For guitarists looking to distinguish themselves from the fray with a unique style and sound of their own, the Roadcore series is a perfect choice. While maintaining access to the tonal options immortalized through the decades by rock’s pantheon, Roadcore offers a style and attitude for those who want to take the road less traveled.
Visually, the RC520 creates a vintage vibe with an asymmetrical double-cutaway body, dual binding, a gold logo on its headstock, vintage oval buttons for its machine heads, and an Ivory-colored pickguard. At its heart is a Mahogany body combined with a round, Maple bolt-on neck that delivers unparalleled clarity and a biting tone when needed.
The Rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays and medium frets offers comfort for players of all styles. Hone your sound with its through-body stringing and Ibanez-exclusive Tight-Tune bridge, both of which improve sustain and tuning stability while facilitating string changing. This guitar provides a wide palette of tonal options with its 2 exclusively designed custom Core-Tone humbucker pickups, a Metal-covered neck pickup, and a 3-way selector.
