The Ibanez GAX70 is the most demanded affordable axe in Ibanez history.
The GAX70 was made for music now, not music then. Its crystal cut, double cutaway body is crafted of agatis, a wood similar in look to mahogany, but more similar in tone alder. Agatis has good sustain in the high end which is an excellent tonal characteristic fort he kind of cutting rhythm and lead work needed for today's harder and heavier rock.
Although modern in feel and tone, the GAX has all the traditional goodies: popular two humbucking configuration with two Powersound pickups and a standard 3 way toggle switch, rosewood fretboard on a 24-3/4 inches scale, 22 fret 1 pc maple neck, and die-cast tuners. The Ibanez Full Tune II bridge with stop tailpiece contributes to the GAX's ample sustain as well as making for easy intonating. The fact that this is an inexpensive axe is just a plus. At any price, the GAX70 is an instrument that stands on its own.
This bolt on 24.75 inch neck is designed for strong rhythm playing as well as leads.
A relative of mahogany with similar tonal characteristics, agathis provides warm lows with strong sustain.
Rosewood offers a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain.
