Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.

The Ibanez GAX30GSP-BKN Gio Limited Edition Electric Guitar in Black Night finish delivers an awesome guitar at a price that everyone can take advantage of. Proving that quality need not cost the earth, Ibanez treat the GIO to the same inspection and set-up as their more expensive models, so you can rest assured that this gorgeous guitar comes to you in pristine condition.
The body has been crafted using poplar, a tonewood that is strong yet lightweight, and very comfortable to perform. Poplar produces smooth tones that sing out beautifully, giving a healthy bounce across the mid-range with softened lows and highs. The deep double-cutaway body profile makes it very easy to access the neck in its entirety, whilst the bevelled edge to the top creates a comfortable playing position for the picking arm. The black night paint job creates a cool and understated finish.
Ibanez know a thing or two about crafting exceptionally comfortable necks, and the GAX30GSP benefits from this wealth of knowledge. Paired with the body is a solid maple neck, which has been shaped to a flat and wide profile that is a dream to run your hand along. Married to the neck is a sublime rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays to guide your way in style.
The GAX30GSP-BKN is equipped with a pair of Ibanez Classic Elite passive humbuckers – one each fitted in the neck and bridge positions. These ceramic pickups offer a roaring burst of aggression that suits the mid-range energy produced by the poplar. Dial back the volume, and you are treated to a sweet and smooth output, which is perfect for blues and jazzy chops.
Using the 3-way pickup selector switch, you can select each pickup individually or both simultaneously. The neck pickup produces a sharp, incisive tone with astonishing clarity. The middle arrangement combines both pickups for a fat, full-bodied sound. The bridge pickup gives a grittier tone that is great for palm-muted picking with a tight response.
The fixed bridge guarantees a seamless connection between the strings and body, securing intonation and sustain throughout each and every performance. The nut and tuning machines work together harmoniously to uphold string tension and tuning integrity.
The Ibanez GAX30GSP-BKN Gio Limited Edition Electric Guitar in Black Night is a superb model that offers players on a budget to benefit from impeccable Ibanez design and construction. Whatever your age, skill level, or playing preference, this exceptional model is highly versatile, and once you pick it up you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it before.
