The Prestige series, including the Ibanez RG5121 Prestige are high quality guitars made in Japan with excellent craftsmanship, components, quality finishes and attention to detail.   These models are almost all built at the Fuji-Gen plant. 

The Ibanez RG5121 Prestige is a double cutaway RG body shape with an African mahogany body. Mahogany is a medium to heavy weight wood with a warm full tone with good sustain.

The five-piece maple and wenge neck used on the Ibanez RG5121 Prestige has the Super Wizard profile from Ibanez with a slim and super-fast playing feel. Stainless steel jumbo frets are great to play and make big bends and wide vibrato feel like butter.

The electronics of this guitar are driven by a set of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers, which are an active ceramic pickup. Fishman Fluence pickups use a new active core technology that doesn’t rely on copper wire winding like traditional humbuckers. This allows them to be free of the hum, noise and inductance issues that are common with even the most coveted wire wound pickups. This also allows them to have two separate voices for a wider tonal pallet. Voice one is an active ceramic tone with crisp searing crunch, tight bass with no muddiness and a growl. Voice two has a more passive ceramic feel with organic high output and excellent distortion characteristics, dynamics and response.

Other high-end features of the Ibanez RG5121 Prestige include Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads and Luminlay glow in the dark side dots. Locking machine heads add to the tuning stability and make string changes a breeze. The glow in the dark side dots sure make a difference on a darkly lit stage but just remember to charge them with standard light before the gig or practice as they won’t light up if they have been in a gig bag all day.

The Ibanez RG5121 Prestige is sold with its original molded Ibanez hardshell case.
