    I don't know about saying it is good, but it should be sufficient for your first bass.

    I have one know. A good first bass cause of the slim neck.

    If you have enough for a mexican fender p or j bass, then get that.

    I'm pretty happy with mine, but try out as many basses as you can first. Also, some gsr200s are better than others.

    I have the Ibanez GSR 200. I only started playing bass in early February so its still the bass I use. It sounds good and I like it. It's better then that friggin Fender P-Bass that everyone has. Many people suggested to me it was a good bass for my first one. Mine only cost 209 without tax so I think its worth it for a first bass.

    Why is it better than the friggin Fender P bass?

    If it weren't for the friggin Fender P bass, your Ibanez wouldn't exist either.
     
  10. ALL cheap basses are friggin' *%#$ :)

    It's your duty to find the bass that is the least $%&^, be it Fender, Ibanez, Dean or whatever.

    Scotland,
    It's hard to belive, but even if it is the firsat you ever layed hands on a bass, you feel big differences when you play several basses.

    Also, make sure your bass has a truss; look at the head, and see if there is a hole where the fretboard ends.

    Um, I'm assuming you are talking about the squier, cause the made in america p-bass whips the gsr200. The gsr200 is a good beginner bass though, if you get the right one.
     
  13. i got mine in december of last and i've played the cr@p out of it to the point where the neck is a whammy bar(temporarily till it breaks) and the laquer on the neck is worn out from the first to twelve fret but also i've been playing for about 2 hours a day
