Ibanez GRX20Z Electric Guitar

Now you can turn your back on traditional budget guitars that only feature single coils, boring finishes, and a bogus name on the headstock. The GRX has humbuckers for solid leads, metallic finishes, and every one is set up with the same stringent standards as the most expensive instruments from Ibanez. That's why it proudly says "Ibanez" and not "by Ibanez" on the headstock.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'm 75 years old and spent 38 years as a working musician. I started as a kid on a flat top guitar and then an arch top and finally a solid body. Soon after I got started, I went into the Air Force. When I came out, there was no use for a lead guitarist, but every band wanted a bass man, so that became my instrument for the next 30 years. I've been retired from music for about 20 years and decided to take up guitar again. I remembered a few things from my early days and wanted to learn it right this time. I bought a cheap Squire Stratocaster and didn't like it at all, so I decided to buy the GRX20Z. Now I'm not as technically savvy as most of you guitarists are, but I do know what my hands feel and what my ears hear, and I've gotta say that I've bought more guitar than the price I paid for. At $149.99, I feel like I stole it away from someone. I couldn't be happier. If I ever get good enough and feel like I want to sit in and jam with someone, I won't feel embarrassed by the guitar. If anything, the guitar should be embarrassed by me. I've got it coupled up with a Peavey VYPR VIP3 amp and it sure sounds sweet. I haven't had the need to contact Manufacturer Support, but if their support is anything like the product, I'll never need to.
