The Ibanez GIO GRG170DX Electric Guitar provides excellent quality construction and extreme tone – and it’s more than affordable. The GRG170DX’s maple neck has a bright, clear resonance, and is paired with a bound rosewood fingerboard which brings softer and more articulated tones.
Powered by a trio of Infinity R/RS pickups, with humbuckers at the neck and bridge and a single coil in the middle, this guitar has some high voltage energy. The Infinity trio produce crystal clear tones with singing harmonics, resulting in a range of versatile tones for a variety of playing styles. With a sharp design, Ibanez angled headstock and sharktooth inlays, this beastly guitar has a fierce and striking appearance.
This guitar is in fair used condition. It has some light scratching to the surface of the body and has also had a small amount of repair carried out to the body of the guitar by the previous owner. It does not have its original tremolo arm. All of this is reflected in the asking price for the guitar.
The GIO Series was designed and developed by Ibanez for guitar players who desire the premium-quality of Ibanez instruments, but in a more affordable package. Not only does this range of guitars look and perform better than everything else in their price range, but their rigorous inspection, set-up, and warranty is identical to Ibanez’s signature models. So if you’re looking for a powerful guitar which suits players of all levels, then look no further than the Ibanez GIO.
Infinity R power
Bring in the big guns. This GRG170DX is powered by a trio of Ibanez Infinity R/RS Pickups, with Infinity R Humbuckers at the bridge and neck, and an RS Single Coil in the middle. These pickups deliver a versatile array of tones that work for a variety of different music styles. Expect clean notes with thick, harmonic tones, and plenty of punch. And you can easily shape your ideal sound with the Volume, Tone and 5-way pickup selector controls.
It’s a true treasure. The maple neck on the GRG170DX is one of a kind. Its superb playability will inspire you to write riffs all day long – and you’ll find it easy to do so. The smoothness of the finish combined with the exceptional attention to detail make it a real pleasure to play. And the rosewood fretboard offers a warm tone, helping to balance out the brightness of the maple for a well-rounded voicing. This is a guitar which can handle anything you throw at it.
