Description

Details

The Ibanez 2018 RG550 MIJ Electric Guitar is an awesome addition to the RG family, built in Japan by experts in their craft. The team at Ibanez are faultless in their consistency, and the RG has been the go-to guitar for many legends since its release. If you like to play with power and precision, then the RG550 is the ideal guitar for you.

Sleek RG body

The RG550 is shaped to the slender and stylish RG profile, which adheres to a deep double-cutaway shape that is ergonomically-designed to put comfort and speed at the fore. The contoured edges and rolled upper bout establishes a snug feel as you play, removing any obstacles from your path for total freedom.

The body is built using basswood, a lightweight and tonally balanced wood that produces a pronounced mid-range character. The low-end rolls off to prevent muddiness, and the highs are sweet without sounding sharp, giving you an adaptable output for tackling virtually any musical style. However, the RG550 is most at home with hard rock, fusion, and metal thanks to its laser-like mid-range focus.

Fast-playing neck

The RG series has a steady reputation for producing necks of outstanding quality, and the RG550 is no exception to that rule. Joined with the body is a durable five-piece maple/walnut neck, which is shaped to the Super Wizard profile to maximise speed and comfort. Flat and thin, you can fret chords or soar through solos without anything to hold you back.

Married to the neck is a luxurious maple fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, every fret is within comfortable reaching distance.

Ibanez humbuckers

The Ibanez RG550 is powered by a trio of Ibanez pickups, with V7 and V8 pickups in the neck and bridge, and an S1 single-coil in the middle position. When it comes to versatility, this arrangement gives you everything that you could imagine to produce an epic sonic assault. Whether you're tapping out melodic phrases, sweeping through mind-bending arpeggios, and shredding through power chords as fast as you can, each note will be delivered with precision.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is home to Ibanez' Edge tremolo bridge, which affords accurate vibrato control that takes you from minor adjustment extending to deep dives and wailing highs. Each string is anchored securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Ibanez tuning machines, which works closely with the locking nut to uphold tuning integrity and string tension for a reassuringly steady feel, no matter how hard you rock out.
