The RG1520G features a basswood body bolted to a maple and walnut Wizard Prestige neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with small dot position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Vintage humbucking pickups, a locking nut and a Double Edge Pro tremolo bridge with Roland GK compatible piezo elements which allow access to Roland GK effects and midi control via a 13-pin connector.
