The Ibanez Prestige line features some of the finest electric guitars the company has ever produced. Originally introduced in the mid-90's, the Prestige line represented the top-of-the-line Ibanez production models, guitars crafted with high quality components and materials, built by the some of the company's best luthiers, often featuring unique features and finishes.
While the line initially focused on the super-Strat style RG, or Roadstar design, favored by heavy metal and shred guitarists, Prestige models now include a variety of body styles, signature axes, and several basses. Typical high-end features of a Prestige guitar include a 5-piece ultra-fast, super-thin Super Wizard neck, Zero Point whammy systems, and specially designed pickups. Take the RG3250MG, for example, a lethal shredding machine equipped with three screaming DiMarzio pickups - two humbuckers and a single coil, in HSH configuration; the Super Wizard neck with titanium reinforcement bars and 24 jumbo frets; and a Zero Point bridge with ZPS3 spring system for radical whammy bar heroics with incredible tuning stability. The S5470Q Prestige features a mahogany body with a gorgeous quilted maple arched top, Super Wizard HP neck, and a Zero Resistance tremolo setup with ball bearings, for super-smooth whammy action. The RGD2127 is a 7-string dream come true, designed for truly massive drop-tune tone with optimal action, with a slightly longer 26.5" scale length on the 24-fret Wizard-7 neck, Tight End R 7 bridge, and custom designed humbucking pickups to deliver enhanced low-end frequencies that really rattle those bones! The V87 Custom humbucker at the bridge features alnico magnets for rich harmonics and plenty of clarity in the lower registers, while the V77 neck pickup has ceramic magnets for a smooth, warm tone with wide dynamic range, whether you're screaming, crunching, or playing clean. The RG2627Z is another 7-string tone monster, with a pair of specially-voiced EMG 707 humbuckers and an Edge Zero 7 bridge for 7-string whammy madness.
If that's not enough for you, the 8-string down-tuned RG2228 boasts a 5-piece maple/wenge Wizard Prestige neck with a 27" scale length, a pair of EMG 808 humbuckers, and double-locking FX Edge III fixed bridge for maximum tuning stability while you're shaking the rafters. Prestige Signature guitars feature axes designed to the specs of some of today's top players, like the Andy Timmons Signature Prestige model, with a custom-designed fretboard profile, Wilkinson/Gotoh VSVG tremolo bridge, and three killer-sounding DiMarzio pickups - dual single-coils in the neck and middle positions, and a humbucker at the bridge. For bassists, Ibanez offers plenty to choose from, including the ATK1200 Prestige, with a CAP Sonic Arch neck pickup and CAP double humbucker at the bridge, and an ATK N3 3-band EQ; or the SR5000 series, including the SR5000E 4-string model, the SR5005E 5-string, and the SR5006E 6-string, all crafted with a mahogany body and stunning wenge top, abalone and pearl oval fretboard inlays, and Bartolini Custom pickups with Power Curve III EQ for incredible tonal versatility.
