Ibanez Gio GAX30 Cherry Red 2005
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 trans red finish shows off some cool figuring in the timber; paired with the SG-ish shape this is a cool looking little thing. The pickups crank out a snappy growl, and being so light and slim, it's an easy player.
