Here's what Ibanez say
Designed to Inspire", all Ibanez Premium series are manufactured with select tone woods, high-profile electronics, hardware and dedicated skills of craftsmanship and care in details for your musical journey. The richness of sound, stunning appearance and unrivalled playability of the Ibanez Premium series will open the gate of your reservoir of inspiration.
One of the representative Premium models, RG6P17LTD, comes with a range of distinctive features that will inspire any guitarist.
It features a stunning Curly Maple body top with beautiful natural binding on the top and side. An 11-piece Wizard neck, which features a slim grip shape made of Wenge, Bubinga, Maple, and Purpleheart, contributes to the neck’s extreme rigidity and increases sustain.
A Curly Maple fretboard expresses an exotic atmosphere and comes with stainless frets. The stainless frets are known for their bright tone, and they add player-friendly features, such as long durability and a smoothness to bend on. It has luminescent side dot position marks to make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages. The DiMarzio® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch. This model adopts Belden wiring material and copper shielding inside its control cavity, so noiseless sound can be expected.
Furthermore, this model features an Edge-Zero II tremolo bridge and provides exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment, and playing comfort. The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time. A soft case is included.
