Neck and Fretboard
The neck of the Ibanez GRG170DX Electric Guitar is crafted from maple, which imparts stiffness to the overall construction. This tonewood offers bright, well-balanced tones and exceptional projection on stage.
- Neck Material: GRG Maple
- Fretboard: Bound Rosewood fretboard with Sharktooth Inlay
- Scale: 648mm
- Frets: 24 Medium frets
- Strings: 6-strings
Thanks to the excellent note separation offered by maple, each string makes its presence felt. The rosewood construction of the fretboard yields warm tones with bell-tone highs and deep lows. In addition, rosewood offers a breezy playing experience thanks to its oily texture.
Articulation in Every Note
The versatile sonic character of the Ibanez GRG170DX Electric Guitar comes from the Infinity pickups at the bridge, neck, and middle positions. The Infinity R humbucker pickups offer warm tones with a wide bass response typical of the jazz and heavy rock genres. On the other hand, the Infinity RS single-coil pickup produces bright, crisp tones with considerable note definition, and is therefore well-suited for country, punk, and pop. All in all, the pickups cater to a wide range of musical styles.
Superior Pitch Stability
This instrument is equipped with the FAT-10 single-locking synchronized tremolo bridge for string coupling between the strings and the body. With this setup, you can easily create pitch-bending or portamento effects.
