 SOLD  1979 Ibanez GB-10
A must item for any jazz player
A graceful vintage of Ibanez GB10 is waiting for her new owner, a jazz player preferred. The ideal mix of spruce top + maple body + ebony fretboard adds luxury to the pearl and abalone inlay, which is laid nicely over the fretboard. The supplementary nut in addition to ivoroid one between the 1st fret and headstock sets it apart from the other prominent hollow body guitars. A glimpse at the string tuners, specially-designed with half bone/half brass nut, also gives an idea of masterpiece craftsmanship.

Floating pickups is another astonishing feature. Co-designed by George Benson for hollow bodies at higher volumes, floating bridge pickups eliminate feedback and play warm, well rounded output. You may easily lift up/down by single screwing from the top of the pick guard. This also gets rid of the pickup rings, making the pickups stand out and the gold hardware shinier.

Detailed photos have been taken to prove her good maintenance. Serial number indicates she was born in 1979. 2 x chips at the back of neck, lacquer wear of rear body, and 4 vertical thin lines of lacquer crack on the front body are the areas you would note. Neck curvature, action, intonation are all good. This guitar is shipped worldwide with a heavy duty original case.
