The GB10SE which is inspired by the popularity of George Benson’s GB10 signature model 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, hollow body 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.
