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:
