Ibanez Iron Label
Built on the "chassis" of the famous RG models, the guitars of the Iron Label series were modded and tweaked with nothing but metal in mind. Ibanez took the legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard—fast and comfortable with added road-tested durability. Whether it's a 6, 7 or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG® pickups. Purposefully spartan, you won't find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead.

Best metal guitar everbjorn78 on 22.06.2018
I bought this guitar based on it's specs after my Gibson Les Paul Standard with EMGs from the 90s. I mostly play thrash and death metal.
I have to say this Ibanez is superior for that kind of music and for half the price.
The Gotoh locking tuners are superb quality and keeping the guitar in tune even with my 12-60 strings all times.
I didn't know the EMG 60 but I like it better than the 85 or 81 in neck position, it has this Dave Murray (Iron Maiden) feel. Very smooth and jumping out from the music in a band set up.
The bridge PU is EMG 81, amazing as always.
The guitar has this dark "growling" sound in low tuning (I'm tuned to C standard) probable due to ebony fret board and neck thru construction. It almost sounds like a 7 string or baritone guitar.
The only mark down goes for the nut: I think the factory setting is a bit high to any string gauges (with my heavy gauge strings 12-60 it was as about 0.9mm on the first fret. It should be around 0.3 or so.
The nut definitely needs some work after purchase. But after googling my issue I think this is true for almost all new Ibanez guitars.
