Ibanez LGB30 George Benson, Natural
This hollowbody is a product of the collaboration between Ibanez and the legendary George Benson. Part of Ibanez's Artstar series, this stunning guitar sports attractive gold hardware on a striking, bright-sounding Spruce and Maple body with a classy single cutaway, a pair of warm and clear Super '58 Custom humbuckers, a three-piece mahogany/maple set-in neck, a smooth bound genuine Ebony fingerboard with tasteful pearl and abalone block fingerboard inlays, and independent volume and tone controls for each pickup.
Spruce is a great tonewood for guitar body tops due to its visual aesthetic and crisp projection. Maple will bring in some snap and rounded brightness to keep your signal nice and vivid, while a single cutaway gives your fingers easy access to those higher frets. Bringing in a little body and depth is your Ibanez LGB30's three-piece maple/mahogany neck. Mahogany will push the lows and mids nicely with a helpful dosage of sustain as well. Set-in neck joints tend to have a smoother transfer of sound, greater overall resonance, and more warmth than bolt-on necks. 22 frets are housed in a super-smooth bound Ebony fingerboard with pearl and abalone block inlays. The pair of Super 58 Custom humbuckers on your Ibanez LGB30 George Benson electric guitar are the perfect companions for forging a warm, jazzy tone for your amplifier to project. These humbuckers feature Alnico magnets to capture the resonance of this axe's spruce and maple body. Each pickup has its own volume and tone control for you to shape your output.

Immaculate guitar for the price band. The neck is brilliant and is a really comfortable play. Can't really find a fault worth reporting.
Lovely guitar. Faultless construction. Lot louder acoustically than I expected and just the tone you would expect when amplified.
