"Ibanez GSR205"

Ibanez GSR205Published on 01/05/05 at 15:00
paid 199 pounds from merchant city music

this thing grows on you,build quality is excellent the metalware is great,and you will hear the neck is great >> its more its blissfull to play,the phat system and the range of dull thud to tin metal tones is covering all timbres the finish is top class i say this having tried,tested inspected may basses in this price range >> get one !!you will not part with it

just a couple niggles
1) the battery cover should be quick releas not have to use a screwdriver
2)i had a faulty volume pot,when i inspected the soldering joints they were badly done, Indonesians need to be trained better,it was amature
3)with a low B string the set up has to be exact i......

3)with a low B string the set up has to be exact i made several changes
probably needs a pickguard but>>>
its a hell of a bass for the money

very well made electrics could be better installed,the fretts and neck are top class,the saddle is also nice,the sustain is awsome

can hold its own with much more expensive models,i love this bass,just try one, i will get a 4 string soon but this is # 1 for me

I got the 205 at a local music store in Ohio and paid 350 for it.

This bass has a lot of low end to it with a good phat sound to it. It is a good for a beginner who wants to play a 5 string.

The low b string way over powers the others and I had to mute it in most of my play. The passive pick ups don't do much for slapping either.

I never had any problems, it's a tought bass.

It's a good first 5-string with a good price.

got this baby on the net.. paid $200.

the lines on the body are brilliant and there are no sharp edges has a complete body camber ( we call it Human Technology!)

the factory action is a bit low so the allen spanner comes into action here

the bass is black, agathis body and rosewood fretboard. standard pearl dot inlay with chrome hardware.

Local music shop, Socodi Music, Canterbury, England, i payed £230

It has served me well, i really wanted to learn how to play a five string bass, and so i got one, and believe it or not i prefered it to a four string by a mile. It been excellent for learning on. I dont know what all this fuss is about the strings being to close to play slap on, i think its just great! much easier than on a broader neck.

Now that i'be been playing for a while the bass has become a limitation, but then again it wasnt the most expencive thing so i did expect that, after having found the same thing with cheep guitars. Its passive pickups and circuits mean that i can create all the sounds i want, and the......

Its passive pickups and circuits mean that i can create all the sounds i want, and the strings go out of tune all the time!

Not exactly brilliant, but then again i want to by a warwick, stuff like the amount of wood chippings that fell out when i opened it, and the fact that the stlap buttons kept falling off.

A good learner bass, but expect to buy a better one if you want to get better
