The pickups on the Ibanez RG421HPAM are different and complement each other to create a rich and versatile palette of tones. The neck pickup is a DiMarzio® Air Norton™ humbucker, passive, in alnico, and the bridge pickup is another DiMarzio® humbucker, in this case a The Tone Zone®, also passive and in alnico.
Pickups are activated and selected with a five-position selector. The uppermost neck position selects the neck pickup only. When the selector is between the neck and center position, the neck humbucker is activated and is in parallel. In the center position, the neck and bridge pickups are selected. Between the center position and the bridge position, the neck pickup's bridge side and the bridge pickup's neck side are selected. When in the bridge position, the selector activates the bridge pickup.
These combinations make the Ibanez RG421HPAM a perfect electric guitar for guitarists who play multiple styles and want to have multiple tonal options in one instrument.
