This is my first guitar and I love it. If I thought this was a crappy starter's guitar I would've gotten rid of it by now. After all this time, I still don't have the guts to look for another guitar.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $209.99 (new)
Where Obtained: Pro Music And Sound
Features:
A beginner's guitar well-suited for pro quality. Slick body. This guitar looks more expensive than it really is. Other beginner guitars are embarrassing to have on stage and such.
Playability:
Great action. Great Playability.
Sound Quality:
The stock pickups aren't as bad as I thought they were. Me and my marshall have lots of fun with the tone of my guitar.
Durability:
Everything is good except the strings and tremolo. Don't use the tremolo bridge. The strings get tough after a little while and start snapping. It gets annoying sometimes. All is relieved if you just change your strings every once in a while.

I looked at several other Ibanez, Gibson, Epiphone and ESP guitars, but this one caught my eye. I've always liked the S-series, and this is an introductory guitar with a good price.
Model Year: 2003
Price: $210.00 (new)

Features:
A great, beautiful jewel blue Ibanez with contour design. Has great body, feel and sound to it. Definitely a recommendation for any beginning or advanced guitarist. My only problem is that it doesn't have a double-locking tremolo, it has a standard. If it did, this would be the ultimate Ibanez.
Playability:
This guitar is as fun to look at as it is to play. Compared to other guitars, this one feels much more comfortable as you play it.
Sound Quality:
I've used a Marshall stack with the GSA60 before and it sounds sweet. It's well suited for soft, clean playing or loud distortion. I usually love to play Satriani and Vai styles on this guitar, but it fits well with any rock or metal styles, too.
Durability:
It must be tuned often, and that can be a pain. Using good strings could help, I still have factory ones on it, so that could be the only problem. If the tuning problem could be fixed, you could go for hours live with this thing.

I looked at some Epiphone les paul models, which I liked very much too, and some other ibanez stuff. I choose this one because of the different sounds you can make with the different stands. And because he just played so fine. And of course for the price, for such a price such a good guitar!!!
Model Year: 1999
Where Obtained: Musicall in (Noordwijk, Holland)
Features:
It's made in Indonesia, 6 strings, 22 frets, 1 volume controll, 1 tone. The switch has 5 stands.
Playability:
The action is perfect, you can play real quick on it, the only thing I don't like is the tremelo, that thing is really annoying so I don't use it at all, but that doesn't matter
Sound Quality:
It's a nice sound, I fell in love with it the first time I played on it, so nice, so warm. You can play Hardrock on it, Funk, normal rock, blues. Because of the 5 different stands for the switch, U can have very other sounds!!

I am giving this a five because it is a great guitar for the price. It is the best low end guitar I have played.
Model Year: 1999
Where Obtained: Music123.com
Features:
Made in Indonesia. Agitis body. Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard. 22 medium frets. One volume nob and one tone nob. 5 way selector. H-S-S configuration.
Playability:
Action came a bit high when I bought it, but I lowered it and it plays great. Very nice neck for quick playing. One of the best low end guitars I have played. My only gripe is the trem kinda sucks, as most low end trems do. I don't even bother using it.
Sound Quality:
Nice warm sound.
Durability:
Pretty durable.
