The Ibanez GSR200 2018 Limited Edition Electric Bass Guitar in is a fantastic model for players of all skill levels that want an affordable model but don't want to compromise on quality. Inheriting features from their legendary S series of models, the GSR200 boasts exceptional construction, impressive tone shaping control, an active bass boost and a playing feel that will keep you coming back for more.
Elegant body shape
The GSR200 features a heavenly body design that combines a super slender depth with softly bevelled edges and curves in all the right places to establish a figure-hugging playing feel. Whether you prefer to play stood up or sat down with the bass resting on your knee, wearing it high or swinging it low, the GSR200 always feels just right in the hands.
The body is crafted using poplar, which is a relatively lightweight wood that enthuses a balanced timbre with an emphasis towards a bouncing mid-range energy. If you want a bass that can shift seamlessly through different genres, then poplar is a great choice as an all-rounder. The finish is complemented by chrome hardware for an understated yet elegant aesthetic.
Lightning fast neck
The GSR200 benefits from Ibanez' wealth of experience in forming necks that are renowned for being super-slim, fast-playing and a joy to run your hand along, whilst retaining an enviable strength that instils confidence in its ability to perform. The maple neck complements the poplar's mid-range energy with an enthusiastic response. The generous 34-scale length affords the strings room to resonate whilst offering just the right amount of slack for enhanced playing comfort. Married to the neck is a 22-fret jatoba fingerboard that is adorned with white dot position inlays to guide your way. The 305mm fingerboard radius allows your fingers to comfortably sweeping across the strings unimpeded.
Representing the timbre of the poplar/maple/jatoba partnership is no mean feat, but Ibanez has carried it off with ease. The GSR200B is equipped with a pair of Ibanez Dynamix pickups, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. This pairing guarantees a smooth and responsive sonic representation of the tonewoods, from warm mid to low tones through to crisp upper mid to high tones. By including the Phat II EQ system, Ibanez has ensured that an active bass boost is present to give even greater energy to your low-end drive.
The Ibanez GSR200 bass guitar carries an affordable price tag that makes it fantastic for beginners, but more experienced players will recognise many standard Ibanez traits in this design: impeccable construction, fantastic tonewoods, diverse tonality, intuitive controls, joyful playability, and with the Walnut Flat finish to seal the deal, this is a bass not to be missed.
