    Ibanez GWB1 Garry Willis signature 5 string fretless. Very light. Rare original model with ebony fretboard and trans black flat finish

    It has a few nicks etc that I've done by best to highlight in the photos. All are surface only. Fretboard wear is minimal, I'm sure the ebony fretboard has helped with that.

    Ash body and ramp
    Maple 34″ scale neck, 3 piece
    Ebony lined fretboard
    Bartolin1 2 band preamp
    Ibanez hard case

    $1100 shipped in lower 48.

    NO trades please. Paypal/money order. NO international shipping please.

    He is on the cover of the latest BP magazine. Bump for a cool fretless.

    I was just gonna say that! I was reading the article and looking at the pics and thought, "It would be cool to have that bass."

    I wish.
     
  4. Great offering, David. Let me ask you a question. How would you characterize that pickup placement? It seems like something between a sweet-spot placement and a 60's Jazz placement. I am thinking this gives it a somewhat rounder tone...

    Cheers.

    Hi,

    How old are the strings on the bass and what type of strings are they?

    Thanks!

    Hi
    Hard to characterize, but I'd say that's probably a fair assessment.
