Incredibly fast Super Wizard HP neck

The Ibanez Wizard necks are thin, built-for-speed creations that enable effortless playability and comfort. The RG652KFX Prestige takes that design to the next level with its Super Wizard HP neck. You'll execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with ease. Capping the Super Wizard neck is a 24-fret rosewood fretboard, loaded with jumbo frets that are perfect for big note bends.

Gibraltar Standard II bridge delivers sustain and rock-solid tuning

To give the RG652KFX Prestige increased stability and sustain, Ibanez turned to their time-tested Gibraltar Standard II bridge. This simple fixed bridge design anchors to the body, providing excellent string-to-body transfer. It also features a super-low profile and a smooth surface, giving your picking hand an optimal degree of clearance for speed picking techniques. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love this bridge, and we're confident that you will too.

Sweet Guitar

love the Guitar. Simple to the point. Great rock guitar. Solid feel, with good sustain. Pretty flat radius neck and thin. Finish is nice and the wood grain is beautiful. The Dimarzio pickups are hot and geared for rock/metal. The 5 way with the parallel and split coil combo gives an opportunity for bluesy/jazzy feel on cleaner channels. I will say the tone is a little on the trebley/thin, not as fat/full as I had hope. Overall very satisfied with this guitar. Sweetwater was awesome with purchase, and shipping.
4/5

Excellent guitar

Overall a well-made guitar. I'm very satisfied with the sound and feel of this Ibanez and the amount of the craftsmanship put into it. The neck feels absolutely amazing with how wide and thin it is. Very smooth and easy to play and exceptionally comfortable. The DiMarzio pickups sound great and compliment this guitar very well. This guitar is definitely not a one trick pony, it is capable of just about whatever you throw at it from metal to fantastic clean tones and everything inbetween. The one major downside of this guitar and the only reason I haven't given it a 5 star rating is the "Cosmo Black" hardware. After only a week the finish began to wear off on the bridge which is something I never would have expected on a guitar of this price.

Great guitar

This is a fantastic player! The neck is ridiculously fast...I can play things I couldn't before with this. Volume and tone pots are smooth and I love the bridge! It's nice and light weight and looks fantastic! Overall, I'm very pleased, but I do have a few complaints. First off, as great as this is, I feel it's about $200 overpriced. Second, I was not a big fan of the Tone Zone...it has this nasally mid quality to it that didn't suit the high gain stuff I was playing. It sounded good in standard with light gain, but once I dropped to D standard with a 5150, it didn't work for me. I swapped it out for a Dimarzio Illuminator and it fixed the negatives. And lastly, the guitar's natural tone isn't as "alive" as I would prefer, but I knew this going in. Basswood is a fine tone wood, just very neutral and slightly dull sounding. It let's the amp and pickups shine through more so than the actual guitar. It is, however, wonderfully light weight, and that is why I chose it. Luckily, I'm using this for high gain metal, so it works...but you won't be getting those naturally resonant tones that a Mahogany or Alder body give you.

Prestige vs Premium

Bought this Prestige a couple weeks ago and have had some time to feel it out, dial in some tones on my 6505, and play a long show with it. This guitar playes beautifully and sounds great. The 5 way switch is a huge plus for me, and I actually use the tone knob. VERY thin neck, but playes very easily. Holds tuning extremely well, bridge is easy to adjust and very comfortable, and comes with a great case. Im an experienced player and i currently own several other ibanez guitars. My main guitar for around a year now has been my Premium RG921QM with a dimarzio crunch lab swapped out in the bridge. This guitar has been put through hell show after show, lugged around countless times, and has held up extremely well. Still in almost perfect shape! In my opinion, the fret job on the Premium is much nicer, and the fret inlays are much better looking with the matching "pearl". The premium also has a thicker top, and the volume and tone knobs feel tighter and are not as prone to being bumped and moved while playing. The Tight End Bridge on those models are slightly more comfortable if you have larger hands. The Premium is a fair amount cheeper, and I honesly feel the build quality is truely just as good, and the reliability is fantastic. There are things about the Prestige I prefer (pickups, locking tuners) but these things are able to be aquired and swapped onto the premium. Also, the Premium does not come with a hard case like the Prestige. I love this new guitar, but I do feel that it's slightly overpriced. These guitars are beautiful, and I'm very satisfied with it, but I must admit my expectation were quite a bit higher given the price compared the to premium. Don't let this discourage you though, this is undoubtably an amazing guitar, but the Premium runs EXTREMELY close in all around quality.
