Re: I didn't know George Benson did discount, too!
Very nice guitar ^^^^. All of the Artstars and a majority of the Artcores really float my boat. I like all the signature lines, all three of them a little bit better than standard lines, but I don't know if $3,000 dollar (street) price tags are my thing for Benson and Metheny. I could easily get a nice Gibson jazz guitar even though I still think Bensons are a cut above.
The neck on a MIJ Benson is really like a hand built luthier neck, aka D'Angelico, and that puts it in its own category. But most good jazz guitar players sound just as good on an Artcore, or any sub-$1000 dollar guitar as they do on a Benson.
