The RG852LW features an exotic African Black Limba capped Basswood body, and the renowned Ultra-8 Prestige neck—constructed of five, glued, solid pieces of Maple/ Wenge—for absolute rock solid stability and fast, smooth, high-performance playing. Electronics include a pair of US made EMG 808 pickups for a responsive, super-tight low-end with exceptional articulation, plus a 3-way selector switch. The Gibraltar Standard II-8 Bridge, designed for precise intonation adjustment, playing comfort, and great sustain, combine with super smooth Gotoh MG-T locking tuners for superior tuning stability.
As the crown jewel of Ibanez, the Prestige line represents the passion and pride of Japanese luthiery. These guitars, produced exclusively in Japan, have earned worldwide acclaim and respect throughout the industry for their craftsmanship, quality, and innovation. Combine this with the classic Ibanez RG design and you have an instrument that truly represents a cornerstone of the Ibanez legacy.
