For a fitting tribute to this historic collaboration of an American jazz master with Japanese precision craftsmanship, Ibanez chose TEAM J CRAFT, a prestigious company in Kyoto with a four-hundred year history in the traditional Japanese textured silver leaf Garahaku art form to create and apply the finish for this extraordinary and very limited edition instrument.
The GB30TH electric guitar celebrates three decades of the contributions of George Benson and Ibanez to the evolution of the modern guitar. It also commemorates one of the earliest, longest and most significant artist endorsements in the musical instrument industry and how important those artist/instrument maker relationships have been in creating interest and enthusiasm in the public for music making.
