The impetus for the RG Premium project came as the result of numerous requests for a guitar that offered premium specs at a reduced price. Close collaboration between the Japanese Prestige guitar factory and Ibanez paved the way for experimentation and, ultimately, the realization of the Premium process — a process that calls for immeasurable attention to quality and detail by seasoned Ibanez luthiers.
The line debuts with the release of the RG920QM, featuring a richly quilted maple top and American basswood body. Coupled with the sleek Wizard Premium 5-piece Maple/Walnut neck, bound rosewood fretboard, offset pearl dot inlays, and Premium edged Jumbo frets, the RG920QM provides absolute playing comfort. The 920 also features a newly designed Edge-Zero II bridge with Zero Point system for better tuning stability and longer sustain, and specially designed DiMarzio IBZ pickups, making it a truly distinguished instrument.
Also in the line is the RG870. The 870 is the “workhorse” of the Premium range and features the same high standard of materials and craftsmanship, but with new high-output Ibanez CAP VM pickups and a sexy high-gloss solid black finish.
All Premium guitars come with their own gig bag.
