Very good beginner guitar!

Charles, 20.10.2009
The Ibanez GRG170 DX was my first real electric guitar! I have been looking for a model for a long time, which corresponds to both my price and my visual and sound engineering. So my way led me also into the Thomann Store into which I spiked this guitar and immediately fell in love with it! Now I will here briefly lose a few words:

Optics / processing: Gie Ibanez guitar comes in a noble (and at the moment also very trendy) black and is polished to high gloss! What I particularly liked at first sight is the very good processing of the tuning screws and the knob knobs; Nothing wobbles everything sits firmly! The neck is left in natural color and is quite thin, which makes it easier for beginners to play! The tremolo is also processed properly and completes the package. For the price a very good workmanship.

Sound: Since the guitar is equipped with 2 humbuckers as well as a singlecoil, many different sound variations are possible! Thanks to the 5-way switch, the pickups can be split accordingly. Since Ibenez is only used for the production of Ibenez, it is not allowed to expect too much from the sound, but they fulfill their purpose and are struggling with every imaginable musical direction. In the clean, especially the Halston pickup produces a very warm and soft sound with which beautiful sounds conjure up. The singlecoil is particularly suited to create stratelike sounds. For all those who like it harder, the humbucker is most important! It brings powerful sounds and you can hear the clear lines also in the HiGain range! Of course, there are no EMGs but they still offer a good soundtrack.

I can recommend the Ibanez GRG170 to any young guitarist who does not (yet) have so much money in his pocket, but still wants to buy a very decent instrument, because you get in any case! =)

The IBANEZ GRG170DX is worth the money!

MaxDevoured, 10.01.2011
This Ibanez is fully worth the money. When I unpacked it for the first time, I was immediately excited
And could not stop playing.

Let's start at the neck. The neck is pretty good playable. No sharp edges or anything else could interfere with playing. Also the mechanics at the top of the guitar neck have never caused me any problems. It is screwed on, but that is the price class completely just.

The pickup is near to perfect. Although the pickups themselves are not exactly the highest quality deliver but still a good price performance ratio. With 2 humbuckers and a singlecoil, the guitar is really a sound monster and can be found in just about any kind of music.
However, I am disturbed at the moment the singlecoil. Since I play tougher gaits like Deathcore and almost never use him, he stands for me just in the way and I hang from time to time. But this is not very tragic.

The Tremolo is unfortunately not my favorite with the guitar. When using the Trwemolos, my guitar will be upset all the time. But it is not a duty to use it, so you can avoid the constant tuning by not using it, because the tremolo lever is detachable and therefore does not interfere. In addition, it can quickly fall out when you are much moved with the guitar, for example, in performances. Otherwise, the pitch is very constant with the guitar and you can not complain.

At the 5-way switch and at the volume and tone controllers one can not do much wrong and that was not done. They are easy to use.

The overall body is very comfortable. But if you compare it with other Ibanez in higher price class, he is a real Klotz :). Nevertheless, he is very comfortable when playing in the sitting and standing.

With the whole features are also a tragetasche and a belt with it. With the bag the guitar can be transported very well and it offers a lot of storage space for the tuner, etc. The belt is also very good and I have never fallen off.

On the whole, the guitar is perfect for its price class. I do not give them anymore :)! You can not expect a 700 EUR guitar for the price. I have been with them for 2 years now and play with her up to 3 hours a day. I would buy them again at any time.
