Superb bass!
Machineboy 12.12.2021
This is not just a great bass guitar for the money, this is a nice playing and sounding instrument full stop! I've had some hit and miss experiences with ibanez instruments over the years, but this bass was really a home run. The short scale and light weight is perfect for guitar players or persons with smaller hands/arms. After some truss rod, string height and intonation adjustment, the bass plays great and sounds really good. Tools are included, along with a user guide to set up the instrument.

PROs:
- Superb fretwork and smooth neck. Easy to adjust trussrod and saddles.
- Good sound by blending the volume of both pickups
- Nice walnut finish, no blemishes on body
- Very lightweight and easy to play after adjusting the string height and truss rod, with no fret buzz
- Good tuning pegs
- Looks and feels more expensive than it is
- Fits in a guitar gig bag

CONs:
- Tone pot a little scratchy at lower end
- Not the best looking maple neck, but very well finished
- A little neck divey (but comfortable on lap)

Ibanez GSRM20-WNF

Firstly, let me state that I am a guitar player, that wants to have a bass for occasional use. I have tried full scale length basses, and find them uncomfortable for my hands, so was prepared to give a shorter scale instrument a chance - and I am so glad that this was my choice. I cannot fault anything about this instrument from my perspective, action and intonation good straight out of the box, finish of frets good, neck and body finish all fine. Played through a friends 80 watt bass combo, this guitar bumps and growls as I hoped for, the range of sounds from the two pickups and controls, most satisfactory. It is, in the overall scale of things, an inexpensive instrument, but there is nothing at all about this guitar that says 'cheap'. It is comfortable to hold and play, and is about the same overall length as most electric guitars, (38.5"end to end). Are there any negatives? For me, no, because my choice was always going to be a short scale, and within the limited range of available product, and at this price point, I would doubt that you could find better. For players with smaller hands, or like myself just more used to a conventional guitar, well worth considering.

Perfect for the price
Farky 06.07.2021
I bought this bass as a gift for my sibling and I can't stop borrowing it from her.
For this price it's a really solid instrument. It feels comfortable to play, it's really light and the size is perfect for a guitarist so if you're also a guitarist and you're worried that a regular size bass would feel uncomfortable to you, this should be the right choice.
When it comes to quality there isn't a single thing I can complain about. The tuners stay in tune, the knobs work smoothly, the neck is comfortable and I haven't found a single sharp edge on the frets.
The sound of both of the pick ups is also good. Nothing special but it sounds better than you may expect at this price.
Overall I can't give this bass anything else than 5/5.

Great sounding and comfortable bass
jazzz 12.11.2020
I am a guitar player that just wanted to record some bass lines to some songs and this is perfect for that! I am really impressed with the overall quality of this instrument for such a cheap price.

The short scale makes it really comfortable to play and easier to do some big stretches that can't easily be done on long scale basses. It is very light and easy to play. For such a small size the bass also packs a lot of punch and cuts through surprisingly well in the mix.

The only problem I have found so far with this bass is that when the jazz pickup is all the way up, there is a significant amount of buzz through the amp. I much prefer the neck P pickup anyway so not a problem for me but if you plan on only using the bridge then this is something to be aware of, I have also heard other people have the same problem.

Overall the I would definitely recommend this bass to anyone not just guitar players.
