The Ibanez GRG170DX double-cutaway electric guitar is perfect for those who want a no-nonsense model that suits fast playing styles. Ibanez has built up a worthy reputation for crafting sublime instruments that are regularly seen in the hands of virtuosos around the world. When Steve Vai keeps returning to have his signature models built by your company, you know you must be doing something right. The GRG170DX benefits from years of experience to deliver a professional quality setup at an entry level price.
The GRG170DX body has been crafted with comfortability at the fore. Sleek curves allow the guitar to hug closely to your body as you play, with a slender profile that is easy to wield. The double-cutaway shape makes it very easy to reach the upper regions of the fingerboard. The body is built using basswood, a lightweight yet tonally balanced tonewood that has a forceful mid range energy.
Fitted to the body is a bolt-on maple neck that has been shaped to the lightning fast GRG1 profile, enabling you to navigate its playing surface at incredible speed. Married to the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 medium-sized frets, adorned with stylish sharktooth inlays.
The GRG170DX is armed with two humbuckers, and one single-coil pick up for extended tonal range. The humbuckers offer tonnes of gain in both positions, and the single-coil is great for clean tones and with the true duo selector system, this is an unbelievably versatile guitar. Rock and metal players will immediately fall in love with this setup, but don't be fooled, it's no one-trick pony. The tonal versatility of this system delivers sophisticated cleans, fat mids, and snarling highs that are suited to any and every genre of music you could imagine.
The Fat 10 bridge offers fantastic stability, allowing you to divebomb or scream (or simply add subtle vibrato if that's more your thing). The tuning machines faithfully uphold your tuning with absolute precision, so that no matter how frenetic your performance may get, each and every string will remain in tune.
