    Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige Series RG652AHM Electric Guitar:

    I'm primarily a Jackson player. However I wanted to try something new. I had been eyeing this one for several months and finally got it and oh my. Did it blow away my expectations. The finish alone is on par with $3000+ PRS guitars and the tone. Wow. The tones you can get from this beast are amazing and endless. Absolutely huge sound. The only thing that was weird was the neck. It was uncomfortably comfortable. No guitar should be this comfortable to play. I mean you pick it up and the thing plays itself.
    The guitar itself is very well balanced. The most comfortable guitar I've played while standing and rocking out. The tremelo was super easy to setup. I play in C standard and setting up a floyd can be a nightmare the trem took maybe 30 minutes to get strung, tuned, balanced and retuned and double checked for balancing. It's stayed in tune now for going on a week after an onslaught of divebombs.
    I can't get it out of tune.

    I would not think twice about buying this guitar again. If you're in the market for a high end Jackson, ESP or Ibanez prestige I would recommend this over the others. For the money you spend you get way more guitar than you would from any of the competitors Speaking from experience I moved from ESP to Jackson and now I think I'm home with Ibanez.
    Get this guitar. You will not regret it. I cannot find a negative thing to say about this axe.

      Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige Series RG652AHM Electric Guitar:

      It was back ordered with Ibanez and took two months for me to receive it. However, my patience paid off. What a stunning guitar. It has all of the exact feature I look for...from the DiMarzios Air Norton/Tone Zone pickups...to the wizard neck with bird's eye maple fingerboard....down to the 5-way pickup switch...the spec is perfect and a shred machine. The guitar was already set up when I got it, and to my amazement, it was in tune and just required some fine tuning.

      My RG652AHM Condition

      By John

      from Grand Blanc, MI

      Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige Series RG652AHM Electric Guitar:

      This was my 3rd Ibanez guitar.I got this guitar after 3 Months from my order. As soon as I got it I found out about problems with this model. 1st_ fragile and bad quality body and the same thing for hard shell case. after 2 weeks I found out both N Tune of volume and tuner are not straight and one of them has more angle, I opened that and see the part is broken so I took it to guitar center and claim for warranty and waited for the part more than 2 months and they never sent it, I was so mad and finally I could return it.
      I just Wasted my time about 6 month for this guitar ,a lot of phone calls to get it and for warranty as well.

      I do not give out 5 stars often!

      Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige Series RG652AHM Electric Guitar:

      I have owned several Ibanez guitars (various models) since the 80s, but never a Prestige. I also recently purchased an Ibanez J.Custom guitar (their highest end line, at more than twice the cost of a Prestige), so it was great to compare them. While the J.Custom is easily one of the finest guitars I have ever touched, the Prestige is a great relative value for the price and shares some of the same attributes (e.g., same pickups, neck dimensions, fret edge treatment, made in Japan). I purchased my Prestige used from Guitar Center and it was less than a year old (excellent condition). The used price was in line with what the market demands for similar used Prestige guitars. The Super Wizard neck is amazing - as much as I love all of my guitars (including Jackson Custom Shop, PRS Custom 24, Les Paul Standard, and more), the Wizard necks by Ibanez are truly my favorite. Thin, fast and smooth! I also love the look of the birdseye maple fretboard on this model - it's subtle but you have to see it close up. The pickups (Tone Zone and Air Norton) are two of my favorite pickups in combination and very versatile. The Edge bridge is fantastic - it's my favorite bridge next to an original Floyd Rose. It "flutters" very nicely and stays in tune great. This model (RG652AHM) is produced in two colors, and the other is the Antique White Blonde (the color I chose), which I like better than the Nebula Green. The green is okay, but the white is just sexy in my opinion. It's the same exact guitar though otherwise (same model number). I often don't give out 5 stars, but I think the quality and value here deserves it.
