Ibanez has just announced two new left handed RGs for the USA market! Keep reading to find out more about the RG652KFXL Prestige and the RG721RWL Premium!
It’s worth noting that these guitars are only on the USA Ibanez website for the moment, so they could very well be exclusive to that region. However, the RG721RWL has previously been on sale in Europe and certain other regions, so those not in the States may still be able to get their hands on one (most likely used).
Ibanez RG652KFXL Prestige Left Handed Guitar
We haven’t seen a left handed Prestige from Ibanez for quite some time, so it’s nice to finally see one back in the range. The new RG652KFXL features the usual basswood body with a beautiful Australian Blackwood top and matching headstock veneer. It will definitely be available from our friends over at Xtreme Lefty Guitars in Florida.
