The Ibanez RG655-CBM Prestige Electric Guitar in Cobalt Blue Metallic is a lean, mean, shredding machine. With over 30 years worth of experience going into the classic RG Series design, this Japanese built model takes on the high performance pedigree with aplomb.
The sleek lines of the RG655-CBM come straight from the classic models of the 80s, a time when shred took hold of the music world and every player wanted to follow in the nimble style of Satriani and Vai. The slim "Super Strat" body includes sophisticated, ergonomically designed edges that make the body very easy to cradle during performances. Crafted from the tonally balanced and lightweight basswood, you'll never tire of wielding this beauty night after night.
The body is fitted with an Ibanez Edge tremolo bridge, a highly regarded locking tremolo system that encourages dive-bombs and crazy wailing. No matter how you attack this beauty, it will slip back into original position with absolute accuracy and the utmost efficiency - perfect!
Ibanez are renowned for their legendary neck designs, showcasing a talent for crafting slim yet incredibly strong platforms along which to perform graceful fingerboard gymnastics. The RG655-CBM is equipped with a 5-piece maple/walnut nut, which has been shaped to the Super Wizard HP profile - a mind-boggling 17mm thickness at the 1st fret, and 19mm at the 12th! Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard with white dot position inlays, guiding your way in style all the way up to the 24th fret. The deep double-cutaways on the body make it very easy to access the neck in its entirety.
In order to deliver the greatest breadth of tonal diversity, Ibanez has fitted this Prestige model with three outstanding US-made DiMarzio pickups. In the neck position is the Air Norton passive humbucker, in the middle is a True Velvet passive single-coil, and in the bridge is The Tone Zone passive humbucker. This trio equips you with everything you need to perform subtle clean licks to taking to the heavens.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of a 5-way pickup selector switch to access each pickup individually, or combining the inner coil of the neck or bridge pickup with the middle. The master volume and master tone controls do the rest, so all you need to do is rock out.
If all that wasn't enough, the Ibanez RG655-CBM Prestige Electric Guitar in Cobalt Blue Metallic comes with a hardshell case, so that as soon as it arrives you're ready to get out and play.
