If you're looking to get into the 6 string, this baby is for you. Awesome price and playability. Played this guitar and a few other 6ers in the store the other day and picked this one for its sound and ease of play. Looked at the price tag and did a double take. Can't believe that this kind of sound came out of a cheap guitar. I have owned my fair share of axes and this one ain't going anywhere for a good while.

I purchased one of these, but sent it back after one week. The neck intonation was uneven no matter how I adjusted it, and even with the action set to 3 mm at the 24th fret and the neck adjusted to curve forward quite a bit, I was getting too much fret buzz off the first three frets. The slot edges in the tuner pegs were sharp, and I busted strings on 3 different sets in three days, all at the point where the string bends over the slot edge. The frets were all unfiled on the lower side of the neck, requiring some filing by a tech. Although most of the frets rang true on the lower end of the neck, most of the frets in the upper register were dead. This is the most unplayable bass I have ever had the misfortune of purchasing. Probably just a bad apple, but I recommend saving your money and purchasing one of Ibanez's higher quality basses to avoid any problems. Ibanez makes great-sounding basses, but their budget models are best avoided.

    I've been having this bass for 3 years now it's alright but my biggest problem is the volume knobs they feel like they are going to break off when you turn them. if you are planning to buy one go to the store try it out and see how you like it

      Comments about Ibanez Gio GSR206 6-String Bass Guitar:

      I actually enjoyed this bass for the price. There would need to be adjustments for the pickups, and the action (Depending how YOU play), but it's a decent Ibanez 6 string for someone dwelling into 6-strings. The electronics are all right, not the best. I've noticed it is more of a metal player's bass than a clean/jazz bass. The B String is extremely muddy on this bass, depending on the type of strings you pick up and how adjusted the action is. Overall, a 4/5 rating is what I give this entry-level 6 string

      Comments about Ibanez Gio GSR206 6-String Bass Guitar:

      Ok so at first I was just happy to have a bass. I have been playing it for almost a year. I've switched strings a few times. I digress. I can't get some of the sound out of it I want due to no controls on the bass other than volume on the two pickups one tone knob and a bass boost. Also I wish the bridge was easier to adjust. It is an amazing bass to start six strings. I highly recommend to beginners!

      Great Instrument

      By Timothy Cummins

      from Huntington Beach, CA

      Comments about Ibanez Gio GSR206 6-String Bass Guitar:

      I've been playing bass for about 6 years now, and play primarily on a Geddy Lee Signature Fender jazz bass. I wanted to get something with a really wide range, but didn't want to shell out a lot of cash. I started playing this Ibanez in my local Guitar Center and really fell in love with it (and the price). The neck is super thin and the bass itself is relatively lightweight. Tone is the most important thing though, and the this Ibanez doesn't disappoint. There's even a 'boom' knob that really makes this thing rumble. For a first 6 string, I don't think you could really do any better.

      Comments about Ibanez Gio GSR206 6-String Bass Guitar:

      The only con to this ultimate professional instrument, It may be a little cumbersome for the average 4 string player, but after just a few minutes of playing it becomes natural playing. The range alone is what I love to experiment with. This bass has the features of a much more expensive custom shop bass. I would suggest slightly smaller gauge strings when it comes time to change them.

      The only thing that takes some getting used to is the fret board width, but this is to be expected with more than a conventional 4 string
