The Ibanez RG2550Z Prestige HSH Electric Guitar in Mystic Night Metallic is a sublime instrument that showcases what Ibanez do best - make exceptional guitars that play like a dream and sound like a juggernaut. The RG body has been at the top of its class for over 30 years, and it just keeps getting better and better.
The body is crafted from basswood, a tonally neutral wood that allows the intensity of the pickups to roar, whilst guaranteeing a solid reinforcement to the guitar's sustain. The sleek curves of the RG body shape are what make it such a covetous model, rewarding speed and precision with a graceful feel that is unsurpassed. Finished in a bold Mystic Night Metallic paintjob, it is every bit as striking visually, as it is a sonic powerhouse.
As with all Ibanez guitars, the neck has been crafted with delicate care and precision to ensure it is as smooth, fast and easy to play as possible. The 5-piece maple/walnut neck is tonally bright - complementing the rich lower tones produced by the body -, with articulation infused into each and every note across the luxurious rosewood fingerboard. The extra-long scale Wizard HP neck profile ensures an enduring sustain, as well as a super slim playing platform to elegantly perform fretboard gymnastics on. The RG2550Z benefits from the Prestige Fret Edge Treatment, guaranteeing smooth transitions along the neck as you play.
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.
The Edge-Zero tremolo bridge with Zero Point System 3, allows you to dive-bomb and wail to your heart's content. No matter how aggressive or frenetic your style, the highly responsive trem system will ensure that your strings retain their tuning without any fuss. Minor adjustments can be made on the fly and the tension of the whammy bar can be modified to suit your playing style. The matching headstock and cosmo black hardware complete the high quality finish.
