    Recently traded for this incredible bass. I've just decided 5 string is not for me.

    Bass is super light and lowest action I've ever played. Minor light surface scratches and a couple light dings so small you don't even notice. Will ship with brand new D'Addario EXP coated strings and Gator soft case.
    $1200.00 paypal preferred. Ship con us only. PM me with interest. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1389142166.972951.jpg ImageUploadedByTalkBass1389142185.466603.jpg ImageUploadedByTalkBass1389142197.391662.jpg

    Never seen one of these up close. Is that ramp adjustable? And what's the deal with those funky tuners?

    This is the older original ramp style that's secured by tape... Like Willis use to do and level with the fingerboard which is Ebony Wood and not Ebonol Composite like the newer ones...

    The Tuners are designed by Gary Willis and are Proprietary lightweight Sure-grip triple wing tuners - The most advanced Hi-Tech Tuners I've had...

    Ash Body - Maple Neck - 34" scale length, 45mm nut width, 12" fretboard radius, a Bartolini Willis bridge pickup with a push/pull volume knob to bypass the EQ, and a stacked EQ knob with treble and bass controls.

    To sum it up - It's the Ferrari of fretless basses IMO. Killer tone and very resonant.

    Very nice, I have one myself! It kind of looks like your ebony board has a finish on it. I bet it sounds amazing

    The new models now have a finished Rosewood fingerboard.

    To my understanding, the 2003 models started having finishes.

    Can you post sound clips? I was thinking of having the board on my GWB-1 finished. I talked to Willis about it but he said that ebony has it's own sound and that's where the convo ended but I'm stubborn, I'd really like to hear what yours sounds like.
