rha61's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez GWB1
Fretless bass minimalist japan
swamp ash body selctionnbr /> handle 34 "maple ebony fingerboard with white landmarks freight
1 custom Bartolini pickup
Bartolini preamp NTBT active / passive with Bass / Treble
ramp for certain right hand techniques (Matthew Garrison)


Ds that you place your hand on the handle, one feels that c is a high-end bass
handle end, outstanding playability and fast (string little spaces)
the bass is light and comfortable


I 'm use it for any style or with a Roland amp Markbass
that is designed to accomplish the Gary Willis and bcp has played it speaks for itself
a beautiful, dark sound, versatile grace the effectiveness of prampli it is not at all frustrated the lack of a micro 2nd
the sound is rather dull and low-medium but with clear highs and it seems to me that the Elixir strings are not suitable, otherwise its feutrbr />

We regularly found on eBay US reasonable prices
perfect bass, there s nothing to change
it is to rival the old Jazzbass that are more axes medium, the dreaded U-bass Leduc, F bass etc ...
c is a matter of taste

Ibanez GWB1
Made in Japan
Bridge Ibanez standard, nothing special
Channel ultrathin, flat and fast
24 "frets"
1 micro bartolini custom in the bridge position
Bartolini preamp: 1 volume with active / passive switch, eq 2 band


The handle is an example of comfort.
It is light, well balanced access to acute carefree.
The sound is very good.
The ramp is undeniable support for all playing techniques with three or four fingers, but also provides comfort for the standard game.


The sound is excellent.
Typed "Pasto like".
Do not expect to have a round with this bass.
Modern and precise but versatile.
We might as well play jazz fusion, funk, she knows everything.
I play with strings and nickel DR "mwate" to perfection!
Electro Bartolini is very effective.


Used for 1 month.
Before that, I have not tried a lot of fretless: A Dave Pushic a Noguera and Jazz Bass.
Despite the mojo of the Jazz Bass, Ibanez has a much better gameplay, excellent sound.
I think it is too expensive new. The price is more reasonable secondhand!
It really is a low flying high and I do not regret this investment.
I recommend to anyone who wants a great fretless bass.
