Got this guitar the day before the fourth of July and it's amazing. let's begin with the neck of the guitar made from maple, great and easy to play on it has the feel i was looking for in a guitar something heavy when i kicked it up with the distortion. Also the shark inlays gives it the nice look that stands out. soloing is just great with this, easy to handle and its sounds just great on clean mode too best purchase ever .i would recommend this to anyone looking for a good guitar at a great price

For a beginner guitar....this thing is great. But if you've been playing longer than a year...you'd know right off the bat that this thing is terrible! The switch for the pickups would make a static sound, and sometimes the neck pickup would not work...thankfully I fixed that, but an inexperienced player would have a lot of trouble dealing with this problem. If you have experience with fixing guitars or electronic equipment, and you are a beginner that doesn't have very high expectations for play-ability and reliability, then this is your guitar! If you have high expectations, and are looking for a "bang for the buck" guitar.....look elsewhere.

thin neck and great sound

By alex zuidema

from California

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

I just got this guitar and immediately it sounds awesome, great sharp and smooth tones with clean or distortion. It has a thin neck and smooth fretboard which i favor a lot. For such a low price you cant get better than this. this guitar is great for beginner and intermediate guitarists.

Great Guitar, but 1 major flaw

By Rick Hooper

from Murfreesboro, TN

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

While I do love my GRG120BDX, there is one thing that was problematic with all these guitars. The factory did not always do a very good job installing the fretwires. The first one I bought had at least 2 bad ones. When I took it in, it was decided because of this problem, I would get another of the same model. Problem with that is the sales manager and I went through 4 different guitars before we found one without the problem. If you choose this guitar, make sure to play each fret to make sure you do not have a dead fret because of bad installment of the fretwire. The one I took home does play very well and the pickups put out a great sound. I would recommend having your guitar professionally set-up as the factory set-up is not bad, just needs some tweaking.

First electric in 45 years

By Ricky Yelverton

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

My last electric guitar was when I was 12 years old. I've played acoustical for over 40 years. Bought this one during the Presidents Day sale and I love it. I didn't realize bar chords could be so easy to play. If you're playing at home or jamming with close friends this is a good guitar to have in your collection.

You get what you pay for

By Michael Mazon

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

Fast neck, nice frets, good action. Goes out of tune every 15 seconds. The trem system feels like a rusty pipe. The guitar is great looking as all Ibanez products are pretty sharp. I'm an experienced guitar player and I regret buying this guitar. Good for a beginner though. You get what you pay for.

Most versatile guitar for the money.

By Laurie Ransome

from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

This Ibanez is literally screaming versatility, whether you play Jazz, Rock, Death Metal, Djent, or even Mozart. The strings hold their tuning, no matter what it may be; Drop G, or standard. Pinch harmonics are a breeze, all strings are voiced evenly, so when you strum an entire chord, you don't only hear the low strings buzzing out the high strings. Highly recommend this guitar to anyone wanting either an entry level guitar, or an advanced player looking for an extremely affordable guitar on the fly.

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

THE GOOD:
The guitar looks great, as most Ibanez guitars do. The finish is flawless and there are no issues with the electronics. The neck is very smooth, and you can really glide up and down the neck with ease (unlike some guitar's whose necks seem to get "sticky", especially in humid weather). I had the guitar setup at the local GC and also had the stock strings replaced with a new set of "hybrid" Ernie Ball strings. I'm actually impressed with how good the stock humbucker pickups sound thru my Fender Mustang II amp; I was hoping for a better sound than my daughter's Squire Affinity Strat, and I got it. I like that the neck is a little wider than my old electric gtr (a Les Paul clone that I no longer have), because that makes it easier to fingerpick.

THE BAD:
My #1 gripe about this guitar is that using the whammy bar makes it go out of tune. Do just one dive-bomb, and you'll have to retune it. Bending notes also makes it go out of tune, although it takes 2 or 3 bends on the same string to make that string go out of tune. IF HEAVY USE OF THE WHAMMY BAR OR NOTE-BENDING ARE A MAJOR PART OF YOUR STYLE, THEN STAY AWAY...FAR, FAR AWAY...FROM THIS GUITAR. YOU WILL SPEND MORE TIME RETUNING IT THAN PLAYING IT. I actually removed the whammy bar so the temptation to use it isn't there. There's also still some fret buzz despite having GC do a full setup on it (this is partially due to the fact that I like the action to be lower). I probably should have had the intonation done too, because sometimes it doesn't sound like it's in tune, even when it IS in tune.

OVERALL:
Despite the tuning issues, I prefer this guitar over my daughter's Squire Affinity Strat. The neck is super smooth & fast, and the dual humbuckers sound really good (nice clean sound, surprisingly good distorted sound). More appropriate for a beginner, or as a spare for practice, but not for a player who wants to whammy and note-bend a lot. I'd buy it again, but would look for a used one first.
