Here’s what Ibanez say:
The GIO series was developed for players who want Ibanez quality, but are working with a limited budget. Subject to many of the same rigorous inspection standards and warranty coverage as other Ibanez guitars, GIO guitars offer the best sound, style and playability of anything in their class.
This principled approach has not only put better guitars in the hands of new players—it’s been responsible for launching numerous new musical careers around the world.
The GRX40 features a poplar body fitted with a Maple GRX neck that features a Jatoba fretboard, medium frets and white dot inlays. The T-106 tremolo bridge is a simple but effective tremolo bridge for beginners. Electronics include three Infinity R pickups with a 5-way selector switch for a variety of tonal options, right at your fingertips.
