The Ibanez Limited Edition RG657PB Prestige MIJ Guitar in Anvil Gray Burst Flat offers an elaborate rendition of the lauded RG. By employing an exotic tonewood partnership alongside a highly versatile pickup arrangement, the RG657PB is a very special model indeed. Each model is supplied with a hardshell case to keep yours in pristine condition at home or on the go.
Sleek RG body profile
The body of the Ibanez RG657PB is constructed using African mahogany, which establishes a healthy mid to low-end tonal character. Paired with this is a cool poplar burl top that is finished in a stunning anvil grey burst flat. The body is shaped to the distinctive double-cutaway design that has made the RG such a legendary model. The slender depth is combined with sweeping curves and bevelled edges to maximise playing comfort. Whether you like to wear your guitar high or low, the lightweight and streamlined design make this an absolute joy to perform with.
Lightning fast Super Wizard HP neck
Firmly fitted to the body is a 5-piece maple/walnut neck. Shaped to the Super Wizard HP neck profile, your fretting hand is afforded a substantial yet manageable playing feel. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with white dot inlays to guide your way. The jumbo frets have been given Ibanez' Prestige fret edge treatment to ensure seamless transitions between frets. The 430mm fingerboard radius suits the natural resting position of your fingers to promote a lightning fast playing feel.
The RG657PB is home to a trio of DiMarzio pickups with an Air Norton in the neck, True Velvet in the middle, and The Tone Zone in the bridge. From chunky saturated mids to sparkling highs the DiMarzios give you a vast tonal repertoire to play with. Whatever style of music you play you can masterfully segue between musical genres with effortless grace. With a 5-way pickup selector switch, a master volume pot and a master tone pot at your disposal, the control setup is delightfully intuitive as well as offering exceptional versatility.
Hardware and Finish
The body of the RG657PB Prestige is home to the Edge tremolo bridge, which is a masterpiece of engineering. The Edge tremolo ensures precision tuning by working in conjunction with the tuning machines and locking nut. Once you dial in your tuning and lock in the clamps you can make subtle intonation adjustments at the bridge. From deep dives to weeping wails everything responds as smoothly as you could wish for. Simply put, the hardware setup complements the stunning good looks by ensuring you'll never want to put this beauty down.
