Infinity pickups give you massive tonal range
The Ibanez GRX70QA yields a range of impressive tones, thanks to its Infinity pickups. It all starts with a duo of Infinity R humbuckers. The neck position humbucker is voiced for warmer, richer tone, while the bridge humbucker is a brilliant lead pickup: vibrant yet snarling with an enhanced midrange output when you push it. Beyond that, you get an Infinity RS single-coil pickup in the middle position. If you’re after maximum tonal tenacity, the Ibanez GRX70QA will give your amplifier what you need.
Smooth-playing, fast-action neck enhances your speed
A guitar is only as playable as its neck — good thing the Ibanez GRX70QA has a smooth and fast-playing maple neck. This comfortable neck is capped by a bound purpleheart fingerboard with a super-flat 15.7″ radius and 22 medium frets, giving you the agility to execute fast single-note runs with ease.
Dive-bomb with this guitar’s tremolo
From huge dive-bombs to subtle vibrato to stutter-like warbling, the Ibanez GRX70QA’s tremolo is ready for anything you throw at it. When not in use, the tremolo is solid and in tune; when in use it does your bidding down to the microtone. Whether you need the trem for cool ’50s-era dips or massive metal dives, the Ibanez GRX70QA is ready.
