Incorporating individual volume controls for each pickup, the GSR200B GIO allows you to blend both pickup tones to create unique full sounds. The master tone control shapes the bass' frequency response, letting you dial in your own desired preference. Additionally, the built in Phat II EQ circuitry allows active style bass boosting via its one channel EQ preamp, delivering a beefy and deep tone for when you need to add an extra layer of thunder.
With a body constructed from mahogany, the GSR200B Bass produces warm, smooth tones with plenty of depth. The mahogany construction means the bass is also lightweight and durable. The GSR200B is crafted with a maple neck and jatoba fingerboard, which offers good levels of projection and a good amount of sustain with a clear ringing tone. The neck is made from maple, which provides bright tones with plenty of twang.
This GIO Bass Guitar comes equipped with two powerful Dynamix bass pickups in a classic "P/J" configuration. This tried-and-tested combination, of a punchy "P"-style split coil neck pickup and mellow "J"-style single coil bridge pickup, allows the instrument to achieve everything from warm jazz sounds to thunderous rock tones. The two pickups are wired to individual volume controls and share a master tone control, letting you dial in the perfect sound for your playing style.
