The RG970WBWZ Premium features a beautiful burl walnut top with American basswood body, DiMarzio IBZ pickups, 5 piece Wizard maple/walnut neck, Zero Point System, easily adjustable spring system and Premium Fret Edge Treatment. Includes a case.
Available in Walnut Burst.
Wenge/Bubinga 5pc wizard neck
Coupling Wenge with Bubinga has made the neck strong and stable.
Premium Fret Edge Treatment
Our luthiers' insane attention to detail is evidenced by the Premium's hand-rolled fret edges. This slow, demanding process makes for a smooth, fast playing neck.
DiMarzio® ibz pickups
DiMarzio® ibz pickups were made by DiMarzio® specially for Ibanez.
The tone is vivid but easy to control to your sonic requirement.
Edge-Zero II w/ZPS3Fe
The Zero Point System in the Edge-Zero II makes tuning easier and faster as well as providing stable tuning for long performances, all while maintaining smooth tremolo playing. Engineered to remove all points of friction, ZPS is the smoothest Ibanez Back Stop ever. Even when a string breaks loss of tuning is minimized. For players that prefer a full floating system, simply remove the stop bar. The innovative use of an additional outer pair of springs provides easier tuning and noticeably greater tuning stability than the traditional floating tremolo.
ZPS (Zero Point System)
No friction points make the ZPS the smoothest Ibanez Back Stop ever.
An additional outer pair of springs provides easier tuning and better tuning stability than the traditional floating tremolo-plus the other strings will remain in tune if a string breaks.
Switchable To Floating Trem
One of the best ZPS features! Just remove the stop bar and the ZPS easily changes to floating trem operation.
Manually Adjustable Spring System
Spring tension can be quickly set by thumb. There's no need for a hex wrench.

Great Axe Top ShelfBy: Steve Holdsworth on 19 May 2018Truly a very nice guitar had one now for about 2 years although the only negative was the set up from the box, other than that I have nearly worn it out stays in tune and I dont even need to lock the nut, great sounding pickups and a nice neck hard to put down
