Retro Looks With Modern Playability

The Ibanez RC220 Roadcore features a modern asymmetrical double cutaway design with white binding to make a strong impression on stage. Its retro style is matched with modern hardware and specifications to enable a comfortable playing experience; perfect for musicians just starting on guitar or those seeking to add another quality instrument to their collection.

Mahogany Body & Maple Neck

The Roadcore RC220 features a solid mahogany body to provide a warm and biting tone, perfect for cutting through the mix and being heard with a band. The maple neck is topped with a treated New Zealand pine fingerboard giving a rare combination that will provide a comfortable playability and resonance. The double cutaway of the RC220's body allows for easy access to the top end of the neck; perfect for playing lead guitar solos.

Comfortable Playing Features

The neck of the RC220 features a rounded profile which sits nicely in the left hand. With a modern 240mm radius and medium frets, the fingerboard has the balance to allow for both comfortable chords and easy solo playing; especially when bending strings, where the radius will prevent strings from cutting out. The back of the neck is gloss-finished which gives a comfortable feel with a vintage appearance.

Strong Tones From Humbucking Pickups

Core Tone pickups are included on this guitar to provide solid rock tones without any hum or extraneous noise. They complement the mahogany body in giving authoritative sounds and are accessed via a 3-way toggle switch to provide different combinations of sound. A single volume and tone control means that this guitar is simple enough to use live and yet provide all the tonal options that you could require. The Sure Grip II knobs feature a nonslip functionality, ensuring smooth and precise control along with a classic aesthetic.

About Ibanez Guitars

Ibanez has been at the forefront of developing the right tools for electric guitar players who push at the boundaries of music-making. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination and consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments available. Although Ibanez has existed since 1908, it wasn't until the late '80s that it began to form its own identity when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using Ibanez guitars. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe, Ibanez is a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
