The GSZ220FM is an SZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2006. It is part of the entry-level GIO line. The GSZ220FM was a spot model which never appeared in a catalog.

The GSZ220FM has a flatter body shape than the standard (i.e. non-GIO) SZ models as well as a bolt-on rather than set-in neck joint and a tailpiece rather than a through-body string arrangement.

It features a basswood body with a flamed maple top bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret bound rosewood fretboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a fixed bridge and tailpiece and dual, covered Ibanez humbucking pickups with individual volume controls.

The GSZ120 is a similar model without the flame maple top and covered pickups.

The GSZ220FM was discontinued after 2010. It was replaced by the GSZ220A which is a similar model with a standard SZ arched body shape and without the flame maple top.
