Wizard 5pc Maple/Walnut neck

Fast, flat and slim 5pc Maple/Walnut neck.

Premium Fret Edge Treatment

Our luthiers' insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premium's hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.

CAP-VM pickups

Ibanez Premium guitars produce the tone of great diversity, from pure clean to aggressive distortion sound with CAP-VM1 and VM2 pickups which work in great combination that enables such versatile characters. Also, minimum sound loss by adopting OFC coil.

Tight-End R bridge

The Tight End R bridge is perfectly designed to anchor with rigidness and accuracy.
