Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The made-in-Japan Prestige series from Ibanez are wonderful high quality guitars with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. This offering in the double cutaway RG body style has a classy understated elegance with its open pore black finish and white body binding. The finish is smooth and you can see the grain lines from the Ash body and feel the wood instead of the glassy high gloss finish found on so many guitars. The ash body provides a lighter weight and tonally it has a great balance of brightness and warmth with lots of pop! This is the same body wood used on many of the revered 50’s Fender guitars.

The Ibanez RGR652AHBF RG Prestige electric guitar also features a cool reverse headstock with Gotoh locking tuners for excellent tuning stability. The 5 piece maple and walnut neck is the Super Wizard profile from Ibanez with is slim and super-fast. The jumbo frets feel great to play and make big bends and wide vibrato a breeze.

The pickups are Dimarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers which are a passive ceramic style so they have lots of gain but are also very dynamic. The five way toggle switch provides full humbucker, single coil and parallel connected humbucker options for a wide variety of sounds.

Comes with a molded Ibanez hardshell case.

Ibanez RGR652AHBF RG Prestige Features:

  • Super Wizard HP Neck: The neck for shredders; 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th.
  • Gibraltar Standard II Bridge: The Gibraltar Standard II is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar’s body and provide optimal transfer of each string’s vibration. Smooth surface is designed to maximize playing comfort.
