The Ibanez GB10 Hollowbody is simply one of the smoothest guitars I have ever laid my hands on. The tone is 100 percent Benson when played through a decent amp. A lot of manufacturers should take note on this guitar because every time you pick it up you can feel that you are playing a top quality instrument, and you didn't have to pay $10,000 to get it. Thank you Ibanez, Thank you Mr. Benson for such an incredible guitar!!!!

I'm quite disappointed with the microphonic mini pickups. When I play I pick mostly over the front pickup. Even the frets at the top are microphonic because the pickup is attached to the neck by a bracket. Tone is very good and if you learn to play between the pickups, no "pick click". I thought about ordering another GB model, but I hear the others are the same. I've lowered the pickup by removing screws and seems to be better now, but tone is a little less. Other than that little irritation, it's a great guitar.
Nice features and like the workmanship other than the pickups. Really nice pots, very smooth. The neck inlay is beautiful, tuners very nice, binding and finish are great. This is one beautiful guitar.
One of the highest quality guitars I've ever owned (have ten guitars) except for the pickups.
Musicians Friend pretty much can't be beat for price, I tried. Free shipping and a huge discount? How do they do it?

Fret Board smoth as butter spread on bread

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I am an owner of the anniversary Gb12 the same as the GB10 just a few amenaties added. Once you pick up this instrument you will never want another jazz guitar. The feel, the sound quality is sweet. Make sure you have a quality amp. For a toy amp for this guitar is no Justice. Let's put it this way even your girl friend if she never played guitar and felt this fret board would want you to have one and one for her.

GB10-A Solid Performer

By Bertski

from Cape Cod, MA

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I bought my GB10 mail order in 1984 when I lived out of the country. It was recommended by my guitar teacher who is STILL playing his, as well. He made the recommendation based on the consistent quality of the guitar. After 25 years it still plays like a dream and inspires me.

By Ivorg

from Sydney australia

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I actually have a blonde which I was lucky enough to get from George Benson himself!!I also have a GB100 which has a qualtiy of its own! Irecommend any 'SERIOUS' guitar player to invest in a GB10 before they stop making it !!You will have a life time of the most enjoyable playing!! I use flat wound gauge 14's on the 10 and flatwound 13's on the hundred! the tone is simply delicious!! Go get one today

The best - nothing more to say!

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

A superb instrument. I've owned one for over 8 years now. Expensive but worth it. Top quality workmanship and components. Absolutely precise. Sounds just fantastic. Try it with Thomastik GB flatwound strings.

Great Jazzbox for gigging

By WoodyTone

from New Fairfield, CT

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I bought this blonde GB10 new last July. After almost 30 years playing a vintage Gibson Johnny Smith, it has become my main playing axe. While the sound isn't quite the same 'Classic' sound as my JS, it still holds its own quite nicely with a unique jazz sound all its own. The action is easy , fast and extremely comfortable. Having been into the larger archtops for so long, I've been completely seduced by the smaller size of this guitar. It can be manhandled - all the features are well thought out, and the workmanship on these guitars is impeccable, in a day and age where we've come to expect something less. This guitar looks great, sounds great, and is easy to play. I've always loved George Benson's playing and I love this GB10.

Great Tone & Very Playable

By bjazzyjett

from Lexington, KY

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I've been playing jazz guitar for nearly 20 years and this guitar is extremely rugged despite its fragile exterior. Most importantly, it is delightful to play as the neck and action make chordal voicings easy (like Giant Steps) and again, it has a wonderfully warm tone. I've had two of GB-10s thus far and both have been of superior workmanship.

The sweetest guitar ever

By Swift

from Housatonic, MA

Comments about Ibanez GB10 George Benson Hollowbody Electric:

I bought a used GB about 15 years ago and I can't stand to play any other electric guitar. This guitar is the finest instrument I have ever played. Other guitars need a nice tube amp or whatever, this guitar has all the tone you need by itself. The Jazz Chorus amp is perfect for it because of it's flat response, it lets you hear the guitar. It has a very versatile sound and is easy to play. If god plays a guitar, this is it.
