I have had this bass (in translucent blue and black) for about 4 months now, it is my first one and I love it. It sounds terrific through my G-K halfstack. It can make just about any sound your looking for. Plus with the active electronics you cant go wrong. If you have any questions email me.
This is a great bass. The features are incredible for the price. The Phat bass booster really gives you the punch to break through the music when you need it. Also having complete control of both pickups really comes in handy. Even the pickups out for a great rock sound or do some adjusting a find the sound that makes slap sound that much better. That's right, with the tone controls on this baby, it doesn't matter what you are playing this bass can do it, and do it good. When I first received it I immediatly put Dean Markley Blue Steel medium-light gauge strings on it. After you break the bass in (along with the strings) there is absolutly no fret buzz at all. Also, this beast is rugged! I don't know how many times I have dropped it, bumped it, or accidently let it hit my ceiling fan, it still plays as good as the day I bought it. It is cheap! I recommend this bass to beginners and experienced players alike. You can always trust Ibanez to deliver a quality bass at a low price without sacrificing anything that is on the more pricey basses. Oh did I mention the one bad thing about it? You don't own it yet!!!
This is an awsome guitar. It has a great sound, but it buzes on a couple of frets. other than that I love it. I highly recomend it as a beginning bass or as a second.
This bass is a perfect bass for any beginner. There is only one problem, the frets are too big, causing a buzz. NO matter how good your finger positioning is, there will always be a buzz unless you do something about it. Overall, this is a great price for such a good bass
I just purchased this bass from musicians friend, and I am seriously impressed. Where do I start? This bass plays sweetly right out of the box and with the quilt top they are offering now, it looks stunning. The split pickup configuration is perfect for someone who doesn't stick with one style of music, not only that but with the active bass boost this thing gets pretty funky. My only complaint would be the tuners which don't hold well. If your shopping for a bass and want the best value this is it.
I just bought this bass today and overall I'm pleased with it. I own another Ibanez 4string so I figured I'd stick with wut I know is good. I like the active booster, and I love the quilted finish...Overall I feel it's a great bass for the buck.
This is the first bass i ever got and its lasted me so far for 3 years. I really recomend it to any beginning bassist. It does buzz sometimes though. But all in all I think this is a great bass and definetly worth the price.
This is a nice bass for the money. Most guitars priced in this range usually suck but this was actually pretty decent.My brother wants to be a bassist and we had to choose between the Squier and this Ibanez. He picked the Ibanez because we both agreed it sounded much much better. The squier sounded flat and had no tone at all. This sounded a lot better.Overall if your starting this is a really nice choice. It also has two pickups one single coil and one p badd pickup. I was impressed with all the different sounds you can get with both of them unlike the J Bass or P Bass when you can pick one or the other.Anyway if you want to start the bass guitar this is the one you should get. Ibanez makes some really good low priced basses and I definitely recommend it. Necks darn good too.
I bought this guitar because I have been playing electric for a little while now and I wanted to learn to play bass... This guitar sounds great. The lows are really nice and the high are great as well. I bought the guitar in the translucent dark amber and it is really nice looking. The bass boost works really well and if you need an amp and you don't want to spend alot of money I would certainly suggest the Behringer 15 watt Thunderbird. The two together sound really good. Overall I would say that for the money this is a really great guitar.
I thought this bass was great. There weren't any major problems. I replaced the strings with Fender Flatwound, and it sounds perfect.
My first bass, bought mine used from a friend. I have never experienced buzzing, as some reviewers have, but yes, it does come out of tune after a couple of days playing it a lot, but that's not hard to fix. I have bumped and dropped mine a few times, and it has stood up better than one might expect, although the head seems to like hitting the ground first, inadvertently turning each of the tuning knobs :POverall, an excellent choice for a beginning or experienced bassist. You won't be disappointed.
I have always had a thing for ibanez guitars. My intro to electric guitars, was an ibanez, and my first bass was a black GSR 200. I currently own a GSR 200 in a quilted maple top, and love it. The features are easy to use, and to tome is great. I can tune it, leave it for a month, and it stays in tune. The active pickups are an added bonus compared to earlier GSR 200's. My Partner also plays an ibanez bass(15 years old) and his is still rocking out, though the action is begining to go out. I would highly recoment this bass.
I've had this bass for about 4 years now, and I have to say that there is almost no reason not to buy it, whether you are starting out or need a backup for you other bass. The GSR200 has a few flaws: it's not the coolest looking, and the output jack on mine had some issues. However, it's cheap to have the jack serviced or repaired so it shouldn't be an issue.Everything else about it is great. The pickup controls let you get sounds that you cant get out of other basses, and the neck is one of the best I've played (i also own an American made jazz bass). I highly recommend this bass for any level of musician.
This thing is a sweet little bass. Great for the price, great for the beginning musician. It also has a nice slap tone to it which I love. The first time I played this bass I loved it. I've never played it through an amp yet but im sure it would sound great. I'm looking forward to buying one once I get enough money.
Wow, this bass is great. I love the PHAT EQ boost it takes your sound and blasts it through the roof. It comes in especially handy when I am playing in my band and am trying to get over 2 guitarists and a drummer. The neck is also so comfortable!! I definitely recommend it to anybody on a budget, but still wants a reliable bass.
I've had this bass guitar for about one year this december. I absolutely love it. I've played for almost 6 years now and this is my third bass. Great for practice and shows. I did happen to replace the strings when I bought it but they were still good in the beginning.
Played in store (Not this finish) and bought on-line. Yes, it's inexpensive, but still a very nice bass. Knowing it was 'inexpensive' I KNEW the strings would have to be replaced right away. It's just the way it is. So I also bought a set of Ernie Ball hybred round wounds. Also replaced the 'whatever' 9-volt battery with a Duracell.Being as I had the strings off, I decided to check all the hardware fit and tightness. I was really pleased that the nuts on the machine heads were nice and tight, as well as the screws on the tail.The only things I had to do was tighten the truss rod a bit and set the intonation. Both were real *close* but not quite right. Easy stuff. String height was fine for me.Was very pleased with the finish and happy to find that ALL the knobs actually DID something. Volume on both pick-up's/tone/and the PHAT II Booster, all contour the sound.All in all, the only thing that bothers me a bit, is having to remember to unplug it, so as not to run the battery down... But this is my first bass with active pick-ups, so this is just a minor inconvenience. I tried a bunch of other basses in THIS price range and kept coming back to this. Even all the Squire basses costing up to $100 more, did not equal this.If you're looking for a decent bass in this price range, I'd highly recommend it!!
Of the basses i've owned, this is deffinately my favorite. It's got great tone right out of the box. While most people would get annoyed by the active electronics (needs a 9v battery) I've had to replace it once and i've owned it for two years. Especially love the seperate knobs for the pickups, that helps you get that perfect sound your looking for. I would deffinately recommend this bass to my fellow bassists.
this is a good begining bass that sounds good with distortion and plays well. the only problems are that it does not stay in tune very long and it's neck must be adjusted almost every other week to prevent buzzing. but over all this is a good bass for beginers, when playing in a REAL BAND i prefer a gibson SG bass. but if you are new at playing buy this bass now
I am a beginner. I have only tried 2 other basses before this one, but this bass is by far the best. I have one in teal and black. This bass sounds great, feels great, and is beautiful. The neck had to be adjusted a bit, and it had a slight buzz when I got it, but it was all easily adjusted. I would have liked it to be a little less expensive, but after I looked around, I couldn't find a better bass for the money. I highly recommend it.
