Ibanez GAXB150
Made in China
Short sleeve (short scale) 20 frets, just over 5cm That a telecaster.
One relatively close to the microphone stand.
Ibanez bridge Made in U.S..
A knob for sound and a selector 3 position high / low / medium.


The neck is quite pleasant, not too thick, access to the treble is fairly complex shape of the bass does not properly use 2 or 3 last fret!

The body of the bass is less heavy than the handle, with a smooth strap handle is pointing towards the ground! Therefore very difficult to obtain good fluidity when to play with his right hand and hold the bass!

The simplicity of the settings is maddening, 3 positions possible acute (my choice), low (as low unbearable) and medium (very good for old rock).


I play this bass with virtually every style, where I tried: p!

I have a Behringer Ultrabass BX600 amp, and I use that position to give acute sounds about right!
I try on different amps notement Hartke, Fender .. we see it as soon as the bass slows .. lol!
It is quite enjoyable to play simple songs, that the slap is borderline impossible. Cons by a metal style, you will not be disappointed with the sound it provides is of very heavy!

As explained above the acute position is a good compromise, providing a sound enough fat on the bass, treble, but still quite "dirty" for my taste.


I use this bass for a year and a half now, I started thanks to her.
In fact I think for beginners, it is very very good, the settings are in just a few minutes, and playing simple lines take you immediately to taste this magnificent instrument.

I lack experience in this low compared to others and can say if it is this which is absolutely necessary to get started.

I bought this bass used, and I do not regret at all for the price it's a very good entry level bass!

It must still admit that it feels very fast "constrained" by the quality of play it offers, if one wants to play music a little more groovy this low net stop this beautiful dream.

With experience I will ever be the choice because it is the bass that give me the urge to play!

The ibanez GAXb 150 is a passive bass that indonsienne posse of a round of 32 '(so short) 20 frets

The mic (a SOAP BAR DUAL COIL) is of fairly good quality for an instrument of class. against by the selectuer of Tone offers only three options: a sharp bottom, bottom and a low medium. It helps beginners to choose the sound, since there are only three possible choices, we do not pass his life fiddling with buttons!

For life, it must take, even if the bridge is a little "fake", if one cares, I see no reason why it breaks.


The neck is short and thin enough. rather enjoyable to play with a satin varnish that does not fit the palm of the hand with the sweat.

Easy to learn, fun. The lightness of the whole can play in comfort, and the body well and dcoup end is enjoyable to wear.
access to the treble is pretty average, but hey, it's a bass, not a shred guitar.
access to the volume is fairly easy, but the Tone selector is a bit far I think.
The bass has a nice shape and is lgre scne on what must be nice, but the concept is pushed too far, because the body is less heavy than the handle, once the scene of the handle must be a trend from down, which is perhaps not the most enjoyable.

The 3 posisitions tononales are somewhat cartoonish, but still usable, even if
position "while low" is a bit "too" in the lower right ...
The sound is still pretty good.
Position "while acute," we get a good sound of slamming to slap. the mdium to my preferences, for finger style.


This little lower first price is really nice: pr-tone look DCAL RULES to avoid getting lost in rglages, it is aimed priori to beginners, but bass levels can be reunited with their account, because the violin is honorable for the price.

it must be able to adapt to many styles, but it will sculpt the sound with his amp.

the sound that my preferences is the sound mdiums, very suitable for finger style.

After we have to see if the mechanisms are much the tuning, which is not ...


I only test this bass, and AIM I have the body shape, the lgret of all the finesse and the handle.

In terms of minimum, the handle is heavier than the body, it sucks a bit, and length, the abscence of finesse in rglages must be weighing

I test a lot of models and it is an original alternative to cort action bass that abound. However, it can be prfrer her older sister (the DBMS 200 if I remember correctly), active, classic shape a little more going on everywhere (too bland), but also more "spiral"

Give it a try, I pretty personal AIM is quite enjoyable to use.
The sounds are very sharp, it's pretty fun.
short, fun for little money (less than 200 new now)

Ibanez GAXB150
Made of Indonsie
20 frets, ultra short run, it is larger than a Start, a width of hand.
A micro
1 3 switch positions
a volume knob
3 switch positions of the corresponding three dominant low / medium / high
no pickguard
clean look, finish treating


The handle is enjoyable, Access in acute, however dlicat 14ME from the hoop, especially since this bass suffers a big dsquilibre at the r partition of the weight, the handle is heavier than the body and dives littralement if we play up and that the loose.
The sound is good, but the three switch positions are slightly caricatured, a good amp is needed for fine tuning.


This bass is versatile musically, although it provides a limited range of sounds. I play an Ibanez sound wave 35 that has the minimum features to refine the sound and works well. Finger or plectrum.
With good strings and a good amp, has done.


I use it recently. Purchase 160 is a low "booster" that has a lot of quality. Ideal for beginners.
I like the simplicity of rglages (this is the least we can say), its sober its small size, lgret.
Its default is the large weight dsquilibre rpart evil that can be said that ESG game since we constantly keep diving. Table MRIT of being heavier, I even wonder that such a diffrence in time can give ...
I do not regret this choice, is an instrument for its sound trs affordable and jouabilit.

Ibanez GAXB150
-Made in China ... but good qualities.
-20 Frets, a microphone, but its three different (very convenient).
-Everything has been said previously.
-Handle 32 "


-The handle is Assé enjoyable.
-As for the extreme treble () it is a little hard but it explains the rest.
-Very good ergonomics, weight is suitable, perfect for playing up.
- It's easy to do nothing is the sound is directly nikel, no need of adjustment.




I use it for a short time a week.
I prefert is its shape (small balanced ...) and its very convenient.
"It is an EXCELLENT point price / quality ratio is really its strong point: D.

Ibanez GAXB150
It produces a low in China
22 frtettes I believe (I to r diese on ground)
there is only one versatile micro extrremement
there is a volume and a three position selector that offer the most common settings (trble thoroughly, thoroughly bass, and a medium bottom)


Then ...

the handle is super fun to play the treble are easily accessible
she looks terrible, very well balanced and relatively light (as heavy as a head scratching BC Rich warlock bronze series widow)
to get a good sound, in fact it was not much choice but these three settings conviennet me perfectly (I play mostly black)
has noted, the bass is relatively small (like 15 cm shorter than a standard jazz bass)


I play the black and is totally perfect
I play on a 80-watt yorkville suporte very well the huge sound
ba in fact the sound is very premeire Clak type metal (I do not use characters with the distortion)
the second are more than rich in low and makes a sound huuuuge
the third is a bit like the first but less Clak


Ben I been using it for two weeks (we are 15 May 2005)
I really like its shape, its sound, I do not blame him
then I hallucinbr />
it costs only 250 euros !!!!!!
but I swear that the sound is huge!!

Of course I would do this choice!
