The Ibanez RGA42FM is part of the Ibanez RGA series. The RGA42FM 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 mahogany 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. The RGA42FM has an active EQ switch which activates a mid-cut. What the Ibanez RGA42FM has over the Ibanez RGA42 is a Flamed Maple top.
