SKU: RG550-RF

    Product Description

    The Ibanez RG is a modern classic, with its sharp and elegant aesthetics catching the eyes of many hard rockers and metallers since as far back as the late 80s. The Genesis Collection RG550 harkens back to that golden era, with its super-versatile H/S/H pickup configuration, Edge double-locking tremolo system and its vibrant colour scheme.

    Construction

    The RG has always been a premium instrument built purely for performance. With a lightweight Basswood body, you won't feel strain on your back or shoulders when playing long sets live, and you can expect a full-bodied sound thanks to the wood's balanced tonal qualities.

    A bolt-on 5pc Maple/Walnut neck will provide a snappy response with plenty of mid-range projection, perfect for complex riffs or solos that need loads of cut in frantic mixes. The notoriously thin Super Wizard neck profile will make fast passages a breeze to play; fitted with jumbo frets to offer you maximum playability up and down the fretboard.

    Electronics and Hardware

    Ibanez's V7 and V8 humbuckers (in the neck and bridge positions respectively) will handle high doses of gain without any issues. Giving you lots of saturation and top-end clarity, these are perfect for heavier genres of music. The S1 single-coil in the middle position however will let you attain S-style tones when used on its own, ideal for playing clean chords or arpeggios with.

    A double-locking Edge tremolo system offers incredible tuning stability, no matter how extreme your divebombs or flutters might be. With all hardware appointments finished in black, this super-sleek looking guitar will inspire you to just pick it up and shred!

    Mr Trevor Wilson4th Jul 2020

    The guitar is incredible! It arrived with quite high action. After adjusting the bridge, everything was perfect. Total shred machine! I wish Ibanez supplied their guitars with extra springs like PRS does, I popped an extra spring in the back of this baby and now the floating trem Is more stable during bends

    Amazing fit and finish, well set up and ready to play straight out of the box unlike some guitar manufacturers. The colour is pretty eyewatering and maybe not for everybody, very 80s!

    Mr. Simon Dickenson27th Apr 2019

    This is a lot of guitar for the money. I own an original 1988 Japanese made Saber and this feels like the better made machine. One tiny negative... the bridge needed a tiny tweak out of the box to keep it in tune (a quarter turn of the mounting screws but didn’t need to remove the backplate to reach them). In the last week I have played the guitar every day and it’s not needed tuning since. I am a heavy term user so this is no mean feat. However, that is the only thing bad I have to say about it. The neck is a major improvement over the original. The satin finish makes it much easier to play and this neck is possibly a little wider than the original. Much is written on line about changing the pickups but I find the stock ones have a unique tone. The V8 in the bridge is particularly rich in harmonics and the middle position S1 is superb for ‘that’ clean tone. Everything else about seems top drawer. I’ve not gigged it yet but i Am looking forward to playing it at volume. Oh and it is MUCH more red in real life then any of the pictures show. It’s essentially neon red so if you are looking for that 80s vibe then this is all you need. Perhaps neon yellow knobs and neon green pickups to really get you there!
