Very comfortable fretless with good sound

05.11.2016
The Ibanez GWB205-NTF is an Indonesian made fretless.

This is the mid-priced Gary Willis signature bass. One of three models.

The bass features the bass ramp, which Willis is famous for. Also Bartolini p/u and preamp. It has a very tight string spacing (16,5 mm), which may be very tight if you have big hands.Polished ebony fingerboard on a 3-piece maple neck. Very comfortable! The ash body has a very thin coating, which according to Willis, makes the tone better.

The only issue with this bass is the fingerboard, which is poorly leveled, and some of the fret-markers are a bit higher than the f/b, causing buzz and dead notes on different spots.
Keep in mind the this bass is not handmade as its Japanese big sister.

Despite the fact that Quality control seems rather poor, this is a good buy. This bass will eventually become top notch after necessary adjustments are made. Easy played and very responsive. Clear sound with a huge B-string. Well balanced and light weight. The preamp is silent.

This bass has a huge potential and is highly recommended.

VERY GOOD EXCEPT THE ELECTRONICS

Ferran C., 19.11.2016
Very good service, perfect weight, balanced well finished in all respects, the impressive mast is working very well, a bright and a bit sharp, low body but serious.

Everything good except the electronica, for me is poor, a single pill and to be active very little stuck and a fairly poor dynamics, the control of bass and treble has very little effect on the sound with what is not much choice.

For the all very good
