Finally, it’s fitted with an SFR-GWB bridge pickup and an EQB-GWII 2-band EQ.

    I always wanted one of the fretless models but I hate the tuners on them.

  2. This is not the first fretted Gary Willis signature bass.
    They made the GWB2 a few years ago which was a fretted version of the GWB1.
