The Ibanez GWB1005 Gary Willis Signature bass was introduced in 2009, replacing the GWB105 signature model.  The GWB1005 is hand crafted from start to finish in Japan. There are a few changes from the previous GWB105 model: it has a black-faced headstock which no longer bears a Gary Willis signature. Now the signature is on the back electronics cover (each one is hand signed by Willis). The fretless fingerboard is now high gloss finished rosewood (instead of the GWB105's ebonol). The detachable finger ramp, designed by Gary Willis, is still there. This feature encourages players to not "dig in too deep" and allows a more consistent attack with quick recovery time.
