Way back in June of last year, Ibanez hinted on their Facebook page of a new left handed Prestige series guitar. And now, it finally looks as if this model will be coming our way!
I had guessed that the new model would be a RG655ML, and I was pretty close! What we’re actually getting is a RG655L-CBM, which is the same guitar with a rosewood fingerboard instead of maple. Let’s take a look…
Ibanez RG655L-CBM Prestige Left Handed Guitar
For outstanding shredability, the Prestige RG655 gives you an alarmingly fast Super Wizard HP neck and a rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets. Ibanez loaded the RG655 with an original – and legendary – Edge Tremolo. A trio of DiMarzio pickups provide you with a wide selection of tones that are perfect for rock and metal. The guitar is topped off with a stunning Cobalt Blue Metallic finish with matching headstock.
