The RG5170G is loaded with a Lo-Pro Edge tremolo bridge that stays out of your way and won't catch your hand. You'll be able to pull off palm muting in total comfort and dive-bomb to your heart's content. With this much tonal diversity under the hood, the Ibanez Prestige RG5170G will become your number one axe in no time.

Fishman Fluence Modern pickups

The Fishman Fluence Modern pickups in the Prestige RG5170G deliver some of the most sought-after tones on the market. The HSH configuration offers an immense range of modern and high-output voices to choose from. If you haven't heard Fishman Fluence pickups before, you're in for a treat. Unlike their wire-wound brethren, Fluence pickups manage to serve up a massive tone arsenal without noise or inductance issues. On top of that, Fishman Fluence Modern pickups provide you with your choice of two distinctly different voices for each pickup. You can change the voicing via the push-pull volume knob.

Ultra-playable Super Wizard HP neck

Players who have a need for speed have gravitated to the Wizard neck profile since it was introduced in the ’80s. Throughout its many incarnations, the Wizard neck was built for speed, and speed alone. This Prestige RG5320 is fitted with the Super Wizard HP neck. This 5-piece maple/wenge neck is incredibly thin, putting a scant 19mm of wood in your hand at the 12th fret. Complete with 24 jumbo stainless steel frets and Ibanez's Prestige fret edge treatment. This neck showcases effortless playability and comfort. For high-octane playing, there's no comparison to the Super Wizard HP neck.

Palm muting never felt so good with the Lo-Pro Edge tremolo

Whether you palm mute with precision or simply have a wild strumming style, few things are worse than getting hung up on your bridge during a furious performance. Guitar players at Music Experience all agree the Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge bridge gets out of the way of your playing while still serving up maximum expression and tuning stability. You'll barely know it's there, thanks to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. And thanks to the locking studs, you'll enjoy additional tuning stability.
