  • Good starter electric

    Nov 12, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique looks, variety of sound options, overall quality
    Cons: Finish picks up fingerprints, pickups are ok for beginner but not past that

    Summary: I've been playing guitar off and on for about 5 years now.  It started when my lovely wife bought me a beautiful acoustic (Olympia OD-10) that I just love playing.  Recently I found a teacher in my area and really started working on learning ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great tone, stays in tune well.
    Cons: Lousy Intonation,Loose hardware.

    Summary: I was at home scanning on E-Bay, going through the electric guitars section looking for any bargains, when this one caught my eye. The bidding on it was listed at $50.00 with only 30 minutes to go and there were only 3 bidders on it, so I placed a bid of ... read more

    May 5, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very decent guitar for the price. Very good neck, and overall size.
    Cons: Not well balanced.

    Summary: Ibanez makes quality guitars at prices generally lower than their counterparts. The Ibanez GAX70 Gio is a good example of a very inexpensive electric guitar ($200) which is good straight out of the box, or can be easily improved to make a very good ... read more

    Pros: Great sound, playability, looks, finish, weight, and size!
    Cons: Nothing I can find.

    Summary: Well, as a current and sad owner of a Harmony Bullet, I have learned to appreciate just about every other guitar in the world ever made. This guitar ROCKS! I have the transparent red one, and it looks better in real life than it ever ... read more

  • A good all around guitar for the money

    Aug 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good sounds, affordable, and good looking.
    Cons: Public opinion of import, inexpensive guitars?

    Summary: I like this guitar! Please keep in mind that this is an 'opinion' site, please. For the money (under $300), what more could you want from a guitar? It's got a good look (is anyone making simple Rock n' Roll guitars for under $1000 besides ... read more

  • An excellent choice for a first guitar.

    Mar 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Affordability, appearance and features normally found on more expensive guitars.
    Cons: Location of strap lug and neck width near the top.

    Summary: As a novice guitarist (less than 1 year), I was looking more at a suitable price range than for having all the "best" perks. I was surprised to find out from my more experienced friends and from shopping around a bit that the GAX70 has ... read more

    Pros: Slightly classier neck performance, solid all around, tuners
    Cons: Bad body finish, mediocre sound

    Summary: I teach guitar for a living and come across a variety of guitars. In the "starter electric" category there are few choices, of which this guitar is one. This guitar is typical of it's price range. It has decent tuners which is ... read more

    Cons: Crumby pickups. low volume it sounds nice, high volume it gets noisy.

    Pros: Affordable, high quality, and fashionable.
    Cons: It's not a Gibson.

    Pros: Good looking, great neck, feels great to play.
    Cons: Does not stay in tune, poor finish.

    Summary: I bought this guitar used, but in very good condition. It has relatively good tone and has pretty good pickups, but it goes out of tune somewhat easily. A neck adjustment is in the works. Also, it has very few options, but does the job. It has excellent ... read more

    Pros: Easy to play, good sounding, cheap
    Cons: Not for an experienced player, very simple design with few features.
