    Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

    I bought this because of hand and shoulder issues . After playing it for a week I'm really digging it. I thought that the humbucker hi gain stuff would be good but was surprised how much I liked the middle and in between sounds . It has enough spank with clean tones. This is a great do all guitar not just for metal.

      If you're looking at this Ibanez then you already know what you want, I've played Ibanez guitars for 15 years and this is by far the best you can buy for this price point.. Dimarzio Tone Zone, Air Norton and True Velvet are made for this guitar it seems..

          Comments about Ibanez RG655 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

          I am very pleased with this guitar. I have been playing USA made Jackson guitars for over 20 years and I still do. I thought I would try something a little different and decided to purchase the RG655. I am really impressed and a little surprised at how much I love the feel of this neck. It is very thin and very wide. I didn't think the neck would feel this wide to me since I play the Jacksons, but it is consideralby wider than my other guitars and I really like it. It seems very easy to play with the wider string spacing and the thin neck and flat radius. The finish is flawless and beautiful, the trem feels really smooth, and I like the sound of the DiMarzios quite a bit. It also comes with a very nice hard case. Overall, I think this is a great guitar for the price, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fast playing electric guitar with a locking trem. One note, when I went to set up the guitar to my liking, I was frustrated that I couldn't lower the action at the bridge because the studs would not lower. I then looked at the owner's manual and found out the trem features a "stud lock" feature. I had to use the little allen wrench to loosen the stud lock inside the bridge stud and then I could lower the bridge to where I wanted it. Just wanted to give a future owner a heads up on how to adjust the trem. If you are reading this review and are considering buying this guitar, I say get it, you won't be disappointed!

          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.
