Overview

Inspired by the popularity of George Benson’s GB10 signature model, the GB10SE exemplifies Ibanez expertise in creating high-quality, affordable signature instruments capable of meeting the artists exacting demands. As part of the highly regarded Artstar Series, GB10SE retains many of the same features and appointments of its posh predecessor, at a price accessible for the working musician.

The GB10SE’s comfortably sized, narrower, hollowbody features a spruce top with maple back and sides, augmented with a strong, smooth GB 3-piece maple set-in neck. It also features an ebony bridge and the same eye-catching GB10 tailpiece as its more expensive sibling. A special design half-bone/half-brass nut creates a warm natural tone while enhancing sustain.

The Ibanez Sure Grip III control knobs insure precise, no-slip control over volume and tone. Designed for smooth sound and moderate output, two GB Special mini-humbuckers are mounted to the pickguard, suspending them above the guitar’s Spruce top. This prevents feedback at higher volume while retaining a warm, creamy tone.

Spanning over three decades, George Benson and Ibanez have one of the most enduring relationships ever between a guitar maker and guitar legend. The GB10SE includes a hardshell case.

Comments about Ibanez GB Series GB10SE George Benson Signature Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

I bought the LGB 30 when it was released.. Totally blown away by every aspect of the instrument. I couldn't get solid info on the GB10SE guitar. Went to Atlanta to return a very expensive Les Paul, and they had the SE. I am a Guitar Tech by trade. After checking it out for 15 minutes I knew the guitar (despite some issues ) was good. The set up was poor. High action and too much relief. The Bridge pickup was out of alignment. These things were easily remedied, but they are obstacles. I have dealt with several Japanese GB10's, and they were perfect out of the box. This guitar required some work. But the end result was worth it. The neck is straight, the tone is great, and I only see it getting better!

    Right out of the box, I tuned it up and began playing on my Fender amp, clean with a little reverb, and wow! Plays like butter, pups are amazing, feel is just right, body is perfect size, the neck is about action, and the tone is wonderful. You will be very happy to buy this guitar. Absolutely!
