The new Genesis Collection is made in Japan and carries with it the same pioneering features and precise craftsmanship of the original RG.
The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. Whether you favour a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument.
