The Ibanez RG is a true icon of the guitar world! Riding the superstrat craze of the 80s, Ibanez released their RG550. This packed features that metal guitarists wanted: chiefly comprising a fast neck, comfortable body, powerful pickups and a reliable tremolo. The RG550 spawned the rest of the RG series, which consequently became some of the best-selling hard rock/heavy metal guitars ever made.
The Ibanez RG was conceived in 1987, the same year as Steve Vai’s signature JEM 777. Ibanez designed the RG for high-performance, returning the power to the hands of the player. It has a very low-profile neck with a flat, wide fretboard. This is ideal for fast, comfortable playing. Whether you’re chugging out rhythm parts or putting down a sizzling solo, your fingers will fly over an Ibanez RG fingerboard.
Ibanez RG guitars are typically configured as HSH with a 5-way pickup selector. This gives you optimal versatility over your tone. Whether you need smooth clean tones or searingly hot high gain, you will find it on the RG. The bridge is an Ibanez in-house design, and makes significant improvements over the original Floyd Rose. The Ibanez Edge tremolo includes an increased mass and relocated fine tuners.
The Standard RG550 is a rock-solid riff machine. Three decades of metal have made this into the high-performance brute that it is today. Made in Japan, these are some of the finest guitars you can get for the money.
This version of the RG550 sets the standard by which other superstrats are judged. Available in some eye-catching colours, incredible pickup tones, coveted Super Wizard 5-piece neck, reliable and stable tremolo… the list goes on!
The RG2550Z takes the stunning RG550 chassis and pimps it out with top components! Looking every bit the part with a metallic white finish, chrome hardware and a shiny pickguard.
In essence, this guitar offers all the bells and whistles. If you love the look and sound of the Ibanez RG, the RG2550Z unleashes the beast to its full potential! Sooner or later, many RG players will often end up upgrading to DiMarzios anyway, and the Wizard HP neck is one of the fastest available on any guitar today. Dial your playing up to “full-shred” with the Prestige model from Ibanez.
