I've been playing guitar for 7 years now (3 years on acoustic and 4 years on electric using a crappy strat copy).

I'm a newbie on the Ibanez brand. I have played some GIOs owned by former bandmates, and they played really slick and sounds really great! It's a GRG150DX I think.

the Ibanez guitar I'm targeting now (since I'm new to the brand) is the Ibanez GRG121.

It has 2 humbuckers (STD01 and 02), a fixed bridge, 3-way switch and 24 frets.

the minimalism of the features o the guitar attracts me.

is it a good deaL? will it last long?

You have to realize that the GIO series is Ibanez's "sub-entry" level series and that the parts and quality of them are not the best. For just a little bit more you can get a fixed bridge RG or RGA that will be a SIGNIFICANTLY better guitar in every single way.
Current Ibanez "Heard":

That's a great route to take if you want a GREAT guitar for fairly cheap. I recommend looking at Ibanez models from the 90's. They rarely go for more then a few hundred dollars and they are SPECTACULAR instruments.
