The GSR205BF is a five string, fretless, Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2017. It was made in Indonesia as part of the entry-level GIO line.

The GSR205BF features a double-cutaway mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a fretless rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Dynamix 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 2018 the rosewood fingerboard was replaced with jatoba. For 2019 the body material was changed to poplar.

The GSR205B is a similar fretted model. The GSR200BF is similar four string model.

The GSR205BF was discontinued after 2019.
