!ON HOLD! Ibanez GWB-1 Fretless Natural Ash 5-String
£1450

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Up for sale the original Gary Willis GWB-1 fretless bass by Ibanez. The thickest low B imaginable. 

The previous owner has done some great mods:

  • the fingerboard has been refinished with cyanoacrylate
  • the signature from the headstock has been removed
  • tuners replaced with Hipshot Ultralights 

The bass has overall very little wear.

Included is : the bass,  the original hard case, original tuners.

This indeed is a PRO instrument and a keeper. The reason I'm setting it is I switch btw. my fretted and frettless quite often. With the fretted having a 19mm string spacing I never really got used to the narrow string spacing. It makes my fingers stumble and simply does not feel natural.

I'm also open for trades: fretless, 19 mm, bring it on :)

Where are you based?  Also, please confirm the ibanez logo has also been removed from the headstock?

Hi guys, thanks for checking out. I'm based in Europe, Slovakia. I can ship almost anywhere, I'd however be hesitant to ship to South America, Russia, and ASIA-PAC.

@roman_subThe logo (Gary's signature) has been removed from the headstock.

I think there’s someone advertising for one of these in the wanted section.

Ok but the Ibanez logo also appears to have been removed - that’s what I was trying to confirm.

Correct, let's just agree the entire headstock has been sanded off. Please see attached for some greater details.
