The Ibanez RG1550M Prestige Electric Guitar is another exciting addition to Ibanez's popular RG series that looks good and sounds great.
The RG1550M features a 5 piece maple/walnut Wizard Prestige neck with maple fretboard, black dot inlay, 3 pickups and an Edge-Pro tremolo bridge. Case is included.
The RG1550M can dial in any tone, from crystal clear to searing and nasty, thanks to its V7 neck pickup, S1 middle pickup and V8 bridge pickup combination.
In the last two decades, no other guitar maker besides Ibanez has done so much to advance the art and science of the tremolo. The Edge-Pro represents the next phase in locking tremolos.
To avoid the problem of string holder blocks getting lost during string changes, the Edge-Pro’s sliding string holders are actually part of the bridge and won’t drop from the saddle unit. Also, with the Edge-Pro design, there’s no need to cut off the ball end of your strings when installing new strings.
The Edge-Pro also features a unique Sound Metal Chip on each saddle which helps increase sustain right at the most critical area, the intonation point.

Single 1 Middle Pickup

Vintage 7 Neck Pickup
