Upgrading an Ibanez GSR190

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Usul, Nov 4, 2000.

  1. Just wondering if would be worthwhile or a stupid waste to put some nicer pickups,bridge,pots,etc. on my GSR190?

    This is a nice lil beginner bass for the money,it was part of the Jumpstart Bass setup that I bought.As soon as tax time comes,I plan to buy a bit nicer bass.

    Can`t and won`t sell my "black beast" even though she is a cheapy,I like the feel of her.Just toying with the idea of upgrading some componants to make her a really decent 2nd bass is all.Thanks for you thoughts and comments!

    Now, if this was a Fender Jazz (or P) - or the Squier versions - or even a cheap (but accurate!) copy of a Fender, I'm sure there are lots of upgrades you could do - different bridges, pickups, hardware replacements etc.

    But - what is a GSR190? I have no idea what it looks like, what the dimensions are and whether there are any upgrades available at all, that will fit without some extensive work being done - and I don't think there are many people out there who will know either.
