      Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

      I have played bass for 45 years. I have a Fender JP90, Fernandez thunderbird copy (circa 1985) and an older P-bass. This bass is a joy to play. It is light and well balanced. The neck is almost as slim as a 6 string electric guitar and the frets are smooth. Sound is flexable due to the combination of both J and P pickups. Phat Bass boost works well and I run it at about 1/3 all of the time. Set up was really good, intonation on point and the D'Addario strings are sweet. I play through a Fender BXR 300 combo . I would reccomend this bass to any one!

        Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

        Really enjoying this bass. The walnut finish is classy and the sounds are great. The shorter neck is perfect for my smaller hands. I had another experienced bass player work it over and he was very surprised at how much bass you get for the money.

          Comments about Ibanez GSR200 4-String Electric Bass:

          I bought this cheap bass in order to record bass lines. I am primarily a guitarist and was a little bit tired of using samples to record bass lines. This bass does the job impeccably.

          It is light weight, which means notes are going to vibrate in a different way due to the reduced mass or density of the wood in comparison with a heavy bass, but with a good reverb and eq the problem is solved easily and my back does not hurt after practicing and recording. Anyway basses have different characters, like guitars, there is the Rickenbacker sound, the Hofner sound, etcetera, this bass has its own sound which is good. Music is a creative activity, not a copy and paste hobby.

          It came with the action too low, so I used the Allen key that comes with the bass. It took 15 minutes to raise the action to a normal playing without fret noise. I don't use a pick only fingers and I have big hands, now it sounds beautiful, smooth and clear.

          The Phat EQ is great to add power, volume and life to the notes. For the fact that I raised the action, I did the same with the pickups, it took me another 15 minutes of trial and error, measuring the distance with a ruler and following the instructions provided in the manual.

          A great and fun bass for what I need. It has a smooth neck.
