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 Powerpole Dual Coil pickups give you a high output usually missing from beginner basses. 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.

I am a complete beginner and its a great first bass. I fell in love with it the moment I took it out of the box. I love the slick looks of it and the way it feels and handles, not too heavy, the right weight I would say. I was hoping I would enjoy it very much to stay motivated and so far so good. My experience with guitar center has been a good one. Thanks so much for all the help, especially Chris at the 14th street/Union Square store in NYC and the phone rep at customer service. I had previously ordered the Yamaha RBX170 but the black color was in backorder way too long so I switched to this Ibanez and I believe I'm much happier.
Solid construction and nice playability. Action (distance between strings and fretboard) is good for a beginner. Not as light as some of the other Ibanez Soundgears, which can be either a good or a bad thing. Will definitely get you up and running if you're just learning bass. My main problem with this instrument is the pickup. Very muddy sounding with some low level distortion. Probably going to switch mine out to something better. Otherwise, good instrument.
I've just recently got this Bass and i have to say, for the money, it's amazing. I underesttimated how large the strap holder-thingy is. Plus the cutaway gives easy access to the lowest frets too
great bass for the money. looks awesome, sounds good. as a guitar player who needed something decent to record with, this was a perfect solution!
... I had ordered the woodtone but got the black tone. Not a big deal since my son wanted the black anyway but since I was paying I wanted the woodtone - no big deal. The sound is pretty good. I played around with it for a few moments before my son grabbed it forever - action is pretty good. I was pleased. Most of all the salesperson, Harv Evans was awesome - knowledgeable, friendly, and went above and beyond to help me.
I've been playing bass for a few years and my old one was horrible i bought this and it was incredible the sound is goo and it come ready to play
I bought this bass because, let's be honest, I'm not much of a bass player but I needed that bottom end. I was surprised to find a bass at this entry level price that sounds this good. Definitely worth it, a good bass sound is hard to find at this price range.
This bass comes ready to go. Just a quick tune and you are ready to rock. All of the components are in top shape, even the stock strings which are usually pretty poor quality on other guitars. I am a beginner. LEFTY. I'm learning to play bass through friends and online lessons, and this machine makes it easy to do so. This is a full scale, full sounding bass and can be used in for any genre. All in all a great buy!
I have ben playing professionally for 15 years. This bass is fine for the studio or backup instrument. No need to pay more, a little tinny but my amp is very bass'y so it all evens out. It looks as good as the picture too.
