Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

I bought the Cobalt blue model. It came with NO setup. The action was terrible but since MF doesn't perform setups on the guitars they sell, it was not unexpected. After an evening tweaking the neck, action, and intonation, all is well. It plays great. It's a typical Ibanez neck, very thin, flat and fast. I really like the Edge trem. I forgot how smooth it was. Top notch.

The only downside I see is the pickups. I know a lot of folks like the Dimarzio "Tone Zone" but it's not my style. I like I bridge pickup with a bit of "air", that has some highs and will cut through in a mix. The Tone zone is very dark with little to offer in the way of highs. I've ordered a Dimarzio Evolution set that should be more in line with my taste.

So, it's a nice guitar if you like dark pickups. If not, plan on spending some more cash to correct the issue. I'd recommend it with that reservation.
