The Ibanez Gio range was designed to attract guitarists of all walks of life looking to get a fantastic instrument for their money, without having to break the bank. The GSR200BL is a brand new addition to the Gio series for 2016, and it’s a superbly built left handed bass guitar. It incorporates the best features of the series but switches them over so that a left handed player can enjoy the benefits of this beautiful guitar.
The GSR200BL is built entirely using mahogany tonewood which has been appointed a new Walnut Flat finish, boasting the real presence of the mahogany beneath it. Mahogany is known for being able to produce a huge wealth of balanced tones, yet it also feels light and comfortable to play whether you prefer to stand up or sit down. It follows the habitual double cutaway body to allow easier access to the upper frets.
A GSR4 maple neck is securely fitted to the GSR200BL. Maple offers a smooth, fast playing feel which makes playing the bass feel effortless.
Joining the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays to guide you from one fret to the next with complete confidence.
DYNAMIX P AND J PICKUPS
At the neck position Ibanez have fitted a Dynamix P pickup, partnered with a Dynamix J pickup at the bridge position. These passive pickups project your bass tone with volume and gusto, while encompassing the balance of tones made available to you.
Ibanez include the Phat II EQ also in the GSR200BL which is an additional active bass boost that gives you improved low end tone quality and power.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A B10 bridge sits at the lower bout of the GSR200BL body which maintains a firm connection between the strings and the body, while enhancing bass sustain.
The dark Walnut Flat finish is further complemented by black hardware which adds a sumptuous finishing touch to the overall appearance.
For a left handed bassist who doesn’t want to be left out of pocket, the Ibanez 2016 Gio GSR200BL Left Handed Bass Guitar is an indisputable choice.
