    Comments about Ibanez GVB36 6-String Electric Bass:

    I gotta say this bass is exceptional. I love the string spacing. I also like the Bartolini pickups and the EQ. Once I got down a few solid tones that I like its pretty easy to key them in. There were some complaints about the pickups and EQ in some of the forums, but I played this through 3 different amps and it sounds great. I play some jazz guitar so kicking out chords with the 14mm spacing makes this bass killer! Kinda bummed a bass with this price tag and a name (Gerald Veasley) doesn't come stock with a case.

    Comments about Ibanez GVB36 6-String Electric Bass:

    I think I was the first person to order this bass from MF - in fact, I know I was.
    When I attended one of GV's Bass Bootcamps, I was lucky enough to play one of HIS basses. It is an amazing instrument. So is the GVB-36. The finish is sexy. The tone is top notch. So well put together.
    BUY ONE!
    Bartolini pickups are sweet. Finish is down RIGHT awesome. Very well assembled.
    I've only minor complains, keeping in mind that this is not a $5,000 instrument.
    Mine has a burr on one of the machine heads and the eq controls don't feel the same.
    But, my oh, my - this is an amazing instrument for the money.
    The options that were on my list were all about $400.00+ more. In that I"m not a working musician I didn't want to justify the expense. With that said, I feel as though I got more than I paid for.

          Comments about Ibanez GVB36 6-String Electric Bass:

          This is the most comfortable 6 string to play.
          I've refrained all these years from playing them because the necks are so wide and they would cause my wrist to ache after 20 minutes of playing.

          Not with this bass. The best feature in my opinion is the 14mm bridge spacing and the slim, almost electric guitar profile size neck. It's an absolute joy to play this bass and reaching for chords or to the B string feels effortless and natural.
          Not all players will like the 14mm spacing but for me it's exactly what I was looking for.
          Great bass.
