We've added some new and exciting tweaks to the RG5000s to attract the modern-day players who are always trying something new. Develop your range, tone and technique with these high performance Prestige guitars.

To create guitars that are beyond the best, Ibanez carefully developed modern specifications. The RG5000s feature Stainless Steel frets for a bright tone, long durability and smoothness, a rigid 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck; a beautiful wood grain fretboard, Made-in-Japan Luminlay side dots and the most cutting-edge pickups.

This RGR5221 features a Macassar Ebony fretboard and Ashtop with African Mahogany body. The RGR5221's Super Wizard HP neck and the meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provide extra-smooth playing. The UK-made, handwound Bare Knuckles pickups are some of the most high-profile pickups being used by today's professional metal guitarists. Bare Knuckles' high output Brute Force pickups produce a deep, saturated tone which perfectly fits into the sound of current metal. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge promotes the optimal transfer of each string's vibration. The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability and cut down on string-changing time. A hard-shell case is included.
