Ibanez Gio GAX30 Black 2004
Ibanez GAX30, black, made in China 2004. Ibanez have generally produced well made guitars, even at the bottom end of their price range. This Gio series was a basic model in it's day, but hey, it's a perfectly respectable beginner guitar with a lot to offer. The SG-ish shape is easy to get your hands around, the neck and fretwork is nicely done and it plays nicely. The humbuckers deliver a warm crunch; no issues there! This kind of dollar gets you nought but a kick in the pants new, so nab yourself a mean little black Ibanez and get going!
