OVERVIEW

An amazingly affordable rock guitar with a super-comfy neck, powerful Ibanez pickups and tremolo bridge.

The GRG120BDX also comes equipped with an upgraded FAT-6 tremolo bridge that'll inspire you while keeping everything in tune.

Case sold separately.

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!!

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:

    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.

          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.
