Small hands make big sounds with the Ibanez miKro GSRM20. This compact bass has many of the features found in its bigger counterparts.

Following the great success of the Mikro guitars, Ibanez has now brought Mikro basses into the fold, based on the Soundgear line. The shortened 28.6" scale is the perfect solution for smaller hands, younger players, or anywhere that space is at a premium.

The body is crafted from Agathis, with an easy to play Maple neck and features a rosewood fingerboard topped with 22 medium frets. The GSRM20 houses a set of "P" (neck) and "J" (bridge) style pickups for the unlimited tonal possibilities. The chrome hardware brings it together with a B10 bridge and die-cast tuners. Case not included.

      My husband is learning how to play his new bass guitar... so again he likes the style of it, and also how he can maneuver his fingers through the strings while playing.

          Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

          I began learning to play the bass guitar a couple months ago on a full size cheap no name bass. It was okay, but being a 5'3" 110 lb. female with tiny hands, I thought a small scale bass might work better for me. I was right. Since receiving my Mikro, my playing has improved a lot and the sound is great. It is so much more comfortable to play and I love the look too. I got the purple color.

          Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

          i got this bass a couple of years ago. i originally played guitar, and got a bass for the band at school. although it is a short scale, if you want to get more serious in your bass playing, you will have to get a regular size bass. however, for a beginner, especially someone who is used to playing guitar, this is perfect! i play all types of music from metal, jazz, rock, and even classical music! i still use this to jam out with friends because of the wide variety of music that this can play! i highly recommend this, especially as a starter bass

          Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

          This was originally a part of a package that was being introduced about 3 years ago with a small 10 Watt amp. I was just recovering from a stroke and needed something to help in the recovery. I purchased this bass and loved it ever since. I have played it in both mid to larger churches and also as a practice bass. I have never experienced a single problem with this bass. I only replaced the strings once due to their feel I was getting from wear. Have a G/K Amp Combo 200 Watt, this bass is more than able to keep up with the amp even during long sessions and services. I say to any one that is embarking on learning to play the bass guitar for the first time, please put your money on this bass. It is a little on the heavy side when playing while standing, but this is also something that can be overcome due to the proper strap and brace for your shoulder. Only reason for replacing it is due to time for an upgrade. Also preparing to begin recording. I say to anyone that is new or looking for just a pracitical pratice insturment, this is the perfect bass for the money. You will not be sorry for one minute or dollar spent.

          Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

          Made my purchase of this bass after Christamas almost 3 years ago. I was just beginnig to learn to play, and now after all the practice and lots of playing for my and others churches, I plan to let her go. Not because I have to but because I want something that has a more serious, professional sound and tone to it. When I fisrt brought this bass, I had to change the strings on it due to my style of playing (thumb style) Once I swaped out the strings it was all that I wanted to play all the time. In fact I have another model Ibanez and still perfer this one to the newer model, even when playing for Sunday Service or at practice. It has the tendency to produce some hum in the upper stings (E and A) And will from time to time become hard to get the E and A string to produce the correct note you might want to play. It can also be a little heavy after a long period of time on your shoulder and will slide when playing finger style, so be aware of this when you're standing and playing. Despite these small issues, you still have a great piece of musical equiptment to learn to play with and can also be used in emergency situations when your on stage axe is being repaired or if you're just playing for a venue where you don't need to do a lot of major thumb popping or have a lot of professional style playing expectations. If you're just beginning or need a back-up bass, for the money purchase this bass "FOR SURE."

            Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

            I bought the Ibanez Mikro Bass to bring with me as I travel for my daytime job, easier to lug around than the J-bass. It fits perfectly into the Gator GPE-ELEC-TSA Case(see my review there).

            Very nice bass, great tone, comfortable to play, reminiscent of Stanley C's piccolo bass. Great value for both beginner and expert bassists.

                  Comments about Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Electric Bass Guitar:

                  I was looking for a short scale bass for recording sessions. This 28.6 inch scale Ibanez GSRM20 MIKRO is perfect for guitar players or if a 34 or 30 inch scale is too much of a stretch. The neck is very comfortable and fast. The P and J type pickups sound great, very deep and clean in normal use, but there is a small buzz when the Tone Control is all the way up, but not bad, I am sure we will sort that out.
                  The quality, fit and finish are beautiful. Plus it is lite weight and about the size of a Strat so it is easy to handle. I simply love this little bass with a big sound. Plus the price is unbeatable. My Sam Ash Music store in Hollywood set it up for me and I could not be happier. My thanks to Sam Ash Music and Ibanez.
