As well as its acoustic guitar offerings for the year – the AAD50 and AAD50CE – Ibanez has now debuted six redesigned, revamped and rejuvenated electric guitars in its RG Premium and AZ Premium lineups.

Across the board, both ranges have been treated to a wealth of fresh appointments, with all three of the RG electrics featuring, for the first time ever, a newly refined neck-thru construction – a spec that’s been favored over the bolt-on construction of flagship RGs.
