I bought this bass guitar a few days ago and over all it's not a bad instrument. I like the blue finish and the twenty two frets and the bass boost effect. The bridge pickup isn't as bright as like the fender jazz bass though. But I like the split coil neck pickup. Usually I like guitars & basses to have their jacks on the front side of the body, but I like it on this bass. This bass needs a nine volt battery for the pickups & EQ's to work so that's a small problem, but in my experience with this bass I find it's best to use a Hyvee brand battery because it fits better than other brands because others don't seem to fit to make the bass work.

    I am a beginner bassist and picked up this bass at my local store. I took it home and played all night. It sounded great. It even worked good out of tune. Great for bands and musical groups.

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I bought mine used at the local store . I would have bought a new one if I hadn't discovered this one first. I'll use it mostly in church and occasionally in small venues. The tone, feel and finish are as good as my Fender JBass (made in Mexico). PThe tone has a good range and it sits comfortably when using a strap. The price makes this guitar a great bass for beginners as well as a gigging musician.

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I bought the jewel blue one and named it "Jewel". No, not like the singer. I thought it was totally beyond all expectations. I played it for a couple of years before I lost it when my marriage fizzled. Now I want another one.

      I'm no novice. I've been playing guitar for over 35 years, and Jewel was my third bass. I liked her better than a Fender Jazz. I want another one.

      To nitpick, I didn't like the square corners on the top of the neck (past all the frets), so I took the neck off and rounded them. Problem solved.

      I also didn't like that the threads stripped out on the E string bridge piece when I tried to back it up far enough to get the intonation right. But I think the real problem is solved with an Earvana nut.

      Anyway, if you can't afford to buy the bass everyone is telling you to buy - or even if you can - buy this one. If you don't sound good on it, you don't need a Fender or a Rick, you need lessons.

      My Burple Bass Rocks!!!

      By Stephen

      from Carrollton, TX

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I play guitar. I got Rocksmith 2014 on PS3 and noticed it worked with guitar and BASS so I decided to buy a bass. Why not, right!? I wanted to find something inexpensive and I really wanted something besides black, preferably blue. I found this one in jewel blue. I ordered it from GC and got it super fast, thank you GC. I have to say this bass is awesome for the price. Perfect for someone just starting. I had to do a little setup on it to clean up a slight fret buzz on E2 and a few of the frets had sharp metal barbs sticking out towards the top of the neck. I bought a drywall sanding sponge as suggested online and cleaned them right up very easily. I set the intonation and off I went. It's so smooth and comfortable to play. Very lightweight. My 8 year old granddaughter can hold it. I want to say it's smaller than most basses, but me coming from guitar might be an advantage. The color is not really blue, more of a purple. The first thing my wife said when she saw it was "Purple!?!". In certain light it looks very blue but other times it's purple, so BURPLE it is. The finish is super clean and really looks awesome. I thought the purple was going to bother me but it just looks so clean and tight. All the hardware is chrome which looks really good. The strings that came with it sound and feel pretty good. I have had it for about a month now and they still sound good. As for sounding muddy, it can if you push the bass boost all the way up. I prefer medium boost to keep the mud out. I am also able to get that clean sound by cutting the boost off and cleaning the tone up with the tone pot/knob. The knobs are one of my only complaints, they are plastic and feel very cheap to the touch. I hope they will hold up. As for the sound, I run it through a Peavey Vyper VIP2 and it sounds really good. Nice cleans, deep lows, good funky sounds, responsive pickups, and my mid's sound fine and crisp. I am not sure why others who have reviewed had problems with the mid's. The neck is unfinished and thin so it plays smooth and fast. Overall, very comfortable to play. I rated this a 4 out of 5 from a beginner's viewpoint although I know what good instruments are. It gets a 4 because of the knobs feeling cheap and the frets having sharp edges and really it should be a 4.5 because it's just so much fun to play. By the way... it works great with Rocksmith 2014 on the PS3. I would recommend it to others as a nice starter to intermediate bass and its worth every penny. Thank you Ibanez and GC.

