I've been recording and playing the guitar for 43 years. This guitar was the 31st guitar of my life but my very first nylon string. I bought it primarily as a travel guitar so that I wouldn't have to take my prize hollow body electric on vacation trips. I wanted a nylon string so that it would play more like an electric than a steel string. The guitar plays like a classical but well in spite of the wide neck. However it is much easier to finger pick a wide neck than a narrow one. I think the guitar sounds very good, given the price. To my surprise it sounds really nice when recorded direct in may DAW using Sonar 6.0. Even though I bought if for a travel/practice guitar, I'm using it extensively on my next CD and on a Christmas CD I'm working on. The finish job on the neck is rough but given that I paid $320 brand new with a brand new hard-shell case, I think it is a very good deal indeed. If that is your price range, this is lot of guitar for the money. However it has really got me wanting a high end nylon string, but that's the allure of guitars isn't it. I picked this guitar over several others in the $400 - $500 range. It sounded sweeter.

This guitar has a good overall acoustic sound and I like that it has a truss rod adjustment, but the electronics shorted out and ate several batteries before I gave up trying to do some repair on it (I can't get to where I think the problem is). It also had prickly fret ends that had to be filed down to make it comfortable to play, and I replaced the cheap plastic bridge with synthetic bone, which vastly improved the sound. Five of the six tuning keys work fine, but the B string turnkey goes thru a very stiff travel spot as you turn it. Overall it was a huge disappointment, and I will be donating this guitar to a local charity just to get it out of the house. Much to expensive to have this many issues. Two stars, only because the acoustic tone is pleasant.

Pros

  • Good workmanship

Cons

  • Electronics Are Just Ok

Best Uses

  • Beginner

Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is an excellent choice for a beginner, and beats other guitars in its class (e.g. Cordoba, Yamaha) by a long stretch. Not the most acoustically complex sound and the electronics are just ok (not great), but on workmanship alone it doesn't get better at this price.

Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I purchased this as an inexpensive classical that I could bring with me when I travel without having to worry about damage. I selected this model in particular because of the mahogany back which really adds to the bass and low-end. The action is nice and tight, the cutaway for easy playing, and the guitar is surprisingly heavier than other guitars in its price range. The electronics are so-so, but they're there if you need them. I recommend putting a quality set of strings on the guitar, having it setup upon purchase, and replacing the nut for a quality bone-nut. If you do all of those things you have a great sounding classical guitar for very little money.

I also play on a few other very expensive classical guitars and comparatively it does sound more hollow and flat. HOWEVER for the price you really cannot beat it. I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase and I'd buy one again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended for beginner players and even for pros who are looking for a classical guitar to travel with.

Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I could not be happier or more surprised at the construction quality, finish and sound. It came with D. Addario EXP strings laid over a IvoreXII nut and saddle which produced a nice warm tone. In fact, I could still hear the sustain after I put it away in my Humi-case. Apparently, the top is spruce, but it is the most beautifully patterned spruce I have ever seen. Color of a medium dark honey. I have since replaced the nut and saddle with my handmade Wyoming Buffalo bone nut and saddle and now it sparkels like a very high end guitar. Seriously, you will be pleased with the Ivorex, but bone transforms this guitar, head and shoulders above the crowd. No skin/finger snagging as you work up and down the fingerboard. Electronics work great. I'm going to have to stop bad mouthing Chinese products.

100% satisfiede

By Woodoc7

from Pittsburgh Pa.

Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Love this guitar. No problems with it what so ever. I've had it for about a year now. Play it a lot (as a hobby). A friend of mine played in a band years ago said, it has a good sound. With or without the amplifier. I like the sound when played with the amplifier. I also like the 2.5" wide nut because of my fat finger tips for playing chords. My other acoustic guitar has a 1 5/8" wide nut and I'm always muting a string.
I feel bad for the ones with low star counts. Like everything else, you take a chance when you buy anything.
Over all it is a good guitar for the price.

Mine wasn't so good

Cons

  • Buzz Inside The Body
  • Finish Was Flawed
  • Fret Ends Sharp

Best Uses

    Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    i thought this guitar sounded very good through the amplifier, and the action was nice right out of the box. However, the axe I received had a problem with the finish. It looked fine, but if you ran your hand around the sides it felt very rough around the upper bouts on both sides, as if the finish had been left to dry while the guitar was upright in a dusty environment. Also there was a very disturbing buzzing noise coming from inside the body. I was sure it was some electrical component that was loose, and I turned the guitar over as if I was playing left-handed, sure enough the noise went away. Soon as I flipped it back the right way, the noise was back. The ends of the frets were also VERY sharp, you could easily snag a finger on them... If I had kept the guitar I could've fixed that, but because of the other problems I sent it back. MF took it back, no questions. Decided not to get another one, this one scared me off.

    You simply cannot find a better guitar in this price range. I went to [@] and tried some Yamahas, Alvares, Dean Espana, etc. You can find others that may sound as good, but not better. Ibanez has done it again!!

    Still evaluating!

    By Robert House

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Recieved about a week ago and I am still evaluating it. I consider myself a beginner/intermediate and I don't play often. I own and a play a Takaminie C128 hand made in 1976, solid wood, warm tone; however, I wanted something different. I tried a few of the standard models in this general price range, but was drawn to the Ibanez GA6CE. It looks great, good finish, warm tone and easy to play. I purchased this one used and the concerns I have is that "tuning" does not hold and is slightly off; there is a buzzing on the "G" string; however it is not continuous. I'm considering restring to better and changing the bridge to bone and see if that will help. However, I am presently torn between returning it or making those changes. Overall, I really like the guitar and considering the price it's not a bad. If I make those changes and it works, it will be a GREAT deal

    you can do better

    By sideman-.gJ.u

    from OK

    Comments about Ibanez GA Series GA6CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have played several classical guitars and this one doesn't measure up. Hollow sounding acoustically; problems with the saddle/bridge alignment; frets and nut were poorly finished; tuning machines were crap and had to be replaced. Reasons I kept this guitar: 1) better than average sustain for nylon strings. 2) the piezo pickup makes this guitar sound completely different and better 3) believe it or not, if you play the blues with a hard and rough technique (using a pick) through the pickup it sounds pretty cool.. for blues that is, not classical. But I did stop recommending Ibanez after I got this one.From reading the other reviews, it seems there is a wide variation in quality for this model. So try before you buy.
