The Premium series is a line of electric guitars produced by Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. The line was introduced in 2011. It is a quality label Ibanez uses for Indonesian made instruments that are made with more attention to detail than the standard models. The Premium line slots between the "standard" line and the handcrafted-in-Japan Prestige line.
As of 2011, all models labeled Premium are part of the RG series. These include the RG870Z, RG870QMZ and RG920QMZ. Like the Prestige series models, the Premium models feature a five-piece laminated neck. Other features include both Ibanez and DiMarzio made pickups, the new Edge Zero II tremolo and for the RG870QMZ and RG920QMZ a quilted maple veneer top.
