Product Description

Designed to Gary's exact specifications, the Ibanez Limited Edition Gary Willis Signature GWB20TH represents the latest innovations in Gary's long and fruitful collaboration with the company.

Revered by legions of fans worldwide, Gary Willis is a fusion bass virtuoso. In addition to having a brilliant solo career and co-founding the groundbreaking fusion band Tribal Tech, Gary has recorded and gigged with music's best and brightest. Gary's mastery of the 5-string fretless electric bass is nothing short of phenomenal.

Early on in his career, Willis established a preference for Ibanez basses, and through the years, he has worked with the company on a series of signature instruments that reflect — and facilitate — his unique and jaw-dropping playing technique. Ibanez introduced the first Gary Willis Signature bass in 1999. 

Special features
The GWB20TH is packed with Gary’s signature specs: a fretless ebony fingerboard with fret-line markers, a detachable finger ramp (the "Willis ramp"), and specially shaped tuning keys. In addition to those expected GWB features, this anniversary model is unique unto itself. The basswood body and beautifully grained ash top provide a well-balanced tone with sparkling highs, while a single Aguilar DCB pickup in the bridge position and OBP-2 EQ pump out fat, growling fusion bass tone by the boatload.

The Willis ramp
Key to his incredible right-hand technique, Gary's secret weapon — the Willis ramp — serves as a versatile thumb rest while plucking the low B string. But more importantly, it prevents your fingers from digging in too deep, resulting in a lighter touch with more consistent attack and quicker recovery time. You'll be amazed how the Willis ramp improves your tone and facilitates lightning-fast note articulation.

Aguilar DCB pickup plus 2-band EQ
There are many great reasons world-class bass players such as Gary Willis swear by Aguilar's DCB bass pickup — which make it an obvious choice for his GWB20TH signature model. The DCB, installed in the bridge position, has dual ceramic bar magnets that give the pickup extended range plus a fine balance of dynamic responsive attack, singing sustain, and complex harmonics. The uniform magnetic field of a bar magnet gives each note accurate dynamic response and increased harmonic content, with no tonal information lost as the string vibrates. The Aguilar OBP-2 EQ 2-band equalizer supplies ±18dB of bass boost/cut and ±16dB of treble boost/cut — frequencies carefully selected to make the GWB20TH sound awesome in any mix.

Fretless, with fret-line markers
Gary Willis is a living bass legend, but it was the legendary Jaco Pastorius who first put the fretless electric bass on the map. Believe it or not, there was a time when you couldn't simply buy a fretless. Any that existed were modified fretted models. Much of the mythos surrounding Jaco's infamous "Bass of Doom" centers around what, exactly, he did to the fingerboard during the de-fretting process. Common wisdom is that he ripped the frets out and patched the holes that remained with wood filler; sanded, and then slathered the fingerboard with several coats of marine epoxy to withstand the use of roundwound strings. The takeaway is that the wood filler remained visible. Now, with fretless players at this level, intonation is typically flawless regardless of fret lines, but most of us could use some visual aids when we pick up a fretless. The Limited Edition Gary Willis Signature GWB20TH sports tidy white inlaid fret line markers as well as offset front and side dot position markers.

Ibanez: a brief history
Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn't get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the "Ibanez Salvador" name, which was later shortened to "Ibanez." Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative instruments and had begun manufacturing the innovative original guitar and bass designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
