Pros: Nice sound Easy to setup and tune Fretboard works for medium sized hands Great look Easy to play Cons: The body is too light, this means that you wind up holding the neck up with your fretting hand Long cut fret wires. The fret wires are cut long enough that you are running your hands over the rough edges every time you perform a slide.

I bought this GSR206 at Guitar Center in Clearwater, FL. because I wanted to try 6 string without spending a lot. It's also rather lite at just over 8 lbs , which I like. The neck,frets and body are very good and the good staff made for a pleasant purchase experience. As usual for an Instrument in this price, some work will be needed. first the strings will have to be replaced ( I put some D'Addario's on it) Minus 1 star for a bad nut. The notch for the E string was cut too deep, so the open E was un-playable. The tech at the store had a compound to fill the notch to the correct height. (thumbs up to him !) Minus another star for a bad bridge. The height adjustment screws were too short, and the tech didn't have any. They are hard to find so on-line may be the only way to get them for some people, so I am Including the specs. It came with M3x8 metric set screws, too short. You will need some M3x10 and some M3x12's.

    Comments about Ibanez GSR206 6-String Electric Bass:

    I personally love this bass a lot. It has a very nice tone and when you hit the low string with the bass booster all the way up, its a really deep sounding note. Took me a while to figure out what setting my amp should be at without overpowering the room. Only reason I didn't give it 5 was because it requires batteries and that's a huge pain especially when you have 6 hour band practices trying to write new songs.

        I never played a 6 string bass, but I tuned it, and started jamming out and could never be happier, unless I went to a 7 or 8 string, ha ha.

        Comments about Ibanez GSR206 6-String Electric Bass:

        The bass was shipped and was so messed up it was unplayable. The action was so out of adjustment the strings wouldn't even tune or play even when playing open strings. The guitar did include a card with several different "inspected" stamps but clearly that was not done and not true. After paying a local professional $100 for a full setup I am now enjoying playing the guitar. Not the best job Guitar center.
