After over 40 years of collaboration, Ibanez and George Benson are pleased to present the GB10EM, the most accessible model of the entire GB line. The Ibanez GB10EM George Benson Antique Amber is the signature model of jazz and fusion icon George Benson. For George's signature sound, the GB10EM's body is composed of a solid spruce top with basswood back and sides, adding warm, vocal notes to the character of the sound. From a playing technique point of view, the Nyatoh neck with Benson's custom GB profile offers ideal conditions for complex chord work on the 22-fret walnut fingerboard. Connecting them to an amplifier, the two Magic Touch mini humbuckers with their narrow magnetic field produce crisp, articulate sounds in the bridge and warm sounds in the neck. Last but not least, the Ibanez GB10EM George Benson Antique Amber comes with some custom features such as a VT14 tailpiece with GB10EM wood cover, decorated walnut bridge and binding around the fingerboard.
