The GRG170DXB is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It was produced in China as part of the entry-level GIO line.

The GRG170DXB features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and sharktooth position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil and a synchronized tremolo bridge.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with treated New Zealand pine. For 2019 the basswood body was replaced with poplar.

The GRG170DX is a similar model with chrome hardware. The GRG170BBW is a similar model with a burl wood top.

The GRG170DXB was discontinued after 2019. A new version with the same name was introduced for 2021.
