Excellent Classical Guitar - Amazing Price
David P Heyes, 12.07.2020
Like many kids, remember the cheap classical guitars from school - the sort you can buy for £40 in charity shops.

I have several acoustic, electric and bass guitars - but no nylon strung guitar - so after a lot of research I settled on this one.

In short, a lovely guitar, well finished, sounds great - especially when amplified.

PROS
Quality for the price - looks very nice
Narrow body - rests easily and closer to your body, more like an electric
Sound - great amplified with good range of tone
Plays well - and the cutaway is a thoughtful addition.
Tuner - for this money, to get a built in tuner is amazing.


CONS
Narrow body - a good sound when plugged in, OK when not plugged in but you can't fight physics. The larger the body... well, the larger the sound!

Thomann regularly have the best prices - and easily the most reliable delivery service and best customer service... initially I ordered the wider bodied GA6 by mistake and Thomann quickly revised the order before dispatch and sent the right one.

Good option if you use it plugged more than umplugged
11.06.2016
I bought the guitar mainly for practising at home , and the general aspect is good, very comfortable to play and decently built by Ibanez, in the price tag.

That being said, it lacks volume and tone when played unplugged , as you and if you, like me played on solid tops such as Takamines or Yamahas, it will be really hard to settle for this Ibanez.

I think it will suit a beginner who is looking to play it mostly plugged.

I hope that helps your decision.

As Usual Thomann service was outstanding !

Fair for the price.
Do not expect a high end Ibanez: lacks finish (on the varnish), the sound control is quite bad and you have no onboard tuner...however it is a good start for a begginner!

Great beginner guitar
Jakke420, 28.04.2020
Got this as my first guitar and I love its looks & sound! The neck is nice & slim and the fretboard feels quite pleasant.

One thing though: there seems to be some mess-up near the lacquer of the headstock. The strings also looked a bit used. Did they send me B-Stock?
