The GSA60 is an SA series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2000. It is part of the entry-level GIO line.
The GSA60 was one of the original models in the SA series and has been in production since, making it the longest running model in the series and one of the longest continuous production runs across the entire Ibanez line.
The GSA60 is among the most affordable of the SA series and S family. Notable differences with other SA models are the agathis body (later replaced by mahogany) and the placement of the output jack which is on the side of the body rather than the top. Other features are Ibanez pickups and a synchronized tremolo bridge.
For 2018 the fretboard material was changed to treated New Zealand pine. In addition the fretboard radius goes from 15¾" (400mm) to 12" (305mm) along with the rest of the models in the SA series.
In 2009, two limited edition colors were released: RD (Red) and SKB (Sky Blue). In 2012 the GSA60 borrowed the STD pickups from the mainline SA series. The pickups were switched to Infinity R's starting with 2015.
