Notes: Introduced in 1978, the Ibanez George Benson GB-10 model was the first artist model in the company's history, and remains the longest running as well. Designed to the detailed specifications of Benson himself, the GB-10 was a breakthrough design for the modern player. The slimmer profile hugs the body closer than traditional big boxes, and the thicker laminated top significantly increased feedback resistance for performance at increased volume levels.
