Question: What is the difference between the S series and the RG series?

The RG has contours too but it is very much designed to feel like it's right in front of you. It has a thicker, more slab-like body.

Ibanez S Series guitars are comfortably able to perform almost any stule of music thanks to the wide variety of sounds available from them. Some S Series guitars, like the Iron Label model SIX6FDFM, is clearly meant ofr heavy and extreme playing but others, such as the fusion-friendly Prestige S6570Q is a great all rounder thanks to its H-S-H pickup configuration and locking tremolo.
