Overview

The Ibanez GRX20 Electric Guitar has a sleek neck and fast action. Two howling humbuckers-a Powersound 1 at the neck and a Powersound 2 at the bridge-crank out grinding, gritty tone by the busload. Standard rocking tremolo lets you dive bomb your way to musical bliss.

A guitar doesn't have to cost a bundle to sound good. The GIO series was developed for players who want Ibanez quality in a more affordable package. Not only do they look and play better than everything else in their price range, but their rigorous inspection, set-up and warranty is the same as Ibanez's more expensive models.

I haven't been playing for about 15 years but decided to get back into jamming with some old friends. I didn't want to waste money on a big name or dollar amount since I will probably never play in front of more than 5 people and I don't need to impress myself. I've always loved the quality and feel of the Ibanez products (I loved the old "roadstar" series) and this guitar just felt right to me. The strat body has always apealed to me except the Ibanez neck fits my hand better. I tried the Squier strats first but was not impressed with the build quality, the Epiphones were nice but I didn't want the same axe as all my son's friends, Deans were also on the radar but I remember their quality was always hit or miss. The stock strings were replaced first thing, I raised the action a touch and lubed up the tuning gear. After that it held its tune better, had clear sound all the way down the neck and didn't "jump" tension during tuning. This guitar replaced my old Kramer and feels like twice the guitar for half the price (and that was 20 years ago). I'd recommend this guitar for anyone on a budget but still wants decent equipment. When teamed up with the Behringer 30 watt amp it is a hell of a value.

i usually stop by to see what new guitars that they have in stock at the guitar center, and I did just that on Monday around November 10th, and I went through their section of the fenders, the gibsons, washburns, etc, and I came across the Ibanez section which is usually kept at the back of the guitar section, and their it was the GR20 hanging on the wall with a clearance price tag. In the past, I have purchased guitar for less than $200 and often then not, I was disappointed, even with a Fender Strat. The One that I play the most now is my Fender Strat Midnight Purple, which I guess is from their standard series, which I have my Roland Gr 20 connected to. Anyway, so I came across the grx20 which felt a lot like the fender strat with the sound closely resembling of the Les Paul with the dual humbucker pickups, and at $79 clearance price, I didn't think it was going to be that good, but when I played it, it felt right with me. I don't know what the original price was, but the guitar seems quite well put together, and this is only my third Ibaez guitar. I still have the one that I have purchased in 82 called the Custom guitar, and I've had one with a floating trem bar with fine tuner on the trem, which I did not like the sound at all. This one, with the five way switch I could get as gritty as Ace or bit twangy in the style of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and I think I found a guitar that I could play from Ace Frehley to Zebra, without switching guitars. It stays in tune well for a guitar equipped with a standard tremolo, and it uses the same type of trem arm from a strat so that's a plus. the tuning hardware isn't as smooth as my other two previous Ibanez guitars, and the Trem arm is a bit on the stiff size. But beyond that, this guitar was more than what I had bargained for in that price range. it far preceeds my warlocke by a couple of miles, and I paid more for the Warlock then this one. Beginner or not, this guitar is not a bad choice. I would have wished if they had the white one, but they were only closing out the black model. I will probably end up replacing the Tremolo with a little softer to the touch one, but other than that, I would have give a four star, but because of the tremolo arm, I am going to give it three stars.

        Comments about Ibanez GRX20 Electric Guitar:

        I've owned this guitar for about 5 years, and it still gives off the same sound sense the day I got it. Looking for a guitar that has powerful pickups, and straight up power? Well this thing has that in store. This guitar is great for a first guitar, and maybe even for some experienced musicians for the price. Though I have replaced the strings a few times (just like most guitars) it still is in great shape. This is definitely a bargain, that boasts a spectacular price.

        Comments about Ibanez GRX20 Electric Guitar:

        i bought this guitar not really expecting anything special. well was i wrong. for the price this guitar is really great. i can go from playing heavy metal(dropA tuning) to punk rock. every time i switch the guitar sound great. the stock pickups wouldn't be my first choice and I've been looking on replacing them but overall its a great buy. pit some Seymour Duncans is this and you have yourself a professional grade guitar.

        Comments about Ibanez GRX20 Electric Guitar:

        This year for Christmas, I decided I wanted to learn how to play guitar, and my dad bought me this awesome Ibanez!! I didn't know what to expect when I got it, but I was really hoping to get a metal sound like I have always wanted while playing countless hours of air guitar. Now that I have an amp and have been taking some lessons, this thing is an absolute screaming deal!! All I've done to this guitar is upgrade the strings to thicker, coated strings so I can hit the lower notes in either D or C, and it sounds great. It's comfortable and easy to play, and I would honestly probably play it in a live show if I ever get to that stage with my playing. I recommend this guitar for any beginner metal head like myself. It looks cool, has a really good quality build to it, and has a great sound. My guitar instructor was even impressed with the quality of the guitar. Pick this up and an amp, and you're set!

        This is a great guitar for the price of it. only problem I ever had was with the bridge. Simple fix tho. Do not plan on repainting this guitar though. I began to sand mine down and it had between 5-8 different layers of paint/primer on it. Solid guitar.
