This is one of those guitars you pick up and feel the quality right away. This is the top of the line in a series where Ibanez was aiming for innovation and quality. The Super-Tap 6 pickups sound great, like a fuller sounding single-coil and you can toggle between hot and more conventional with the Super Tap switch.

Here some more info from the original Roadster Series brochure:

Accu-Cast Bridge Tailpiece: The weak point of many guitars of this type has been flimsy stamped bridge parts. The Roadster features a new Ibanez design, the precision Accu-Cast bridge. This bridge tailpiece features a united sustain block and through-the-body string loading. Each bridge instert is individually adjustable for both height and intonation length.

Quadra-Lock Four-Bolt Neck Mount: A traditionally weak point of many instruments of this construction is the neck body joint. Some companies use only three screws to make this important connection, but Ibanez uses four machine bolts mated to threaded inserts embedded in the neck.

Super-Tap 6 Pickups: Single coil pickups have often been criticized as being thin and weak sounding. The criticism ends with Ibanez Super-Tap 6 pickups. The Super-Tap 6 is featured on the RS-300. This versatile pickup can be cut back in output to slightly more than conventional types with the Super-Tap Switch. Both Super 6 and Super-Tap 6 pickups are shielded with non-inductive copper tape shielding.

At the top of the Roadster line, the RS-300 embodies everything a guitar of this type should be. The solid ash body gives the instrument solidity and honest weight. The one-piece maple neck is rigidly mounted with the exclusive Quadra-Lock System. Super-Tap 6 pickups are controlled by a mini-toggle switch for either hot or mild output.
