Description: 

The Ibanez RGA42 is part of the Ibanez RGA series. The RGA42 was introduced in 2009 and is one of the first non-prestige RGA models which are made in Indonesia. The Ibanez RGA42 features an Ibanez Gibraltar Standard bridge a black mahogany bound body, a 3 piece maple bound neck and Ibanez LoZ active pickups. Later in 2011 a new set of active humbucker pickups Ibanez CAP LZ10/20 were introduced and Ibanez changed the Wizard II neck to a Wizard III neck.
