Ibanez RG550-DY, Genesis Collection RG Style Guitar, Desert Sun Yellow Finish, HSH Pickup Configuration, Locking Tuners, Edge Tremolo Bridge and Black Hardware

Previously only available in Japan, the Ibanez Genesis Collection is now heading to the UK for 2018, and we couldn't be more pleased here at PMT. These great guitars help you to re-experience some of the things that helped to catapult Ibanez to the forefront of the world's hard rock and metal scene, and they're a genuine pleasure to experience!

Built to Shred, Made to Last

For the RG550-DY, Ibanez have brought you a throwback model that looks and plays like those classic late 80s/early 90s Ibanez superstrats that helped make the company such a big hit. Featuring a V7/S1/V8 humbucker and single coil pickup configuration, Edge Tremolo bridge, tilt neck joint (with stamped metal plate), a lightweight basswood body, Super Wizard neck, and Maple fretboard with black dot inlays, the RG550 is a hard-rockers dream come true!

High Grade Electronics

With a set of tried-and-tested Ibanez V7 and V8 humbuckers, combined with an Ibanez S1 single coil pickup, the RG550-DY can offer you a huge variety of tones.

The V7 is tight, but bright for a neck humbucker, providing you with a dynamic playing experience that's perfect for chording and rhythm work.

With the V8 you get a warm yet articulate lead pickup, with plenty of enhanced overtones, and great harmonics without excessive brightness.

Add into the mix an Ibanez S1 single coil pickup in the mid-position, and you have yourself even more tonal combinations to play around with!

Super Wizard Neck

Ibanez's legendary super-thin Wizard neck has been given an upgrade for the Genesis Collection. Still featuring the ultra-playability of the original, the Super Wizard is specially constructed with road-tested durability, ensuring consistent performances night after night.

Edge Tremolo

The original Ibanez Edge Tremolo/Bridge unit has long been a favourite of some of the world's top guitarsts. This legendary bridge offers you the kind of feel and tone that many guitarists have built their successful careers upon, and after just a few minutes of playing the guitar it's easy to see why. Whether you want to go crazy with the divebombs, or just add a slight shimmer to your music, this excellent bridge delivers without compromising your guitar's tuning stability!
