Ibanez GRX70

Coming in at #10 is The Ibanez GRX70. Its Super affordable and has killer action. At $199 you cannot go wrong. If you are just starting out or need a good backup guitar and I can confidently recommend this guitar for anyone. It just stays in tune and plays like a professional instrument...today's value guitars are just far superior to what "we gen-xers and baby boomers" had to learn on. I am just sayin'
