The GRGM21L is a left-handed RG series compact solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2011. It is produced in China as part of the entry-level GIO line.
The GRGM21L features a solid wood body (see specs for specific species) bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret fingerboard with sharktooth position markers. Components include dual Ibanez humbucking pickups and a fixed bridge.
In mid-2017 a new fretboard material, treated New Zealand pine, replaced rosewood. For 2018 the bridge was identified as the F106. For 2019 the fretboard material was changed to Jatoba, the body was once again basswood and the 3-way lever pickup selector was replaced with a 5-way.
Like its right-handed counterpart, the GRGM21, the GRGM21L features a smaller body and a 22.2 inch scale length neck instead of the more standard 24¾" to 25½" scale.
