Product Description

The Ibanez LGB30 George Benson Hollow Body Guitar is an exciting instrument designed in collaboration with the one and only George Benson and Ibanez! As the first Signature Model of the Ibanez Artstar Series, the LGB30 is a more affordable version of the LGB300. With a spruce top with Flamed Maple back and sides, and 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set neck the Ibanez LGB30 hollowbody is both gorgeous and incredibly toneful.

Two Ibanez Super 58 Custom pickups really let the LGB30 George Benson signature guitar shine. The Artstar Fret Edge Treatment (for a fast, smooth feel), Ebony fingerboard, Bone nut, LGB300 custom tailpiece and gold hardware round out the features on this incredible instrument from Ibanez.

Gorgeous Guitar, Great Sound, Perfect Setup
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I received one of LGB30 (Nat) models a couple of weeks ago as a ‘blemish’ product — on inspection, I have only noticed minor color inconsistencies on the back of the guitar body - and only when inspected under intense light. This is a remarkably beautiful guitar, with Ibanez having paid attention to little details from the inlaid saddle to perfectly set and finished frets and smooth binding. It came with a set of flat wound strings — which I had never played before, but may now be a convert to. The setup on this guitar was perfectly low with no fret buzz anywhere as you scale the guitar’s neck. I’ve owned this guitar now for 2 1/2 weeks, and look forward to picking it up every day.

Some drawbacks on arrival as I had to dismantle several point on the guitar as directed.
What is your opinion of this product?
Plays great, sounds great, looks great. Fingering is very comfortable and resonance is high. Just wish it came "ready to play" with all plastic off and adjustments made.

"I love this thing"
What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased this guitar about a year ago and love everything about it. It has great action and feels really smooth when playing. The tone sounds great. I have played it through a Fender Twin Reverb and it sounds really good. I plan on eventually purchasing a Vox AC15. I recently had it setup and swapped the bridge for the wood bridge that it comes with and put on Thomastik-Infeld Vienna JS110 Flats and so far so good! The only complaint that I have is that after only having it a year I already need a little bit of fretwork done around the 10th to 12th fret. However I do play it at gigs and practice daily at a minimum of 2 hours a day sometimes upwards of 4 and live in upstate New York. So this could be just normal wear and tear. Overall though it is a really great guitar and I plan on keeping this as my main electric for the rest of my life. Once again, thanks to American Musical for the great customer service and awesome payment plans!

Not As Great As I Hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
When I received my new LGB-30, I was very excited but quickly became disappointed. I realize it is the "entry level" model to the George Benson line, but I expected a little more for a $1000. I was very hesitant about purchasing a guitar made in China because I have not heard favorable things, but I did succumb to the Ibanez reputation.
Overall quality seems to be decent. I have only owned the guitar for a week, so I really cannot comment at this time.
Once the proper adjustments were made, the guitar plays beautifully.
The most impressive thing about this guitar, is the finish. Looks to be very high quality.
I think the value of this guitar is fair, not great. The ebony fretboard and bone nut are things you do not often see on guitars at this price point.
The action out of the box was not to my liking. After playing it for a few minutes, I noticed considerable fret buzz at the 7th fret and it fretted out at the 15th fret. Further investigation led me to find that 3 frets were not seated properly and were loose. As with any production guitar, I expected to do a set up, maybe crown the frets. On this particular guitar, I spent an additional $200 to re-seat all the frets before any crowning could be done. Also, the slope at neck joint needed correcting. I believe the strings that come on the guitar are D'Addario 10's Flat wound. After $200 of corrections and a set of Thomastik-Infeld 12's, the guitar is playing beautifully.
