The GART50QA features a quilted art grain top on a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Powersound humbucking pickups and a standard hard-tail bridge.
At the 2010 Summer NAMM Show a new Transparent Blue Burst finish was introduced.
The GART50QAL is a left-handed version. The GART50FA is a similar model with a flamed art grain top.
The GART50QA was discontinued after 2011.
