  • Description

    The Ibanez Prestige guitars are precision-crafted in Japan by some of the most advanced, highly skilled luthiers in the world, keeping three principles in mind—Precision, Performance, and Playability. The Ibanez Prestige line combines revolutionary design and construction with old-world Japanese craftsmanship and high-tech manufacturing techniques to give you an instrument of supreme quality. Incorporating ideas and suggestions from musicians worldwide, the Prestige line of guitars are a stunning choice for the discerning guitarist looking for a high-performance guitar with great looks, amazing tone and incomparable playability.

    The Ibanez RG852MBP Prestige blends shred-ready performance with killer style and the massive low-end punch, power and growl that's demanded by metal players and hard rockers. The legendary double cutaway body is made from basswood and capped with a gorgeous poplar burl top. The body of the RG852MBP comes handsomely dressed in a Ghost Fleet Blue Burst finish that highlights the distinctive grain of the poplar burl top.

    The 27"-scale Ultra-8 5-piece maple/wenge neck offers maximum stability while the sleek, fast neck profile allows for incredible comfort and high-speed shredding. An awesome complement to the uniquely-grained top, the neck carries a stunning birdseye maple fingerboard. For superb playability and an incredibly smooth feel in your fretting hand, the fingerboard comes fitted with 24 jumbo frets and has been treated with Ibanez's exclusive Prestige fret edge treatment.

    Under the hood, the RG852MBP comes loaded up with a pair of DiMarzio PAF 8 humbuckers that are specially voiced for the extended 8-sting frequency range. These pickups dish out loads of classic humbucker tones, and when you crank up the distortion all the way to 11, you can still hear every note with amazing clarity. The 5-way pickup selector offers incredible sonic flexibility while the no-nonsense Master Volume and Tone controls allow for on-the-fly sound shaping.

    The Ibanez RG852MBP features high-performance cosmo black hardware, which includes a set of Gotoh Magnum Lock Machineheads and a Gibraltar Standard II-8 fixed bridge. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
