A perfect introduction to the world of electric guitar. The Ibanez GRX70QM offers any inspired beginner the tool they need to start, and more importantly, stick with their instrument and turn it into a passion.
What makes it so great as a start up?
COST- Right out of the gate, the price. Many starting musicians, and/or their parents, are hesitant to spend money on an instrument and risk the potential of giving up on the interest down the road. The low price ensures that this new path won't put a toll on your pockets, and the build quality ensures the new player will not give up due to an instrument that "fights" them. Which brings us to the next point:
A REAL INSTRUMENT- One of our employees used to work at a department store that sold the toy guitars made from wood screws and plastic. Many were close to $100+, and the return rate on them was staggering. Their build made it difficult to play even by the employees who were seasoned guitarists themselves. Every guitar in the return bin was a child who quit before the end of 90 days. This will absolutely not be the case with the GRX70QM (or anything from the Ibanez Gio Line). Real resonant Tonewoods and electronics assembled in the Ibanez factory will produce an instrument that can hold it's own on stage as well as in your living room. Ibanez' tuners and bridge will also ensure that your guitar will stay in tune through vigorous strumming.
EASY LEARNING CURVE - Every electric instrument has it's own unique features and controls. Some of the more adventurous builders can pack in some complicated features that can get the best of you if you let them. The GRX's straightforward electronics and controls are easy to understand, while still offering the player room to experiment with their sound.
