    Comments about Ibanez GSRM20B 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    Sure this bass would be a good instrument for people with smaller hands BUT this is not a starter instrument in any way. This is an excellently made bass with a awesome walnut color finish. Some players will want to swap out the pickups. I did myself. I have two other full size professional bass' but the Ibanez has become my go to bass. It seems bass players are resistant to change and feel others need to "buck up" and feel the pain of a large bass. But really the argument ends when you realize that the worlds most famous and best bass player played short scale bass' (i think his band was the Beatles or something). I really hope that Ibanez will make a deluxe version!

      Comments about Ibanez GSRM20B 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

      If your interested in a short scale bass, don't hesitate. Just buy this one. Adjusted action and pickup height and was ready to go! Could acually see myself playing live with it as it is very light weight with less shoulder fatigue than a regular bass.

        Comments about Ibanez GSRM20B 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        This is just awesome. I bought this bec it's short scale for prac use and good for tight spaces but to my surprise, it really sound excellent and solid. I have my FENDER jazz bass that I've been using for years and I put that aside and this become my go to bass guitar. I just had to adjust the action and intonation to my liking and wow!
        It is so light and feel I can play it for hours....

          I'm a guitarist, but this was easy and fun for me to use on my solo album. Very good sound. Fits well in the bag that is made for it.

              Comments about Ibanez GSRM20B 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

              I have played on and off for over 40 years. I bought this to make it a piccolo bass - I've want to do this for a while. I got the short because I didn't want to stretch as much playing chords. It sounds really good with the bass strings. It also sounds really good with piccolo strings. The sun burst looks good too. Light weight and easy to play The intonation was good out of the box. Now I want the 5 string version to have the high C like my 6 string bass.

                Makes a useful piccolo bass. I put on a set of Dadarrio GUITAR flatwounds, using the 050/040/030/020, and it worked out great.

                    You better be quick if you want a deal on one of these because I'm buying every scratch and dent that I see. I hope you're on my gift list! OK I bought 2 so far and couldn't find any defects worthy of noting, one even came in the factory box.

                      this was back ordered.... then saw it as a scratch and dent level 3 for "cheap" and snapped it up. It was much darker than shown on the website. I had to look pretty close to find the very minor dents on the back. Set-up was perfect enough, so may have been done by previous purchaser. The strings may have been replaced, but if not, I'm playing these 'til they're dead as a door nail, sounds great! Plays great. I'm 64 years young, been playing guitar for 52 years and this small bass is second nature to me. PERFECT FOR ME! ....really wish it looked like the pic on the website, so i have another on order. Fantastic bang for the buck. It will maybe make a great gift, if I can put it down.... I cannot!
