Here we present the rarely seen , highly sought after TKF finish on an original made in Japan GWB1.
What does TKF stand for, I wish I could tell you? The natural no tint model is designated as NTF – Natural (?) T..F… ?
A LITTLE HELP HERE !! Gil Champagne to the rescue – TKF = Trans Black Flat NTF = Natural Trans Flat. Thanks, Gil !
Besides being a real looker, this bass plays so easy and soothes the ears and sometimes brings genuine tears to my eyes.
- Ash body and ramp
- Maple 34″ scale neck, 3 piece
- Ebony lined fretboard
- Bartolin1 2 band preamp
- 7lbs, 6 oz – balsa wood?
- gig bag
But seriously, this is a very fine example of a rare real deal TKF Gary Willis.
Can you believe that the modern day made in Japan version of this bass lists for over $5K ?
The only difference I see is that the new one has a screw on ramp and an
Ebanol, not Ebony wood, fretboard.
