George Benson is something of a legend, with 10 Grammy Awards to his name and a career spanning over 60 years, he certainly knows how to pen a classic. A long time player of Ibanez guitars, the George Benson line of signature models has become something of a cult favourite among players, and it’s easy to see why with the GB10SE-BS.
With a Solid Spruce top on a Maple back and sides, you not only get stunning aesthetics but a beautiful natural tone too, rich and even, it delivers the smooth soul and jazz vibes that George Benson is so well known for. It's super dynamic and has great response.
The Benson 3 piece Maple set neck features a bound Ebony fingerboard, adorned with acrylic and abalone block inlays it has a real premium feel. With 22 medium frets, a 24.7" scale and Ibanez Artstar fret edge treatment, it plays like a dream. Strung with .011-.050 flatwound strings you get that real smooth, warm feel.
Loaded with George Benson Special Alnico pickups you get a sweet vintage jazz tone, with super clarity and note definition it is the sound that has inspired some of his greatest hits. The GB10 tailpiece looks great and complements the design of this guitar perfectly.
The Ibanez George Benson GB10SE-BS is a great example of an artist and a manufacturer sharing a vision and delivering it, this guitar is a winner!
