34% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

Lending his singular style to a special Ibanez hollowbody electric guitar, the George Benson Signature GB10SE offers a new take on the jazzer's custom guitar. This spruce-topped jazz box tones down the brightness without sacrificing tonal complexity, making it an exceptional alternative to the more common all-maple models. At the same time, the George Benson Signature GB10SE comes equipped with the appointments Music Experience guitarists love about the original, including the sparkle of GB Special humbuckers and Benson's unique half-bone/half-brass nut. To complete the picture, Ibanez also gave the George Benson Signature GB10SE a bound ebony fretboard with Artstar fret edge treatment that feels like an old friend from day one.

Ibanez: a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the Ibanez Salvador name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effects pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
