The Ibanez RG is a modern classic, with its sharp and elegant looks catching the eyes of many hard rockers and metallers since as far back as the late 80s.
The RG652AHM-NGB is a stunning take on this now iconic design. With a pair of super-versatile DiMarzio pickups, Edge double-locking tremolo system and finished in a gorgeous Nebula Green Burst, this is an instrument for the pros.
The RG has always been a stellar instrument built purely for performance. With a lightweight Ash 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 an awesome feel that will allow brilliant note control. With the Prestige fret edge treatment, your left hand can glide up and down the fretboard super-smoothly.
Electronics and Hardware
A premium instrument should be fitted with premium parts, and Ibanez have done just that. With DiMarzio pickups, you can expect optimal tones and power. The notorious Air Norton and Tone Zone humbucker combination (in the neck and bridge positions respectively) is incredibly versatile, handling high doses of gain for heavier styles whilst also sounding clear and vibrant with clean settings.
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 Cosmo black, this super-sleek looking guitar will inspire you to just pick it up and play!
