The GSR325 is a five string Soundgear series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2006. It was made in China as part of the entry level GIO line.

The GSR325 features a double-cutaway basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez passive jazz pickups, a B15 bridge with 16.5mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Ibanez tuning machines.

For 2018 the rosewood fingerboard was replaced with treated New Zealand pine or jatoba. For 2019 the fretboard material was standardized as jatoba.

The GSR320 is a similar four string model.

The GSR325 was discontinued after 2019.
