Styled in a desert sun yellow finish, the Ibanez RG Genesis Collection RG550 is an electric guitar with a double-cutaway basswood body and a Super Wizard five-piece maple/walnut neck. This neck, outfitted with a 25.5" scale, sports a maple fingerboard with black dot inlays, as well as 24 jumbo frets for all your shrieking, shredding needs.

For electronics, the guitar is outfitted with a V7 humbucking pickup in the neck and a V8 humbucker in the bridge. However, sandwiched in between these pickups is a lone single-coil, adding a more pointed, searing edge to your tonal configurations. A volume knob and a tone knob are on hand to help you shape your sound, while the 5-way pickup selector allows you to access humbucking and single-coil tones. If you like to dive-bomb and whammy your way into the ears of your listeners, then you're in luck as the Japanese-made RG550 sports an Edge Tremolo bridge.

Super Wizard HP Maple Neck

The neck for shredders, this nick boasts 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 19mm at the 12th.

Edge Tremolo Bridge

The Edge bridge offers exceptional tuning stability, precise intonation adjustment, and playing comfort.

H/S/H Configuration

The RG can dial in any tone, from crystal clear to searing and nasty, thanks to its V7 humbucking neck pickup, S1 single-coil middle pickup, and a V8 humbucker in the bridge.
