I truly enjoy this guitar! But I’ve changed direction in my playing and have two other guitars so some of them has to go. So to someone’s benefit this is the one to go. I bought it brand new but dont have a lot of hours on it. It still has the plastic protection sheet on the smaller cover on the back that covers the wiring!
Hoping that someone will really appreciate it and play it more than I have.
Fresh set of Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings on it as well.
Here is Guitar Center’s write-up on this beast:
The Ibanez RG5EX1 electric guitar’s pickups and pickup placement provide the hard-edged cutting tone needed for heavy rock.
Since 1987, many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups and flat, fast necks, the RG crunched its way to classic status.
As heavy as it rocks, the RG5EX1 guitar is made of basswood, a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is between alder and mahogany in sound character. 24 jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording and the Edge III tremolo bridge lets you dive-bomb all night long while keeping tuning tight. Total tonal choice is provided 5-way switching of an Ibanez Infinity 4 bridge humbucker with an alnico magnet that is warm sounding with good harmonics, an Infinity 3 neck humbucker with a ceramic magnet producing dynamic sound for rhythm chording, and an Infinity Single3 single-coil with an alnico magnet for traditional sounds with high output.
