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 poplar-bodied beauty is loaded with a well-articulated Standard PPD4 bridge humbucker, a snug SR-shaped maple neck, a 22-fret jatoba fingerboard with white 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 poplar 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 Poplar Body
Poplar 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 poplar 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 poplar-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 jatoba 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.
