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. The Ibanez GIO GRX40 offers a great quality sound from it’s Powersound pickups (S-S-H), a comfortable neck that plays fast and smooth, a standard tremolo, and a contoured agathis body that snuggles up nice and friendly.
The traditional style AC models have been re-engineered to improve resonance for an authentic classical guitar sound. The nice combination of tone-woods yields a traditional, deep and delightfully mellow tone. Cort AC100OP is very forgiving of student mistakes, requiring slightly less precision and sharpness for a good tone.
