Great value

Comments about Ibanez GSR205SM 5-String Electric Bass:

If you like a five string and you don't want to reach half way across the fretboard just to go two frets down and one string up, this is the bass for you. It has a nice tight neck that makes this bass almost as easy to play as a guitar, a low smooth action makes for fast and easy transition and the sound is perfect straight off the rack. The 205 offers high quality sound and performance at an entry level price that's hard to say no to. I would recommend this bass for anyone.

Comments about Ibanez GSR205SM 5-String Electric Bass:

I bought this product only after the GSR205 in walnut was back-ordered to a date over three months after I ordered it. However, I'm very happy with it. The finish is gorgeous, the pickups sound clear, the neck is fast, the fingerboard is smooth- it's a wonderful bass. However, there is slight fret buzzing, even when tuned to E standard. Not a huge deal, especially when compared to the many pros.

It's a $300 Bass..

Comments about Ibanez GSR205SM 5-String Electric Bass:

Pros: Beautiful Wood Finish (I got the Brown Burst) Pretty decent stock pickups Nice thin Ibanez neck (Not too wide either) Very light Very thin body Decent sustain Good action on mine, another I tried double, but with less buzz obviously. Cons: Just a tad bit neck heavy (not a huge issue) Neck came what I would consider flat as a washboard action, no concave truss adjustment at all (buzzes quite a bit) tuned to D (full step down) I'm a guitar player (no bass guru) and I bought this bass to record some tracks with. It's definitely a good starter bass, and it definitely has the potential to play shows with as well. Tuned to standard tuning this thing is probably at it's ideal. Tuned down more than a step you may have to mess around quite a bit with the neck and intonation, and it still might not work for you. Other than the above I've already recommended it to some of my students interested in bass.

      Comments about Ibanez GSR205SM 5-String Electric Bass:

      I have a short scale Fender Pawn Shop series that I play in church. I find the short scale is easier for me to play, but I really wanted a 5 string. For the price this thing is awesome. It is lighter than my short scale and it's easier to move around the fretboard than I thought it would be. I put some flat wounds on it and couldn't be happier. I didn't give it 5 stars because I've only had it a couple of weeks, so I can't speak for durability as far as electronics.
