Ibanez GSR205 GIO 5-String Bass Guitar Black Highlights

  • Affordable 5-string electric bass
  • Versatile Dynamix H pickups
  • Phat II EQ control adds additional low-end power
  • Poplar body and jatoba fretboard offer good levels of projection and sustain
  • Maple neck provides bright tones with plenty of twang
  • Produces a smooth bass tone, with excellent warmth
  • Tone control, bridge and neck volume controls

Rock Solid Construction

As with other models found in the Ibanez GIO series, the GSRM205 is crafted with a lightweight poplar body, and a super-sleek maple neck.

The end result is an entry level bass that offers an exceptional playing experience, whether you're completely new to the instrument or a seasoned professional.

Versatile Electronics

Sitting at the neck and bridge positions on this electric bass is a set of Dynamix H humbucker pickups, both of which have been voiced to handle the extra string.

In addition to this, the on-board Phat II EQ circuitry allows you to control the output of these pickups and dial in the tone you need.

What's A 5-String Bass?

Bass guitars usually come equipped with 4 strings as standard, however you occasionally come across a 5 or even 6-stringed bass (anything more than that is just showing off).

In this case we have a 5-stringed bass, which features a Low B as the thickest string, as opposed to the usual E. This extra string gives you even more notes to play around with, and is suitable for almost any musical style.

Technical
Does it matter what the fingerboard on a guitar is made from?

Apart from making a big difference to how the guitar looks, different types of wood can feel and sound quite different when you're playing on them, and their differing feels can subtly affect the way you play.

Rosewood: Soft-feeling and warm-sounding, rosewood fretboards are popular for good reason.

Maple: Offering a brighter tone with more high end, Maple fretboards also wear over time which can be attractive if you want your axe to look lived-in. 

Ebony: similar to maple in tone and sturdier than rosewood, ebony fretboards offer a darker-looking neck with a brighter tone.

Does it matter what country a guitar is made in?

Despite what nationalists might tell you, there's not really any simple answer. Even though many companies design their guitars in the USA or Europe, the vast majority of instruments are actually manufactured in China, Mexico, Indonesia, Japan and Korea. There aren't any 'rules' as to what country makes good or bad guitars, but rather which brands have tighter quality control.

Does body shape matter?

Surprisingly, it does.  Wood type is not the only thing that affects the tone.  The shape of the guitar can also influence the sound.  As some shapes require the use of more wood than others, it can definitely give the tone a different texture.  Some shapes will also work better if you are performing seated as opposed to standing.  You also can't discount the importance of having the right "look" if that is what you are going for.
