Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

I played bass 20 years ago in a traveling band then switched to guitar and sold my old bass. I have tons of guitars but no bass (until I bought this one). I bought it for the low price with active electronics. Out of the box, the battery compartment was lined with white gunky stuff so I had to clean that out. I'm not impressed with the electronics at all. I experience a lot of crackles and sudden volume and tone changes without touching the controls. The bass feels good, it's light, and the neck feels great. Unfortunately, I'm returning it due to the inconsisteny in volume and tone.

Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

Bought the black one off the rack at a friend's music store as a temporary bass while i was rehabbing my '83 G&L SB-2, which i love dearly. This little guy with a bit of twekn' has turned out to be a very nice playing & sounding bass. I was quite surprised by it all! As most of the other owners are saying, fret bzzz is #1 enemy here. Throw some light gauge on, nothing over a "95" top(E), find a good guitar dude to adjust it. ENJOY, ENJOY!!

Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

This bass should only be considered as a very first bass guitar that a beginner would play. It's playing quality is very low, but that's assumable because of it's low price as well. It's good to pick up this guitar at first, but if you want to become a serious bass player you will definitely need to upgrade.

I learned bass on this guitar and it was great! Ibanez makes great products and this bass is very versatile. I've seen novice players use this specific bass for all genres of music. I couldn't think of any other bass to start with!!

    Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

    well i got this bass from a pawn shop so i went out and got some rotosound flat strings and cleaned the neck and it sounds amazing
    ive had it for a year and a half and the only thing it could maybe use is a bit better pick ups but the range of styles is very good for an intermediate bass

    Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

    Out of the box, it had some fret buzz, but a Sam Ash technician in Nashville and his magic hands switched out the strings (to Ernie Balls), fine tuned the frets, and made it sound just fantastic!

    It's my perfect road guitar. Plays great, but it's not so costly that you have to worry every time an airline or TSA employee gets near it.

    Comments about Ibanez GSR200 Bass Guitar:

    This is my first bass, it doesnt go out of tune, feels and looks great. But the "G" string buzzes, i even raised the string and it still buzzes, still a good guitar though.
