A guitar doesn't have to cost a bundle to sound good. The GIO series was developed for players who want Ibanez quality in a more affordable package. Not only do they look and play better than everything else in their price range, but their rigorous inspection, set-up and warranty is the same as Ibanez's more expensive models.
Priced to be a "first" guitar, but good enough to be "a guitar of choice." You get Powersound pickups (S-S-H), a comfortable neck that plays fast and smooth, a standard tremolo, and a contoured agatis body that snuggles up nice and friendly.
