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.
