Ibanez GSR205 - Reviews Ibanez GSR205

paid 199 pounds from merchant city music

this thing grows on you,build quality is excellent the metalware is great,and you will hear the neck is great >> its more its blissfull to play,the phat system and the range of dull thud to tin metal tones is covering all timbres the finish is top class i say this having tried,tested inspected may basses in this price range >> get one !!you will not part with it

just a couple niggles
1) the battery cover should be quick releas not have to use a screwdriver
2)i had a faulty volume pot,when i inspected the soldering joints they were badly done, Indonesians need to be trained better,it was amature
3)with a low B string the set up has to be exact i made several changes
probably needs a pickguard but>>>
its a hell of a bass for the money

very well made electrics could be better installed,the fretts and neck are top class,the saddle is also nice,the sustain is awsome

can hold its own with much more expensive models,i love this bass,just try one, i will get a 4 string soon but this is # 1 for me
