A dream guitar for southpaws shredders!

The left-handed Ibanez RG5EX1 electric guitar has a basswood body with a bound 24-fret, 3-piece Wizard II neck for fast and effortless shredding. Aesthetic touches include sharktooth fingerboard inlays and black hardware.

Infinity Pickups
The Infinity 3 (INF3) humbucking pickup has a ceramic magnet and delivers dynamic tones for chording and rhythm. The Infinity Single 3 (INFS3) is a single-coil pickup with an Alcico magnet and has a traditional-sound with the higher output demanded by modern music. It is designed to work with the humbuckers in the split position. The Infinity 4 is a humbucking pickup with an Alnico magnet and has a brilliant tone for lead work. It's warm and generates good harmonics.

Edge III tremolo
The Edge III tremolo has lower profile fine tuners for better palm comfort and provides strength and extraordinary tuning stability even under the most demanding playing conditions. The diabolical, double-locking Edge III bridge lets you get into radical tremolo territory while retaining total tuning stability.

For two decades, the legion of Ibanez RG warriors has grown like a virus, thrusting the RG guitar to the head of the metal pack. The Ibanez RG's fast, flat necks, rabid pickups, and double-locking tremolos deliver demonically charged sounds that go far beyond the world of mere mortals.

Good guitar

Comments about Ibanez RG5EX1 Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

Well, this RG is the best guitar I've own in the RG series. It has minor issues like bad setup from factory, and a little fret buzz in the 17th fret on the first string. But nothing to worry about. I mean it's just not perfect. I will use it to perform live and in recordings without a doubt. Ohhh I must say that I change the original pickups to Seymour Duncan Distortion.
