Product Description

The Ibanez 25th Anniversary RG sports a "best of" collection of features favored by RG fans. The RG was developed in the 80s as the Roadstar (RG stands for Roadstar Guitar) and it soon earned a reputation as a pedal-to-the-metal shred machine. Although there are RG players in a range of genres, the metal guitarist continues to be the die-hard RG player.

The Edge-Zero II Bridge makes tuning easier and faster as well as providing stable tuning for long performances with Zero Point System and stud lock function.

Features:

- RG3XXV has Maple fretboard and matching colored dot inlay.
- Slim, fast & ultra-comfort WIzard III neck grip.
- Industry leading Edge-Zero II bridge & ZPS3Fe, the ultimate in performance and tuning stability

The no-holds-barred metal influenced tone of the RG3XXV are courtesy of a DiMarzio(R) Air Norton-S(TM) in the neck position and a DiMarzio(R) D Activator(TM) in the bridge.

Edge-Zero II Tremolo

The Edge-Zero II, Ibanez's newest generation of knife edge tremolos, deploys all of the unique features of the ZR trem. Locking studs contribute to tuning stability. The Edge II Zero with the back plate removed. The system's performance and flexibility is based upon its spring/counter-spring design.

For the player who prefers the tremolo to snap hard to the zero point (as with a flutter effect) removal of the cross bar and counter-spring is quick and easy. Solidly anchoring each component is a major part of creating great sustain. These stud bolts contain inner set screws that expand the outer bolt, marrying bridge to body, thereby maximizing string vibration.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A mean guitar!"
Overall: First off I play 80' and 90's music mostly. I have always liked the RG series from Ibanez. This guitar has exceeded all of my expectations. Out of the box it required minimal setup as the action was a little high for my liking. This has the pickup configuration I like best with a humbucker and single and those re not easy to find. Out of the box it's a killer guitar and stunning in looks. The rare reverse headstock sets this RG apart. I got the Laser Blue and it is a beautiful finish without a flaw. After looking the guitar over for any defects which there were none it was time to plug in. I use a Fender Mustang V half stack and this is a great combination. The pickup produce a great sound for what I play but clean up nice as well. This thing growl so I cranked it up and was not displeased. I'm usually not a maple neck guy but this neck feels great. It is very smooth and feels almost natural without varnish. Frets are comfortable and every fret is easily accessible All electronics are solid and high quality. This is a pretty light guitar and perfect for what I play. It is a limited run and for the price you can't go wrong. I only buy from zzounds and didn't even need a price match as theirs was 200.00 cheaper than everywhere else. Do yourself a favor and grab one of these. You won't regret it because the high quality DOESN'T match the low price tag. I am 110% happy with this guitar and I will never get rid of it. I'm 110% happy with zzounds as always. Ibanez RG3XXV 25th Anniversary Guitar from zzounds for 499.00 from musicians helping musicians is a win win situation. I'm thinking about getting another in red.
Style of Music: Metal, Rock, 80' - 90s.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best Rg for the features!"
Overall: This features coil splits for neck and bridge. The neck split has a seriously amazing sound. With a Reverse headstock and very rare maple neck, this guitar truly is super limited. I have the candy red and am about to buy the laser blue. These guitars are very limited and soon you will not to be able to purchase a new one. The trem system is crazy easy to operate and even accepts a d-tuna with no modification other than initial installation. Also the pickups are really great sounding. I use dragonfire emg Duncan and various Texas type rails from fender in other guitars and these dimarzios really have a quality character all their own which colors the guitar and gives it an edge. Perfect clean tone that you would expect from an Ibanez and they react nicely to all types of gain from tube plex to full modern shred metal. The neck delivers a super comfortable position in all positions and combined with the perfect balance of a moderately high end Ibanez and you get effortless shred in all directions. It also cleans up easily as it is a maple. I really love this guitar and I have a bunch of 80s and 90s vintage RG and saber models including a handful of USA Custom Ibanez. This guitar is in my honest opinion light years ahead of the old USA customs. Due to the amount of new technology in this guitar regarding the trem. That zero point system has made me come back to floating systems after about a 15 year break from them due to just taking too much time to get set up and in tune. I honestly spent years with hard tail stop tail tunomatic types just because I hated dealing with screws and springs everytime I wanted it in flat or fatter gauged. This tremolo has put an end to that, that alone makes this new series of all Ibanez guitars worth it. The value I place on this guitar is unlimited. That's why I'm buying a 2nd one in blue. I've always wanted a reverse RG with maple with a coil in the neck and this one is it. My only problem with it is that there's only two colors, but that's fine I'll have them both. I wold really like a white one tho. Incidentally I also have js1200 and js2400 and while the js saber body style has a lot to offer I find my self picking this candy apple up more a lot nowadays. The js's both just sit there. I'm positive if satch got his hands on this guitar he'd put down the sabers as well.
