Patterned on their famous SR 5-string, this Ibanez GSR offers the same alternative approach to electric bass that all SR basses do. Light in weight, heavy in tone, with the fast, thin neck that’s noticeably easier to play–whether you’re a veteran player, or just starting out.
Built to hold its own against pro level competitors, the GSR205SM-CNB features a solid Mahogany body, and exotically Spalted Maple top finished in deep, warm, Charcoal Brown Burst. A jatoba fingerboard, accented with medium-size pearl dot inlays round out the visuals.
A sleek, comfortable, GSR5 Maple neck–widely recognized as the industry standard for playability–and rock solid Ibanez B15 bridge, rev up the specs to accommodate whatever you’re setting out to play.
Factor in Ibanez DXH-5 pickups for clarity and fullness well beyond their price point, and the PHAT-II EQ for ultra wide tonal range and you’ll see why the GSR205 ranks as one of the most-played 5-string basses of all time.
