    Perfect guitar

    Long time Gibson player here but this guitar have truly made an impact on me way more then any other electric guitar before. The playabality is superb, the setup, as it arrived from sweetwater just perfect and the overall unique character is beautiful. It retains enough acoustic features but it can taken to another level volume wise way more then any other archtop I have played. There is some gypsy jazz character in the sound which I really like and makes it very versatile. Thank you Arend from Sweetwater for great advice and perfect transactions.

    There is none better...

    I owned one of these years ago, i also had an es 175 and a Howard Roberts custom, both fine guitars by any standard , but the GB10 it is something special the small size gives it a versatility of tone you can do more than jazz with it ..this is as close to a D'aquisto as your going to get . it has the floating pickups and great hardware appointments including tailpiece tension control it has the ease of playability that ibanez is known for ..if you want to play jazz get one of these ...you will fall in love...you will reach for this guitar again and again...

    This is my third archtop. I have an Epi Joe Pass and a Gibson L5, and this one is my favorite. The body size is remarkably comfortable, the tonal range is quite wide. Sounds good through a tube amp with a touch of reverb for the old school stuff and it does nicely with an effects rack. The neck is as fast as the L5. The Ibanez doesn't have the sustain that the L5 has, but few archtops guitars do, and it costs a fifth of the L5 I do wish the plating on the hardware was better quality, I can see it will start to pit and discolor in a few years.

    Ibanez George Benson Guitar

    I've had my original issue Benson for more than 20 years and it's my go-to electric guitar for jazz. I also have a 1950 Gibson L-5C so the Benson has competition in my rack.

    My second choice for that purchase was a Gibson 335, but when I played the Benson it was no competition.
    The playability is just so easy with a neck that's just thin enough. The tone is amazing and those floating pickups and carved spruce top work together like no other small-boby F-Hole guitar. It's loud enough to practice with even when not pluged in.

    Along with a few other Ibanez arch-tops (including the now discontinued Joe Pass mode) these are amoung the finest guitars regardless of name or price.

    You can hear me playing it on my original FunkyJ track on my Air Play CD which released this year at: www.thejazzwhistler.com
