PLAY AS YOU PAY
If you're ready to bust into the world of electric basses, Ibanez's GSR200 electric bass will bring the heavy in comfortable playability and assured earth-rumbling fashion. This axe is a beginner's best friend, featuring a GSR4 agathis body, a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard of 22 frets, a Powersound P and Powersound J pickup pairing, tone, volume, EQ, and PHAT-II bass boost controls, attractive chrome tuners, and a secure and enticing chrome Standard 4 bridge. Shake the ground in style with force with this comfortable and dynamic electric bass.

GSR4 Agathis Body

Your Ibanez GSR200 electric bass has a body comprised of agathis, a wood found in the tropical far east and the southwest Pacific. It is often referred to as "commercial-grade mahogany," and although your playing might not have the same full-bodied darkness that all-mahogany guitars do, your GSR200 will certainly have a warm color with present lows and mids.

Powersound P and Powersound J Pickup Pairing

To capture and project your playing, your GRS200 houses a Powersound P neck and Powersound J bridge pickup combination. These two baddies capture the resonance and low-end rumble of your bass's strings with presence and confident articulation. You won't have to worry about any mud getting in the way of your tone, even when you hit those lower notes on your E string. Your controls also feature a PHAT-II bass boost if you want to get a little extra push to bring out a heavier sound to your playing.

Comfortable Maple Neck and Rosewood Fretboard

This axe also features a comfortable and resonating maple neck with a smooth rosewood fingerboard. Maple is often a popular choice for necks because of its bright tonal color and the tightness it adds to your lower frequencies. Your playing transfers over smoothly and seamlessly as your hand comfortably slides across this appendage's 22 frets.

Eye-catching Chrome Hardware

Keeping your strings secure and in tune are your chrome tuners and chrome Standard 4 bridge. Your playing will maintain lasting intonation and enduring sustain when you hold your notes in tonal suspense. Plus, the shimmer of chrome adds an appealing slick character to your GSR200. This axe is an assured testament that a beginner's bass doesn't have to lack in sound or flair.

Features:

- GSR4 agathis body
- Maple neck with rosewood fretboard of 22 frets
- A Powersound P and Powersound J pickup configuration
- Volume, tone, EQ controls, and PHAT-II bass boost controls
- Secure Standard 4 bridge
- Sleek and attractive chrome hardware

4.5 out of 5 (1636 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "you'll be amazed with this Ibanez quality"
Sound: Notice the 4 knobs on this bass. You can go from a deep smooth full sound, to a punchy gain ALL with just the knobs on your guitar. I've been told by my band leader this sounds better than $2,000 basses Feature: solid knobs, solid recessed cable jack. Ease of Use: This bass is very lightweight and about the size of your average guitar. I transitioned from guitar, and had to learn bass in a week for a show. It worked, this bass just allows you to play. The string action is FULLY adjustable to what you want or the weather conditions, and the neck is solid and smooth. Quality: Please don't let this price or the word "beginner's" bass fool you. You are getting a quality instrument here from Ibanez. I am so amazed, and I think i'd prefer it over a big heavy overpriced fender any day. Value: $200 for a great sounding, fully adjustable, easy bass guitar...ready to be mastered by anyone. Overall: I have played 10 shows already with this bass. I have lended it to other bassists for shows. They love it, and I love it. If you polish this thing, it will look like an $800 Schecter or something. I'm a musician, buy this bass if you're smart and don't want the other companies pulling a grand out of you for no reason. I see no reason to move away from Ibanez bass.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pearl White Ibanez GSR200-Sexy looks and sexy sounds!"
Sound: As with most Ibanez basses, this one is very agressive and strong sounding. I love it! I own a 1983 Ibanez Roadstar, and this is like the 21st Century version of that! Mine's a Pearl White, and people in the club have mentioned to me that it's gorgeous! It is, too. I wasn't too crazy about an active set of pickups, but the boost really does make a difference. Feature: Once you learn how to use the boost, and blend the two pickups, you can make this one sound like any bass! Very nice. The bubinga body makes for a very musical, sustaining sound and the neck is fast and slim. 22 frets. Ease of Use: Easy to dial in great sounds. Quality: I have a pearl white one and the fit and finish are similar to a 1,200 dollar guitar or more. I love this guitar. I will use it from now on as my main instrument, the neck is so solid. Value: Fender, Epiphone, Yamaha, all the others can't touch this one for quality and sound. Ibanez just does it right! Manufacturer Support: Never needed them! The Wow Factor: Very sexy! Pearl white finish in a very futuristic shape, slim design with a narrow neck. Form a line, girls stud bass player here! Overall: I will not buy another bass. This one does it all for me. If it wears out I'll get another one. If it was stolen I'd buy another one. Next time though I'm getting a very nice gig bag with big pockets.
