One of Ibanez's longest running signature guitars, the Japanese-made George Benson Signature Model continues to be popular with jazz players who aren't afraid to add some volume to the mix (Kurt Rosenwinkel fans, read on...). Features include an arched spruce top, maple back and sides, 24 3/4" scale, 1 11/16" nut width, and a pair of floating humbuckers.
Condition: Very good. This guitar has had a refret with jumbo frets which show little, if any, wear. As a result, the playability and setup are excellent. The spruce top has several dings and a few finish cracks (none appear to be in the wood itself) and there is light worming on the back. The sides also sport a few dings and shallow scratches. The neck feels smooth and all bindings are intact and in good shape. The strap buttons are replacements. This was a player but was well cared for - the wear is consistent with what you'd expect to see on a guitar of this age / level of use.
Simply a killer sounding, playing, and looking archtop for players who want to add a modern classic to their arsenal! Priced with non-original hardshell case.
