I got the pack on Christhmas 2005. I'm going to stress that this a STARTER PACK and I am comparing to other packs. I have since bought a Oscar Schmidt by Washburn Delta King bass. Features: The bass is decent. The input jack comes loose and spins around, which breaks all the wires. I got a nice jack put in it. The pickups are nice, I am going to put EMG passives in it. Frets are nice, not jagged. Bridge is good, it has nice sustain and doesn't hack up your strings (which you should change as soon as you can). The neck was set perfect right out of the box. Amp: OK. Not a whole lot of tone, but it is alot better than the amps that come with the Squire and Epiphone packs. Accessories: Tuner is nice. I still use it though I have the Boss TU-2. Strap stinks, get a new one with locks as soon as you can. Headphones are relly great. Video is really helpful. Gerald Veasley (who is awesome) shows how to play and take care of your bass. I believe that's it. The bass is well built and is worth putting some money into, it will still be cheaper than buying another one. Buy it, you won't be dissapointed.

This is a good starter pack and I'd recommend it for TRUE beginners - If you've played any other guitar for any reasonable length of time (say a year consistently) then take your money and put together your own Bass and Amp. I picked the Ibenez over the comparable Fender pack because I borrowed the Fender from a buddy of mine who's son had given up on the bass, and the entry level Fender just didn't have a good sound to it - but it also had pickup problems and was only a year old. The Ibenez (IMO) is the better package for guitar quality, but I'm biased (I prefer my Ibenez 6 string to my Fender too, but the Ibenez is what replaced my entry level Fender). If I keep at it I will be upgrading in a year or so at most. The Bass, Tuner, and Amp are worth it for a beginner, but you'll replace the strap and cable right away - walk out of the store with them if you buy this package. Detailed Review The Bass: The bass is light, has good sound and intonation and relaxing to play - I don't have to fight it for sound or performance. It holds tune and is enjoyable to play. I wish I had a bit more tone control, and active pickups, but hey - its entry level. The entry level quality shows in frets and fingerboard grain and finish, but it's a good play overall. It is my new toy and I've been playing it about an hour a day 5 days a week for 2 weeks now. No complaints, it plays well, and certainly has gotten me used to the bass. I have not had to replace the strings (as some others noted) and I don't anticipate needing to anytime soon. The Strap You will replace the strap - even in the realm of cheap straps this is a CHEAP strap - if you buy this package spend 4 bucks and get a cheap nylon strap or buy a real strap - I just grabbed an old one I had around. The Tuner It works when you need it, also support 6 string - nothing fancy here - just a hell of a lot cheaper than they used to be. The Amp It's a practice amp - nothing fancy (Volume and Bass, Mid, and Treb nobs, a Aux in line, and 3.5mm headphone jack - not the 6.3/(1/4inch) stereo jack). Correct - it won't power you through your garage band, there are no fancy features or connections - it is a basic starter amp, it's not supposed to. As with all entry level amps and , even some mid range, the jack was plastic, not metal. If you need or want more this is not the bass package for you - its fine for me learning the bass, it's plenty loud and my wife makes me use my headphones with the bass (not so with the Guitar). The Cable - I have to say I took one look at the cable and thew it out - but I had several real cables on hand. It had a hard, cheap, plastic quality and was only 6ft long and I didn't want to deal with it. I'm sure it was at least UL listed.

This is THE kit to get you going !

By hiervibe

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

This kit has ALL you need to start grooving right out of the box. It won't empty your wallet and you get a top notch bass. The only flaws are the strap and the cable, everything else is GREAT!

Good Bass

By Bassman

from Goleta, CA

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

My parents bought this bass for me about three years ago. However, they did not get the entire Jumpstart Pack. They got just the bass. The Ibanez IJXB190 is a great starting bass. It has great volume and tone for the price. It is fairly light and has a good feel to it. I have played many other "starting" basses but none pleased me more than this. I highly recommend that you buy this bass. It feels good, looks good, and sounds good. All for one great low price. Get it!!!

this bass lasts so long

By Zerousteve

from Rhode Island

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

i got this bass when i first begun playing (about 3 years ago). And its still in really good condition. the only bad thing i had with this bass is that the tuning keys are plastic and might crack like mine did. and they also are a little loose so when you play it they keys buzz. but over all this bass it great for starters.

