My name is Luke and I have a unique and impossible to find fretless bass for sale that I am sadly not using at all in my current groups Here's my tale........... I had requested a willis sig from my local guy at GC and he assured me that one could be had with the ebony fretboard, even though I pointed out that it had been out of production for a few years now, replaced by the vastly inferior (IMHO) ebonol. Well, he placed my order, and after a month of waiting, lo and behold I got one of the newer ones with the ebonol board. I wasn't happy at this point, seeing as how I paid 1700 out the door for the 'rare and impossible to find' version, so I had my guy try a little harder this time, and I found that Hoshino(who own Ibanez) actually has 5 or so of the ebony-board Willis basses that were never sold! Needless to say, the bass I am offering is indeed 'new' in the sense that it has only been in my hands for the last three months. Its hard to describe the tone of this thing, except that it truly has a transparent sound that is responsive to every set of hands it encounters. Gary must have taken a course in ergonomics, because it is the most comfortable bass to play live, both in the light weight and in the light touch needed to play it correctly. The ramp allows for you to refine your attack and makes the instrument more expressive. Anyways, I'm asking $1050 shipped anywhere in the USA including the original box and packaging. Hit me back via email or on TB. Thanks for looking!!!
