      Ibanez RG5SP1 Electric Guitar (620081)
Availability:  


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.

Infinity Pickups
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

  • It is so 'UNDER-PRICED'

    As reviewed by Edward Suh on 3/12/2010

    This is just perfect. I have nothing to say. There are many good metal guitars. and I'm pretty sure it's one of the best metal guitars. I've used Schecter Synyster custom and Fender US Strat. But I wasn't satisfied with them. First of all, Schecter and Fender, their guitars are so overpriced. But, Ibanez rg5sp1 was different. I would say it is the most metal-compatible guitar. Its floyd rose edge3 tremolo bridge wasn't more bendable than floyd rose original signed tremolo bridge. But it was good enough to play semi-metal(avenged sevenfold songs). and INF3 and INF4 were pretty good match. It's up to you guys, but it wasn't bad for me. actually it sounds pretty sharp(crunchy), so it was great for me. plus, ibanez's super-thin neck was good to play something fast songs(metal solo parts). and if u are interested in this guitar, then i would recommend jackson guitars too. just look em up and make a good decision.

  • Either love it or hate it

    As reviewed by Alex Baldizon on 4/19/2011

    This is one of those cases where you either completely love or hate this guitar. It's got jumbo frets that take getting used to. I've got small hands and one of my main guitars has a really thin neck and smaller frets, so it took me a while to get used to it. The good thing about it is that when you're shredding on the higher notes at the lower part of the neck, it's actually easier to play with a little bit wider frets, which allows for more accuracy and speed. It also takes a while getting used to playing without the markers on the fretboard, and you really have to work hard at it if you're not used to it. The neck is a little wide for my taste but it's thin. Once you get past those things you realize this is a great guitar. It's great for playing metal. It has the Infinity 3 and 4 pickups which are really good, and since it has a 5-position switch you can really get a lot of sounds out of this guitar. The Edge III tremolo is really good, it's really comfortable when it comes to playing and really stays in tune. The guitar is really well built. I think it looks really cool, but that's a question of individual taste.

  • Amazingly versatile guitar

    As reviewed by D. Manzella on 8/26/2009

    This an absolutely amazing guitar, so I'll start with the cons. I can barely think of any, but one problem that fender vets will find in switching to this guitar is that the frets are rather tiring, because they are much larger, and it takes effort to slide correctly if you are used to a strat's smaller frets. Also, it only has one tone knob, and no fret markers on the fretboard (there are binding markers though). On to the good stuff! The best thing about this guitar is its versatility. It has a very responsive treble and a tight bass on clean, has a punchy crunch sound, and melts faces with high gain. I'd say that it has the most output of any passive guitar that i've tried, and though many people dislike the inf3 and 4 buckers, they provide plenty of punch. The tremolo is just as good as a floyd, and is a lot more comfortable for palm muting. Being an ibanez, it is perfect for satch and vai repertoire, but can also get Slash tones, and I'm guessing the 5 way blade switch includes the coil tap (so you can get a strat sound too). I'd say that this is a huge upgrade from an epi les paul, and about the same quality (better features, slightly lower quality tone) of a Stratocaster. I'd say that the only guitar i couldn't imitate with this would be a tele, but that's pretty obvious from the start. Overall, an incredible axe for any style, and it seems like it will last me the rest of my life. Get it if you want a dream guitar for a starving artist's price.
