A dream guitar for shredders!
The Ibanez RG5SP1 electric guitar from the RG series has a deep double-cutaway basswood body with a 3-piece maple neck. The Wizard II profile paves the way for fast and effortless shredding. Aesthetic touches include an "X" inlay at the 12th fret of the 24-fret rosewood fingerboard and black hardware including the Edge III tremolo bridge, die cast tuners, and master control knobs.
The Infinity 3 (INF3) humbucking neck pickup has a ceramic magnet and delivers dynamic tones for chording and rhythm. The Infinity 4 humbucking bridge pickup features an Alnico magnet and has a brilliant tone for lead work. Its warm sound generates good harmonics.
Edge III tremolo
The RG5SP1's Edge III tremolo has lower profile fine tuners for better palm comfort and provides strength and extraordinary tuning stability even under the most demanding playing conditions. The diabolical, double-locking Edge III bridge lets you get into radical tremolo territory while retaining total tuning stability.
For two decades, the popularity of Ibanez RG axes has grown like a virus, thrusting it to the forefront of metal music. The Ibanez RG's fast, flat necks, rabid pickups, and double-locking tremolos deliver demonically charged sounds that go far beyond the world of mere mortals
