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.

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.

It’s a good playing guitar.
What is your opinion of this product?
There’s a couple finish spots that didn’t turn out right. A rough spot near the tone knob and the bottom horn tip. The fret ends are sharp and protruding. Got $100 off but am left disopointed. I took the $100 because there were no others to replace it with and I needed it and the hassle of returning. I like it but expected better. Also may be a trem issue but not sure yet. I wanted a shredder and got one. Just not that feeling you get when it’s righy.

Great
What is your opinion of this product?
Pretty damn good. I gave it a 5 because I was never thrilled with the pickups, even on the 87 models, however, I knew this when I bought it. Plays like a dream, sounds phenomenal since I put the evolution set in them. You may like the pickups that come in them, and don't get me wrong, the pickups aren't that bad, I just prefer a different tone. The guitar is awesome. The road flare red I didn't buy through American Musical. My yellow one will be here Tuesday,.... Yeah, I ordered 2, they are that good.....
