Designed for hardworking musicians with great playability, great looks, and professional components.
The new Ibanez Premium series of guitars designed for hardworking musicians. These guitars are for players who push their guitars to the fullest every night on stage and who demand real professional quality instruments, both functionally and visually. It's crafted by a high skilled luthier to Prestige model quality standards at the Ibanez Premium factory.
The punchy American basswood body has made from Premium-grade quilted maple top with a high transparency clear coat and matching headstock. The thin and fast Wizard Premium 7 neck has specially rounded Premium fret edges for smooth play and comfortable neck grip. Custom wound DIMarzio IBZ-7 pickups with 5-way switching offer the hot, molten clarity you desire for precise, tight riffing while the Ibanez “Edge-Zero II-7” tremolo and “ZPS 3” offer great tuning stability and smooth arming for dive-bombs and flutters.
The Premium Treatment
Hand-Rolled Fret Edges
This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck. Generally a feature of guitars costing thousands more, our luthiers round each fret edge by hand. Why? Grab a finger position and slide it quickly up and down the neck: notice that there's nothing there to slow you down.
Edge Zero II-7 Tremolo
The Zero Point system makes tuning a breeze and holds tune over the course of lengthy performances, even if a string breaks. The Edge-Zero II bridge with ZPS3Fe. Installation of the Zero Point System in the Edge Zero II makes tuning easier and faster as well as providing stable tuning for long performances, all while maintaining smooth tremolo playing. Loss of tuning is kept to a minimum, even when a string breaks. For players that prefer a full floating system, simply remove the stop bar.
5-Piece Wizard Premium Neck
The thin and fast Wizard neck on RG Premium models is following the same playability and comfort on its Prestige counterpart. Seasoned maple with walnut substrates gives the Wizard its stability.
Stud Bold Locks
The more solidly each component is anchored, the greater a guitar's sustain. These stud bolts contain inner set screws that wed the bridge to the body, maximizing string vibration.
DiMarzio IBZ-7 Humbuckers with ceramic magnets were designed especially for Ibanez and are voiced to harness the drop-tuned harmonica richness of 7-string with power and clarity. The overall tone is harmonically rich and layered, as well as easily adjusted to a variety of musical needs. The tone is vivid but easy to control to your sonic requirement.
Includes gig bag.

Comments about Ibanez RG927QM Premium Electric Guitar:
don't let the "premium" aspect of this fool you. It's the same trees they use on every other Ibanez and are just lies. No two guitars sound the same even if you have the same strings , match wood and hardware. Put simply you're getting tricked into paying more than you should for this piece of junk.
My friend got one of these in and it lasted him not even a month before he returned it. The bridge was low quality and this is someone I taught how to do guitar maitenance on so it says something , by the 3rd time he went to the guitar shop he just ended up returning it and giving them a bit more money towards a prestiege and couldn't be happier now. But then again he's an ibanez fan boy.
basswood = beginner guitars. You can get a 50-100$ guitar on here made of basswood , swap everything out and still be under the high price tag of this guitar. The only thing magical about wizard necks is they make your tone disappear so this isn't a very versatile guitar , just maybe shredding with the odd chord or two involved. But hey you get dimarzios that right there is a sales pitch! because 90% of the guys I know who play ibanez just run to dimarzio the second they buy their new useless ibanez. The way they manufactuer their guitars is similar to cars. Go with something with alder , mahogany , ash or something along those lines and you'll see a big improvement in tone. This also has ugly inlays I don't get how anyone likes.
on the plus side..
it's got a bound rosewood fretboard which means they glue it tighter to the neck. Pro series jackson guitars and certain LTD models feature this and it makes a world of difference in tone, it's more resonant which I liked. It doesn't have a useless middle pickup, instead you get that same 5 way switch to coiltap the pickups. The neck is 5 piece for added strength in case you can't play djent and jump on the neck. Some people like quilted maple but I find it boring.
ways to make this guitar better? well if you're stuck with it.
an original floyd rose unless a 7 string original edge exists, grover tuners , bournes potentiometers. Too bad we couldn't wave a wand and make this neckthrough and change basswood to something more suitable.
all in all get this used on a local site , full retail price for this is atrocious. You can get a pro series Jackson , a really nice BC Rich , Dean , a few excellent LTD guitars. Really the brand on the headstock means nothing how many guitars I've owned.
Comments about Ibanez RG927QM Premium Electric Guitar:
Recently got this Riff machine...I was planning to spend 2k+ on 7 string guitar but read some good reviews about this one...also my friend suggested to get this Ibanez in this price to see if 7 string is for you or not so, i ordered and I was surprised by Ibanez premium guitars quality...they are really really good no fret buzz and edge pro bridge stays in tune I am now considering upgrade my old Ibanez 6 string with Premium series as well.
only cons i would say the pickup sounds good but they are not great...i am going to upgrade pickups with dimarzio's LiquiFire and Crunch Lab and then this guitar will smoke.
