What we say:

At A Glance

Although they are mainly known for creating well playing instruments for metal, Ibanez also make a fine selection of nylon string classical guitars. The GA range gives a faithful nod to traditional designs but with small concessions to modernity on some models such as cutaways and pickups. These classical guitars are easy to play and provide a comfortable and versatile route into this world for those wishing to try nylon string guitars. This particular model features a thinline slim body making it even easier to handle and find your way around.

Features We Love:

Cutaway

Something not usually found on a classical guitar, the cutaway is great for both beginners and experienced players. It allows greater access to the upper frets for a more enjoyable and rewarding playing experience.

Pickup

With a built in pickup you immediately have so many more options available. From plugging into an amp for a louder sound or direct recording, a whole range of possibilities are at your fingertips. Onboard EQ even lets you find the perfect tone for whatever situation you are in.

Quality Wood Selection

At the heart of any guitar is the wood it is made from. Integral to the tone, the spruce top produces a bright and warm tone which is projected well by the mahogany back and sides.

Pros:

  • Incredibly versatile for a classical guitar
  • Easy to play making it ideal for learners
  • Ibanez quality throughout

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4 (1 reviews)

Really comfortable to hold and play, particularly the neck. The narrower nut at 46mm makes it an easier transition if you are not used to classical guitars or if you're a beginner. For an inexpensive guitar, it has a nice sound, quite crisp but not sharp when played acoustically. When plugged in, the equaliser allows a wide range between a very rounded and sweet, almost soulful jazzy sound to a much sharper attack with the treble on full. Well worth the money.
