Ibanez beginner bass guitars are a fantastic choice for the beginning bass guitarist. Ibanez electric bass guitars have long been known for their great looks, high quality and fabulous playability. Ibanez is one of the top selling bass guitar companies in the world. Ibanez first drew attention in the '70s and '80s with their neck-thru Musician basses with active electronics and have been a favorite of Rock and Metal players since the late 1970s.

Regardless of price point, an Ibanez electric bass guitar will give you high quality construction, great looks, playability and high value for your money. Ibanez has too many models to list on a single page so I'm going to list examples of models that you can get for $400 or $500 or less, which I consider to be a reasonable amount for a beginning bass guitarist to spend on their first instrument.

Check out the goodies below and enjoy! And, by the way, these bass guitars will provide you with sound, features and playability that will last you long past your "beginner" stage of playing.

    The Ibanez Gio GSR200FM Bass Guitar features a mahogany body with a Flame Maple top and a maple neck with a 22 medium fret, rosewood fretboard with pearl dot position inlays.
