AX and GAX guitars have everything you need (and nothing you don't) for heavy-duty modern rhythm and lead playing: 2 humbuckers, a 3-way switch, and a crystal cut body of Mahogany or Agathis. Ibanez' GAX guitars started out as the best selling inexpensive Ibanez guitars in their history -- now they're one of the best selling guitars of any kind in the world.
Raw simplicity and power in a crystal cut body of Mahogany or Agathis.

Have you seen the headlines? "Guitar rock is back."
Ibanez is happy to hear it. Except at Ibanez, guitar rock never "left" - and if you're the type of player who reads Ibanez catalogs, you've been too busy playing guitar or bass to worry…
a whole lot about the media's take on music. However, the papers are right about one thing: there are more new guitar and bass guitar styles than ever before. That's why there are more different kinds of guitars and basses in the 2003 Ibanez line up.
