OVERVIEW

Japanese luthiery at its best.

As the crown jewel of the Ibanez line, the Prestige designation paints a vivid picture of the passion and pride of Japanese luthiery. These guitars, produced exclusively in Japan, have earned worldwide acclaim for their exemplary craftsmanship, superb quality and numerous innovations. Manifested here in the classic Ibanez RG format, the RG657MSK Prestige is an instrument worthy of its position as cornerstone of the Ibanez legacy.

The RG657MSK features a Mahogany body with a handsomely figured Silky Oak top. A Birdseye Maple fretboard and exclusive 5-piece Maple/Walnut Super Wizard High-Performance neck provide exceptional playability and rock solid stability even under the most extreme playing conditions.

DiMarzio Air Norton, True Velvet, and The Tone Zone pickups were chosen for the inspiring way they complement each other to create a wide pallet of tonal options that add fire and improve sustain, yet retain clarity. Wired through a 5-way selector switch, they can be combined in a variety of configurations that offer numerous tonal options. The masterpiece Edge bridge offers exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment, and playing comfort. 

Hardshell case included.

    Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige RG657MSK 6 string Electric Guitar:

    I have 31 electric guitars ranging from low end BC Rich to pretty good Gibsons. This is in the top 3 of the collection. Love the neck, the overall quality and the tone. The wider flat fretboard is different vs. the others but very comfortable and a lot of fun to play. Overall, blown away by the quality - even better looking in person vs. the online photos. If you are on the fence, I would say take the chance and give it a shot. Having a tough time putting the guitar down. That is a good sign.

      Comments about Ibanez RG Prestige RG657MSK 6 string Electric Guitar:

      In my experience there is still a substantial difference in the quality between Japanese-built guitars and Chinese, Indonesian, etc. This RG is a great example of Japanese craftsmanship. I am continually astonished at how well it stays in tune after using the vibrato arm. Neck feels great -- smooth as glass.
