Ibanez GSR205 5 String Bass

Ibanez GSR205 5 String BassIf you're ready to move onto a 5-string bass, or you're just ready for a new one, this is probably one of the better buys around. For the money (somewhere between $200 - $250, depending where you get it) it's a pretty terrific choice. Most of the bass players I spoke to about the Ibanez GSR205 were very happy about the purchase, claiming "really satisfied; glad I bought it". Or something to that effect.

Some of the specs include 2 J-style pickups, a 22-fret rose-wood fretboard, a 1-piece maple neck with a comfortable "all access" neck joint for easy access to the upper frets, and an Agatis (similar to Poplar) body. It also boasts solid construction and good, hassle-free hardware. Most of the players did a little tweaking to the strings, based on their styles, and one said he'd had to tighten a few screws when it arrived, but he'd ordered it online, so there's no telling what kind of rockin' and rolling it did while in transit. Otherwise, the votes were pretty well unanimous: great bass for the money!

Overall, top benefits, aside from the cash factor, were that it's light, has a fast, thin neck, and a really good feel. From Funk to Hardcore, and pretty much everything in between (even talked to a guy who plays Gospel), they all agreed that they'd made the right choice.

I'd say if you're in the market for a 5-string base, and you don't want to drop a whole lot of cash to begin with, the Ibanez GSR205 is your axe. Great for beginning to intermediate players, or those on a tight budget who don't want to compromise sound, ease of play, or good sturdy construction.

Wessex is retired -- or would be, if murder and danger would only leave him alone. The impossible has happened. Chief Inspector Reg Wexford has retired. He and his wife now divide their time between Kingsmarkham and a coachhouse in Hampstead belonging to their actress daughter, Sheila. For all the benefits of a more relaxed way of life, Wexford misses being the law. But a chance meeting in a London street, with someone he had known briefly as a very young police constable, changes everything. Tom Ede is now a Detective Superintendent, and is very keen to recruit Wexford as an adviser on a difficult case. The bodies of two women and a man have been discovered in the old coal hole of an attractive house in St John's Wood. None carries identification. But the man's jacket pockets contain a string of pearls, a diamond and a sapphire necklace as well as other jewellery valued in the region of 40,000. Wexford is intrigued and excited by the challenge -- until this new investigative role brings him into serious physical danger. From the Hardcover edition.
