This is my second review that I am writing on this guitar b/c I recently went to a very large music store and I played literally dozens of guitars in various diff. price ranges and I was surprised that my Ibanez grg120bdx is a lot better than what I thought till now, up until this point I thought that I got a really good guitar for a great price but now I realize that I got this guitar for an absolute steal and I mean a steal I tried out guitars that were b/t five hundred and one thousand and the only guitars from that price range that were better than this one was as follows:
1. Steve Vai gem (Ibanez of course!!!!!!) COST five hundred
2. PRS se COST five hundred (just a bit better to honest)
3. Fender COST nine hundred
Other than those nothing.
It beat out a Shecter and a even a twelve hundred Gibson and a telecaster and what not...
NOW this is all in the feel of the guitar and the ease of playability that I am comp. this Ibanez grg120bdx. BUT obviously the tone of the Gibson and telecaster were better but don't kid yourself this Ibanez has some awesome pickups and a great and I mean a great 3 way switch that gives you a great array of tone options.
This guitar as you can see is a beautiful guitar I was lucky and unlucky that I ended up with the blue metallic burst b/c I had my eye on the green version and when I finally made my decision ( which took weeks) I got a great deal on Black Friday, they only had the blue burst which happens to be stunning a real rock guitar look.
So in conclusion if you are a beginner and you are looking into an electric guitar with a budget then look no further then this guitar trust you will enjoy it a lot ( if you have no budget go out and buy a PRS custom they are one of if not the best and highest quality guitars on the market, they also cost around 4k ). All in all I have this guitar for over a year and a half and I am really happy that I bought this guitar, which was suggested by the MF Customer Service agents. They are the best !

So this guitar ended up being like that girl at a party you wish you hadn't started a conversation with.
Good looking, but not much else going on, and then after spending some time together, you're looking for a way out. Resale and trade in value is nothing, as I found out.

Now I've loved Ibanez products for years - but those were my younger years in the late 80s.
Stock pickups are okay, nothing special, neck was easy on the hands. This is an acceptable one if you want a guitar that will be your training wheels while learning to shred.
Basswood is near bottom of the list for good tone wood, it is cheap and used for budget guitars - so it's not meant to last. Nice looks at first glance - shark inlays are pretty. The red burst finish is hot.
But that basswood tho. Hard to shape the tone into something likable if you're an experienced player.
If your budget is 200, by all means grab this one up, the action on mine was okay, I lowered it a bit for playability. The hardware is nothing special, especially the tuners.
It's a guitar for a younger person, for sure - it's a matter of taste and after 27 years of playing I just don't draw inspiration from this guitar.
I can't recommend this to anyone who can hold out and save a little while longer for something better - otherwise, by all means pick it up and start playing - don't stop EVER.

Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

My wife bought me this guitar as a gift and I really love it. I wanted a guitar with humbuckers because I am beginning to dabble in metal and other heavy music. I normally play blues with a Stratocaster. This guitar rocks and I LOVE Ibanez necks. They are so thin and fast. I actually gained a 2 fret spread. This guitar is a beast for heavy music. Buckethead music sounds great and the sustain is endless thanks to the basswood body. The neck pickup is warm and clean arrpegio chords sound great and the bridge pickup is hot as a firecracker. Pinch harmonics and Zakk Wylde pings are a breeze. My only gripe is the 1 tone and 1 volume knobs. I am going to change em out with push/pull pots. I really believe you will not be disappointed!!

    Comments about Ibanez GRG120BDX Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is the perfect starter guitar and even a good guitar for a more professional player thats on a low budget. It looks great and sounds great I have tried dozens of guitars and this one plays like a Fender the action is simply amazing the neck is so awsome and thin. I love the way this guitar is not to heavy or too light. I already used this guitar at a live performance and it stayed in tune the entire time!

      This is my first guitar. I have been learning to play just recently, but the guitar works great for what I'm needing it for. the pick-ups run hot which is great for metal and just jamming in general. I have been actually able to move quickly on learning more intense and heavy riffs like slayer and megadeth. All in all this guitar is phenomenal. Very good buy!

      I just puchased this guitar used and was really blown away at how good the condition was for a used and inexpensive guitar. This is my first Ibanez and it won't be my last. The neck fits my hands like a glove. The overall feel is like it was made for me. This guitar has really sparked my interest in learning to play guitar again.

                      This guitar is really amazing. I bought this guitar about 3 weeks ago and i have only found one problem. When i use the whammy bar, 9 times out of 10 it comes out of tune. Other than this issue, this guitar is great. I'm 14 and I'm into Death-Core and heavy metal and I play stuff by like Bring Me The Horizon, Escape the Fate, We Came As Romans, Avenged Sevenfold and this guitar is perfect for this so I highly suggest this guitar for novice and even experienced guitar players. I actually used this guitar to play at a bar and it went really well and I'm actually joining my dads friends band and this guitar is what i used for all of this so I'm very proud of this guitar and myself. So I recommend for fans of Death-Core and heavy metal.

                        Great guitar for the price, pickups are solid (not great), strings should definitely be replaced. Came set up right out of the box and it looks amazing (sharktooth inlays look great) and the metallic blue is amazing. This is a great starter guitar, especially since Ibanez makes quality products.

                          My son is enjoying his new guitar. No complaints from him or his guitar Instructor. He has been practicing for about 4 years. Fair price and fast delivery. We will order from here in the future.

                            BUY THIS GUITAR. I got it as a restock and boy- does it put out!. Lightweight, decent electronics, good tone, and looks amazing- all for a crazy low price. I keep this as my down tuned guitar and it works beautifully. Overall completelyy worth the cash!

                              I was lucky enough to catch a super sale on one of these guitars. What I was looking for was a decent playing cart around axe for practice and leave the good stuff for gigs. Well, this guitar with some pro tweaking has become one of my favorite guitars. I have Fenders, Gibsons, both vintage and new. But this Ibanez just works really well and for the price, you cant beat it.If you want to nit pick, sure, the pick ups could be a bit better, the bridge could be a little better ( I don't ever use wammy, I tighten the bride flat to the body) But come on...look at that price. The neck is amazing. I have used this axe on stage with no problems at all. I play everything from pop to metal. Learn to use the knobs boys. It's got just the right weight, very comfy body and just plain fun to play. When the stock strings go south, put some Ernie Balls on and you will be very happy.

                              I love everything about this guitar except for the pickups, they sound great on cleans, but as far as being overdriven they don't sound anything as great as the EMGS in my other guitar, so if you have extra cash go grab some EMG 81 & 85's they are the best!
