The Ibanez RG family leads the way in terms of performance, always cutting edge, always powerful and flexible enough to suit any style. RG Premium guitars like the RG970WQMZ benefit from many of the same high end features as the Prestige range but at a price that suits your every day, hard working guitarist.

DiMarzio® ibz pickups were made by DiMarzio® specially for Ibanez.
