I have been playing an Epiphone acoustic DR-100 Vintage Sunburst for a little over a year now.I got it as my first guitar on my 12th birthday, and I thought it was time to try an electric since I could manipulate the sound and could play quietly with headphones with one. My teacher also said it would be easier to play certain things. I got it for my 13th b-day a few weeks ago. I bought the Ibanez GRX70QA since I thought it would be a cheap practice guitar, but i got a lot more especially for the price.

Right out of the box it was amazing. The finish was not at all pronounced and you can barely tell it has a pattern until you put it right up to a light. That was sorta disappointing but the neck was awsome. the its color and material was great as well as the fretboard. the chrome hardware was better than the black i saw on some other ibanez guitars. right out of the box it has a great feel and even without the finish look. The whammy bar didn't to have much effect on the sound if at all, but that may just be me.it's easy to adjust the volume and tone as well as tune by ear. This is great for practice and i assume much more. I can play save tonight, closing time,and semptember gurls easily with this guitar. The wider strat cutaway is great so i can reach every single fret with ease. the pickups are great and the 5 way selector switch is extremely helpful. Overall an amazing guitar for the price and quality.I hope someone else has a similar experience.

P.S. Goes great with a fender amp (Of course what doesn't). I use a mustang with amazing results.

I bought it about a year ago. At first I loved it, then the problems started. For one, it jumps out of tune quite often, even after stretching the strings. Second of all, the intonation falls out of place extremely easil. All I can say that I liked was it's tonality and thin neck

        Comments about Ibanez GRX70QA Electric Guitar:

        Like any new guitar out of the box it just needed to be set up and has sounded great and stays in tune well since. I play a wide variety of music and find the pick up layout to be versatile and helpful.
        This is a lower end Ibanez and may not be made or equipped as well as more expensive models, but I find the tone and playability to compare to some. I may just be lucky, but mine has no imperfections I can tell you of, considering I actually expected less for what I paid I'm a pretty happy camper.

        I was just looking for an inexpensive way to get back into playing. Ibanez had just the thing for less than two hundred. Musician's friend had the right product for the right price, and the free shipping was really sweet. When I am ready to move up to a pro model, musician's friend is who I will be ordering from. I am one hundred percent satisfied with the transaction.

          ive been playing guitar for 20 yrs and i can tell you i have had my share of guitars,first thing i must tell you is this guitar at that price is one of the best values i have seen in a long time for an electric guitar.Everything from the looks to the hardware in this guitar is top notch and i cant believe its under 200!I play thru a peavey vypyr VIP 2 40 watt amp and it sounds like a dream and really has a metal sound that you cant get with cheaper guitars but thats because it has two doubles and a single coil pick up,i get no feed back issues and i use a 21 foot monster cable also the neck action is super fast and great for fast leads or some kickin rhythms,i had no sound prblms playing megadeth hanger 18

            I love Ibanez guitars, this one is good, not the best, but good! If you want the vibrant color that the picture shows you may be disappointed, in fact when I first opened I thought they sent the wrong guitar at first,until I looked really close, I was bummed it wasnt as beautiful as the picture (I purchased this in blue)

            Comments about Ibanez GRX70QA Electric Guitar:

            Of course there are very fine instruments in the market for over 2,000 that are close to perfect. With this guitar you can play anywhere and record. For less than 200 you can't ask for more. It's versatile and excellent tone for almost every genre albeit it's more like the metal kind of guitar. Its playability and comfortable neck will allow you to play as fast as you can (if you practice). I recommend it as a spare guitar thought it can be used as main instrument as well!
