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. Another feature that came in 2011 were the new scooped cuts on the body horns. What the Ibanez RGA42 has over the Ibanez RGA32 is an active EQ switch which activates a mid-cut.
