Ibanez GRGM21 GIO Mikro Electric Guitar

Perfect for the beginner shredder, this 22.2" scale, 3/4-size Mikro is crafted with all the quality of a full-size Ibanez, down to the high-output pickups.
The Ibanez Mikro GRGM21 can truly shred in smaller places than its competitors. The Mikro is no toy -- made to the same high standards of the other GIO series guitars. The RGRM21 has the same high-output Powersound pickups, the same construction, materials, set-up and inspection. It's just shorter, a 22.2 in. scale neck instead of 25.5 in., and smaller. That makes the GRGM21 perfect for tour buses, songwriting, running scales while downloading and, of course, for young rockers and beginners.

Smaller body size, 3/4 the size of a regular full body guitar, perfect for beginners or kids.

""do as i did, BUY IT IN THE FIRST FIVE SECONDS U SEE IT. ITS ALL WORTH IT!!!!!"
For me this guitar was a backup or extra axe to have when i buy my 350dx ibanez. but after purchase and playing time with it its now more of my main go to guitars. i luv that about it.

Sound
this guitar produces a way better sound than it looks it would. The pickups can sound great for metal, softy stuff, or just any rock. i think it could have a 5 way toggle switch but it still produces great sounds w/o.

Features
when i bought mine, it just came as its self. there is a gig bag made to fit its size around twenty bucks. I really like the humbuckers on this and the shark tooth neck diagram looks kick ass! would be cooler with a whammy bar though. but i didnt use one before so why use one now.

Ease of Use
it is very playable. the smaller body makes great for good solo play on the 24 fret neck. its hard enough to get to 21st fret on my strat so this makes things all fine n dandy. For a fat metal or rock sound i simply just use the neck pickup. and the bridge pickup is great for a thinner moderate rock sound that cant be beat. if u can play a regular standard sized guitar this one is no different exept a lil easier.

Quality
i feel that i baby it when traveling with it because i only use a larger gig bag for it because i dont have the one to fit its size. but really it is a solid guitar. the neck is perfectly solid and beautiful. The finish is very hard read more to scratch or damage as well as the pick guard. i feel comfortable with lots of use of this guitar. the only thing though is its size can make a worry.

Value
ok for the price i got my red mikro at, 120$ i would pay the price double just to keep it. after looking at this guitar and playing it for the first time i would of never guessed it to be this price. i would guess around 3 or 400 dollars. wow. It has the looks of a 500 dollar guitar with sound of a 300 dolla guitar. so they could of made the price this way because of the bodys size, but really thats just an added bonus to me.

Manufacturer Support
None needed yet. but it is an ibanez. keep that in mind.

The Wow Factor
It looks as if steve vai or someone of that such designed this beauty. im looking to get a ibanez rg 350dx and this guitar actually looks similar to it. It has the black on candy apple red which is my favorite combonation. it is available in other good colors to. The neck is a beaut i luv the shark tooth diagrams. beyond that just set it down and step away and stare at it and u will just want to kiss this thing.
