If you’re searching for a tame guitar, then look elsewhere. The Ibanez Prestige RG5121 is anything but. Its African mahogany body is resonant as all get out, supplying you with a solid tonal base to work from. Beyond that, its Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers churn out aggressive yet articulate high-gain tones that are sure to impress. You’ll experience a major speed boost, too, thanks to a comfortable 5-piece Super Wizard HP neck and fast-playing Macassar ebony fretboard. Tuning stability is rock solid, thanks to a Gibraltar II hardtail bridge, and Gotoh locking tuners make string changes effortless. Luminlay side dots and an attractive satin finish round out the RG5121’s prestigious features.
The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers in the Prestige RG5121 deliver the most sought-after humbucking tones, from modern active to high-output humbucking. Unlike most wire-wound models, Fluence pickups manage to serve up this massive tone arsenal without noise or inductance issues. On top of that, Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups provide you with your choice of two distinctly different voices for each pickup. You can change the voicing via the push-pull function on the volume knob.
