Good beginners guitar. For the money it's great. I order new pickuckups and a floyd rose locking tremolo. Haven't decided if I'm gonna rout it out to pull back. All in all it's a prety good guitar once you get the In tonation set up. Definitely replace pickups so you have have high output pickups.

I needed an "around the house" electric guitar, mostly for recording demos. I was not looking to spend much. So after researching, I found Glarry to be highly recommended. Since the price was so affordable, I wasnt expecting to be overly impressed. But I was pleasantly surprised in the quality and feel of this guitar. So much so that I promptly purchased another electric and a bass from Glarry, and will likely purchase an acoustic as well.

Not a bad guitar for a $100. Basically an Ibanez copy. It is an attractive body style, and I like the way it plays. The light weight body makes it a lot more more practical to play for longer periods of time. I basically bought it as a base to build a custom gig guitar so I am currently in the middle of replacing some of the components and doing some modifications to it. I will be having it set up and fine tuned by my guitar tech when finished. Will probably have about $00 ad some change in it w ...

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 ...

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.

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!!!

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 ...

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

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.

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 ...

Although I love how well the guitar is built and the feel of the neck, the playability is very lacking. Right out of the box mine has fret buzz and buzzing when I play open cords. I wasn't expecting a master quality guitar but I had hoped that I would be able to tune it and play without much issues.
