  • Big tone from choice tonewoods

Big tone from choice tonewoods

The deep tone of alder mixed with the high-end snap of a maple top give the Ibanez GVB36 Gerald Veasley signature bass the response and range 6-string bass players want. Couple that with a solid and stable 3-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and you have an amazing playing and sounding bass. You'll instantly notice the shorter string spacing on the GVB36, 14mm instead of the normal 16.5mm, and how much easier it is to play chords on. Grab an Ibanez GVB36 Gerald Veasley bass and see how great a 6-string bass can be.

Dial in a great low end with humbucking pickups

While the Ibanez GVB36 Gerald Veasley bass is unquestionably a great looking bass guitar that plays like a dream, but you also want your bass to deliver earth shaking lows and crystal clear highs. That's no problem thanks to the specially-designed Bartolini MK1-6 neck and bridge pickups which are matched to the Bartolini EQB-IIIS 3-band EQ circuitry. This combination allows you to quickly dial in your perfect bass sound regardless of your individual style and preference. From roadhouse blues to jazz fusion, the GVB36 delivers the perfect sound every time!

Mono-rail IV bridge enhances definition

The Ibanez GVB36 6-string bass packs the ultra-innovative Mono-rail IV bridge with locking saddles, which allows each string to fully vibrate without any interference with the other strings. That means that no matter how fast you play across the strings, each note will ring clear and true.

What an excellent bass. My background is guitar, so six strings appeals to me, except some six string basses have string spacing that is too wide. Not this bass. Out of the box it had excellent action, intonation and playability. It's at least as playable as my Jazz bass. It has a great shallow U neck that feels comfortable and ergonomic across the range of the instrument. It has a great tone. The bridge keeps the sound articulate as advertised. I like this bass so much that, if Ibby made a 30-inch scale GVB36 model, I would buy it instantly. Excellent value for the money, and it looks better in person.
