The RG Fixed series brings you the world’s premier metal axe, with the simplicity and sustain of a Gibraltar Standard bridge. These RG Fixed models can take and dish out whatever vicious pounding they get, and are as stable as a rock. RG Fixed models represent the answer to many players' desires: the in-your-face sound of an RG without the double-locking hassle.

  • IBZ-8 pickups feature deep and warm tone, but not muddy even in down tuning.
  • 1 Volume, 1 Tone, and 3-way switch
  • Extra long scale 27" neck offers clear articulation, long sustain, and opens up even more tonal possibilities with factory-set down tuning. (1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, 8F)
  • Gibraltar Standard bridge offers smooth playing comfort and maximum string vibration transfer
  • Through-body stringing increases sustain

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
