Celebrating 40 years of collaboration between Ibanez and legendary jazz guitarist George Benson, Ibanez is proud to introduce the GB40THII.

Dressed in an Antique Amber finish, this stunning GB40THII features a single cutaway hollow body design, and is crafted using beautiful flamed maple back & sides with a solid spruce top for a clear, resonant sound. The 3-piece set maple neck carries a bound ebony fingerboard that's undergone Ibanez's exclusive Artstar fret edge treatment for superb playability and comfort. The fingerboard, the ebony bridge, and the special GB10 40th Anniversary tailpiece with special wood cover are all adorned with elegant GB40THII inlays.

The GB40THII comes fitted with a pair of GB special pickups, which float off the body to combat feedback while allowing the guitar to serve up beautiful, warm jazz tones. The electronics include a 3-way pickup selector as well as independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. Sure Grip III control knobs are non-slip knobs that offer precise control as well as smooth and traditional looks. Classy gold hardware and a specially-designed half bone/half brass nut. Includes hardshell case.

Wow!!!! great bank for the buck!!!!


i have purchased two Ibanez George Benson models and this one takes the prize. the neck is as super smooth and comfortable as a neck can be. the rolled neck and the fret edge treatment make if feel as if you have played this guitar for years. the solid spruce top paired with the maple back and sides give this guitar a wonderful acoustic voice. The George Benson Mini Humbuckers are articulate and full. Dang how'd they give you all of this at the price point they are at? please get one...you won't be disappointed. Roy Long Island, NY
