    Hi everyone, I know its about as unexciting as Ibby's go but I got a 07' GRX20z at goodwill four months ago for $20. Everything was rusted to hell and it had a bit of water damage, but using spare parts from previous projects I've managed to bring the guitar back to life (and then some)...

    Hi, I just bought my first Ibanez in many years (my first guitar was an early 80s Ibanez semi-hollow), a GRX20. I wanted a cheap guitar to store at my mother's house for when I visit one month out of the year (I work overseas) so I wouldn't have to travel with one of my more expensive guitars...

The serial number is GS09U086162 and says it is made in china. It is a 4 string bass with 2 humbuckers and...

    Hey guys! I'm a proud owner of an RG 870QMZ. However, i enjoy collecting and working on guitars, and am coming into possesion of an Ibanez GRG150DX . I am aware that Gio's are the 'cheap' line of guitars. However, this guitar looks really pretty (red body, pink pickguard) and I would LOVE to...

    Heyo. A buddy of mine gave me his old gio. After some research, I've narrowed it down to the gax75. Now he decided to give it a custom paint job. He soaked it in paint thinner for about 24 while leaving the electronics in. I know all that stuff he left in is fried. Now that I have possession of...

    My First Ibanez. Bought it about 2 weeks ago from Gallins Musician Pro Store over here in Australia for $400 (down from $500) She's definitely the most beautiful thing I have ever owned. First song I ever played on it was 'Flying in a blue dream'... well, the bits I can play anyway. :D All...

    Well, I have a ibanez gio and had a pod hd 400 but it got screwed! No other pedals, or amp what so ever, i have a marshall 15w with reverb. My dad is travelling to USA so he's bringing me a musicman JP12 7string which I always dreamed of. Now I have to get a new effects processor, Axe fx is out...

  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hey guys, I have a pair of EMG 81's I got second hand years ago, and these don't have the 3 wire plug; just the red wire and white wire with shielding. The guitar originally had stock humbuckers in them, but the wiring was shot so I have to redo it all. I guess I'm just asking for help with the...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    I'm having some trouble finding out the right wiring for my Ibanez GSA60 (Gio). I put an Evo in the bridge, but it has slight buzzing when plugged in. I have green and bare together grounded on the pot, the red I have on the third (from left) spot on the switch, then white and black together on...

    Hey guys, this is my first post here at Jemsite. I've come here in hopes that you guys could help me figure out what exactly is wrong with this little Ibanez GIO series GRG170DX I recently bought. I've lurked around this board for a while, and I think I came to the right place. Now, on to the...

    I was watching a morning show here in Australia and they mentioned this. I reckon the playing is pretty good once he starts the solo, singing could be better. :D Mother in law, haha that's the best bit. If this guy manages to win or get close to winning the competition, Ibanez should release...

    Hi all!! Anybody knows if the GIO's neck pocket are compatible with Fender type necks?? I know pre-AANJ Ibanez were... Everything fine on the guitar. Actually neck is really decent and I like it. But you don't know when you may want to bolt on a new body or some crazy stuff alike. We're...
