Description: 

The Ibanez RG521 QS (Quilted Sapele) is a rare Ibanez RG guitar made especially for some (north) European markets. The guitar is made in Japan at the Fujigen factory. The Ibanez RG521 is produced in a very limited quantity. It's rare because it features a Gotoh Wilkinson VS100G tremolo. As opposed to the RG series usual Floyd Rose style tremolo.  The guitar is known to be available in Transparant Black (which looks more brownish) and Tranparant blue. Other features are

  • Mahogany body
  • Ibanez V7 + Ibanez V8 humbuckers
  • Quilted Sapele top

The information about the neck is lacking. Some forum members mention the neck feels between a wizard I and wizard 2 neck. The Ibanez RG 520 QS which is similar but has a Floyd Rose like vibrato features the Super Wizard neck (with the bubinga strip). But the pictures of the Ibanez RG521 QS doesn't suggest it has the bubinga strip.
