Great guitar! Love the style and came with a bunch of useful accessories. I also love the sound of the humbucker pickups, and how it comes with the cord and whammy. If you are looking for a good guitar at a good price, there is many good guitars on this site. Surprisingly, it's actually better than my Fender guitar as well.

It's a 5 star for sure. With the quality provided along with all the accessories, it's a strong package. Usually with low budget guitars, you have the issue of awful intonation and bridge action, but the glarry 170 is actually pretty close to set right out of the box. Holds tune. The humbuckers play nicely. I highly recommend it, not just to new players, but experienced players as well.

Both my local luthier (and teacher), and I were very surprised with the quality of the guitar, especially at such a low price. I was looking for something cheap that may need some work done it, and in that sense I was a little disappointed. All it had that needed to be fixed up was a sticky pickup screw and a hole drilled for slightly (like a millimeter) misaligned pickup guard screw. And we took it apart looking for SOMETHING of significance to fix. Im very happy with my purchase. It plays grea ...

0 stars. They forced me to pick at least 1 star for submission, but a big fat goose egg is what I give them. Product arrived defective. Tone and volume knobs were loose and due to poor packing, the tip of the headstock had rubbed up against the cardboard box and the paint was worn off. Attempted to notify customer service about the defect - took 4 days for their response and they advised me to take it to a local repair shop and send them the bill for 'reimbursement'. Poorly set up and poor actio ...

Body of guitar had 2 small dents in the woof that looked like was there before it was painted. Once I tuned the guitar, sounded good. No real complaints, good starter guitar at incredibly affordable price for beginner.

The guitar was delvered quickly. but had a few scratches on it and the whammy bar didn't fit. I let Glarry know I wasn't satisfied with my purchase and they immediately gave me a full refund. I'm in Sales and I know occasionally somethng can go wrong with a purchase, but it's how the problem is handled by the seller that makes the difference between a good and an average/bad company. Thanks, Glarry!!

It's a long while since I bought my first Glarry guitar, and they keep getting better. The neck frets and finish on this 24 fret Ibanez RG copy are close to perfect. I'll upgrade the bridge humbucker but I do upgrades on pricey guitars. Glarry seem to be using careful delivery firms now, so minimal packaging and free delivery is no longer a concern.

It's a nice guitar there are a few issues like there is a few blemishes on it but that would be fine but I got to looking and the blemishes were filled in with sharpie and the clear coated over the top of that so kind crappy their but it sounds good and plays good thank you glarry. The only reason why I am disappointed is because the first guitar I bought was a sunset burst strat and that was amazing when I got it there were no blemishes at all but then I get this one and it was not as nice but ...

Exceptional customer service and shipping. Top notch. Guitar plays well, every bit worth the price. The neck is incredibly thick though, which may be a plus for some people. If you want a very thick neck, this is it

Just received the 170 within the free shipping time frame. I am Utterly Amazed!!! The finish is impressive, fret finish is not at all what I was expecting. Absolutely no sprouting or sharps!!! Neck is beautifully grained and headstock scarf is beautiful as well!!! Playability out of box is definitely less than desirable, however set up is not an issue for myself. Rock on Glarry and Thank You!!! Will be ordering again!!!

That's a Glarry sounding phenomenal. I had intended to raise the pickups, tweak the action, perhaps file the nut and change the strings. I did none of these things. Directly from the box, tuned and ready to rock. I love this guitar. Thank you! Have a listen... Doom Blues - www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXBgkqShuvo Blues - www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcRrvC4EQpg

I've had mine for about a week now, and I gotta say I'm very impressed! The finish is beautiful and flawless, and the setup was almost spot on! I did lower the action by filing the nut a bit and adjusting the saddles, and put on a set of XL 10s, tuned her up and was ready to go! The middle pickup needed a height adjustment, but was still a bit weak compared to the humbucker, but not bad, and actually sounded really good with a lot of OD and/or distortion - which is probably what you'll want to u ...

Guitar arrived missing a adjustment screw on a saddle in the tremolo tailpiece. This guitar could not have been set up at the factory, sloppy job. Contacted Glarry customer service many times, they could not be bothered to contact me. They offered me ten dollars to go buy a screw.I explained that you can't just go to the hardware store and buy a screw for one of these. I told them a new set of saddles and strings to repair the guitar correctly would cost $20.00 . They have ignored me. VERY POOR ...

The guitar came in perfect. Neck and fingerboard needed to be oil. But other than that it is an amazing instrument. Thank you so much

Great guitar! I would buy it again for sure. It's a great beginner guitar, or very capable of being 2nd guitar. The action is a little high out of the box but that's a pretty easy fix. Mine is very playable out of the box without needing a setup to play. Thank you

Does take a little bit of setup but its minimal at best. By far one of the best budget guitars I have ever played. The intonation a bit high on arrival but that's an easy fix. The guitar holds tune surprisingly well. will I buy another Glarry guitar? Defiantly there are several more models I would love too get my hands on. I already ordered a acoustic hoping Its as good as this electric.

This is the fourth Glarry guitar I have purchased. I had no problems with the first three. Pros: The guitar arrived quickly and undamaged. The fit and finish of the guitar is excellent, not a blemish. Cons: The humbuckers sound VERY weak and when you can hear them they are very distorted. Possibly they are not wired in right. I haven't had time to open it up to check. It's only playable with the single coil. The truss rod needed major tightening before the guitar was playable. Even though the gu ...
