The Ibanez GRG270B-BKN Electric Guitar in Black Night is an awesome model for guitarist’s who’re looking to take their playing to the next level, and need a guitar that can keep up with the pace.

Whether they're building signature models for legends such as Steve Vai, or entry level models for beginners, Ibanez dedicate every effort to crafting a model that plays well, feel right, sounds great, and looks awesome. The GRG270B ticks all boxes, and carries it all off with ease.
The sleek double-cutaway body design guarantees that reaching those upper frets is as comfortable as can be, whilst the slender profile benefits from ergonomically designed curves that allows the guitar to fit snugly as you play. Basswood carries out the task of body tonewood, generating a powerful energy with remarkable balance across the frequency spectrum from low to high, giving you incredibly versatility to play around with. The body - and matching headstock - have been given a clean and sophisticated black finish.
Fitted to the body is a single-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to a super slim profile that encourages you to play at lightning speed. The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard is adorned with dot position inlays, enabling you to navigate it with ease. Whether you're sticking to chords or executing sweet arpeggios, you'll struggle to find a more accommodating playing surface.
Ibanez Powersound Pickups
The Ibanez GRG270B has been fitted with PSND1/PSND2 humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, as well as a PSNDS single-coil pickup in the middle position.

Whatever style of music you play, you'll have endless fun exploring the enormous range of tones offered by this excellent setup.
The amazing Edge III tremolo system is what sets this guitar apart from all the other guitars in its class, for all Steve Vai and Joe Satriani fans, this is the tremolo that you can dive bomb forever with and still be in tune, as well as being smooth enough to use for smooth, scooped phrases.
