The Ibanez 2017 RG652LWFX Prestige Electric Guitar in Anvil Gray Burst is an extravagant axe that is bound to be love at first sight. Prestige electric guitars are high end models, which are built by a team at the top of their field to specifications that exceed the demands of the most discerning of guitarists.
Sleek RG body profile
Ibanez have employed basswood to construct the body of the RG652LWFX Prestige model, giving it a lightweight feel and a balanced tonal offering. As the name suggests, the profile takes on the deep double cutaway shape of the classic RG, one of the most popular models ever crafted. The RG Prestige model is perfectly formed for guitarists who savour being able to play hard, fast riffs while feeling ultimately comfortable and reassured by the overall feel and build of the instrument. The top is made using limba wood, and completed in Anvil Gray Burst to provide an exotic finish.
Lightning fast Super Wizard HP neck
Firmly fitted to the ash body of the RG652LWFX Prestige guitar is a 5-piece maple/walnut neck. It is built to the Super Wizard HP neck profile which absolutely promotes a faster playing feel, perfect for a face-melting solo. To complete this, it is married up with a rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets, which are decorated with dot position inlays to guide you in elegant fashion.
To enable you to make the most of the adaptable tones at your very fingertips, Ibanez have fitted two DiMarzio pickups to the RG652LWFX Prestige guitar. In the neck position is a DiMarzio Air Norton pickup, which is accompanied by a DiMarzio The Tone Zone pickup in the bridge position. This pairing of pickups produce warm, balanced dynamics, but also ensure that you can achieve a high output with depth and clarity. Whether you want subtle fingerpicking or huge chords, these two pickups will give you everything you need.
Hardware and Finish
The body of the RG652LWFX Prestige is equipped with a Gibraltar Standard II hardtail bridge which the strings are fed through. This bridge holds a firm connection between the strings and the ash body to improve sustain and overall tone, plus it’s easy to change your strings when the time comes.
Gotoh MG-T Locking machine heads are fitted to the headstock to provide accurate tuning integrity for each string. The machine heads are Cosmo Black which makes them stand out against the rosewood fingerboard and the Anvil Gray Burst headstock.
Like its predecessors, the 2017 Ibanez RG652LWFX Prestige Electric Guitar is an outstanding model which has tonnes of top quality features. Once you start playing you won’t be able to put it down, but if you’re planning to take your guitar on the road for some live gigs Ibanez have conveniently included a hardshell case to protect it.
