RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength.
A guitar doesn't have to cost a lot to sound great! The GIO series was developed for players who want Ibanez quality and performance in a more affordable package. Not only do they look and play better than many other offerings in their price range, but they are held to the same standards and come with the same warranty as Ibanez's more expensive models.

Poplar used as a body wood delivers a well-balanced tone with incredible thickness.
