  • Made in China! Really?

    As reviewed by FLIP on 7/21/2014

    I received this guitar two weeks ago. Out of the box it looked great. I couldn't believe it was set up perfectly for me already. I may change the bridge to the wooden one but that's all. When I performed with Air Force bands, I played many different brands of guitar, including Gibson Super 400 and L5. I have small hands, so neck dimensions are important to me. I'm also very particular about the sound of the instrument. When I picked this axe up and played it through my amp, I fell in love with it. It's everything I've been looking for, a warm jazz sound with punch and an easy playing feel. This is a very high quality guitar for 1/8 the price of the Gibson Byrdland which it closely resembles. I'm 77 years old and excited again about playing.

  • Great Value

    As reviewed by randy chang on 12/31/2013

    I decided to purchase this guitar after seeing the video reviews on youtube as well as Mr Benson's promotion. I had been in the market for a new arch top with a decent price. I was looking into the DeAngelico ExLI but decided to go with the LGB30 because it had a fatter body 35/8th inches as compared to 3 inches for the EXL1 with a price of $1149. I received the LGB30 on 12/16 and took it out of the case and inspected it and then started to play it. I was immediately impress. It was in tune and strung with Diaddarios flat wounds 11's. It felt good and the feel of this guitar felt great. The neck felt good and easy to play and the set up was great. Totally impressive straight out of the case. It came with the metal bridge but I changed it to the wooden one which came with the guitar. I have other arch tops, all with wooden bridges. It gives more of the acoustic resonance I prefer. I have been a professional for over 40 years and yes I do have a great collection of other guitars. What impresses me about this guitar is the over all quality. This guitar is made in China(yes China) and it is worth the price. Thank you George Benson for setting a standard for an affordable and quality guitar such as this LGB30. You might be wondering why I didn't give a 5 star. For me personally a 5 star represents a perfect guitar and there is no perfect guitar no matter what year what price. The only perfect one is the one brings joy to you when you play it. So in conclusion this is a very good instrument for the price.

  • Great looks, sound, and design

    As reviewed by kevin on 4/12/2015

    I agonized over this purchase for months. I don't like to buy a guitar without trying it. Took a chance and it paid off. This guitar has the best feel and tone of any guitar in it's price range. It blows Eastman and D'Angelico away. It is am extremely well made guitar. The neck is incredible. Slightly thinner than the average Ibanez box. The guitar has punch and clarity. It has a "modern" sound and rejects feedback well. The notes have detail. It does not sound like the average AK Ibanez. If you are looking for a good sounding, good looking, and good playing guitar, look no further. George has done the work for us.
