Ibanez Prestige RG5170B in Black. New for 2021, featuring Fishman Fluence pickups, Luminlay side dots, Stainless Steel frets, Super Wizard HP Maple/Wenge neck, Ebony Fingerboard, Gold/Black hardware, Lo Pro Edge tremolo, and more.

The Prestige series represents the combination of cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and old-world Japanese craftsmanship. We've added some new and exciting tweaks to the RG5000s to attract the modern-day players who are always trying something new. Develop your range, tone and technique with these high performance Prestige guitars.

To create guitars that are beyond the best, Ibanez carefully developed the modern specifications. The RG5000s feature Stainless Steel frets for a bright tone, long durability and smoothness, a rigid 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck; a beautiful wood grain fretboard, Made-in-Japan Luminlay side dots and the most cutting-edge pickups.

The RG5170B-BK has a superb appearance thanks to the combination of the Silver Flat finish, white pearloid binding and gold hardware. It also features a Macassar Ebony fretboard, Super Wizard HP neck and the meticulous Prestige fret edge treatment provide extra-smooth playing. The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker and Single-Width are some of the most exciting and talked-about pickups in today’s metal scene. The pickups provide an aggressive tone and powerful attack without the noise. The Voicing switch allows the pickups to have a modern, active high-output sound or a crisp, clean and fluid sound. The Lo-Pro Edge bridge offers maximum playing comfort due to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. A hard-shell case is included.

All our Ibanez guitars come with a FREE professional "Deluxe" setup tailored to your individual tuning and string gauge preferences. The deluxe setup includes: action, intonation, trem angle, truss rod adjustment, smoothing out fret-edges if needed, addressing any nut or bridge shim issues if needed, polishing the frets if needed, as well as fingerboard conditioning. In other words -- the works. All from our experienced luthier/tech who does incredible work and understands what today's players demand from their instruments. 

Of course, for those of you who want an untouched, new-in-box guitar, we can accomodate you too. Our deluxe setup is completely optional, but absolutely free and highly recommended. We also offer optional pickup selections and other special requests. Give us a call at 508-921-9973 or contact us through the website for any questions.
