Ibanez RG565 Genesis Collection – Emerald Green – Soft Case Included

$ 1395.00

Hello and thanks for looking!

For sale I have an Ibanez RG565-EG Genesis guitar in fantastic condition. This one sports the “Emerald Green” finish and looks incredible. The matching colored inlays and reverse headstock really make this guitar a stand out visually. It will include a generic soft case as well as the original tremolo bar.

These guitars are now discontinued and are becoming increasingly rare. As you would expect from a Japanese made Ibanez, the build quality is as good as any. The neck profile in particular is one of the very best I’ve ever played. This guitar also features the legendary Original Edge Tremolo which is in my opinion the best tremolo design we’ve seen.

The guitar looks mint at a glance but there a few minor defects, namely a hairline neck pocket crack (pic 22, common for bolt-ons), a small hairline scratch on the headstock (pic 23), and a small paint blemish beneath the clear coat that came from the factory (pic 24). I try to make defects as unflattering as possible for disclosure’s sake but these are all difficult to see unless you’re searching.

The controls/electronics work flawlessly, the neck is straight, and the truss rod adjusts smoothly. The guitar is currently in standard tuning with Ernie Ball 9-42 (2223). Action is low, tremolo is level, and intonation is on.

I purchased this guitar new in 2022 and am the only owner. It is an exceptional guitar and I really lament parting with it but I have had a lot of things come up recently and am selling most of my guitar collection.