Perfect for Starters

By John

from Virginia

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I got this pack over a year ago, and it has helped me learn bass really well. When you're begining, you don't need to worry about have the best sounding bass or the highest quality amp and such, you just need to worry about if its practical and if it's going to help you learn the fundamentals, and it sure does. Some minor adjustments need to be made after you start getting better, and you're more focused on tone after you know the fundamentals and you are more experienced. New pickups will help the tone, as well as a better quality cable and amp. The tuners, however, are top-notch and almost never go more than a smidgen out of tune, even after weeks of playing. I love this pack, and the bass is definatley a keeper, don't hesitate to buy this if you want to learn

Not bad at all

By Alex

from Ashland, Ky

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I picked this up having never even touched a bass, but I'd have to say it's a pretty good package. The bass itself has a really nice feel to it with its thin neck and smooth finish on the backside of it. Nice sound, unless you mess with the tone control, which seems to amplify mistakes. A few parts of it (like the tuners) seem cheap, but not outrageously so at this price. The amp is fine if you don't expect it to shake a house, though the EQ on it doesn't seem to do a ton. I usually use the supplied headphones, which are surprisingly good. I felt the tuner was jumping around too much to get a decent read, but checking it with a borrowed chromatic it seemed spot on. The battery case on it, however, is entirely too difficult to open. Only real problem with this package is the strap. It's very cheap, uncomfortable and just not long enough if you're even slightly tall.

Great Deal, Accessories Lack Quality

By Justin

from Lancaster, PA

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

The bass: This is the first bass I purchased, and the package is a really good deal. I don't believe the bass is sold stand alone without the package, but its very similar to the GSR200 with a few differences; this body is basswood instead of agathis, this model has standard p and j pickups instead of the powersound pickups, and this model does not have the eq boost control. This bass is very playable and much lighter than something like a Fender. The strings that came on it didn't last too long (the associate in the store liked to pull the bass out of the pack and play it frequently so the D-string broke in the first 5 months) Quality of products contained: I've owned this pack for almost 2 years now, and I care for it rather well. I love my Ibanez bass, and I am currently saving up for an SR706. I have no complaints about the amp, for being 15watts its a nice little combo cube (solid state of coarse). You will need to replace the strap the tabs that connect to the bass are heavily deteriorating. The cable that comes in the pack is a bit poorly made and delivers some unwanted noise to the amp if you move around much. The tuner also gives a slightly flat E. The gig bag does not offer much protection just ease of transportation, but definitely not comfort. Some of the stitching is beginning to pull out on the gig bag. The information on the DVD is not anything you can't look up. I personally have no use for picks besides decoration, and I haven't really used the headphones, so I can't say much about them. They definitely went for quantity over quality with this pack. My recommendation: If you're just getting started and would like the ease of everything coming packaged and don't mind most of the additional products being slightly sub-par, then this is a great package at a great price. Buying a bass, amp, strap, cable, and gig bag separately you will spend more money. However, if you wish to commit to playing long term in a band and are willing to spend the extra money, you can get a slightly better bass at a good price out of the GSR200 as well as get yourself an amp with a bit more power (a 15 watt amp will not keep up with a drummer, I've recently upgraded to an Acoustic B200), and accessories that will hold up better.

Great Bass!

By FiyerFly

from Houston, TX

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I got this Bass for my birthday, and it awesome! The Cons: 1. When you get your Bass you will probably want to change the strings, mine were not very good and they did not stay in tune. 2. The strap does not stay on very welll so you probably want to buy a new strap too. 3. The amp can be noisy at times, but you can barely hear it when your playing. The Pros: 1. The Bass is very durable, I've dropped it twice and it hasn't had any problems. 2. The DVD is very helpful. 3.It comes with alot of great extras. Overall this Bass Pack is great, and it's perfect for the beginning bassist.

WORTH IT!!

By M3TAL H3AD

from Endicott,Ny

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

This package is worth it. The only downside is the amp doesnt last to long and has little tone. Other than the cheap amp,the guitar is great. You can make some pretty heavy tones with guitar and it looks great.My next guitar is DEFINATELY GONNA' BE AN IBANEZ!!!!!! I strongly reccomend this to starter players.
