The Ibanez Gio range have earned themselves a good reputation among rock guitarists. The beautifully sharp design of the Ibanez GRG121DX-SLS coupled with high quality components make this a superb choice without having to spend a large amount of money.
The Ibanez GRG121DX-SLS uses mahogany for it's tone wood base. This is an ideal choice as mahogany assists in the creation of a dense, rich tonal palette whilst retaining a lightweight feel. Thanks to the shapely curvature of the body and deep double-cutaway profile, the GRG121DX-SLS establishes a 'close-to-the-body' feel that many guitarists love.
The maple neck is shaped to a GRG profile which is extremely comfortable and provides the shape that is needed for that fast and smooth playing experience that Ibanez excel at which is one reason as to why Ibanez are so popular amongst metal players.
The neck is complimented with a bound rosewood fingerboard that plays home to the 24 jumbo frets complete with striking "shark tooth" positional inlays that not only serve a practical use, but also look stunning.
To deliver the amount of power and tone that rock and metal players need, the Ibanez GRG121DX-SLS comes equipped with 2 IBZ6 humbucking pickups, one in the neck position and one in the bridge position.
Heavy and rich rhythm right through to screaming leads can all be achieved with the inclusion of a 3-way pickup switching system and master tone and volume controls so you have no shortage to the range of tones that you can achieve.
The Ibanez GRG121DX-SLS electric guitar is made for rock and metal, and at under £160, represents superb value for money! Ibanez's reputation of being able to build guitars at an excellent standard yet at a very modest price is well known throughout the industry
