Ibanez GSR205B; an awesome 5 string bass from the Soundgear Gio series, combining excellent playability and craftsmanship and at an affordable price.
Seen here in a brilliant Weathered Black finish, this 5 string bass guitar has awesome style to match its incredible tone and playability.
Ibanez 5 String Bass
Don’t let the modest price tag fool you; the GSR205B brings with it all the comfort, tone, and playability you’d expect from the famous Soundgear, or SR bass series from Ibanez and performs above and beyond what you can expect from instruments in this price range.
Furthermore; as with all the instruments in the Gio range, it has undergone the same rigorous inspection and set-up that Ibanez insist on for their more expensive models.
Bringing you that classic SR style, the body of the GSR205B has been crafted from Mahogany with its deep horn design offering great access to the higher frets; perfect for solos and adventurous bass melodies.
The fretboard is a classic Rosewood featuring white dot inlays and is found aboard a specially designed 34” scale GSR5 neck made of maple.
Electronics with Options
Giving the GSR205B its great sound is a pair of Dynamix H passive pickups, one each found in the neck and bridge pickup positions.
To give you full control over your tone you will find four knobs. There are two volume knobs; one for each of the pickups so you can get the balance just right and you’ll also find a control allowing you to adjust the overall tone.
Installed alongside these controls you’ll find a knob for the PHAT II EQ system. The PHAT II EQ is an active bass boost system that adds additional low-end power, giving that extra oomph when you need it.
All Around Great Bass
With its great craftsmanship and sleek Weathered Black finish, the GSR205B-WK has an awesome look to match the great playability and tone.
Great for playing hard and heavy songs but with a smoothness and clarity that makes it suitable for a wide range of styles, the GSR205B is a versatile bass guitar and having gone through the same rigorous inspection and set-up that all Ibanez instruments go through, you know you’re getting a high quality product.
