This is an Ibanez GAX70. My school has this guitar, okay for beginners, crap for advanced players.

Gax series Ibanez. I believe an older version of the Gio?

Come explore your dreams' creation

Wow, thanx for saving me some Andrews...

What is your take on the Squiers, any better any worse?
#9
Some Squiers are pretty decent the other, crap. If i were you i'd look at a few Used highend Squiers of some used fenders.

How do you tell which are good and which are crap? Or generally to be able to tell any model which is worth it or not. I figure it is like anything you cannot go on name alone. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Now mind you I am an old dog learning new tricks. I just started for real (practicing around one and a half to two hours a night) around 3 weeks ago. I am practicing on a 1950ish General Electric Guitar (yes they made them) so anything will be a step up from this. My price range is 150 or so. Mostly I will be plugging in to a berringer ucg102 and using guitar rig 3 as my amp.

£150 is quite a small budget.

This is an okay guitar dont expect anything amazing from £150 but if you couldm stretch to £200 you could get a quite decent starter guitar.

1 - It's "solder"

2 - Sounds like a shoddy repair to me, not a problem with the actual guitar, if he had to keep repairing it then he must have been doing something wrong.

TS: The GAX guitars are actually fine, I still have mine and I still like it, for what I paid for it it's a damn nice guitar that I've never had any real problems with, closest thing I got to an issue was the action on the low E which was sorted in about 30 seconds with an allen key.

I agree, that gax is not a bad guitar for what they cost, put some decent strings on it and you can rock with the best of them.
