Stunning Prestige Playability

The Ibanez RG657PB RG Prestige solidbody electric guitar was created to be a supremely playable, great-sounding guitar. The mahogany RG body is topped with poplar burl for an evocative look, and you'll love the feel of the fast, 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard HP neck. The RG657PB RG Prestige uses DiMarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton humbuckers to push your amp for crunchy rhythms and hot leads. Get your hands on the RG657PB RG Prestige, and find out how far it can take your playing.

Incredibly fast Super Wizard HP neck

The Ibanez Wizard necks are thin, built-for-speed, enabling effortless playability and comfort. The RG657PB RG Prestige takes that design to the next level with its 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard HP neck. You'll be able to execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with ease. Capping the Super Wizard neck is a bound 24-fret rosewood fretboard, loaded with jumbo frets that are perfect for big note bends.

Ibanez Edge locking tremolo for complete control and tuning stability

The original (not to mention legendary) Ibanez Edge locking tremolo system is back on this RG657PB RG Prestige. Though there are different variations on this system, the original Edge, introduced in 1986, is still one of the most desired designs, being used by guitar virtuosos such as Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. You'll gain complete pitch control, while resting assured your tuning will always remain rock solid.

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 RG657PB'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 RG657PB's DiMarzio Air Norton at the neck, which is deep, warm, and remarkably clean. And smack in the middle position, 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.

Killer guitar for any style

I have played a few ibanez guitars, a couple JEMS and the one JS model that i loved so this fuitar is familiar territory for me but the pickup combination makes it very versatile. I can use it for metal, rock, blues and funk. The neck is great and it has the original edge trem which is awesome. The bridge pickup has plenty of power while the neck is a bit cleaner and great for blues solos. You get that great spanky tone from rhe middle pickup and the in between ones give you that great fender style quack. I also have to mention the finish on this guitar looks amazing...so much better than the picture when you see it for real. Finally I have to thank Bart Amburn for making buying this great guitar a pleasure, I love doing business with him.
