Comments about Ibanez RG652AHMFX Prestige RG Series 6-String Electric Guitar:
After really enjoying playing an RG standard at GC, I decided I wanted a Japanese Ibanez. This guitar is gorgeous. You open up the case and it's a plush red velvet contrasting perfectly with the sexy nebula green burst. It is incredibly easy to play! Has a perfect balance slung over your shoulder or resting on your thigh. They didn't cut any corners with this instrument.
- Black chrome hardware looks slick
- Neck very thin and flat. Not just for shredding! Strips of walnut add a touch of elegance. Satin finish makes this a fast neck. Jumbo frets feel great. The birdseye fretboard is gorgeous. Locking tuners are robust. Stays in tune like a boss!
- Very clear difference in pickup output from neck to bridge. Bridge gets nice and dirty when the volume is up
- Pickups are a bit hotter than I expected, especially the tone zone in the bridge, but dialing down volume cleans them up very nicely (when you want them to be clean). I'm guessing the hot pickups are for shredders, who are a target Ibanez consumer. The parallel mode is a sweet addition allowing pickup to sound like a single rather than a humbucker
- Pickups have dimarzio embossed on them, but it's subtle and not visible from a distance- branding isn't as obnoxious as on seymour duncans
- Volume and tone knobs are knurled making them easy to turn with just a touch and resistance is light and smooth. Great gradual effect (doesn't just jump from 100% to 10% when you turn the knob only a tiny bit)
- Action can be set super low and bridge is very comfortable to rest your palm. No sharp saddles as on some tune-o-matics
- Amazing custom-molded guitar case that looks sexy and has a hard plastic outer shell. Form-fitted for this guitar
- Guitar comes with a multi-tool with everything on it, even a short metal scale
- The fret markers are just dots, not inlays
- Doesn't come equipped with straplocks
- Pickup selector feels cheap compared with the rest of the hardware, but has authoritative action otherwise
