Here's what Ibanez says about the RG5170G-SVF Prestige:
The Prestige series represents the combination of cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and old-world Japanese craftsmanship. 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 the 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.
The RG5170G-SVF has a superb appearance thanks to the combination of the Silver Flat finish, white pearloid bindings and gold hardware. This RG5170G features a Macassar Ebony fretboard. The RG5170G’s Super Wizard HP neck and the meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provide extra-smooth playing.
The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker and Single-Width are some of the most exciting and talked-about pickups in today’s metal scene. The pickups provide an aggressive tone and powerful attack without the noise. The Voicing switch allows the pickups to have a modern, active high-output sound or a crisp, clean and fluid sound.
The Lo-Pro Edge bridge offers maximum playing comfort due to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. A hard-shell case is included. These guitars are beyond the best and the RG5000 series will take you to a higher stage.
