Prestige Series = Premium Playability and Tonal Range
Primed for rock and metal, the Ibanez RG655 RG Prestige solidbody electric guitar sets a great foundation for technical players. The five-piece Super Wizard HP is a thin, fast neck, and feels amazingly smooth thanks to the Prestige fret-edge treatment on its 24 jumbo frets. For expressive dives and bends, the RG655's Edge tremolo bridge delivers a fast and snappy response along with outstanding tuning stability and intonation. Factor in a combination of single-coil and humbucking pickups from DiMarzio, and you've got everything you need for commanding performances with the Ibanez RG655 RG Prestige.
Super Wizard HP neck plays fast and smooth
The RG655's super-fast Super Wizard HP neck lets you execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with silken ease, while still providing enough substance for comfortable chording. The feel of this neck is greatly enhanced by the Prestige fret-edge treatment, an extra step Ibanez takes to ensure maximum playing comfort and long-term playability. The process essentially rounds the fret ends much more precisely than is possible by hand filing. The RG655 will feel like its neck has been lovingly played for years, right out of the factory case.
Three DiMarzio pickups cover an expansive sonic range
There's no denying the massive range of tone you can get out of an H/S/H configuration, and with the Ibanez Prestige RG655's combo of DiMarzio pickups, you're in a whole new league altogether. First, there's the DiMarzio Tone Zone at the bridge, a hot humbucker with a super-wide dynamic range. It's a perfect complement to the RG655's DiMarzio Air Norton at the neck, which is deep, warm, and remarkably clean. And smack in the middle, you've got a DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil that's clean, bright, and sweet all the way up the neck — perfect for soloing. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love this ultra-flexible pickup combination.
Top-of-the-line RG Prestige series
Ibanez's RG Prestige series is filled with top instruments — all featuring the famous RG body style, with high-quality components through and through. With the RG655, you get a well-balanced, resonant basswood body plus a lightning-fast Super Wizard HP neck, dressed with the Prestige fret-edge treatment. Factor in DiMarzio pickups (a popular after-market upgrade for many players), and the acclaimed Edge tremolo, and it's clear the RG655 is a premium instrument for serious players.
