The Ibanez RG521 MIJ Electric Guitar is a Japanese-built model that is perfect for gigging guitarists who want pro-level workmanship at an affordable price. Balancing comfortable playability alongside tonal versatility to perfection, the RG521 is a sublime guitar that would make a welcome addition to any guitarist's arsenal.

Sleek RG body

The RG521 is shaped to the RG series body profile, a deep double-cutaway design with a slender body depth and curves in all the right places. Thanks to the ergonomically designed contours and the softly bevelled edges, the figure-hugging feel afforded by the body is an absolute delight.

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.

Fast-playing neck

The RG series has a steady reputation for producing necks of outstanding quality, and the RG521 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 sumptuous 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. The fingerboard has received Ibanez' Prestige fret edge treatment to make seamless transitions between frets even more comfortable.

Ibanez humbuckers

The Ibanez RG521 is powered by a pair of Ibanez V7 and V8 humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions respectively. Voiced to make the most of the basswood's versatile tonality, these pickups take you from sparkling cleans to blistering overdrive, with everything in between. Whether you're fingerpicking, flatpicking, hybrid picking, tapping, or whatever other kind of picking you can think of, each note will be translated and transmitted with the utmost articulation.

Gig-ready hardware

Fitted to the body is a Gibraltar Standard II bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The distinctive Ibanez headstock is home to Gotoh MG-T machine heads, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision to prevent unwanted slippage during performances. You can rest assured that the Ibanez RG521 MIJ Electric Guitar has your back, no matter how enthusiastically you perform.
