Slick Looks and Unbelievably Beefy Tones for a Unbeatable Price

Just because you're a beginning bassist doesn't mean you need to make sacrifices in tone, playability, or looks -- as proven by the Ibanez GSR100EX electric bass guitar. This mahogany-bodied beauty is loaded with a well-articulated Standard PPD4 bridge humbucker, a snug SR-shaped maple neck, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays, volume and tone controls, chrome tuners, and a secure and stable B10 bridge. Step up to the plate in style with this sleek-looking, warm-sounding 4-string.

Standard PPD4 Bridge Humbucker

Right next to your chrome B10 bridge is your GSR100EX's clean and dependable Standard PPD4 humbucking pickup. The PPD pickup gets the job done by confidently capturing the resonance and full-bodied tone of this bass's mahogany body, and converting it into a high-integrity signal itching for an amplifier. This high-output humbucker ensures your playing will come through clearly, without any mud.

Rich-Sounding Mahogany Body

Mahogany is a great wood for basses because it does a wonderful job of emphasizing your mids and lows without losing any articulation. Sometimes basses can get a little muddled in their lower registers, but this baby is clean all the way. Thanks to the Ibanez GSR100EX's deeply cutaway mahogany body, you get consistently deep, full-bodied sound that teams up wonderfully in the context of a full band.

SR-Shaped Maple Neck

You'll be eager to build up your bass chops once you get your hand around the GSR100EX's comfy SR-shaped maple neck. Maple is a excellent neck tonewood, especially when paired with mahogany-bodied guitars -- it brightens up the tone while adding an appealing snappiness to your notes. The GSR100EX's neck is topped off with a super-smooth rosewood fingerboard of 22 medium frets.

Simple, Stripped-Down, No-Nonsense Controls

To help you hone in on your desired tone without any redundancy, the GSR100EX gives you single volume and tone controls. If your notes get too dark, just roll back your tone knob a bit to dial in the right sound for your style and amplifier. This bass is all about getting the job done in simplicity and style, so there's no reason for you to delay stepping up your bass game any longer. This is one "beginner" bass that you'll want to hold on to for a good long time.

Product Description

Sleek design and playing comfort, with boutique and expensive look. Though the GSR100EX is a fairly "no-frills" kind of bass guitar, it does feature the comfort and playability you'd get from Ibanez's more high-end Soundgear models, and it's powerful open pole pieced Dual Coil pickups give you a high output usually missing from beginner basses, with warm and fat tone of the Mahogany body. The bottom side has a reasonably deep cutaway that allows good access to the lower frets. If you're going to get the hang of playing electric bass, this is a quality choice to get your chops up to snuff on. Ibanez GSR basses offer the famous Soundgear sleekness, comfort, tone, and playability at prices that will astound. Also, this GSR100EX's satin finish gives you the smooth and boutique feeling on your playing.

"I love this bass."
Overall: I wanted a bass. I play guitar and just wanted to try the bass. I went in the music store and asked the salesman to help me. He showed me basses in my price line which was 500.00 dollars,then he wanted me to try the gsr100ex. He plays this one himself and asked me to try it. I love it!!!!!!!! I am telling you it sounded better than the other basses that were there. I would recommend this bass for anyone not just the beginner.
Style of Music: rock and country
