    Anyone have any idea what this bass might be? It is for sale online and the owner claims not to know what model it is and of course didn't take a picture of the headstock. What is known is that it is (supposedly) a late 80s Ibanez of some sort that was purchased in a pawn shop for around $300 (as if that means anything).

    Yeah, I know there isn't much to go on, but I'm hoping maybe someone recognizes this body style.

    Thanks in advance,
    Greg

    I was able to get the owner to send me a shot of the headstock and it turns out to be a Gio of some sort, so I'll probably not pursue it. Would still be interested in knowing the model if anyone has any ideas.

    Looks like a GS200
     
  4. On my older (Korean made) SR500, all the info you'll ever need is on the back of the headstock. Same with both of my newer imported basses of other brands.

    When asking sellers for details, good clear pictures from back there is what you want to ask for, in many cases.

    Good point. The photo of the front was virtually useless! Thanks.

    It does resemble that model. I wonder if they were making it in the late 80s. Or, for that matter, if the bass is actually from the late 80s. Thanks.

    If it's a GSR200, it was NOT made in the '80's. That model started around 1999.
