Overview

For players on a budget who desire the same features as the SR, Ibanez' GSR basses offer Soundgear's famous sleekness, comfort, tone, and playability at a price that will astound. The Ibanez GSR205EX electric bass is a slick 5-string bass with incredible sound capabilities. Quality woods, superior construction, and impressive electronics distinguish this beauty and make it a great price.

This Ibanez GSR bass is made with a solid basswood body, offering outstanding tone and a sleek design. A bolt-on neck joint gives it strong, dedicated tone with lots of sustain. The 5-string bass guitar's cutaway body allows unrestricted access to the upper frets and U-shaped neck profile provides comfort for intricate fret movements. Further comfort is achieved with the Ibanez GSR205EX bass's rounded outer edge, 34" neck scale, 1-5/8" nut width, and 12" fretboard radius.

Lined up and ready for action, the Ibanez Powerpole Dual Coil neck and bridge passive ceramic pickups provide deep, fat tone with lots of upper-midrange punch. The PHAT II EQ plus dual volume knobs and tone knob will help you dial in the sound you seek. PHAT II active bass boost offers additional low-end power.

Die-cast tuners, black hardware, and a flat finish round out the Ibanez GSR205EX 5-string bass' features”with a stylish look that will never grow old.

My First 5 string

By Garrett Bull

from Auburn, WA

I've only had this bass for a couple of weeks now and it's proved to be great. Just getting back into playing, I wanted to try a 5 string all I've ever known is a 4 string. I can say that I was very impressed with the sound and quallity of the Ibanez even at such a low price. I would recomend this bass to other people who want to try a 5 string for the first time.

Decent for What it is

By Aidan Young

from Round Rock, TX

I used this at the store, and even then it had a decent set-up. The tone is not bad. It's a great starter bass.

Worth Every Penny!!!

By Andrew Hack

from Palmdale, CA

I was pleasantly surprised by how well this Ibanez bass plays! It is definitely the best bass for the price if you enjoy playing any type of rock, (especially metal!) The pickups sound fairly good and give you the deep sound bassists crave. The addition of the 5th string really complements the guitar as well!

Good Starter

By Kelly

from California

I bought this for my 15 year old son when he expressed an interest in learning to play bass. I bought this because I figured if he lost interest it was low priced and I wouldn't be out a big investment. Surprisingly he has stuck with it and it has a good sound for an inexpensive bass and he's growing into it instaed of out of it.

Great starter bass

By Seth

from Tulsa, OK

if you're starting bass and you're on a budget, ibanez is definitely what you're looking for. I played this thing for three years taking it all around and I just recently upgraded to a fender. It had a really good run. I couldn't be more pleased with a bass that I bought for this price

I think I'm in love

By Andrew

from St. Augustine, Florida

This bass is such a well made product. People have picked mine up and played it, and didn't believe the price I told them. I have it running through my Gallien-Krueger 1X15 and 4X10 full stack. Its as punch, clarity, and if you roll back the tone can get a mellow sound. It is truly a great bass.

Ibanez does it again!

By BassPlaya

from Irvine, California

This is honestly one of the best 5-strings you can get for your money. Body is very balanced, and has a wide range of tone. Great for any style of music. However, if you are not on a budget, an upgrade would probably be the best way to go. Overall though, definitely a great bass for just 300.
