To create guitars that are beyond the best, Ibanez carefully developed the modern specifications. The RG5000s feature Stainless Steel frets for a bright tone, long durability and smoothness, a rigid 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck; a beautiful wood grain fretboard, Made-in-Japan Luminlay side dots and the most cutting-edge pickups.
The RG5170G-SVF has a superb appearance thanks to the combination of the Silver Flat finish, white pearloid bindings and gold hardware.
This RG5170G features a Macassar Ebony fretboard. The RG5170G's Super Wizard HP neck and the meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provide extra-smooth playing. The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker and Single-Width are some of the most exciting and talked-about pickups in today's metal scene. The pickups provide an aggressive tone and powerful attack without the noise. The Voicing switch allows the pickups to have a modern, active high-output sound or a crisp, clean and fluid sound.
The Lo-Pro Edge bridge offers maximum playing comfort due to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. A hard-shell case is included. These guitars are beyond the best and the RG5000 series will take you to a higher stage.
