Comments about Ibanez LGB30 George Benson Signature Hollowbody Electric Guitar:
For me, this is the best Ibanez jazz box that I've found, I looked at several artcore/artstar guitars from Ibanez before deciding to take this one. The quality of the instrument is really good and the setup straight out of the box was good. I've had a Gibson Les Paul studio and a "pimped up" Epiphone es-335 dot for my blues and rock sessions through the years, but few years ago I turned my attention to jazz and I never got the right sound with those mentioned. When I got the LGB30 I honestly didn´t need to do a thing, it was already there, the sound coming from this instrument is exceptional for jazz. If you are a student looking for a quality jazz guitar for a reasonable price, I totally recommend this one. Worth every penny.
