Der schicke Ibanez GSR200 B bietet ein hervorragendes Handling und eine große Soundvielfalt zu einem herovrragenden Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.
Dank seines aus Mahagoni gefertigten Korpus und dem geschraubten Ahorn-Hals mit Palisander- Griffbrett liefert der Ibanez GSR200 B einen warmen Grundsound mit langem Sustain und gutem Attack. Durch das schlanke GSR4 Halsprofil, die satinierte Halsrückseite und den 12" Griffbrettradius lässt sich der Bass äußerst komfortabel bespielen.
Durch seine Tonabnehmerbestückung mit einem Dynamix P Splitcoil in der Hals- und einem Dynamix J Singlecoil in der Stegposition deckt der Bass ein breites Soundspektrum von Funk über Rock bis hin zu Metal ab. Mithilfe des aktiven Phat II EQ kann das Low End geboostet werden, was dem Sound mehr Punch verleiht. Daneben stehen individuelle Volumen-Regler und eine generelle Tonblende zur Kontrolee über den Sound bereit.
Die Ibanez B10 Brücke verleiht dem Bass eine perfekte Intonation auf allen Saiten, während die zuverlässigen, gekapselten Stimmmechaniken für eine hohe Stimmstabilität sorgen.

Features: It has a nice weathered finish and 22 frets, Aghatis body and a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The bass is very solid for it's price and even though I treat it roughly, there's not a spot on the finish. The bridge is good for the price, though the G string gets out of tune quite often. The bass features 2 pickups, one J-style and one P-style, both active, and along with the 2 volume pots it has an additional treble and bass boost pots, which gives it a great variety of tones. Overall it's pretty decent as a budget bass. // 8
Sound: I play lots of different genres, from funk to thrash, but I tend to lean towards the heavier stuff. The neck pickup is great for the heavier lines, especially when using a pick. The bridge pickup has a wonderful, sharp tone. The ability to mix both pickups, along with the active boost, gives the user plenty of options sound-wise. I use both fingers and pick, rarely slap it though, and although the sound is decent, it really bugs me that it has a certain "volume jump" while playing, especially with fingers, and it can cut through a mix easily, which can be pretty annoying. I use a Laney RB3 Richter Bass amp with it, and it really has a nice punch while distorted, easily capable of playing Motorhead-style lines. // 7
Action, Fit & Finish: The bass came with a nice setup, had no complaints there except for the action which was way too low. The guitar didn't have any major flaws besides the low action. The only thing that really annoyed me is the fact that the screws are virtually nailed in butter, and after a few days with a strap one of them just popped out. Worst part is that it happened to me while performing, and we had to stop so I could fix it. Still has some duct tape on the long horn of the guitar. But that aside, it's pretty well constructed. // 7
Reliability & Durability: I've played it live a couple of times, jammed out in the HOT desert sun, and it withstood it like a rock. I jumped and went crazy with it and it just took it all without any scratch, so yeah, I think it's definitely capable of doing live performances. The hardware doesn't seem like it's going somewhere, overall it's solid and in decent shape even after years of abuse. The strap buttons, as I mentioned earlier, are the weakest link, and I advise you all to use them safely, perhaps even have them replace. I wouldn't use it in a gig without a backup just because of the strap button issue, but that aside, sure. The finish is really solid, I have my share of instruments and even some of the more pricey ones can't match this finish quality, it's really something else. // 8
Overall Impression: I play mainly heavy metal, but sometimes play alt rock and some other similar genres and this baby can pretty much cover it all. I don't know if I could recommend it to any professional since I'm only an intermediate player but It's a wonderful instrument for beginners and intermediate players. I've been playing for 1.5 years, didn't even take one day off. I own one ESP LTD AX-104 and A Squier Modified Vintage Bass, but I'd never sell this one, probably because I'm way too sentimental about my instruments. I don't have any regrets buying it, it served (and is still serving) me well. If it was lost - no, I wouldn't buy a new one, probably because It's more of a beginner's bass whereas I'm already past that stage, but I'd look everywhere to find this one again. I love the fact that it has a lot of sound options, this makes it very versatile, which is what I need. //8
