Im not gonna say if i like it or don't like it because its all personal preference so im just gonna talk about the bass itself and let you decide if its good or not. First, The bass itself is a pretty good starter bass. the color is nice, especially if you get it in a black finish with nice chrome hardware to top it off. But the neck of it is quite thicker and wider then a normal bass so it can make problems to reach the e string and 1st frets. The volume knobs rub up against the body creating friction and could cause a scratch so i would suggest pulling them up as soon as you get it. Another plus, is it stays in tune very well. Im actually suprised at how well it stays if you have it in drop b or even bringing the strings a half a step up. The amp is under appreciated. People don't understand its a PRACTICE amp so they tend to bash it. so if you want a nice tone keep it low. If you wan't something louder your gonna have to buy another one. This bass helped me learn bass.

bass is great for learning but stinks as soon as you add any variation and slap is impossible with sharp pickups crowding under strings. easy to use when playing straightforward but no options for funk or metal. gear is terrible. strap snapped after a month, tuner flashes randomly when your not playing any notes, bag blew out because bass barley fits into it, headphones fall off wire, amp is made so all volume comes between 0-.5 on the nob. dont be fooled and think its loud; after .5 it tops out and thats all you get. plug for amp is tempermental and turns amp off if shifted slightly (not good in the middle of a gig). altogether its something you can learn on but after a month it just gets on your nerves. oh and immediatly get the trust rod straightened when it comes in.

Awesome Beginner

By ReadyMan

from Madison WI

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I have had this bass for about 2 years and this bass is great for pluggin' away, but if you try slapping or extremely fast riffs, this thing ain't what you'd call PROFESSIONAL. The pickups' size is clumsy and the style of body is not good for big-framed guys like me. BUT, if you're a beginner, it's perfect. The upside is that learning is pretty easy on it, and that it looks kinda cool. The bass amp is muddy when turned up loud. The strap is softer than others I've used. And I had to replace the gig-bag with a case. Awesome beginner Ibanez Bass.

Not so bad

By Alex.1111

from Illinois

See all my reviews

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I first bought this pack because ive been playing guitar for about a year and wanted to explore more forms of music, the first thing i noticed was the color,it was nice and sleek especially the chrome hardware, then i noticed how light it was which is good for playing long shows. But then i noticed the things that came with it, the strap is bad but it does the job,invest in a new one because the old one will fall off easily,the tuner worked for a month then blinked random lights, the amp is okay for quiet playing but when you turn it up you can feel air literally, its like a fan everytime you strike a note, needs new strings also, so invest in a new,better amp and this bass will rock!!!

Great for Begginers

By September's Hostage

from NC

See all my reviews

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I got the beautiful "Bass Jumpstart Pack"about six months ago, and I am very pleased. For a begginer, this is the perfect pack. The bass itself is ideal for learning how to get good technique and even just jam around. The elctronic in it aren't bad either. They're a great way to learn the bass and see what sounds you can get from the pickups.The amp on the other hand, is nothing special. If you turn up to anything over 4 it will sound way too rumbly, almost like it's just air blowing out of the speakers. But, if you plan to use it just by yourself, maybe even a backtrack or music from your MP3, it will be fine. It is also great to learn how to get decent tone, but you have to keep the volume down.Overall, this pack is great as long as you're not planning to gig, or even practice with anyone more than a couple of guitarists. Besides that, you will not regreat this bass kit.

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I've been shopping around for a Starter Bass Package for a few weeks. Then I found the Ibanez IJXB190... Perfect. For the Price it can not be beaten. The 15Watt Amp isn't going to fill a Hall with sound, but for a Beginner it's a nice little practice Amp. Very little sound distortion and only when the Volumes up past 8... The Bass: It's a Mid-Scale Bass, not as Large as Fender P-Bass not as small as an Ibanez Mikro-Bass. Perfect for a Beginner, especially a kid. The Tuner's just fine. The Bass's action's a little high & some very minor Fret Buzz outta the Box, but anyone with a little Guitar knowledge can adjust the Bridge/Trus Rod (I'd recommend any Beginners take it to a shop for a "Setup" dont do it yourself if you dont know what you're doing). I'd give it a 5 if the Strap wasn't such a piece of garbage & the action was better setup. But it's a SOLID 4.5 SOLID!

