The GRG150DX, also known as the GRG150D, is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2008. It was made in Indonesia as part of the entry-level GIO line.
The GRG150DX features a solid wood body (originally basswood, more recently poplar) bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups and a synchronized tremolo bridge.
In mid-2017 a new fretboard material, treated New Zealand pine, replaced rosewood.
The GRG150DX has been available in Japan since 2008. It was introduced for the US market as a new model in 2011. Since 2012 it's been available only in Australia, Canada and a handful of other small markets.
The GRG150DXB is a similar model. The GRG150LTD is a similar model with red fretboard inlays and pickguard. The GRG6SP1 is another similar model.
The GRG150DX was discontinued after 2018 in all markets except China. It was discontinued completely after 2019.
