Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1986

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1986

The Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS is still in production as are other versions of the model, and they are as practical as when introduced. This model features two ‘floating’ mini-humbucking pickups, one attached to the fingerboard tag and the other to the pickguard. Neither contacts the top though the pickguard has a small support post. In the 1980s, the great Jazz guitarist George Benson entered into a collaboration with Ibanez to produce a series of signature archtop electric guitars, including the GB10 and its fancier sisters.

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS Sunburst Thinline Archtop Guitar, 1983

In the 1980s, the great Jazz guitarist George Benson entered into a collaboration with Ibanez to produce a series of signature archtop electric guitars, including the Ibanez George Benson GB10 BS and its fancier sisters. These guitars were immediately popular with other jazz players, because the design addresses real needs. The body is comfortably compact, and while its hollow, F-hole body design provides real archtop resonance, responsiveness and ‘thump’, the solid spruce top is carved to dramatically reduce feedback at performance volumes.
