The RG was developed in the 80s as the Roadstar (RG stands for Roadstar Guitar) and it soon earned a reputation as a pedal-to-the-metal shred machine. Although there are RG players in a range of genres, the metal guitarist continues to be the die-hard RG player. The RG2XXV 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar sports a "best of" collection of features favored by RG fans, including a wizard III neck, HSH pickup layout and locking tremolo bridge. This RG also benefits from a bold color treatment with its bright finish, color-matched inlays and fluorescent strings.

This guitar has a great color and its really nice, the neck is thin which makes it easier to move around, I bought this guitar and since the moment I saw it I knew it was gonna be a good guitar, the sound is great, has a lot of power and great for effects and chords. The only thing I had trouble with was getting used to the floyd rose bridge. I use this guitar to play at my church every sunday and its been amazing so far.
Pros: Super fast neck, great Floyd Rose locking tremolo setup with easily adjustable springs in the back, bright color selections really make it stand out and give that classic 80's RG look, smooth sounding pickups make it nice to solo Cons: The jumbo frets are susceptible to how hard you press down on the strings (people who put a fair amount of pressure on your strings will notice annoying pitch problems). The Invader pickups are nice and smooth but lack the kick you'd really want for some heavy chords or metal. Over all, certainly not a bad guitar! It is a great option for all you who like to bust a good solo out! While you probably wouldn't turn to it for an epic breakdown in a song, it is nice for intricate work
I do not own this guitar yet. But every time I go to Guitar Center I have to play it. I would like to buy it soon. It has a very fast neck. It's thin and you can glide up and down it as you shred. Ibanez always has quality instruments. Even their cheaper guitars are nice. It can get a great tone for metal but it can also handle other styles such as jazz, blues, and rock. It has a clean choppy sound. It's bright, the notes are crystal clear when playing at lightning speeds. The only downside is that it is a little heavy other than that it's an amazing guitar. The low profile floating trem is nice. It doesn't get in the way when machine gun picking. This guitar gets some nice harmonics also. It is all in all a very good guitar.
This guitar caught my eye as soon as I walked into the store. It really is beautiful. I tried it out at the store and convinced myself that it sounded great but it did not. I got home. I have owned it now for 2 weeks and it lacks the power that you would expect from a Roadster Guitar such as this one. If you are all about looks this is a great looking and workable guitar, but it the sound does not have a kick to it.
