OVERVIEW

A lean guitar with all the muscle you need to play the heaviest of metal!

The Ibanez GRGA32T electric guitar is appointed with a comfortable carved-top double-cutaway mahogany body. Its bolt-on maple neck with U-shaped profile makes for fast and effortless playing. The guitar's rosewood fretboard is dressed with 24 medium frets and dot inlays.

Ibanez loads the GRFA32T with Dual STDH humbucking pickups produce the attack, grind, and sustain that are the lifeblood of aggressive metal styles. The GRGA32T is Ibanez's most affordable guitar to boast a double-locking tremolo bridge. Black hardware adds to the simply elegant styling of this affordable Ibanez workhorse guitar.

Edge III tremolo
The Ibanez Edge III tremolo has lower profile tuners for better palm comfort. It provides strength and extraordinary tuning stability even under the most demanding playing conditions. The diabolical, double-locking Edge III bridge can take some of the most radical tremolo effects you can dish out, as well as offering total tuning stability.

I have owned this guitar for a bit over a month and i absolutely love it. It gives great sound for metal and has a nice clean sound too. I heard people having a lot of trouble with the Tremolo but after taking the time to set mine up properly it never goes out of tune. And for people saying the wammy bar falls out you can tighten it so that it doesnt and takes about 10 seconds. Dont hesitate to buy this guitar based on its low pricing i would pay three times as much for it. My only complaint is the chord it came with was very cheap and broke pretty fast but i got it fixed right away. This is one of the best instruments i have played even though it has a very low price compared with other Ibanez guitars you dont need to buy a very expensive one to sound great its your ability that counts. Thank You Ibanez!!!GET THIS GUITAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall, I gave this guitar a 6 because, considering the price, what do you expect for the price. I actually got mine on sale, so it was a sort of a steal. The archtop is real nice on it. The bottom line is, if you're not a beginner, buy a pricier guitar.
First of all, the pickups suck. They are terribly muddy and I would suggest switching them out. The neck is nice though. The guitar itself is light. THE BRIDGE STAYS IN TUNE. Don't listen to the people who say it doesn't stay in tune. They obviously have not set it up right. The trick is getting the strings and the springs to have the same tention on the bridge so that it sits in the middle. It was my first double locking bridge so it was a little tricky figuring it out (mine didn't even come with instructions for the bridge) but once you get it, it's easy.
The quality isn't too bad, but if you want better quality, increase your price range.
I gave the value a 7 out of 10 simply because of the pickups. They might as well have just left two open cavities in the body because you're gonna have to switch them out anyway. If you're a begginer though, you shouldn't notice them too much. Just focus on learning first.

Review of Ibanez GRGA32T Guitar

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

Bad guitar, not worth buying tremelo sucks doesn't stay in tune and overall is horrible
I bought this guitar in 2010 and honestly i thought it would be cool since I had already owned one ibanez but honestly this guitar is not worth buying. First off the tremelo system is real bad the guitar wont stay in tune at all and your divebombs sounds like crap.
The guitar is light which is good but when you plug it in weather it be on clean or overdrive it doesnt sounds good at all tremelos usually keep guitars in tune pretty good but not this one if your going to get something witha floyd rose i say play the guitar see if the tremelo is good and if it stays in tune.
This guitar honesltly made me skepticle about an ibanez floyd rose guitar its really tricky so i reccomend that you dont buy this guitar if your gonan get something witha floyd rose try a different guitar or try a different brand with floyd rose like schecter, esp and jackson

Awesome Guitar

By Josh Haynes

from charlotte, NC

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

For my second guitar this was a very wise purchase. i bought mine used for a very low price and i still havent foud out what was wrong with it (no scratches or cracks only heavily used strings). it took a little while getting used to the bridge but that came with time and was well worth it.
i was looking for a bridge that could handle some intense use and i hade considered a floyd rose. when i tried it i liked it but it was a ltiitle bulky, but then with some searcing i found the edge iii and its sleek design was perfect. it is also very comfortable and good for palm muting (sounds odd but it does). good for lots of use and compact design. also stays in tune very well most of the tuning i do is with the fine tuners.
this guitar is great for intermediate players or beginners looking for an improvement. the guitar is heavy but its not overwhelming. sure after playing for hours on end your back will hurt a little but be a man and get an inversion table. the pickups are standard and are good but not great, upgraded to some better ones. This guitar also has a very fast neck with medium sized frets, i prefer large frets but these are still great for lots of bending.

Great Guitar, Pros and Cons

By Matthew H.

from Massachusetts

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

Okay, here are the facts about the Floyd Rose:
It usually stays in tune during dive-bombs/vibrato/etc., but not always. If you try it more than once or go down too hard it will move around.

