      Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

      It's all down to personal opinion. It is a great guitar. I personally don't like the pickups. They sound muted to me. But that is an easy swap out. My main complaint was the string tension and neck width. I play with 9-42's. Those are very light and yet they felt like 10's on this guitar. No amount of spring adjustments or saddle adjustments or truss rid adjustments allowed me to get the super low, easy, buzz free play that I am used to on Ibanez guitars. That being said, a professional setup that addressed in possible fret issues may have helped and maybe used springs would have fet better to me. I am used to playing old Jems. Also, and it may all be in my head, but it feels like IBanez necks have got wider recently. I have been playing for over thirty years and mostly on Ibanez. I am pretty good at setting up guitars with trems. I think this guitar could be top notch for many players if you swap out the pick ups. For me personally, the neck did not agrre with my hands or playing style. I hope this blathering helped somebody. Best advice is to play it for yourself and decide. Quality is typical Ibanez which is pretty darn good.

          Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

          I have a Japanese made Sabre Series that I have been playing for over 20 years which I love. I decided it was finally time to add new Ibanez to the lineup and I chose the Prestige RG655. It took a little getting used to. At first I found myself always going back to my Sabre Series but after I finally decided to give this instrument a fair chance and spent some time on it I have really began to appreciate the playability of this instrument. Its all about the neck. It has an extremely smooth finish on the backside and the action is impressive. Its a little wider than I'm used to but it was easy to adapt. Now when I go back to my old Sabre Series its easy to see what makes this Prestige special. This is a guitar that is designed to be a shredder and it begs to be played that way. As with any guitar the only way to know if you will like it is to play it. Give this instrument a try and decide for yourself.

            This thing is smokin! Great neck, low action, great fretwork, the pickups sound AMAZING they cover a HUGE range of tones. If you just want one stagnant over the top sound it wont be for you! Incredibly responsive to how you play. After a PROPER set up its impossible to make it go out of tune! Plays like a dream!! It just doesn't get any better. This is a pro level guitar in every way.

            Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

            Last person who reviewed. Maybe you should take the wammy bar off then it would be good. You r stupid for not taking it off in the first place. Is this your first ibanez because if it is i would go buy a 22 fret s siries. You should first take the wammy off then see how good it is. I own every single rg guitar. Maybe you should take my advise and go buy a 22 fret s siries.

              pickups had awful tone.
              impossible to change a string.
              strings always break
              and the action was way to tight!with 11 gauge strings!
              had to take it to a dealer and get it tuned one step down and swighted to 10 guage strings costing me 50 bukcs!
