This RG450DX features a mahogany body with a one-piece maple Wizard III neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez Quantum pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a standard double locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.
For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba.
The RG450DXBL is a left-handed version. Similar models are the RG450DXB (black hardware and white finish) and the RG450EX (black pickguard and white dot fingerboard inlays). The Steve Vai signatureJEMJR is essentially the same guitar with some additional body routing and different fretboard inlays.
