My Ibanez GWB 1005 fretless with the original ebanol fingerboard is up for sale, but only because I'm mightily in need of the money. This is a beautiful, hand made (in Japan) instrument which originally cost me £3,500.
It's only been gigged twice and has spent the rest of its life in my studio. It comes with an Ibanez Prestige hardcase and all the original parts. It is signed by Gary Willis on the back and has only one tiny ding (a few millimeters across) on the bottom of the lower horn and another tiny one just under the knobs. The volume knob recently developed a crackle but some switch cleaner sorted that out.
There is a full technical description on the Ibanez web site, the only difference being that this bass has an ebanol fingerboard not an Ebony one (as stated on the site) or Rosewood (which newer versions have). https://www.ibanez.com/eu/products/detail/gwb1005_33_04.html
Please contact me if you have any questions.

I bought this bass new last month as a replacement for my Double Bass which I had to sell due to wrist problems, however I have subsequently realised fretless bass isn't really for me. This is an awesome instrument with an ebony fingerboard and a maple neck, the body consists of an Ash top with a light and resonant Basswood body. The Aguilar 2 band EQ and Aguilar pickup also sound fantastic.
Full details of the bass specs can be found here:
The bass is strung with a nice new set of D'Addario Half Rounds which won't chew up the fingerboard and includes the Ibanez gig bag (pictured) that it came with.
The bass is not in perfect unused condition as there are some light markings left by the strings on the fingerboard; as you can see from the pictures these are very slight and the normal string wear marks found on a fretless. There is also some slight finish loss on the neck edge of the ebony - again just slight wear. Other than the aforementioned, the bass is immaculate.
I'm looking for a cash sale so no trade offers thanks. I would strongly prefer collection from the Preston Park area of Brighton, so it can be tried out and I don't have to chance sending this by courier in a lightly padded gig bag. However, I would be willing to do a meet up within a reasonable distance from Brighton. Here's my feedback thread:
