Who says that a high-quality bass guitar has to cost a bomb? Not Ibanez. THe GSR200B Spot Run Bass Guitar in Weathered Black has an entry-level, economical price but produces a well-balanced range of bass tones that you would hear from a more expensive Ibanez model. Ibanez run various tests to ensure the setup of the guitar is precise and it includes superior features that make it stand out.
The GSR200B has a solid mahogany body construction with a wonderful Weathered Black finish. The use of mahogany in a bass guitar body stabilises the overall feel, providing comfort as you hold it whether standing up or sitting down. Mahogany is a fairly dense tonewood which delivers a pronounced voice with warmth and plenty of sustain in both the lower mids and higher ends.
A GSR4 maple neck is firmly fitted to the body of the bass with a 305mm radius and 34-inch scale length. Maple is an enduring tonewood that is built to withstand plenty of use. Topping the neck is a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets at your service. The cutaways in the bass body allow you to easily access even the upper frets and explore them freely using the white dot inlays as your guide.
The GSR200B is kitted out with a Dynamix P pickup in the neck position and a Dynamix J pickup in the bridge position. This pairing produces an incredibly punchy sound output with plenty of rich, classic bass tone. These passive pickups are further intensified by the addition of the Phat II EQ bass boost, giving even more low-end drive. Other controls include Bridge Pickup Volume, Neck Pickup Volume and Tone.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The GSR200B has matching black hardware to complement the smooth, Weathered Black finish of the bass. A robust B10 bridge is firmly secured to the lower bout of the bass, enhancing sustain and resonance of each bass string.
The Ibanez GSR200B Spot Run model is a superior bass guitar, ideal for beginners, younger musicians or perhaps anyone looking for an economically-priced guitar that has all the sound of a higher-end instrument.
