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.
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!!
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.
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 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'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.
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 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.
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.
I thought this bass was great. There weren't any major problems. I replaced the strings with Fender Flatwound, and it sounds perfect.
