Simply put, if you've been in the market for a powerful 5-string fretless bass that blows the competition out of the water, you need to get your hands on the Ibanez Gary Willis Signature.

Gary Willis is renowned for his incredible playing technique, and this instrument is all about exceptional playability. Its ebony fingerboard is glass-smooth, while the fret lines provide a visual aid to ensure consistent and accurate intonation. On top of that, this bass comes with a Willis ramp, a thumb rest that helps while plucking the low B-string. Using the Willis ramp, bassists will notice more control over their note articulation, as it prevents them from digging in too deep.

Ibanez basses are loved worldwide for their versatility, and the Gary Willis Signature 5-string Fretless Bass offers a wide range of tonal options. Its Bartolini GWB pickup delivers a delightfully dynamic sound with punchy lows and crisp, clear highs. If you need more flexibility, push down the master volume knob, and you'll activate the instrument's 2-band EQ. With that engaged, musicians have complete control over their bass and treble frequencies, whether they want something with more body or brightness.

The Gary Willis Signature 5-string Fretless Bass isn't just a world-class instrument with a killer sound and feel. It's also a visual work of art, courtesy of its Silver Wave Burst finish and stark black hardware. Players will also appreciate its grained ash body, not only for its looks but for its dual lower strap buttons. These allow bassists to choose their strap position depending on their hand technique, guaranteeing an optimal playing experience.