      Horrible Bass

      By Parker

      from Cincinnati, OH

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      Less than 3 months after buying this bass, I noticed a horrid amount of fret buzz, and a strange crackling sound coming from my amp. On top of this, 3 frets on the D string all play the same exact pitch. Not joking. After several setups, the problems were still apparent. I replaced the output jack, and the crackling was fixed, but this bass still plays awfully. My advice is to save up a few hundred more dollars and buy a better used bass.

      Cant beat it. Buy this!

      By Zach Hanson

      from Menominee, MI

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I've had this bass for about 4 years and it has never let me down. The neck is amazingly thin and easy to play. Frets are spaced nicely. The pickups allow you to get so many great tones out of this. From real poppy highs to chest bumping lows using the bass boost nob. This is the lightest bass i have ever played, period. I love it being that i play 4-5 hour bar gigs. It really saves on the shoulder. And this bass is durable, believe me. Mine took a fall, strings down, from the tailgate of a truck onto blacktop. Didn't hurt a thing. Literally only like 3 one millimeter scratches in the finish. I was amazed. Over all i love this bass. I would recommend this to any level of player. You cant beat it for the price.

      Fantastic beginner bass

      By Nickolas Brown

      from Houston, Tx

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I bought this bass around June 2012 and I have got to say that it is absolutely astounding for the price. A great sound, only a little hissing, a thin and quick neck, and pretty lightweight. If you're looking for a beginner bass or even looking to reinvigorate your sound, go with this bass.

      The Toyota Corolla of Bass guitars

      By Johnathan Burgoyne

      from Tucson,AZ

      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      My friend picked up a Steinberger bass a few years ago and was urging me to pick up a bass so we could jam and learn together. 2 years ago I decided to start looking for something inexpensive to learn on and came across this bass on craigslist for $150 including a line 6 amp and stand. I replaced the strings with some Dean Markley Skullbusters. Bought a Digitech bp90 for dirt cheap from a guy going overseas to serve our country and I haven't been disappointed. Upon playing it for the first time my buddy said "Wow, this has some great action and a really smooth neck compared to my Steiny. This is a cool bass. You got a great deal!" That meant a lot seeing he is a bit of a bass elitist and despises anything Ibanez. I'm a hobbyist so I use this to jam along with the drum machine most of the time and also use it to play Rocksmith on the PS3. I play at least an hour every day and besides loose knobs and a tuner nut coming loose, I've had no problems. Even with my skills improving over the past couple years I really can't see myself ever needing anything more than this. Maybe a 5 string eventually, but I'll probably get one of those from the GSR series as well. It stays in tune for months at a time. The action is still set at the factory spec at the bridge and nut without me having to mess with it. It does look like the truss rod could use a tiny bit of adjustment to add some relief to the neck due to the thicker gauge strings. The bridge pickup can be a bit hissy at times but I can usually take care of that by messing with the knobs and some swear words. I like that the headstock doesn't look like a Fender hockey stick type. The finish has held up well. I rarely clean it and only oil the frets when I change strings which isn't very often. It's not a bad looking bass but it's not gonna stand out in a crowd. Has what I would describe as "The girl next door" appearance. Average. This one has the jewel blue finish that looks black in the right lighting. The only issues I've had is when it comes to slapping, popping, and tapping. It will do it but it comes across kinda twangy or metallic. I just can't seem to really get it to resonate correctly. Most likely I just lack the skill or the pickups are lacking. Really doesn't bother me much cause I tend to play more bluesy doom metal type stuff. I don't think labeling it as a beginner or intermediate bass is really appropriate. It's more like a middle of the road workhorse. It doesn't sound badly in any style but it doesn't stand out as great either. Just enough of a "WOW" factor to keep ya coming back. It's like that trusty old late 90's Toyota Corolla your Mom drives with 200k+ miles on it. The one you make excuses to take out just so you can go spin backwards donuts in a dirt lot somewhere. It just keeps going no matter what type of beating you put on it. If you just wanna play or learn to play and you're not an ego maniac I'd highly recommend this daily driver.
