Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we have the new Ibanez RG550-RF Genesis Collection RG in Desert Sun Yellow.

Our Tony is a bit of a demon when it comes to Ibanez guitars, having grown up and perfected his Steve Vai licks on RG Series guitars - his little face lit up with delight when he unpacked this Desert Yellow RG550 - it looks fast even when it's standing still!

Please note, this was an extremely hard guitar to photograph (because it's soo fast) some images make it look slightly orange - it is most definately red!

RG series guitars have always been a premium instrument built purely for performance. With a lightweight Basswood body make it a very comfortable guitar to play, especially live,  and you can expect a full-bodied sound thanks to the wood's balanced tonal qualities.

A bolt-on 5pc Maple/Walnut neck will provide a snappy response with plenty of mid-range projection. The notoriously thin Super Wizard neck profile will make fast passages a breeze to play; fitted with jumbo frets to offer you maximum playability up and down the fretboard.

Ibanez's V7 and V8 humbuckers (in the neck and bridge positions respectively) will handle high doses of gain without any issues. Giving you lots of saturation and top-end clarity, these are perfect for heavier genres of music. The S1 single-coil in the middle position however will let you attain S-style tones when used on its own, ideal for playing clean chords or arpeggios with.

A double-locking Edge tremolo system offers incredible tuning stability, no matter how extreme your divebombs or flutters might be. With all hardware appointments finished in black, this super-sleek looking guitar will inspire you to just pick it up and shred!
