        Ok, here's the tough part.

        If I had known what I was doing I would have spent twice as much. I would have gotten something with a Floyd Rose type bridge. However, if you are considerign this guitar, you dn't know what you want. You may not want a tremolom you may want a hollow body, you may want a les paul style, you may want accoustic. You just want to play a guitar.

        Now, I have made some changes. I upgraded the tone block which according to my instructor makes it play like a higher priced insturment. and I plan on changing the electronics, though I may keep the pickups, they actually do a good enough job to keep.

        I will be buying another guitar with the before mentioned Floyd Rose tremolo, but I will keep this guitar for teaching and general screwing around.
        The bridge works, the tremolo bar works, the tuners tune, the humbuckers don't hum, and overall everythign works. This guitar has everythign a beginning guitar player needs and a few extras. One nice feature is the neck is a smaller profile than many other brands. This allows the beginner to learn the basics on a guiatar they don't have to fight.
        Excelent build. I could find no flaws in the build or design.
        For the price, this guitar is hard to beat. If you want something better, buy something more expensive. A lot more expensive.

        First, I realize this is a very budget guitar. I don't expect it to be like a high-quality/expensive guitar, and as a beginner I wouldn't know the difference anyway. However, no matter what the budget-range quality of the guitar, no product should arrive broken when it is brand-new.

        The front pickup leans forward about 20 degrees. Adjusting the screw only moves the pickup up and down, and I can't level the pickup. The rear pickup is way worse. It is sunk in forward about 45 degrees!!! The top pickup screw moves the pickup in/out just fine (but again, won't level it). The bottom screw is STRIPPED. If you try unscrewing, the screw will just slowly come out and the pickup won't move at all. But even if it did, the pickup is still STUCK at 45 degrees.

        I'm sure anyone who works with or builds guitars (yes, even the factory boys who sweat them out hundreds per day) should be able to EASILY notice that the pickups are not level, and especially this rear one. There's ZERO excuse at such a glaring obviously visible problem.

        The only answer can be that there is no quality control. It's like, if the neck was missing, they wouldn't notice that, and ship it anyway. If you wrote a good review about this guitar, my guess is that you were one of the lucky ones who received a properly-built one which just happened to come out right. Because I guarantee nobody checks these during the build process nor when they come off the line before placing it in the box.

        I'll take it to a guitar shop and pay them to see if they can fix it, and also the fret buzz while they are at it. I'm afraid to return it to MF for an exchange, since I could likely get a worse one. Some reviewers reported multiple returns with varying problems each time. So I probably have no right to complain and should consider myself "lucky" that I only got the problems I did get with mine. ??

        Buy this guitar if you have good outcome with gambling, lottery tickets, etc. I think, for the price, it's an awesome guitar, IF you get a working one.

              This guitar is great. The standard action is nice, I fiddled with that myself to help play a little faster. The pickups give off a nice sound. The tuning knobs are in great shape, sometimes there seems to be a "delay" but this guitar came out just the way I was hoping.

                great beginner guitar, but like most guitars you might want to take it to a shop and get the action adjusted. overall though this is a solid guitar espesially for the price.

I Checked everything on the amp was fine. I Tried everything on the guitars side. volume ,tone..even tried tuning the strings but Nothing happened. I guess It Was One of those defective guitars .Now I am sending it back hoping to get a working one.

                  This is a great beginners guitar. It does not have the quality of a Strat but it still has great tone. I would say that if you want a beginners electric guitar, this is definitely the one you should go with.

                  Great guitar, needs better frets and tremlo

                  By Jason Murphy

                  from Southern Middle TN

                  Comments about Ibanez GRX20 Electric Guitar:

                  Works best for learning and rock & roll. Fret action is low, not good for metal and other aggressive playing styles. The tremlo is very usable, but limited action and effect. If you bend it too far, it feels like it's going to snap.

                  All in all, a solid axe, a good place to start, and a great steal.
                  However, if you have the extra cash to spend, go for the GRG150DX. (the next model up)
                  Works well for most styles of rock & roll. Works ok for metal, but needs thicker frets and sturdier tremlo. To compensate for the short frets, I have to use heavier strings. The tremlo is decent, but is limited in its versatility; only goes so far and the starts to bend.
                  Well built all the way around. No structural complaints.
                  Best deal on the internet for the money. I searched high and low, and this little axe took the cake.
