MGR/irishguitar's review"Ibanez GRX40"

Ibanez GRX40
I got this guitar with a dean markley 8 watt amp for 120 bucks from a friend. i don't know how old it is. It is my first guitar, and i was too poor to get anything else, and i wanted something with a humbucker and 2 single coils, just to see what i would like. It was a great deal, and i still consider the guitar awesome, even though i consider myself an intermediate, self taught.

the humbucker is awesome. I play anything from
celtic, to Klezmar(believe it or not), to green day, to harder stuff. The humbucker with heavy gain on the high E string, can sound like bagpipes to a violin, interstingly enough. On the other hand, the humbucker is awesome with distortion. on clean, it has a very hard bright sound, which is a little too sharp. The single coils are good for the clean sound, and they sound very jangly on chords. Very versitile. The neck is very fast and slim. I played a very expensive PRS Tremonti at a friend's house and the neck was like a baseball bat. I prefer my guitar to his.

I do not like the single coils with distortion. they are very muddy. The strap also comes off a lot because the guitar strap pins are in bad condition (see below.) The humbucker is a little too sharp on clean.

The guitar is built very well. the only thing i don't like is the screw that holds in the strap on the bottom has come out, and i have to glue it in. The strap comes off a lot of the guitar. Fortunately, i always can grab it before it hits the floor.

It is a great first guitar! i have playered it for 9 months, and i still consider it a great guitar to play. I will upgrade when i can to a marshall 15 watt amp, as my amp is very poor, but i will continue to play my ibanez until i get enough money to get a epi les paul.

MGR/Sahil Sharma's review"Ibanez GRX 40"

I got this guitar from Mumbai for around 250$(brand new).In Indian rupees it is approximately 11500

Great 5-way pickup selector,handsome tremelo and perfect handling make this guitar one of a kind.

The neck is to broad so sometimes its uncomfortable when you are playing near the last fret.

This guitar is super cool looking.It has two single coils and one humbucking pickup.It even sports a 5 way pickup selector.Neck and head are made of maple while the fretboard is made of rosewood.

An economical and must buy for any neo-classical/80s rock follower.Cheers!

MGR/The Long Awaited Hero's review"Ibanez GRX40"

I got my Ibanez as a gift from my folks...don't know how much it was...probably cheap because we're on a tight budget.

Just about everything. The strings are nice and low on the fretboard so I can "really light it up", if you will. Sounds nice and you get a good tone out of it.

The nut that goes around the output jack on the guitar itself was coming loose. I tightened it and nothing happened again.

Solid. Built solid.

This was my first and only guitar, but it wasn't my first expierience with a guitar. I had tried out my friend's Fender, Gibson, Alvarez, and many others, (his dad is a guitar junkie and has LOTS of guitars) and my parents asked him about what would be a good quality axe for the price. He immediately said Ibanez. The first time I picked it up, I fell in love with it. My next guitar, which I will be purchasing soon, will be the Ibanez Artcore AG75...that too is amazing.

i got this from interstatemusic.com in a starter pack with a6" 10W amp. it was a 15th b day present.

its light, cheap, great starter,humbucking pickup, and standard bridge. the bridge is nice for palm muting.

well since its a starter, dont expect much. the first year it played real nice, but over time the neck warps and buzzes pretty bad. but thats expected.

its a cheap guitar so you gonna get cheap wood and a simple neck. over time it gets poor. the finish is durable though. ive hit it a lot and the finish hasnt cracked or anything.

perfect starter guitar. if you replace the humbucker with a seymour ducan super distortion, like i did, this thing will shred!
