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 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.
This RGR5221 features a Macassar Ebony fretboard and Ashtop with an African Mahogany body. The RGR5221’s Super Wizard HP neck and the meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provide extra-smooth playing. The UK-made, hand-wound Bare Knuckles pickups are some of the most high-profile pickups being used by today’s professional metal guitarists. Bare Knuckles’ high output Brute Force pickups produce a deep, saturated tone that perfectly fits into the sound of current metal. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge promotes the optimal transfer of each string‘s vibration. The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability and cut down on string-changing time. A hard-shell case is included
These guitars are beyond the best and the RG5000 series will take you to a higher stage.
