Ibanez GSR200 Gio Bass, Black
The Ibanez GSR200 is the Ibanez GIO series take on their own, renowned, Soundgear series of basses. The GIO series of instruments have the tones and playability that will please the pro, at prices that go easy on the purse.
Ibanez Dynamix Pick-Ups and PHAT-II EQ
This GSR200 features a pair of Ibanez's own 'Dynamix' Pick-ups in the classic P/J combination. These give you a wide range of available tones, and everything from mellow to punchy is available from these bass. Straight from a few simple tweaks of each individual pick-up's volume control. It also has a built-in PHAT-II EQ giving you a single channel bass boost to add a little extra 'thump', 'beef', or 'thunder' whenever you need it, right there from the bass.
Super Fast Ibanez GSR4 Neck
With a combination of the Ibanez GSR4 profile neck, and Ibanez's trademark lightning fast playability, this a great playing starter bass. If you're just starting out you don't want to spend your first weeks and months on the instrument wrestling with high action and a chunky neck. Ibanez have designed the GSR200 with this in mind with the clear intention of making them one of the easiest full-scale starter basses available.
These are Ibanez's way of making entry-level instruments, without comprising on the core Ibanez brand values. They are still built to their regular, high-spec, exceptional standards. But with a few tweaks that mean Ibanez can produce guitars and basses worthy of their heritage, at prices most can afford.

My 1st Bass. Very happy with it apart from being heavy handed and breaking 2 strings. Sounds great thru an amp and has low action. I would suggest as a beginner/intermediate guitarist.
