Ibanez RG Prestige RG655M - Cobalt Blue Metallic
More On The Way Notify me

Prestige Series = Premium Playability and Tonal Range

Primed for rock and metal, the Ibanez RG655M 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 RG655M'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 RG655M RG Prestige.

Super Wizard HP neck plays fast and smooth

The RG655M'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 RG655M 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 RG655M'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 RG655M'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 RG655M, 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 RG655M is a premium instrument for serious players.

Ibanez RG655M RG Prestige 6-string Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Distinctively sculpted, resonant, and beautifully balanced basswood RG body
  • Lightning-fast Super Wizard HP Prestige neck 
  • 24 jumbo frets with an ultra-smooth feel thanks to the Prestige fret-edge treatment
  • DiMarzio Air Norton, Tone Zone, and True Velvet pickups serve up a wide range of tone
  • Edge tremolo lets you dip, dive, and warble while staying in tune
  • Hardshell case included

My Baby

I had an Ibanez Prestige 2550Z many years ago, ended up selling and immediately regretting it afterwards....After saving up money and searching for "the tone" again I noticed this little thing on Sweetwaters' site. I've had it for about a month now, and.....it is AWESOME, the pickups are better than the 2550z, and it plays super smooth, sustain is good (not as good as my lespaul, though it might be because of the superlight strings it came with), and the Locking system keeps it quite in tune. I'd highly recommend this guitar for people that want something fast, professional, and comfortable.
