Comments about Ibanez GSR205 5-String Electric Bass:

I ordered this product in-store on January 2, and it was slated to ship two weeks later. That date gradually pushed back to a month, then a month and a half, then three months after I had purchased it to April 5. I was infuriated at the delay; not the fact that it was back-ordered, I knew it would be before I bought it. Yet Guitar Center's lies were enough. I marched into my local store, receipt in hand, and attempted to cancel my order. The manager told me to call the number on the receipt, and walked away. I then drove 40 miles to another Guitar Center to buy the similar GSR205SM, which I am very happy with. I wrote a review on it. It sounds great. Anyways, the moral of the story is this- if it's not available in store, don't buy it.

    Comments about Ibanez GSR205 5-String Electric Bass:

    Got this bass to add to my arsenal and for practice and small gigs. It's a good, working bass in its price range. Maybe if it had a three-band eq, I would give it a five, but hey, that's why I have an SR 505 as my main axe

      I play just for my own fun, and have playing off/on for 30+ years. This bass is easy to play, nice neck, great sound. A lot of tonal variation with the electronics. Definitely worth the price!

          Been playing music for over 30 years but never picked up a bass. Got this for me and my kids and we love it! Higher quality than I was expecting for this price point. Enough adjustments for the pickups for our purpose. We're having a great time with 5-string bass.
