The Ibanez RG2550E Prestige guitar features DiMarzio IBZ pickups (2 humbuckers and a single coil) for the ultimate in metal domination.
To back up all that gain and power, the RG2550E provides a basswood body, delivering the depth and warmth that perfectly complement the screaming pickups. Other features include a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, a 5-piece maple and walnut neck, and cosmo black hardware.
The Edge Pro bridge on the RG2550E features a unique Sound Metal Chip on each saddle which helps increase sustain right at the most critical point. 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. With the Edge Pro design, there’s no need to cut off the ball end of your strings when installing new strings.
