Ibanez Wizard necks are thin and built for speed, and they enable effortless playability and comfort. The RGR652AHBF RG Prestige takes that design to the next level with its 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard HP neck. You'll execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with ease. Capping the Super Wizard neck is a bound 24-fret maple fretboard loaded with jumbo frets that are perfect for big note bends.
While you may expect to see a vibrato tailpiece on an Ibanez RG, the RGR652AHBF sports a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge — a dream come true if you prefer a hardtail axe. Music Experience guitarists love the Gibraltar Standard II's extreme low profile, which offers the comfort of a traditional RG floating trem with the exceptional stability and reliability you can only get from a fixed bridge. If you've always wanted an RG-series guitar but prefer not to mess with a floating bridge, the RGR652AHBF was made just for you.
The Fusion Edge humbucking pickups on the RGR652AHBF are the result of a collaboration between Ibanez and noted pickup maker DiMarzio. Designed for down-tuned metal, Fusion Edge pickups deliver a powerful scooped sound with tight, compressed bass response and crisp high-end articulation — ideal for bludgeoning djent chugs and high-speed staccato riffing. The RGR652AHBF's DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups give you the aggressive yet precise tone that modern metal guitarists need.
The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
The neck for shredders - 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th
The Gibraltar Standard II is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar's body and provide optimal transfer of each string's vibration. Smooth surface is designed to maximize playing comfort.
Through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio®-Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range.
