The RG550DX boasts a prominent feature of the original RG: the ultra-thin Super Wizard neck— constructed of five glued, solid pieces of Maple/Walnut for absolute rock solid stability as well as extra-smooth playing. The classic Edge tremolo bridge ensures that the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed and the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning. The original Ibanez V7, S1 and V8 pickups offer a wide range of tones and attack when combined with the 5-way pickup selector switch. The RG550DX also features a beautiful Granadillo fretboard with a striking Sharktooth inlay.
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 its innovative specs, the RG made a big impact and continues to evolve today. The Ibanez Genesis Collection brings back the vibe of the good old days with precise construction by Japanese craftsmanship, proving that this iconic guitar has always and will always lead the rock guitar scene.
