Thanks to its classic P/J pickup configuration you are provided with a wealth of stunning tones. Its standard P pickup offering punchy tones, while the standard J pickup delivers a mellow soundscape.


Independent volume controls and master tone knob provides excellent tone shaping, with the addition of Ibanez's powerful Phat II EQ to infuse the overall tone with extra low-end power. Constructed from a poplar body, maple neck, and treated New Zealand pine fingerboard, the Ibanez GSR205B GIO Bass delivers beautifully balanced tones and a sturdy construction perfect for the aspiring bassist. A perfect performance at an amazing price.

The GIO Bass comes equipped with two powerful Standard Dynamix bass pickups. This tried-and-tested combination, of a punchy "P"-style split coil neck pickup and mellow "J"-style single coil bridge pickup, allows the instrument to achieve everything from warm jazz sounds to thunderous rock tones. The two pickups are wired to individual volume controls and share a master tone control, letting you dial in the perfect sound for your playing style.


Incorporating an individual volume control for each pickup, the GSR200SM allows you to blend both pickup tones to create unique full sounds. The master tone control shapes the bass's frequency response, letting you dial in your own desired preference. Additionally, the built in Phat II EQ circuitry allows active style bass boosting via its one channel EQ preamp, delivering a beefy and deep tone for when you need to add an extra layer of thunder.
