The Ibanez Prestige series combines cutting-edge manufacturing techniques with world-renowned Japanese craftsmanship and precision. Bolstering this acclaimed lineup is the top-of-the-range 5000 series RG5121-BCF, a high-performance electric guitar that takes the iconic Ibanez RG formula into the future!
With an incredible feature-set comprising Fishman Fluence pickups, stainless steel frets, Gotoh locking tuners and a 'Super Wizard' neck — the Ibanez RG5121-BCF lets you break new boundaries in speed, technique and tone.
Ibanez's flagship RG model has always been regarded as a premium guitar built solely for shredders. The RG5121-BCF perfectly fits that mould, sporting a gorgeous African Mahogany body that promises piano-like sustain and a rich mid-range character, of which boasts deep cutaways that allow for effortless access to all 24 frets. A heavily-contoured belly-cut lets the instrument rest snugly against you in practice and playing positions too.
Super Wizard Neck
The RG5121-BCF's bolt-on 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck gives the guitar rigidity and a snappy note response with plenty of top-end articulation — perfect for complex riffs or solos that need to cut through in a mix! The superbly-thin 'Super Wizard' HP neck shape makes fast passages a breeze to play too, especially with the ultra-smooth Prestige fret edge treatment, while the luxurious Macassar Ebony fingerboard comes fitted with wide/tall jumbo frets that offer you maximum control under the fingers.
Fishman Fluence Modern Pickups
This elegant instrument is powered by a pair of high-output Fishman Fluence Modern Ceramic humbuckers. Capable of handling copious amounts of gain, these popular pickups provide an aggressive tone and a powerful attack without excess noise. But they're far from being one-trick ponies. That’s because these versatile pickups can dish out crisp and luscious tones with clean settings, especially when you use the voicing switch to change from a potent contemporary sound to a softer and more fluid timbre.
Ibanez has kitted out its 5000 series RG with only the finest hardware appointments, to guarantee decades of reliable use and stellar playability. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge follows a no-nonsense fixed design, which ensures optimal transfer of each string's vibrations for maximum resonance, while its smoothly-machined exterior gives your picking hand a pleasant surface to rest on.
The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stabillity, and significantly cuts down string-changing time so that you can spend more time playing!
