Beautiful Bass


from Arvada

Comments about Ibanez GSR205FM 5-String Bass Guitar:

Flame maple top on a mahogany body makes this bass the flagship of the GSR line. Excellent feel and tone the low B for a 34" scale bass. The pickups deliver excellent range and punch for a soap bar with zero hum. String spacing at the bridge is 16.5mm and 11.5 mm at the nut. I'd like to see wider (17.5 - 19 mm) bridge string spacing on some SRs in the future.