If you have never owned a Floyd Rose tremolo before, you should know that tuning is way different with this thing. If you use alternate tunings, don't get a Floyd Rose. You can't really change tunings (example: standard EADGBe to drop B) unless you are changing the strings. And you have to really be specific and careful if you want to be able to drop the E to drop D without unlocking the nut. So, if you want a Floyd Rose, then this is a pretty decent one, not amazing, but halfway decent.

Pickups:
I know some people have said the pickups aren't any good, but I think they are great. I run through a Fender 200W, which is an older amp but I adore the tone on it, and it sounds great clean and distorted. The clean tone is exceptionally nice considering it is a more shred oriented guitar.

Pros:
I love the neck, it is great for solos/shredding and is also good for rhythm guitar.

It looks awesome

Its super light

It has 24 frets!

It sounds great

Cons:
Maybe it is just me being short, but I can't palm mute with it standing. It's too long.

Tuning is incredibly difficult, normal for Floyd Roses, so is re-stringing

The file tuners can get stuck.

I had to fix the Intonation, the Bridge Height, and the Action on it. Not hard, except for the Intonation, so it isn't really a problem.

Overall:
I love this guitar. I love the feel, the neck, the look, the sound, almost everything. I love to play Chevelle and Muse stuff and it usually works fine for that stuff. I play as the sole guitarist in my band and I am the singer, so I need to be able to palm mute without keeping my guitar at my chest like the Beatles (no disrespect at all, the Beatles are great).

So, if you want a Floyd Rose tremolo and want to shred and solo and play all day long and have lots of time to tune it and can deal with the length issue, this guitar is AMAZING. But if a Floyd Rose is not a necessity, the palm muting is a problem, and tuning is not exactly your stongsuit, then find something different. Everything else about this guitar is great for me except for those things, I love a lot of things about this guitar. I think that this guitar is pretty similar and has roughly the same features as this one, without the tremolo:http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/ibanez-art100-electric-guitar

nice guitar for the person who is learning to play

By federico garcia

from houston

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

if you're learning to play this is a very good guitar for you and if your looking for a better sound i would change the pickups for dimarzio's or seymour duncan pickups
it's a nice guitar, perfect to learn but if you are more advanced at playing you'll have this problems:
the pickups do not have enough clarity and quality for a gig
the tremolo wont stay in tune
this is not a guitar for profecinal use
i have a lot of problems with the tremolo, it is no good for dive bombs
does not give sufficient comfort to play
sometimes the selector switch stops working and the neck position pickup stops sounding
but it sounds good on practice
is a good price for a guitar like this but it can be better

Perfect for Metal

By Adam DeCamp

from Salisbury, MD

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

Overall it's perfect for metal and anything else. Pickups are great and the tremolo system is awesome. Great for divebombs and the racecar lol It stays in tune but recommend going a higher gauge in strins if you want to tune it too Drop A, A# or B.
Very nice, sleek and great sounding guitar. The Bridge pickups are great for lead and they are perfect for metal.
The tremolo system is tricky at first since this is my first guitar with a tremolo system but once you get the hang of the system its not complicated at all. I would say that changing the strings for the first time is a @#$%@# but afterwards its very simple. The stock strings which are maybe 9 gauge D'addario's aren't great for Drop A# Tunings or Drop B but are fine for Drop C or D. I replaced them with Ernie Ball Power Slinky's they are the best! It also stays in tune forever lol
Great Sounding guitar and the fret board is fast and great for shreding to best of your ability. The the value is beyond my first expectations and It's worth 10x more than what I paid for.

Has been nothing but trouble from the 2 day

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

Overall, I wouldn't buy this guitar. It has been a major pain in the but to fix.
The pick-ups are fairly nice for a guitar in this price range, but the trem system on this has been horible, it wont stay in tune!
The quality of the guitar isn't so good, it's very light, but top heavy. But the guitar can keep a note for a pretty ong time.
It is an alright beginner's guitar, if you can get the trem to work for you.

Nice instrument

By Carlos Santiago

from San Juan, Puerto Rico

Comments about Ibanez GRGA32T Electric Guitar:

My first guitar (I am a bassist). I own and play it since October 2010. A really good guitar for the price. Feeling is very smooth. Cons: The volume knob is so close to the strings that I just could not help turning the volume accidentally. That is history. Know I have no issues or accidents with it (so volume knob is a pro not a con). The Edge III bridge is very annoying to work with (this is my very first electric guitar). Once you learn how to manage the bridge, is peaches and cream. So this is another con that is really a pro. Thus, I find nothing wrong with this guitar. My playing has improved a great deal. It sounds great through my Marshall MG10 without pedals, just the built-in distortion. I believe experienced professional players will also love this guitar. For beginners is a must have.
