RG565-VK (Vampire Kiss)
Ibanez - Electric Guitar
Ibanez Genesis Collection RG565 delivers everything technical players love about the RG line, from its fast-playing Super Wizard neck and expressive Edge tremolo to its sleek looks and versatile pair of Infinity humbucking pickups. With a 5-way switch selector, you can explore high-octane humbucking tones, coil-split single-coil tones, and series/parallel options — there's more sonic range to explore here than some 3-pickup guitars offer. Complete with jumbo frets and an Edge tremolo system, the Ibanez Genesis Collection RG565 is a magnificent continuation of the RG's storied heritage.
INCREDIBLY FAST SUPER WIZARD NECK
The Genesis Collection RG565 takes that design to the next level with a 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard neck. You'll be able to execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, tapping licks, and hammer-ons with ease. Capping the Super Wizard neck is a 24-fret maple fretboard, loaded with jumbo frets that are perfect for big note bends. Beyond that, the Genesis Collection RG565 features a classic-style tilt neck joint with a stamped metal plate, rather than the sculpted All Access neck joint found on most modern RGs. If you crave the feel of a classic RG, then you'll love the RG565.
WIDE-RANGING INFINITY PICKUPS
With an Infinity V8 alnico humbucker in the bridge position and an Infinity R ceramic humbucker in the neck position, the Genesis Collection RG565 offers the sonic versatility the RG line is known for. Guitarists at Sweetwater are impressed with the pickup combinations offered by the 5-way selector switch. Position one gives you the bridge humbucker; position two combines both pickups, while also splitting them for single-coil tonality. Position three combines both pickups in humbucking mode. Position four selects the neck pickup and puts its coils in parallel configuration. Position five presents the neck pickup in series mode. The bottom line? There's a lot more range here than you may expect from a dual-humbucker guitar.
ROCK-SOLID EDGE TREMOLO
When it comes to maximum expressive potential, nothing beats the range of a double-locking tremolo — and the Ibanez Edge tremolo found in the Genesis Collection RG565 is one of the best. Manufactured for Ibanez by Gotoh, the Edge tremolo delivers reliable action and rock-solid tuning stability. The response is fast and precise, and the ultra-smooth feel of the low-profile saddles is perfect for palm muting.
