Ibanez is thrilled to introduce the GSR205 5-String Bass. Part of Ibanez's acclaimed Soundgear series, the GSR205B provides stunning looks, a fat tone, and amazing playability at an unbeatable price. Its agathis body is comfortably contoured, and the slim maple neck allows for impressive speed and comfort. The active Phat II bass boost delivers additional low-end power, letting you keep the groove going all night. For bassists seeking pro-level performance on a budget, the Ibanez GSR205B is the clear choice.

PHAT II Active Bass Boost

The built-in PHAT II active bass boost provides extra low-end girth, allowing for a wide range of tones perfect for any musical style. Simply flick the boost on for a thunderous, subterranean rumble that will shake the floor, or leave it off for a punchy tone with defined midrange attack. The PHAT II circuit lets you shape your tone to fit the gig.

Fast, Slim Maple Neck

The GSR205B features a fast maple neck with a slim, comfortable profile that facilitates rapid runs and effortless position shifts. Its rosewood fretboard has medium frets for a playing feel familiar to most bassists. Whether laying down a solid groove or showcasing your chops, the GSR205B's neck provides unparalleled playability for the price.

Dual Powersound Pickups

The GSR205B comes equipped with a Dynamix H neck pickup and Dynamix H bridge pickup. These Powersound pickups provide a blend of lows, mids, and highs that suits a variety of musical applications. Roll off the neck pickup for a punchy, articulated tone or blend in the bridge pickup for a fuller sound with solid low-mid projection. Simple but effective, the Powersound pickups get the job done.

Roadworthy and Stylish

Despite its affordable price, the GSR205B is a legit pro-level instrument ready to handle the rigors of the road. Its contoured agathis body and durable hardware are built to last, and its sleek black finish is understated yet stylish. For the gigging bassist on a budget, the Ibanez GSR205B delivers professional performance, tone, and looks without breaking the bank.
