Ibanez George Benson GB-10 1978


Product Code: GE841

$ 2,200.00 $ 1,978.00

This 1978 Ibanez GB-10 is one of the first guitars made in the model's 40 year history. This is not a showroom instrument, but truly a guitar with a great sound and a ton of vibe. 

Ibanez's first artist model, the GB-10 was designed to meet Benson's need for an archtop that performed at higher volumes. The smaller body, 2 1/2" depth, and thick laminate top all help deliver a great sound without feedback. 

This guitar has the woody punch, pop, and clarity that can sound quintessentially Benson. But roll off the tone and it has a convincing Wes Montgomery-style sound. It also can produce a great rockabilly tone!
