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
David305 05.04.2016
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.

Perfect for the price, a joy to play, minor flaws only
George.b 29.08.2023
I bought it 2 months ago, overall I am very happy with it, there are some flaws but pros are much more important (given the price of it)

It's my first short scale, 28.6'' scale, even shorter that the standard 30'' scale. When I bought it was my 2nd bass in general, first was a Harley Benton JB-20 which I liked but I find it VERY heavy and sold it)

Pros
- Its very small and so LIGHT!! 2.6kg (5.7 lbs), much lighter than my Stratocaster guitar - I really like that
- No flaws in the fretboard, no fret edges, satin neck is very smooth, a joy to play
- sound is fine, especially the neck split coil
- 22 frets! that are easily accessible
- I really like the Walnut flat finish, but this is just a preference.

Cons
- electronics/wiring: a thing that I'd like to fix at some point in the future
a) tone pot is actually an on/off switch - no progress at all
b) tone control also act as a volume control if you don't have both volumes turned all the way up - if they are it does not happen
- I find string spacing a bit wide - probably is the bridge placement that makes G string to be very close to the edge of the fretboard
- Some basic setup was needed, bridge-string height adjustment and intonation but this was something expected - neck was fine
- There was a small flaw in the finish in the back of the body. It seems that at some point they tried to fix something and they made it worse... I decided to keep it since I don't see it :)
