  • Ibanez - a brief history
Ibanez miKro series delivers huge sound in a compact package

If you're a young student (or just have really small hands), the prospect of playing a full-sized electric guitar or bass can be intimidating. That's why Ibanez has created the miKro series. Because of their shorter scale, miKro-series instruments are just the right size for your budding rock star. Sharing many features of their larger counterparts, miKro-series instruments deliver sound way beyond their size, letting small hands make big sounds!

Ibanez - a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan; however, the company didn't get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the "Ibanez Salvador" name, which was later shortened to "Ibanez." Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.

Ibanez miKro GSRM20 Short-scale 4-string Electric Bass Guitar Features:

Good Tone | Easy to Play

I needed a miKro bass a long time ago ;) As a guitarist, even with larger hands, I prefer this bass to any full-sized options. Easy to transport. Along with a compact amp, it doesn't get any easier. I'll be practicing more often because this instrument is easy on the hands - the easiest-to-play bass I've ever owned.
Music background: I've been playing longer than I'm willing to admit ;)

my favorite bass

our band had 3 guitar players and could not find a bass player so i volunteered to switch and the mikro feels like a regular guitar sounds like a bass and plugged in to my TC Electronic amp it will blow the windows out of most bars we play in.. i love it..and the chicks in the audience think im playing guitar. it is perfect for the guitar player who wants to play bass or needs to due to a lock of a real bass player

I'm in love

I'm a beginner bassist, still learning to play; and this beautiful bass is EXACTLY what I needed. It's light, comfortable, less challenging than its bigger brothers, and a gorgeous piece of kit. It's not a small thing that this is the first bass I've played which allows my short, stubby fingers hit most of the frets without pain. I'm still learning, and don't know any of the technical terms and such yet; but I couldn't be happier with the bass. Even my instructor is jealous, and I know he has a bass worth hundreds more than this one. The service from Sweetwater was also outstanding. Sam has been just awesome in finding the items I need, and I won't buy from anyone but Sweetwater again.

four string and five string Ibanez MiKro basses

First, I'm a guitarist. I love these small basses. Just wanted to say the intonation issue is easily remedied with m3-.05 machine screws of the appropriate length. under $0.30 each from a hardware store. my two 4 string flat walnut MiKro basses were fine, but the 5 string needed two shorter screws on the B and E saddles. So if you can turn a screwdriver you can fix this for next to nothing. I found that the bridge had two different length screws, and the shortest 2 weren't even on the B & E. Anyway, these are great fun for guitar players or younger players, not an entry level instrument in any way. Thanks!

Nice Bass!

UPS delivered this today. Unboxed it and was immediately impressed with the light weight of the bass! I tried a full size bass last month but could not get used to the size and weight. This Ibanez Mikro is super easy to play, comfortable to hold and appears to be built very well! I really like the flat walnut finish with the black hardware. If you are a guitar player who wants to transition to bass, this is the easiest way to do it. Very happy with the purchase price and it was packed well, shipped fast by Sweetwater!
