Ibanez GB40THII
-AA George Benson Signature 40th Anniversary Overview by GAK:

Ibanez first introduced the legendary jazz George Benson Signature Guitar in 1977. Since then, Benson’s signature models have been loved by many and considered the pinnacle of performance for several years. Now, Ibanez proudly celebrates the 40th anniversary of this signature guitar with the release of a new model, GB40THII. The new model features a solid spruce top, whose maturity and performance are highly approved by Benson himself. Containing a fine-sized body and a slim, smooth 3-piece maple neck, it creates an exceptionally open, warm sound while providing an amazing response and loudness with smooth sustain. GB special pickups are installed and float off the body, eliminating feedback and enabling a superbly warm jazz sound. The specially designed 40th anniversary inlay on the headstock, fretboard, and bridge/tailpiece also grace the anniversary of his long-running signature guitar legacy.


George Benson and Ibanez began a creative journey 40 years ago. It started with the goal of building a guitar suited to please a master jazz musician. Along the way, a legendary instrument was created for guitarists of every genre, all over the world. Now, Ibanez proudly celebrates with the release of two magnificent 40th Anniversary models.

George Benson, an acknowledged master jazz guitarist and hit-making vocalist, needed an instrument that could both handle the rigours of the road and was compact enough to be able to be stashed in the overhead storage compartment of an airplane. Ibanez worked intensively with George to build a guitar that not only could travel, but could transcend.

The Limited Edition GB40THll is a more affordable, but a no less sumptuous instrument. It features a 3-piece maple GB set-in neck, a solid spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, GB Special pickups and an ebony bridge with a 40th Anniversary special inlay as well as a GB10 tailpiece with a 40th Anniversary specially-designed wood cover.
