The GSR200 is a Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2004. It has been made in both Indonesia and China as part of the entry level GIO line; minor differences between the two versions are noted in the specifications below. It replaced an earlier model with the same name.

The GSR200 features a double-cutaway agathis body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Powersound passive pickups with a Jazz pickup at the bridge and a Precision pickup at the neck, a B10 bridge with 19mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2014 the body material was changed to poplar. For 2015 the Powersound pickups were replaced with Dynamix pickups. For 2018 the rosewood fingerboard was replaced with treated New Zealand pine (for the version made in China and sold in Asia, Africa, China, North & South America and Oceania) or jatoba (for the version made in Indonesia and sold in Europe and USA). For 2020 the fretboard material for the Chinese-made version was changed to purpleheart.

The GSR205 and GSR206 are similar five and six string models. The GSR200L is a left-handed version. The GSR200B is a similar model with black hardware. The GSR200EX is a similar model with a different body material and pickups. The GSR200M is a similar model with a maple fretboard. The GSR200FM and GSR200QM are similar models with, respectively, flamed maple and quilted maple tops.
