The Ibanez RG550DX Electric Guitar in Ruby Red is another awesome addition to the RG family, built in Japan by Ibanez's expert luthiers. Part of the Ibanez Genesis Collection, the RG550DX aims to bring back the feel of the original iconic 1987 RG with it's incredible playability and versatility. Although the RG series are a frontrunner in the rock and metal scenes you'll find this guitar is capable of handling crisp, clean arpeggios just as well as it does thick, distorted riffing.

Sleek RG body

The RG550 is shaped to the slender and stylish RG profile, with a deep double-cutaway shape that is ergonomically-designed to put comfort and speed at the fore with unrivalled higher fret access. The contoured lower bout and back ensure that the guitar fits snugly against you, leaving you to concentrate on those sweeps and scale runs.

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 RG550DX is most at home with hard rock, fusion, and metal thanks to its laser-like mid-range focus.

Fast-playing thin neck

The RG series has a steady reputation for producing necks of outstanding quality and the RG550DX is no exception to that. 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 bound granadillo fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with striking Sharktooth inlays to aid in your navigation. Thanks to the deep double-cutaway body profile, every fret is within comfortable reaching distance. The RG550DX also sees a return of the 'tilt neck joint', whereby the heel of the joint is tilted towards the bottom, thereby creating a thinner joint to give you even better upper fret access.

Ibanez Original 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.

High Quality Hardware

The body is home to the Ibanez Edge tremolo bridge, which affords accurate vibrato control that takes you from minor dips to deep divebombs and wailing 'Dime Squeals'. Each string is anchored securely to optimise intonation and sustain ensuring once your work with the whammy is over your guitar will return to perfect tuning. The headstock is home to Ibanez tuning machines, which work closely with the locking nut to uphold tuning integrity and string tension for a reassuringly steady feel, no matter how hard you rock out.
