Get Pro Performance With This Ibanez GSR205BK Electric Bass Guitar With A Solid Mahogany Body In Black Gloss Finish

A guitar could cost a bundle and sound good. This model just sounds good, without that first part. The Ibanez GIO series was developed for players who want Ibanez quality in a more affordable package. Not only do they look and play better than everything else in their price range, but their rigorous inspection, set-up and warranty is the same as Ibanez's more expensive models. Ibanez GSR models feature maple necks and mahogany bodies for easy playing and warm tone. The white dots on the rosewood fretboard provide excellent contrast for bassists of whatever level. The Ibanez GSR205ROM is clad in a Black Gloss for great looks that rival much more expensive models. The PHAT II active bass boost offers additional low-end power on all the Ibanez GSR200 Series models.
