Approach Light-Speed Shredding with this RG Prestige!The Ibanez RG Prestige series sets the bar remarkably high in the world of speed-demon guitars, with rich dark tone that cuts through well, and the unparalleled playability of Ibanez's Super Wizard High Performance neck. If you love rock or metal, and want to see just how fast you can push your lead playing skills, then this guitar is the one for you. Three DiMarzio pickups deliver dynamic tonal flexibility, and the sophisticated Edge double locking tremolo bridge keeps you in tune throughout your high bends and low dive-bombs.
An Eclectic Assemblage of Three DiMarzio PickupsYour RG655 Prestige comes with a nice combination of three different DiMarzio pickups. At the neck, you have a warm and clean Air Norton humbucker. There's a True Velvet single-coil in the middle -- with a bright cutting tone great for lead -- and a hot-sounding Tone Zone humbucker at the bridge. Along with your tone and volume knobs is a five-way pickup selector switch, for five different pickup combination settings to choose from -- perfect for heavier rock and metal guitarists looking for that full dark tone that also cuts through nicely for lead parts. The RG655's balanced basswood body only enhances the tones this trio of pickups has to offer.
Super Wizard HP NeckThe crowning jewel of the RG655 is the Super Wizard High Performance neck. This appendage is a resounding composite of five pieces of maple and walnut, glued together for solid stability, comfort and maximum playability. If you're looking for a tool to really start pushing your shredding skills to the max, you'll instantly take advantage of how smoothly your hammer-ons, pull-offs, arpeggios, and runs will stream seamlessly across this neck's comfortable 24 jumbo frets. You'll struggle to keep your fingers off of this axe's supremely inviting and addicting feel.
Secure Edge Bridge with Double-Locking TremoloAs you get used to playing at faster speeds, you'll notice how nicely your Prestige maintains its intonation -- thanks to the stable security of the flexible Edge bridge and its double-locking tremolo system. You'll be able to bend your strings to new heights and dive your lows lower than ever with your whammy bar -- without ever concerning yourself about losing intonation along the way. The Edge bridge also has fine tuners for each of your strings -- so making small adjustments is as convenient as could be.
