The best guitar I have ever played, period.

GoWithTheFloat, 30.03.2018
I have played guitar for about ten years and have gone through various models and goals with my playing. I have own/borrowed several guitars for band rehearsal, gigs (between 10 to 500 people) or just for practicing to see what i like. I am very picky, and have a hard time settling for a specific type of guitar that feels "off" in the slightest way and therefore switch a lot. Then I bought this.

The quality of this guitar is what first impressed me. Everything from the tuning stability, to the knobs are all crafted with care. I normally get sweaty hands during a gig, and the knobs and five-way switch are all extremely easy to grip and use regardless. One downside I can find is the trem bar, which can be quite difficult to put in, and sometimes becomes a bit clunky or rough to turn and therefore can be in the way when using the controls below it if your playing requires fast volume swelling or something similar. All of the options with the switch are very useful. I play many genres of music and none of the sounds this guitar can create have disappointed me so far. This thing can make everything soft blues to extreme metal sound good!

But most importantly, it feels like nothing else I've ever played. The thickness and scale of the neck, the fret height and the smooth transition from string to bridge all together makes playing this guitar as easy as spreading butter over some toast. Your hand can just slide up and down the neck without effort, yet it feels firm when you pluck a single note or try a large bend. It has incredible sustain, and it is very easy to reach all over the fretboard. It is also very light and flat, which certainly helps when playing longer gigs as other guitars can become quite heavy.

In conclusion, this is the best guitar I've ever owned. It is of an extremely high quality built by professionals, sounds very good with extreme versatility, and feels like an extension of your own mind while playing. The only downside I might have is the trem bar, which of course is not required to be put in, or I just perceive it my way because i like to strum quite near the bridge pickup. I recommend this guitar for everyone from professional musicians to beginners, and look forward to playing it effortlessly for many years to come.

Class instrument

Lechi89, 02.05.2018
The Ibanez RG652AHM-NGB Prestige is my second guitar, having slowly reached its tonal limits with my Strat, who accompanied me from the beginning.

1. Appearance, workmanship and playability

The RG652AHM in Nebular Green Burst is visually a force and technically a universal talent (more on that later). The workmanship is consistently impeccable, as one might expect with a Japanese instrument of this price range. The apparently untreated neck is very good in the hand and offers a first-class feel. In particular, the back of the neck is very supple and allows for quick and safe layer changes. Very pleasant is also the rounded transition from the body to the neck, as even the last frets can still be achieved.

2. Mechanics, pickups and sound

The Gotoh-Locking-Tuner and the Edge-Tremolo-Bridge make this instrument absolutely voice-stable. I play at least one to two hours a day and have to retune at most once a week - even if the vibrato is used, the mood is maintained.
The DiMarzio pickups have plenty of steam and sustain - just what I was looking for. I personally like the sound very well; centered on the bridge and a bit lighter on the neck. The switching variants are also interesting: (1) only bridge, (2) bridge and neck, with only the inner coil is active (sounds like two single coils), (3) bridge and neck humbucker,? Bold? and center-weighted, (4) neck only, both coils being taken off in parallel and (5) neck only. Position four in particular quickly proved to be my favorite for clean sounds - the sound comes very close to that of a single coil. For Overdrive and Distortion I would not recommend this position, as it has less output, as if, for example, the neck humbucker in series is active (item 5).
No sound samples are available on the product page of this instrument yet, but adequate sound examples can be found on the fixed bridge model (Ibanez RG652AHMFX-NGB). The sound examples give the actual sound quite well - to what extent the vibrato system affects the sound, however, I can not assess.

3. delivery

Despite delays in delivery and repeated postponement of the delivery date, Thomann was able to get the delivery started earlier than expected - great! The instrument arrived perfectly tuned - octave over 24 frets - with me and could be played immediately after a short tuning. Ibanez also supplies a hardcase with padding as well as a handy multitool with all the tools needed to adjust the instrument.

4. My conclusion:

The waiting and saving has paid off in any case. This guitar is just fun and definitely addictive. Optical and sonic, this instrument has inspired me from the beginning and despite clear metal genes convinced the guitar by its versatility.
