Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (87 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Sound: Good, rich sound for a thinline classical! Louder than I expected unplugged. Great response. Works with any style I choose. Sounds best when eq'd with a lot of bass. Currently I plug it into a Digitech GNX4 processor, then main out in stereo to two Canadian made Yorkville 50 watt powered amps. Bass up a bit and add a little reverb and your in business! Sounds as good or better then the high-end big boys. Can you tell I love this guitar? Feature: Combining spruce for the top and mohogany for the back and sides for a thinline guitar is a good combination. Exceptional tone when eq'd and amplified. Quality: It's made well. Clean finish, good color, nice design. The mohogany wood grain on the back and sides look as good as higher priced classicals. Don't believe I need a backup for it. Lightweight and easy to pack for the road. The only problem I had was on the rosette. It bubbled slightly the first year I had it, but has since flattened (shrank) down to the face of the guitar. It's perfect now. Has not bubbled since. Value: Absolutly worth the price paid! Manufacturer Support: No repairs or adjustments needed since I bought it 4 years ago. The rosette bubble problem solved itself. The Ibanez web site doesn't do justice to this guitar (not enough pictures). The Wow Factor: Many people I played for enjoyed the looks, sounds, and wanted to know what make it was. Overall: Great Sound, Great Value- I own some high-end classicals, and have found some good ones, but the GA5TCE is the one I most enjoy. Why? Because the neck is just right for intricate passages and all types of strumming. From folk to light rock, country to flamenco, it works! My chord hand doesn't get as tired when I play it. I play it hours at a time. It produces very good acoustic tones. A fun guitar to play.
Style of Music: Folk, Country, Jazz, Light Rock

Overall: What a nice surprise! Its pretty as the retail photos and plays perfectly with the strings that came on it. I'm very happy with the out of the box setup but I know I must be lucky because most guitars do require some adjustments. I just sold a Godin Nylon ACS-SA KOA and for my limited purpose I like the real classical sound coming out of this guitar when plugged in and using Head Phones. I haven't really played it much without being plugged in but it sounds nice unplugged from my limited experience. I have also owned a Cordoba C3M in the past and I like this guitar as well if not better than both the other guitars I mentioned. Note; My electronics had a tuner built in which is very nice but the photos show a slightly different system that has a Mid Range adjustment instead of the tuner. My guess is that either one will offer quality sound. Also: I was surprised that it has a Truss Rod. Many nylons don't so it is a nice feature for a yearly neck check and or adjustment. My guitar included a backup saddle, TRS 1/4" cable, Hex Wrench along with a few pamphlets and etc. Highly Satisfied! Way to go Ibanez! :-) The guitar arrived double boxed from FedEx within a few days of ordering. Great Deal again from zZounds. I highly recommend zZounds.com. Note: The sound hole cover by DAddario "Screeching Halt Feedback Suppressor" does not fit the sound hole on this guitar.
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz, Ambient, Improv.
