Ibanez GWB35 Gary Willis Signature Model 5-string Bass Guitar at a Glance:
Gary Willis inspired design and functionality
The Ibanez GWB35 Gary Willis signature model bass brings all of Gary's personal tweaks and touches to an affordable bass. Gary's extended cutaway gives you complete access to the fretboard to ensure better intonation in the higher frets. Custom wound pickups offer the quick attack, superior dynamics, and highs that you want from a fretless bass. A custom finger rest/ramp helps you not dig into the strings too deep and gives you a more consistent attack.
Puts signature Ibanez feel into an affordable package
Finally, the feel of a high-end bass loaded into an awesomely reasonable priced package. The Ibanez GWB35 sports Ibanez's signature Gary Willis neck shape for an amazing playing feel. It's got a 3-piece maple neck, a comfortably contoured basswood body, and a fretless ebonol fingerboard for classic fretless bass sounds.

I've been a Gary Willis fan for a long time, so I had to get my hands on the Ibanez GWB35 as soon as it arrived at Sweetwater. It is light and well-balanced, and comfortable whether sitting or standing. The coated Ebonol fretboard helps bring out the "singing tone" and M-Wah I expect, plus the neck has a comfortable low profile. Gary designed the finger ramp so that he can't dig into the strings. As a result, it doesn't get in my way and keeps the fleshy part of my finger in contact with the string. The EQ is simple and effective, and compliments the humbucker nicely. I also love the Sure Grip tuners. Bottom-line, this bass should not be considered a budget-priced instrument! This is one of the nicest fretless basses I've played, regardless of the price.
Th GWB35 from Ibanez is an amazing bass for the price! The feel and sound is even throughout the whole instrument. It also plays as good or better than many basses that cost twice as much. It's extraordinarily well balanced - and looks really cool to boot! No matter their budget, no one looking for a fretless 5-string bass would be disapointed with this one!
