The Ibanez GB10SE-BS George Benson Signature Electric Guitar in Brown Sunburst offers an affordable rendition of the legendary guitarist's signature model. Playing host to a range of premium features such as: select tonewoods, peerless construction, GB Special pickups, and specially designed hardware, the GB10SE is a model that is sure to become a favourite amongst all guitarists, not just the Jazz and Soul purists.
Sleek Hollowbody Design
As you'd expect, Ibanez has crafted the GB10SE to a classic hollowbody design with a single-cutaway that offers greater access to the upper frets. The warm low-end tones produced by the hollowbody are matched with a richness across the midrange through to the upper register, with clarity that rings out sweetly thanks to the select maple back and sides. The spruce top acts as the perfect soundboard thanks to its highly resonant character, whilst the f-holes allow the rich timbre to sing out acoustically. The top has been completed in a beautiful brown sunburst finish.
Unique GB Profile Maple Neck
Fitted to the body is a set-in three-piece maple neck, guaranteeing that a lengthy sustain is preserved whilst guaranteeing a sturdy and responsive playing feel. Shaped to the unique GB profile, the neck plays like a dream, offering a substantial feel in the hand without feeling cumbersome. As noted, the set-in design ensures that sustain is maintained dutifully, but also ensures a softer heel, which allows the body to rest snugly against you during performances.
Married to the neck is a bound ebony fingerboard, which ensures smooth transitions along the entire length of the neck. Each one of the medium-sized 22-frets is readily accessible, thanks to the smooth single-cutaway body profile, with acrylic and abalone block position inlays on hand to guide your way in style.
Elegant, Gig-Ready Hardware
The body is equipped with an ebony bridge and accompanying GB10 tailpiece, a partnership that works tirelessly to create a seamless connection between the strings and body, establishing a solid foundation for optimised intonation and sustain. At the top of the neck you'll find the specially-designed half bone/half brass nut, which promotes stable string tension throughout each and every performance.
GB Special Humbuckers
The GB10SE is home to a pair of GB Special humbuckers, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. The beauty of this pairing lies in their unique construction, with the pickups floating off the body to eliminate feedback – allowing you to crank up the output without fear of your signal becoming overwhelmed. The pickups allow you to tap into the universe explored by Benson himself, offering tones that are infused with a smokey warmth and dripping with attitude.
Control over each pickup comes in the form of individual volume and tone pots, with Sure Grip III knobs providing precise control, and guaranteed non-slip functionality.
The Ibanez GB10SE-BS George Benson Signature Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Brown Sunburst is an affordable model that punches well above its weight, and even comes with its own hardshell case to keep it safe at home or on the move.
