Buying your first guitar can often be a difficult choice, especially if you're on a small budget. Ibanez created their GIO range to appeal to guitarists who are looking for quality without having to spend a fortune. The GRG121DX Spot Run offers superb tone and a quality feel despite its low price, making the ideal first guitar to go to for a beginner.
Featuring the double cutaway profile, the GRG121DX Spot Run body sits just right against the player while allowing you to access all of the frets that the neck has to offer. Ibanez have selected mahogany to construct the body, contributing a well-rounded, warm resonant tone. The body also features a slight bevel which enhances comfort for your playing arm.
Firmly joined to the body of the GRG121DX Spot Run is a maple neck shaped to the comfortable GRG profile. The smooth playing feel is further improved by a bound rosewood fingerboard topping the neck. There are 24 jumbo frets available to explore with sharktooth inlays that guide you up and down.
Ibanez have employed a powerful pair of IBZ-6 humbucking pickups to engineer the sound of the GRG121DX Spot Run model. The ceramic pickups are situated in the neck and bridge positions. The dual humbuckers produce a fat, full-bodied tone that is ideal for thick chords and intricate riffs.
If you're just starting out and learning your way around the guitar, the control layout is nice and simple on the GRG121DX. Controls include Master Volume, Master Tone and a 3-way pickup switch.
The lower bout of the body is fitted with a sturdy and reliable fixed bridge. The bridge provides accurate string spacing and facilitates changing over to new strings as and when you need to. Black hardware suits the finish of the guitar and is built to last.
