    I had a GSR 200 and I really didn't like it that much...
    Can't imagine liking the 100 more. If I did this all over again, I think I would've started with a Squier Jazz that was in the same price range.
     
  6. I have a GSR190 which is basically the GSR200 with a natural headstock.

    I have grown to really like it. It's my first bass and it is great for learning on. Hell,if I goto a gig I'll surely take it with me.

    It's right behind me.

    I just got rid of my 200. I don't think I've ever seen the 190.

    okej thx ... butt dose the 190 have a extra mic. its in the way when you play i think.
     
  9. By mic did yuo mean pick-up?

    The 2 black things inbetween the bridge are called pick-ups,which are basically microphones :smug:

    Yes,the Ibanez GSR190 does infact include a P(split) pick-up,and a J (jazz) pick-up. I find that it doesn't get in my way at all. I think yuo should try a GSR200/100 at a local guitar store before purchasing.

    Have a wall of transplanted low line Ibe's. No GSR 100 but from what I can tell it's just a 190 without a J pup. The 190 and 200 necks aren't just a matter of lack of venier. The 190 has cheaper tuners (but stay in tune as well), and it seems to me the necks are a lower grade material. The body's and electronics seem identical. But I've defintely had less luck getting a decent setup with the 190's than the 200's.

    As long as you can get a decent setup on the bass, and it's cheap, $100 max. It's as good a start as any.

    I like the low line Ibe's cause they're cheap, plentiful, light, have 2+2 headstocks, fast necks, fairly large control bays (for transplanting active electronics/battery), and you can get a decent setup on one. So if you choose, you can later upgrade the electronics with Barts or EMGs (whatever) to get a decent sound and hang with any bass.

    The player makes the bass.
