The GRG170DX, also known as the GRG170D in Japan, is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2004. It has been a part of the entry-level GIO line since the line's introduction in 2004; prior to that it was known as the RG170DX.

The GRG170DX features Ibanez pickups, a synchronized tremolo bridge and a rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth inlays. It is produced in both China and Indonesia for different markets around the world and as such the specs vary slightly by market.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was changed to treated New Zealand pine for those GRG170DX models sold in Asia.

A left-handed version, the GRG170DXL, is also offered. The GRG170DXB is a similar model with black hardware.
