Guitar Interactive Issue 18 features three formidable artists with Shrapnel Records Legend Greg Howe gracing the front cover plus Jazz Guitar genius Mike Stern and LA Session Ace Carl Verheyen also inside. Not only that, but Tom Quayle brings you an exclusive Greg Howe Masterclass Technique Lesson with free TAB.
Ibanez describes the RG series as ‘the most recognizable and distinctive guitar’
in its range and it has appeared in a dizzying array of versions since its inception.
For 2013, Ibanez has updated the RGs with new finishes and options. But does the
magic remain? Tom Quayle conjures-up a verdict…
We’ve reviewed Ibanez’s Premium guitars before in GI and have been consistently impressed
with the output from the Indonesian factory where these instruments are produced. The latest
2013 Premium RGs are basically visual updates to the existing range, allowing Ibanez to refresh
the line without adding too many new features into this already well-respected design.
