Ibanez RG2550ZL Limited Edition Left Handed Guitar

Good news shredders – Ibanez are bringing back the RG2550ZL as a limited edition left handed model!  This Prestige model will be available in two colors in limited numbers, so don’t delay in snapping one up if you like what you see.

At the moment I’ve only spotted this guitar on the Ibanez UK website, so it could be another European exclusive.  You may also be interested to know that the more affordable RG350DXZL has also appeared as a limited edition model on the UK site after previously only being available in the USA.  I’ve got to say that I find it a little odd that the RG350 gets a matching headstock whereas the Prestige white model does not…

Wizard HP Neck

Refined fast Prestige Wizard neck offers better grip, feel and tone – 18mm width at 1st fret and 20mm at the 12th. Edge-Zero Tremolo
The Edge-Zero has a sharp knife-edge for extremely accurate tremolo playing. This tremolo also uses Ibanez innovations to keep string action constant and the bridge surface smooth. The specially designed arm socket prevents unnecessary wobble from the arm while providing full control over the arm’s torque.

ZPS3 Zero Point System
The ZPS3 is the next stage of zero point systems. Made of lightweight Duralumin, the addition of two outer springs makes the guitar easier to tune and provides much greater tuning stability. In fact, the other strings will stay in tune even if you break a string. If you prefer a full floating tremolo setup, simply remove the stop bar.

Collet Knob
Designed for great looks and engineered to avoid the risk of coming off while you’re playing. The non-slip functionality gives this collet knob accurate axis rotation and control for any player.

Barless Top-Lok
The Barless Top-Lok eliminates the need for a retainer bar to maintain string tension. Through its simple design, it holds the correct angle for the strings without one. The metal-injection molding process means that all the edges remain smooth, so you won’t hurt your hands.

    I’m going to have to get one shipped to me in Canada somehow. Gonna keep an eye out for any vendors posting online allowing for international shipping.

    Either that or I’m flying out, I want this.

    Is it the equivalent of the RG550 they used to sell 25 years ago or so?
    I had one, it was great but not ‘£1000’ great (assuming that’s roughly the price of this 2550).
    From the specs I see it doesn’t have the Edge trem and the neck is 1mm thicker than the original Wizard (17mm at the first fret).

    I played one of these 4 years ago, big regret that I didn’t buy it at the time!!! I do have to wonder if it’s worth the extra over the RG370 or RG350? Does anyone have any experience or opinions?
