Product Description

The Ibanez Genesis Collection is a throwback to the original RG series that debuted in 1987, providing a platform designed for rock guitarists of all types! Just like the originals, the RG550 features the ultra thin Super Wizard neck— constructed of five solid pieces of Maple and Walnut for absolute rock solid stability to provide extra-smooth playing. With the classic Edge tremolo bridge, the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed with confidence that the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning. The original Ibanez V7, S1, V8 pickups offer a wide range of sound and attack when combined with the 5-way pickup switch. Additionally, incredible tuning stability is achieved through the use of the Gotoh machine heads.

It all started in 1987, the debut of the Ibanez RG was a milestone in rock guitar history. With its spartan look, supreme playability and versatility due to innovative specs, the RG made a big impact and is still evolving today. The Ibanez Genesis Collection brings back vibe of the good old days with precise construction by Japanese craftsmanship, to prove that this iconic guitar has always led the rock guitar scene.

Such a great guitar

Product Review

I got the road flare red one and wow is it bright! I'm really enjoying playing it. The edge trem is as good as it ever was (the best floating trem imo). There was no fret end smoothing done so it was sharp but it's an easy fix if you know how and have a special file to protect the fretboard, or inexpensive in setup with a luthier. Another downside is no case which is odd because I've bought other Japanese made Ibanez guitars over the years for less money and they all came with a hardcase.

Japanese quality craftsmanship at an affordable price.

Product Review

The RG550 Genesis is an exceptional quality guitar. The quality level is on par with my US made guitars. It is equal to the original 1987 model in many ways but I believe the 5 piece, satin finish, maple / walnut neck is superior to the original. I bought 2 of them. Do not hesitate to buy one today from AMS.

1991 called and I'm glad I picked up!

Product Review

This was a nostalgic purchase because I'm a fan of these guitars from back in the day when everyone was using them. The bright yellow finish is remarkable, the pickups provide a nice range of tones, but the neck... Better buckle your seat belt because this baby is FAST! The feel of the back of the neck and the maple fretboard are insane. Plug in, turn up the gain and you'll be sweeping, string skipping, tapping and dive bombing the whammy like no one else.

Lives up to its hype

Product Review

Considering this guitar is made in Japan you can expect superior craftsmanship. The guitar feels and sounds great. I am even impressed with the stock pickups, coming from a guitarist who swears by swapping his pickups. The edge bridge is on point. All the color options look gorgeous in person. This guitar is defiantly worth it's price tag and I can see why people say it rivals the original models. If you are considering this guitar just buy it, you wont regret it!

AMS TOPS THEM ALL!!!!

Product Review

I haven’t purchased a new guitar in years... for the sole reason that I wasn’t able to afford it in a one lump sum payment. Ams offers great deal on a monthly payment. I’ve been wanting an RG for years!; since I ran into the genesis series at NAMM 2019, I knew I had to get one.. so I that’s when I found AMS. I did a little research, went for it and I was not disappointed! AMS has won my heart and I will definitely be going to them directly for any of my musical equipment! Just ordered a couple pedals too!

Great Guitar!

Product Review

This guitar is just like the first Ibanez I ever bought. I don’t know why they stopped making these guitars. Super fast neck and great tone. The low pro edge tremolo is the best tremolo ever made and the classic headstock is awesome. Get one!
