New fixed bridge Prestige models launched 09-Feb-10
Here's the Ibanez press release...
Sometimes keeping things simple is the way to go. New for 2010, the first RG Prestige guitars with a fixed bridge are geared for players who prefer a more straightforward set-up. These sonic delights are high-quality Japan-made, with the same 5-piece maple/walnut Wizard Prestige comfort necks as other RGs, with a more affordable price.
RG Fixed models are locked down with the Tight-End bridge. Saddles are firmly locked onto the base plate for maximum string vibration, and remain perfectly linear during intonation adjustment for the most accurate set-up. Also, the top side of the bridge is smooth finished, so if you play hard, the Tight-End bridge will forgive you and your hands.
RG Series guitars are some of the most recognizable and distinctive in the Ibanez line. Forged in the fires of '80s metal, these high-performance machines are built with speed and strength in mind. All are precision-crafted, with mahogany or basswood bodies that provide the perfect balance of crushing lows and singing highs.
RG Prestige Fixed Bridge models are available in Night Crow (RG1451NC) or Aluminum Gray (RG1451AG). Pricing and Availability:
