Ibanez GB GB40THII-JBB George Benson Signature Series, Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Jet Blueburst

World-renowned Jazz, Soul, and R&B musician and performer George Benson has long been gracing the world's music stages and studios, with his guitar of choice almost always being his trusty Ibanez.

Benson's earliest Ibanez signature guitar was the sublime GB100BS BS in the early 1990s, and although that particular model has since been discontinued, it's legacy lives on in the awesome Ibanez GB GB40THII, a George Benson Signature Series Semi-hollow Electric Guitar, which is now available here at PMT in a gorgeous Jet Blueburst finish.

Semi-Hollow Body, Sleek and Thin Neck, GB Special Humbucker Pickups

The excellent Ibanez GB GB40THII features a whole host of premium-grade appointments, including: an Ebony fretboard w/Artstar Fret Edge Treatment; GB Special "floating" Pickups; Half-Bone/Half-Brass nut; Sure Grip III control knobs; customised fret inlays; flatwound strings and more! Not only that, but despite the guitar's obvious connotations as being an instrument for Jazz music, the slim neck and excellent electronics make it as versatile as you could want it to be, suiting an array of style from Blues, Funk, Pop and even rock music.

Artstar Fret Edge Treatment

The frets on the Ibanez GB40THII have been specially treated to provide a tight response and a smooth playing experience. Add to that the ebony fretboard and gorgeous custom fret inlays, and you have yourself a guitar that not only sounds great but looks great too.

Specially Designed Pickups

The specially designed GB Special pickups actually "float" a little above the guitar's body, ensuring the elimination of that unwanted feedback which can sometimes be a problem with other semi-hollow guitars, especially at louder volumes. This also results in that superbly warm jazz sound that Benson is best known for.

Premium Control Knobs

The Sure Grip III Control Knobs on the Ibanez GB40THII have been designed for precise control, and posess a nonslip functionality. Not only that, but they really look the part, matching the rest of the guitar perfectly.
