About This Listing

Ibanez George Benson Signature GB10EM - Antique Amber

Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Spruce Top, Linden Back and Sides, Nyatoh Neck, Walnut Fingerboard, and 2 Mini Humbuckers - Antique Amber   George Benson is the definitive modern jazz guitarist, and the Ibanez GB10EM is his weapon of choice. This classic jazz box boasts a linden body, chosen for its combination of growling warmth and defined attack. A spruce top ensures maximum resonance and resistance to feedback. Plug the GB10EM into your favorite amp, and you’ll enjoy a clean response and clear articulation that are tailor-made for fast melodies and complex chord progressions, courtesy of a set of floating Magic Touch-Mini humbuckers. This hollowbody electric feels great, too, thanks to its easy-playing walnut-capped nyatoh neck. A walnut bridge and VT14 tailpiece ensure rock-solid stability, while a wood tailpiece cover maintains the guitar’s aesthetics. If you want to achieve George Benson’s bluesy, soulful grit (no small feat there), the GB10EM is a great place to start. Select tonewoods for sweet, sustained notes

The GB10EM is a looker, for sure. But it's not just made for the showcase; this performer has pipes, thanks to specially chosen tonewoods used in its construction. It features a spruce top that resonates beautifully but also helps reduce feedback, so your music comes through with minimal distortion. Beyond that, the GB10EM’s linden back and sides exude a warm growl with truckloads of definition, and that walnut bridge isn't just attractive; it improves sustain so every note sings out at full strength with endurance in spades.

Magic Touch-Mini humbucking pickups serve up expressive tone

The Ibanez George Benson Signature GB10EM boasts a set of Magic Touch-Mini humbuckers. These pickups are mounted to the guitar’s pickguard, enabling them to float above its top. This ensures that they don’t dampen the guitar’s natural body vibration, resulting in a rich, larger-than-life acoustic tone. The pickups themselves serve up a balance of classic tones. They’re chock-full of clean response and clear articulation, which permits you to perform fast melodies and complex chord progressions with razor-sharp precision.

GB neck yields smooth feel and comfortable action

The neck of any guitar determines how well it plays, which is why Ibanez selected the GB neck — George Benson’s choice shape for smooth and comfortable action — for the GB10EM. Not only will your hand love the comfortable carve of this nyatoh neck, but your fingers will appreciate the beautifully bound walnut fingerboard.
