Ibanez GB40THII George Benson 40th Anniversary Hollowbody Guitar - Antique Amber

    Get A 3-Piece Maple GB Set-In Neck, A Solid Spruce Top, Flamed Maple Back And Sides - The Ibanez GB40THII George Benson 40th Anniversary Hollowbody Guitar 

    The Limited Edition GB40THll is a more affordable, but a no less sumptuous instrument. It features a 3-piece maple GB set-in neck, a solid spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, GB Special pickups and an ebony bridge with a 40th Anniversary special inlay as well as a GB10 tailpiece with a 40th Anniversary specially-designed wood cover.


    Born from a need for an excellent jazz guitar that could stand up to touring and gigging every night, the GB10 became a success almost immediately after its initial release in 1977. George Benson told Ibanez that he didn't want gimmicks, he wanted a workhorse guitar that sounded amazing. Ibanez delivered.

    IN THE LATE ‘70'S...

    George Benson, an acknowledged master jazz guitarist and hit-making vocalist, needed an instrument that could both handle the rigors of the road and was compact enough to be able to be stashed in the overhead storage compartment of an airplane. Ibanez worked intensively with George to build a guitar that not only could travel, but could transcend.


    In celebration of the GB10's long history, Ibanez is extremely pleased to introduce two new George Benson models, thus adding another exciting chapter to the ever evolving relationship between George and Ibanez. The GB40TH and GB40THII boast an exceptionally open, warm sound while providing an amazing response with smooth sustain.
