Classic & Modern

The Ibanez RG 565 is a member of the Genesis Collection, a range of high-performance guitars that are crafted in Japan. If you’re looking for an agile guitar that can help you pull off the most daring techniques with ease, you’ve come to the right place! The Genesis Collection pays tribute to the incredible legacy of the RG range, combining elements that made those instruments so iconic with modern appointments and updates.

Top Construction

At the core of the RG565 model is its Basswood body, a tonewood which is often used by Ibanez for its light weight and warm, balanced tone. Super slick playability is catered for by the slim Super Wizard 5-piece neck, which is adorned with 24 jumbo frets. It’s crafted from Maple and Walnut for enhanced top-end and rock-solid stability.

Powerful Tone

The Ibanez RG 565 is equipped with dual humbuckers, a blade-style Infinity R in the neck and a V8 in the bridge. These high output pickups are perfect for screaming leads, with precise clarity and articulation at the highest of gain settings. Using the 5-way pickup selector, you can coax a wealth of tones from this guitar – giving you plenty of tonal versatility if you need it.

Expressive Playability

Hardware-wise, the Ibanez RG-565 is a true workhorse guitar. Tuning-stability and extreme bends are covered by the Gotoh machine heads and the Ibanez Edge double-locking tremolo system. The Edge trem provides a lot of scope for expressive vibrato and outlandish effects, letting divebomb or squeal without having to worry about going out-of-tune!
