RGD line was introduced some time ago to accommodate players who needed longer scales and lower tunings. RG was chosen as the base, as it was (and still is) the most popular line of electric guitars in the entire Ibanez catalog. 2017 NAMM has brought us only one RGD model, this one.
RGD7UCS builds on the base established by the successful RGD7UC. It kicks off with a solid and beveled basswood body and a five-piece maple/wenge neck. The neck sports fast and smooth Wizard profile, as well as recessed joint in the back. 24-fret ebony fingerboard (with 26-1/2" scale, jumbo frets w/prestige treatment, 1.89" nut) sits on its top.
Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups, Tight End R-7 bridge and Gotoh tuners complete this long-scale beast.

I bought this guitar from Zzounds.com and first thing I noticed when it arrived, it was completely out of tune. I wasn’t even sure what tuning it should be in, so I chose A. I figured maybe this was just from it traveling across the country. Anyways, overall first impressions.. just looking upon it when I opened the case I was impressed with the fit and finish. Everything looked sharp, clean and in order. The body is comfortable but sharp (be mindful of the edges and corners, lol). The neck reminded me of the comfortable playability of my old RG1527 I had a long time ago, in fact it was almost identical. The consistency of the Wizard Prestige necks is the best I’ve seen. First impressions plugging and playing... I have a Mesa 5:35 Mark V. I don’t know that it handled the low drop tuning and BKP Aftermath pickups when on the overdrive channel. I think this guitar needs a full stack for metal, but the clean channel was warm and clear. The clean tone on this thing impressed me more than the distorted sounds. However, this is a recording tool for me, so when ran thru my POD HD into my LA-610 Mk2 into my UA Apollo Twin onto my Logic X DAW... I found that low end metal sound I had been searching for. It’s very organic but with tight response. I’m still in a bit of regret over the price for a basswood guitar but I know Ibanez is good selecting quality tonewoods.
