Ibanez GRG121DX Review

The GIO Series GRG121DX from Ibanez is a solid body electric guitar that is constructed with a mahogany body. It features a flat walnut finish. It is slim and has a bolt-on maple neck which is bound by twenty-four frets and a rosewood fingerboard and a shark tooth inlay. The guitar is constructed for those who love quality music at a lower price. One guitar goes for only $199.99 which is more considerable compared to its competitors. This product has the same warranty as its more expensive Ibanez variants which are quite frankly costly. Let us look at what the Ibanez GRG121DX review says about the product.

The Ibanez GRG121DX’s body is shaped as a Double Cutaway with a solid material made of wood (mahogany). This is carefully crafted and placed on the body to give it a very fine finish of gloss orientation. The guitar is made to be right handed for better handling. The neck is a GRG neck wood which is maple, and the joint is Bolted-on. The scale length is 25.5 inches which is particularly long, but it makes for better handling while playing. The Stuck wood on the neck is given a Gloss finish.

Pros and Cons

One Ibanez GRG121DX Review, states that the product is the first in the RG series with a 5-way switch which is a huge advantage, especially to metallic rock players. It also has a five way pick up control for easy controlling of the tone of the music. It also has white dot inlays. The basswood makes it very light, and thus a guitarist can play for long hours without being worn out. The volume control well fitted for easy control and pitch level tuning. It also has a very clean sound for that price. The product stays in tune for long which makes it appropriate for paying gigs.

According to another Ibanez GRG121DX review, the main disadvantage of this product is that it is a GIO series with a 3-way switch which is a drawback from ordinary electric guitars with the 5-way sector. The Shark tooth/Himalaya inlays do not affect the playability or the sound at all.

Ibanez Grg121dx Review – Conclusion

If you want a guitar that will give you the same experience as ordinary guitars, I recommend you read this Ibanez GRG121DX Review. My conclusion is that even with conventional guitars brandishing hefty price tags, the Ibanez GRG121DX has put out a pocket-friendly price that is an undercharge given the quality to deliver. When I first saw the price, I thought it was a rip off since it was too low, but when I got into the details, I realized that it’s a truly good investment.
