Ibanez GSR 180 Sunburst. His Handsome Beau


The handle is very nice. For me, who am not a bass player, it's nice not to sweat too much to leave a line of low correct. it allows me to play on my models, troubleshoot a friend, to make the jam.


The sound is right and very satisfying. One can make the walk, slapper, round sound effect for a "wall". I use both a table or in recording and sometimes (rarely) on a guitar amp I put reverb and bass to zero.


As usual, we used an Ibanez entry level which is not a low-end: honest, elegant, this is a very good first choice if we begin, a very good second low for confirmation.

zotsa01's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good bass for beginners"

Ibanez GSR180
4 strings, agathis body, maple neck (GSR4), rosewood fretboard, 22 medium frets
2 PSNDJ Ibanez pickups, 2 Volume, Tone, passive
Bridge: B10 (19 mm between strings, ideal for learning)
GSR Series


Handle very nice, fine, very easy to play. Quality sleeves Ibanez is no longer in doubt.
The strings can be set loan handle without any problems.
Mine was already well set to buy (do not hesitate to ask for an adjustment when you buy a coffee in store).
This bass is very light, nice shape, typical Ibanez.
Micro well placed to handle the slap also very convenient to put your thumb.
Really good bass to start, even if it is a low end, it's still an Ibanez!


2 passive pickups, no problem with the battery! The settings are on the amp.
Lower happening everywhere, not at all typical. We can all play on, but it excels in any style. It will move to the next level to get better.
It is a low power to learn and then choose a more upscale model. This bass will be a great second bass!


Increased very quickly in my hands, this bass is very well suited for beginners who can get their hands on the cheap!
This bass is very easy to play in all styles, fingers, slap, mediator, is its strong point. It will encourage beginners to advance.

Ibanez GSR180
Made in Korea or something like that, it smells the production chain.
Level is not the top finish: rear hatch Exceeds 2mm body,
pots on the trend dvisser ... but in fact that's all I can
blamed this low.
24 frets, two passive pickups
Two volumes and one Tone


Level handle is correct, neither too fat nor too thin.
Access in AIGS is facilitated by cutting Ibanez.
The body easily and take DEFINITIONS scratches, so be careful.
I who used to play with the thumb on the possible micro ct round, this
compltement part is scratched.
Weight: the bin I can not talk about it much because I play almost all the time
sitting, but it is enough balance and, for what little I played standing up, it's going well.
By upgrading its cons ...


Yes, it's the level that it is the drama. Well, our answer to the questions
prdfinies I play instead of mtal on a small amp (yes, I beginners!) 20W.
Well, live branch ... the sound is flat. Nothing, that slab, not any personality
punch, but hey, for a passive that price ... So I bought a multi
effect that "replaces" the lev pramp foot with varying degrees of brilliance. I arrive
and catch a little while!
Using rglages of pots you get not much either ...
I tried changing the strings, ca has changed things a little, but not yet
the top!


Well, it's been almost eight months that I used to take his first steps
not bad, but this purchase will mean another few months
late! Yes, we limit trs fast! Well, I criticize bcp, but I confess,
Premire is my bass and I like it I do not sell it I think ...
on the other hand, if c'tait again I will opt for the big sister, the GSR200, active.
One of my friends has it, the sound is much more beautiful, more pchu ... But, as
I said, it is good to start low.

Ibanez GSR180
22 frets, two passive pickups.
Easy to handle asser learn, Access in acute asser is easy.
Two volume buttons of a Tone.


Its main advantage is its weight is light compared to other trs basses that I used.


Me playing more of metal I think the sound is fairly average ... But for rock it defends relatively better.
However the disadvantage is that you rather have a trs good amp to get a good sound ....


I use it for over a year. I think its main advantage is its weight and price that is affordable trs is a bass that is very well to start I think I made a good choise for start low and give me the model of ENVIT and continue to try other BASSS.
