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 Pickups

Your 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 Neck

The 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 Tremolo

As 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.

Features:

- Balanced basswood RG body
- Five-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard High Performance neck
- Rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
- An Air Norton humbucker at the neck, a True Velvet single-coil in the middle, and a Tone Zone humbucker at the bridge
- Secure Edge bridge with double locking tremolo system and fine tuners
- One volume and tone knob
- Five-way pickup selector switch
- Hardshell case included

See just how metal your sound can get when you plug in your Ibanez RG655 Prestige for the first time.

Ibanez RG655 Prestige Electric Guitar

A prominent feature of the Ibanez RG655 is the exclusive Super Wizard High-Performance neck -- constructed of five, glued, solid pieces of maple/walnut for absolute rock solid stability. The DiMarzio Air Norton (neck), True Velvet (middle), and Tone Zone (bridge) pickups, along with 5-way switch, were chosen for the inspiring way they complement each other to create a wide pallet of tonal options that add fire, yet retain clarity, and improve sustain. With the classic Edge bridge: the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed with confidence that the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning.

As the crown jewel of Ibanez, the Prestige line represents the passion and pride of Japanese luthiery. These guitars, produced exclusively in Japan, have earned worldwide acclaim and respect throughout the industry for their craftsmanship, quality, and innovation. Combine this with the classic Ibanez RG design and you have an instrument that truly represents a cornerstone of the Ibanez legacy.

"Outstanding Product"
Overall: This guitar is a rockers guitar. We play stuff from southern rock to God Smack and this guitar is perfect for this style of music. What I really love about this guitar is that I don't have long fingers and the neck is skinning. The feel of the guitar in my hands is butter. This is a Shredders guitar. Really good purchase. This is not the first item I've purchased from zZounds and I continue to be pleased with the cost and service I receive from zZounds.

"Player"
Overall: This guitar is quite the player, setup out of the box but through 10s on it anyway. Extremely Versatile, the dimarzios through my AC30HW is absolutely perfect tone. Really responds well to rolling back the volume and tone. The edge bridge is absolutely incredible at achieving that flutter and returning back to zero point. Ease of use I gave a 3 because it is a bit different than the Floyd rose or edge zero so it took bit to get it just right.Otherwise my dream guitar with an excellent build quality.
