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.

1991 called and I'm glad I picked up!
What is your opinion of this product?
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
What is your opinion of this product?
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!!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
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!
What is your opinion of this product?
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!

As good or better than my original RG550!
What is your opinion of this product?
I owned an early 90's RG550 and it was the one guitar I have regretted trading over the years. When I saw this, I had to have one. This is a great Japanese/Prestige Ibanez at a great price. It's everything I remember and more...the neck is even better and I love having a guitar with the original Edge tremelo again. I got the minor blemished desert sun yellow model, but can't find a blemish on it! It came out of the box pretty well set up...neck straight/slight relief, low action, nearly in tune. The intonation will just need a slight adjustment when I get around to changing strings. This one will be one of my keepers.

Best guitar I've bought so far!
What is your opinion of this product?
This was actually the first guitar I ever bought with my own money. And I gotta say I picked a hell of a good one! The guitar showed up almost perfectly set up! The tuning just needed a bit of a adjustment but other than that, the intonation was spot on and the action was perfect for my style of playing! The neck feels as smooth as butter when moving your hand up and down while playing, the Edge tremelo stays in tune no matter how much abuse you give it, and the pickups sound amazing considering their stock pickups. It's also very comfy to play and pretty light in weight so it'll do just fine if you're sitting for long periods of time, or if you're in a live setting. Overall, this is one amazing beast of an instrument! Absolutely worth every penny!

Love this guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have owned a lot of Ibanez mostly prestige models. From JS’s to Jem’s and many more but lately i’ve Been more of a Strat guy. I got this today and it is flawless. It sounds and plays like a dream. I got the RFR RG550 and wouldn’t trade it for anything. It suits me perfect.
