The Ibanez 4 String Bass Guitar (GSRM20TR) scores 4.3 stars among nearly 90 verified purchasers on Amazon. That tells us this undersized bass has a lot going for it. It seems that this short scale bass is a favorite among traveling bassists, which means it must deliver in the sound department, as well as playability. It's also a great bass for younger players who find the weight difference a big plus, as well as the fact that all the frets are within easy reach on this 28.6" neck. Certainly worth checking out! (A great Christmas gift for the learning and traveling bassist).
FROM THE AMAZON WEBSITE:
Don't be fooled into thinking the Ibanez gsr micro is a toy. It’s made to the same high standards of the other gio series guitars. The Gsrm20 features, small scale SR body, full sound pickups, the same construction, same materials, and same set-up and inspection as its full size counterparts. Its shorter 28.6” scale makes it perfect for tour buses, space-restricted home studios, folks with smaller hands, as well as young rockers or beginners.
