About Ibanez RG550 Genesis Collection
Introduced in 1987 the Ibanez RG550 is one of the quintessential 80's rockers. Descended from Steve Vai's Jem but dropping some of the more eccentric details like the vine inlay and the monkey grip, the RG550 had a sleek, aggressive, and eye-catching look when it was released. Yet today it still turns heads just like it did in the 80's, with it's bright colours and punchy midrange sound.
The Ibanez RG550 with its mean black pickguard, locking tremolo and range of louder-than-loud finishes is always ready to shout. This is an axe straight out of the gunslinging Sunset Strip scene of the mid to late 80s, complete with a Super Wizard 5 piece neck for unmatched shred-ability and a set of specially wired Ibanez V-series pickups to amplify it all. Although the V series humbuckers can scream and shout all day with all manner of tones, combined with a single coil in the middle, the RG550 doesn't just have surprising versatility, it trumps much of its competition when it comes to tonal variety. Chunky rhythms, searing leads, spanky single coil tones, it's all here.
Made in Japan to ensure the highest quality it's hard to beat the Ibanez RG550 when it comes to superstrats.