A Bad Starter Package

By BassBoy2000

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

This package does feture a decent tuner and amp, but the gig bag hs a very cheap zipper and the headphones are vry fragile. Also, the strap is weak and the three sound knobs become loose very eisily.

Great Bass.

By Ryan-UiXTQ

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I bought this pack a year ago, I mainly bought it for the price and because it came with an amp, and I didn't know anything about it. At that time I havn't even heard of Ibanez. Now I can see how great the sound of this bass is, after trying out many other ones. The amp is kinda low end, but I use it for my recording system. Overall the bass is way better than the other packs on the market such as the squire pack which my friend bought and the knobs broke off. No matter what level you are, this bass is a great buy, although if your not looking for all the extra crap that comes with it then I recommend getting the gsr200-this one's the gsr190.

GREAT!!!

By *#..

from Winnemucca, NV

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I got this for christmas since i wanted to start learning something to play, but over the past 4 month this bass has served me well. The video taught me about 90% of what you need to know when starting. The only things that bothers me is that the bridge on the E string moves around (alot when plucking) also there is alot of fret buzz on the first 4 frets which can be fixed.But the thing that bothers me the most is that the you can't really adjust the tone, the knobs are split pickup volume, bridge pickup volume, and the total volume. The cord should be replaced immediately with the strings. But i highly reccomend this for learning then after a year or so step up to something better.

awsome bass

By Erc810

from Madison, WI

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

This bass is amazing, i got it for my birthday as my first bass. It stays in tune nice, its really light,i have had a few issues with the output jack, but i just took off the back plate and tightened a bolt and its good now, other that that ive had no problems.The amp is nice but only for jaming solo or with guitars (drums are way louder).The tuner is nice.The dvd is pretty cool, it dose a nice job of teaching you the basics of bass and also has a paul gilbert concert on there.Bottem line, if your a beginer on a bugget or looking for a nice,light weight backup-bass to jump around with this is a great way to go.

Better then the Squier Starter pack for sure!

By BassManFreddyG

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I remember picking up the bass about 5 years ago, and my first bass was a squier P-bass that was part of their jump start pack. It was alright but I didn't know any different. My friend just got this pack for his senior project (he's learning the bass) and I was very impressed with the bass for being in a beginner pack. All around it felt more solid and played much better than the squier, and I enjoyed having the P and J pickups when fooling around with tone. Great bass to learn on, I even enjoyed playing it. It's no Warwick, but it's pretty decent.

Not a bad starter pack

By Spikedguy182

from W.V.

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

The Ibanez Bass is pretty good. I've had mine for a couple of years and it hasnt had any problems, except the bridge hums when I strum the E string. The amp isnt that bad, however, it buzzes when you try to get a lot of sound out of it. The music cable and strap, not that good, mine messed up just a couple of days after I bought it. The cd that teaches you how to play. Doesnt teach much, but good for someone new to playing bass. The tuner still works fine. Overall if your new to playing bass, then buy.

it's a bass!

By mr. guy-VBssG

from pocono lake, PA

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

This was the first bass I ever got and even after playing much more expensive basses in stores it's still my favorite. Yeah, I know, that sounds insane. Be warned, you'll be replacing the cable and strap within a few months though, HOWEVER, those aren't that expensive. Whatever.

By Ras

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

I'm just learning to play bass, and with no musical background at all. The DVD that came with this kit is an awesome tool. only real down side I have seen so far is the cable it's kinda cheap and you get alotta buzzing cause of it but I just got back on here and bought a new cable and its great had it for 3 months now and no major problems.

Very Good Deal for the Money

By Average Joe

Comments about Ibanez IJXB190 Electric Bass Jumpstart Pack:

Although I have only owned this guitar for a month, both my private instructor and my band instructor have commented on how excellent the guitar was. In fact, my private instructor saw only few differences between mine and the one he has had for 15 years. This is an excellent starter pack for the money. The amp is amazing, although it can buzz at times, and I absolutely love the headphones. The guitar itself is great quality, but the strap is dirt. It's okay for normal use, but I would suggest getting a newer, better one. Overall excellent pack for the beginner. The black color is great!
