The Ibanez GRG170DXLL left-handed electric guitar plays and sounds like a dream, yet comes in at a price that everyone can take advantage of. Ibanez have a worthy reputation for building incredible instruments - just ask Steve Vai, Tosin Abasi or Meshuggah - and they put just as much effort into their production line models as they do their artist signature series. The GRG170DXLL benefits their expertise and is perfect for those who're looking for a shred-friendly machine, and being the nice guys that they are Ibanez didn't want to let the left-handed players miss out on all the fun.
The GRG170DXLL body has been crafted to cater to left-handed players perfectly. The ergonomically-designed contours allow the guitar to rest snugly against your body during performances, whilst the weight distribution across the body and neck, is perfectly balanced, so that all you have to do is play. The body is built using basswood, a lightweight yet tonally balanced wood that has a prominent mid range punch. Finished in a cool black knight finish, this model is built to look as awesome as it sounds.
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 double-cutaway shape makes it very easy to reach the upper regions of the fingerboard, so laying down ludicrous sweeping patterns - with or without some deft tapping thrown in, your choice - is comfortable to do.
The GRG170DXL 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, the tonal versatility of this system opens the door for players of other genres to get involved. Delivering sophisticated cleans, fat mids, and snarling highs that are suited to any and every genre of music you could imagine, who wouldn't want to give this a go?
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 true.
The Ibanez GRG170DXL left-handed electric guitar is a truly awesome model, and if you're a leftie who's looking for a new addition for your arsenal, then grab one of these beauties whilst you can.
