MGR/Handi-Capable Bassist's review"Ibanez GSR 200"

Ibanez GSR200
I am just getting back to playing Bass. After a service time loss I have only 3 fingers and thumb on my left hand and only nubs and a thumb on my right hand but love music and wanted to play again. I bought the Red quilted finish.

I bought this bass from guitar center 179.99 after looking around a few places to have a good solid unit to try to play again with in my hands.

The bass has a wonderful feel to it and sounds great through the ampeg 50w I am using. the P/J pick ups all work and the knobs are first class and have no dead spaces or fade issues. The look is beautiful and it feels good standing or sitting while I play.

The strings that came on this bass were garbage. Only a small adjustment to the neck made this bass ready to play.

Well made it is a little tank of a bass. I feel very sure that this bass could withstand a strong thrashing and still play well and be ready for the next gig.

This bass is a great starter, on stage performer or practice unit. It really fills the room with quality sound when asked to play.

MGR/ctargia's review"Ibanez GSR200"

Ibanez GSR200
Jewel Blue Finish

I bought this at Guitar Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in April of 2002 for $200, it was my first bass.

This is a great beginner bass, it as great sound and playability. It will definitely last a long time and has good resale value. It is surely a better choice them some other beginner basses that are not made of sufficient quality. This bass will not let you down, it has a good tone for rock genres and will last you a long time.

Is not the high quality, but you get what you pay for, I prefer neck-through compared to bolt on design, and a stronger wood on the neck than rosewood. And I prefer a bass with 24 frets, this only has 22.

Good construction and quality, I did have an issue years ago were the screw that held in the strap at fallen out, some toothpicks and glue later, I re-screwed it in and it held up for years after that. Other then that I can't really complain about the construction, it lasted me 8 years and then I sold it for half the retail price, this thing can handle it.

Great first bass that wont break your budget! If your a pro, look elsewhere.

MGR/Hoagie's review"Ibanez GSR200(BK)"

Ibanez GSR200
I've been playing guitar since I was a little kid but have been playing the bass since January of 2007. I play blues and classic rock basically. I've been in a band for a little over a year now.

I bought this from BISCo for about $220(if memory serves). I bought it because my friends and I were starting a band and we needed a bass guitarist(already had a lead guitar) so I figured I'd take on that role since I already knew how to play guitar.

I picked up this bass guitar in January of 2007. I was VERY pleased with the great sound that came out of this. I didn't have a bass amp at the time so I used my friends electric guitar amp and it STILL sounded perfect. Even with an electric guitar distortion pedal this thing adapted very very well. You can't get a better bass guitar for the price.

Very sturdy. I accidentally dropped it from waist-height and it barely got a scratch on it, you can't tell it's there unless you look for it. I was more than happy with the quality of this bass guitar.

Overall, considering the price, I believe you get your money's-worth, if not more. You won't be disappointed.

MGR/Alex The Awesome's review"Ibanez GSR 200"

Ibanez GSR200
I Have been playing bass for only one year. In my year of playing i have been in a band gor 4 months and all i do is play. Since I have only played bass for a year my knowledge of the insturment is limited. But over the year of playing i feel like i have grown as a musician. I like playing what me and my drummer like to call "Improv. Funk" There is a bit of slapping involved and lots of fast fretting.

I got this guitar at Musiciansfriend.com for around $210. I got mine in black

What i like about this bass is the playability. When i picked it up i wasnt heavy like the basses i use at my school. The Neck is a comfertable size. The pickups are great for the "classic" thumb rest. This Bass is great for someone starting to play. Its something you could pickup, plug in and jam with years after your purchase

One thing i really didnt like about this bass is the strings. Ibanez uses weird strings. When i first plugged in there was an annoying buzz. I raised my action to try and prevent the buzz, i removed the string which was a pain with the string through bridge. I then ended up replacing the strings and poof. problem solved.

This bass is one solid piece of work. Once it gets tuned up and customized this thing will never die. I have dropped it off a table, sat on it, tripped over it, even almost broke a mirror with it but nothihng unfortunate has happened.

Bottom Line is this bass is a great piece of equiptment and would easily be the best choice for someone starting out on bass. Its great for your room,a garage band, or even jamming on stage. The only problem i faced was the bridge was kinda annoying with the "string thru" style and the strings that came with it are crap.
