Ibanez GSR206 6-String Bass Guitar - Black
The Ibanez GSR206 6 String Bass is ideal for both beginners and intermediate players, offering a high quality bass at an inexpensive price, all the while offering comfort, tone, and playability.
The GSR206 features Dynamix H pickups that produce versatile tones, while the Phat II EQ allows you to add additional low-end power for a full and thicker tone. It also features a poplar body, maple neck, and jatoba fretboard, which produces good levels of projection and sustain, as well as a tone full of warmth and depth. The GSR206 GIO offers the same looks, tone, comfort, and rigorous set-up as some of Ibanez's most expensive basses, ensuring that players on a budget get the same quality as the professionals.
Controls & Phat II EQ
Incorporating individual volume controls for each pickup, the GSR206 allows you to blend both pickup tones to create unique full sounds. The master tone control shapes the bass' 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.
Poplar Body & Maple Neck
The GSRM206 GIO is crafted with a poplar body and jatoba fretboard, which offer good levels of projection and sustain. The neck is made from maple, which provides bright tones with plenty of twang.
