The Ibanez RC520 from the Roadcore series combines classic retro design with equipment that meets today’s requirements. The manoeuvrable doublecut instrument relies on a classic slim RC maple neck, a versatile adjustable Ibanez tight-tune bridge with string guidance through the body and the sound of two Core Tone humbuckers. Both humbuckers can be switched to single coil mode via the push/pull function of the Master Tone knob to elicit classic single coil sounds from the pickups. In the intermediate position, with the push/pull potentiometer pulled, the middle coils are active for crisp wireless sounds.
