Ibanez made the Gio range in order to supply all guitarists with a good quality rock guitar that would sound good and be reliable but also be very affordable.
Importantly, it proudly displays the Ibanez logo on the headstock, not some other name for a cheaper range. This proves that Ibanez are serious about their commitment to making this an affordable range of real quality.
This addition to the Gio range gives cool 80s gunslinger looks with a pickguard reminiscent of the RG range (as is the headstock shape) and a classic H/S/S pickup combination to cover as many bases as possible.
A good tremolo and sunburst finish add to the value: this model has an edgy look but a versatile soul.
