Warm, Jazzy Hollowbody Tone -- George Benson Style

The Ibanez LGB30 George Benson electric guitar brings George Benson's famous hollowbody tone to your fingertips. Part of Ibanez's Artstar series, this beauty is all about looks and tone. It 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 ebony fingerboard with tasteful pearl and abalone block fingerboard inlays, and independent volume and tone controls for each pickup.

Fully Hollow Spruce and Maple Body

Your tone will sound vibrant and bright, thanks to this guitar's maple and spruce body. 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.

Maple and Mahogany Set-In Neck

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.

Warm and Jazzy Super 58 Custom Humbuckers

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.

Ibanez LGB30 George Benson

For over 30 years the relationship between George Benson and Ibanez has resulted in some truly elite hollow body guitars. Now, as the first Signature Model of the new Ibanez Artstar Series, a more affordable version of the LGB300 has arrived, with the LGB30. The Artstar Series consists of high-quality instruments for the working professional musician and the Benson model serves as an auspicious debut. The LGB30 includes a spruce top with Flamed Maple back and sides, 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set neck, Ebony fingerboard, Bone nut, LGB300 custom tailpiece and gold hardware. Highlight features that really let the LGB30 shine are two Ibanez Super 58 Custom pickups, the Artstar Fret Edge Treatment (for a fast, smooth feel). LGB30 includes hardshell case.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ibanez LGB30"
Overall: Awesome Guitar! I took this guitar out of the box, tuned it and played amazing leads and rythems! I have always been a firm believer in having the intonations and necks setup on any guitar I buy, even the used ones, but I don't want to change a thing on this guitar! Looks stunning and plays even better. The sound and action of this guitar makes me appear to be a better player than I really am!
Style of Music: Cowboy music, Country and classic rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
