Ibanez RGR5130 Prestige Fishman Fluence Modern Pickups

Adaptable Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers

Powering the RGR5130’s versatile tones are a pair of innovative Fishman Fluence Modern humbuckers. The alnico neck pickup delivers a warm, liquid tone perfect for singing lead work and fat rhythms. In the bridge position, the ceramic Fluence Modern cranks the output for aggressive punch and searing distortion. But the real magic happens when you engage the voicing switch, instantly transforming the pickups’ character from hot-rodded modern to smooth and fluid vintage-inspired voicing. You get the best of both worlds in one ultraquiet, ultraresponsive active pickup system.

Silky Super Wizard HP Neck

The RGR5130’s sublime playability stems largely from its 5-piece maple/wenge neck. Carefully carved to a flat, thin profile, the Super Wizard HP neck instantly provides a familiar feel to any player who’s picked up an Ibanez RG before. Paired with 24 jumbo stainless steel frets and specially treated, hand-rolled Prestige edges, the RGR5130 boasts an incredibly fast, smooth playing experience free of friction or discomfort. The Macassar ebony fretboard’s dense grain also imparts bell-like articulation and rich sustain, while offering a velvety surface for your fingertips to glide from note to note. Whether it’s the most demanding solos or intricate chordal work, this neck lets your technique shine.

Premium Tuning Stability and Sustain

Maintaining the RGR5130 Prestige’s precise intonation and tuning is the renowned Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge floating tremolo bridge.

Complementing the bridge is a set of premium Gotoh machine heads, ensuring your pitch remains stable throughout even the most dramatic whammy flutters, squeals and dive bombs.
