Iron Label series, it has proper pickups, looks awesome, and most importantly, isn’t gloss black. Certainly ticks all of my boxes!
As ever, Ibanez has given it a super catchy name – the RGDIX6MPBL-SBB.
Left Handed Ibanez RGDIX6MPBL-SBB Iron Label Limited Edition
- Body : Layered Ash w/ Poplar Burl Top
- Neck : 3-Piece Nitro Wizard Maple/Bubinga
- Scale Length : 26.5″
- Fretboard : Birdseye Maple
- Frets : 24 Jumbo
- Bridge : Gibraltar Standard II
- Pickups : DiMarzio Fusion Edge Humbuckers
- Tuners : Gotoh MG-T Locking Tuners
- Finish : Surreal Blue Burst (SBB)
To me, this is a pretty exciting new offering from Ibanez, even if it is just a limited run model. It has been quite some time since there was a left handed Iron Label, and i’m pretty sure there has never been a lefty RGD.
This is something special, something that stands out from the rest.
I don’t have information on worldwide availability yet, but these will certainly be on offer within Europe. They are expected September/November 2016.
