The GSR200B is a Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez for 2014 as part of the entry-level GIO line. Two versions have been produced, one made in Indonesia and the other made in China; minor differences between the two versions are noted in the specifications below.

The GSR200B features a double-cutaway mahogany 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 2017 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 2019 the body material was changed to nyatoh (for the Indonesian-made version) or okoume (for the Chinese-made version) and the fretboard material for the Chinese-made version was changed to purpleheart.

The GSR200 is a similar model with chrome hardware. The GSR205B and GSR206B are similar five and six string models. The GSR200BL is a left-handed version. The GSR200BF is a fretless version. The GSR200SM is a similar model with a spalted maple top.
