"GSR proves its worth"

So far, except for a frett buzz on the 12th with the A string, I think the action on this bass is one of the best I ever had. I have played Fender, Hagstrom, G&L, Kramer, Aria, and several others but find the action and tone on this to be spot on. Since I have not played in ten years, I thought my fingers would be killing me the first week or so, but the neck is ideal with my small hands so everything is turning out just fine. For under 200, this is a steal.

"nice for the price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been playing bass for around 25 years and have played all kinds. This is the most basic bass guitar you can imagine but it's made by Ibanez so it gets the job done. It plays great and feels good. I played it through a Peavey Tour 450 and a gk 4x10 with a horn at a gig a couple of nights ago. I play metal/punk music. Many people and the sound guy commented on my great tone. It does not have a gloss finish and the parts are good and simple to keep the price down but the thing still looks good I think.

"I love this bass."
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.
