Ibanez GB10 Prestige
Manufacturing quality of the highest level, comparable to Gibson, Angelico etc ... but for a lower cost.
"Crafted in Japan"

UTILIZATION

Incredible comfort: easy handle and can lower the action very low without any buzz.
Handle a little softer than that of the ES 175.
The fund reduced by 14.5 "allows ease very significant stake standing or sitting.

SOUNDS

Harmonic sounds very round and warm with these mini humbuckers, the ebony and spruce. Effectiveness formidable live studio home.
Flexible thanks to two microphones and knobs that allow to obtain a wide range. Guitar while playing mainstream jazz, blues, fusion, bebop, chord melody, funk

OVERALL OPINION

Price too high in France (purchasing advised Japan, Ishibashi or other mag on line)
Guitar worship intelligently designed by George Benson and Ibanez luthiers in
A must since the 70s that owners jealously guard
For lovers of Jazz, George Benson (but not only)

vgdb's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great sound, real personality"

Ibanez GB10 Prestige
Made in Japan
See specifications in previous opinions

UTILIZATION

I've never played a round more comfortable. I ADDITION mounted flat yarn is a pleasure to play despite a tie worthy of a folk.

The ergonomics of this guitar is a compendium of everything I love. Not electric guitarist, I appreciate the true credit union that gives volume to the beast, without being too bulky. Everything about this guitar exudes exceptional both in terms of comfort than that of the finish.

Access to the treble is not the best feature of this guitar, but it is largely one of Les Paul.



SOUNDS

THE sound. Very nice guitar for many more styles of music you could imagine: from rockabilly to jazz to ballad ...
To summarize the sound of the beautiful: the grain and personality:

+ On the micro channel, coupled with my Polytone Minibrute I am Ronny Jordan when I play. His mellow jazz and magic, very easy to control with the Knob bass / treble, brilliance in attack, it's fantastic! What a pity I do not know how to play ...
+ In middle position (both pickups in parallel), delivers a beautiful sound very convincing to almost play the folk and popular song.
+ Finally, with a great delay in the loop of the amp, I'm competing with Brian Setzer and requests on all the microphones, as the song. What a pity it has no tremolo!

- Attention to feedback, this is not a solid body (but it's obvious a priori!)

OVERALL OPINION

It will take three years I have, I had several electric solid body but this is the first case that I play. I tried a few others (Gretsch, Epiphone, godin), but none seemed both born.
The trim level is higher than my old Gibson Les Paul Standard that was a reference to my liking in this field.
It is much more versatile than previously thought, a priori, with a microphone Acute really usable.
And what a sound!

Ibanez GB10 Prestige
- Mine is a Japanese (a real one then), 1982 (an old since manufacturing began in late 1977)
- Body Maple / Spruce with binding
- Profile GB-Neck Maple / ebony binding with 20 frets, a slimtap reminiscent of the guild, billiards and speed despite the 12-54 dadario demirond that I rise.
- Diapason 628mm/24.75 "
- Radius 305mmR
- 2 mini humbucking pickups Ibanez Floating GB Special
- 2 volume / 2 tone / 3-position selector
- Ebony Easel
- Gold hardware

I put 9 for the table that is not massive, while the micro float would make it vibrate more, and for shade Defois sign benson where this guitar.

UTILIZATION

A beautiful violin, and a round of thunder, I is not found better (the irreducible sleeved lumberjack home gibson go your way). Access to acute seem easy although I rarely go beyond 15 (anyway I was told a 12 fret guitar is beyond it again lol). microcomputer serious it sounds alone, the sound on the treble is a little harder to find, I heard about Bruno Bongarçon mine reached him there! But not easy anyway (you probably are even more çaqu'il for the GB15).

SOUNDS

I was playing before a small fender deluxe 112 for home, it seemed not too bad I was already in love but now blues deluxe is simply amazing, we can say one thing is that this guitar has the caratère, certainly it's not a big archtop guitar kind L5 but it fits very well with the bop style jazz, I was often said not to replace a current 175 , that good ar cons it is only the opinion of the recent anti gibson I do not party, but it is on that saw the price .... The top is in the funky smooth (rough on the guitar at benson). It accepts the effects (not too much distortion on the other hand, limits a little over drive) but what domage alter the single grain of this guitar, I did it for commands in groups.

OVERALL OPINION

Mine is based on the 1982 Series No. I82 ... she is in perfect condition is the new croirrait I have in my pocesssion since 1995 I am a fan home fan, all those who arrived later in my collection have ended under the bed or on deposit, I love that's all it is the best guitar in the world (slight exaggeration lol), I would do this 1000 times choice, and if one day I really make money I rebuke another (blonde this time) I dreamed I wanted I had to 8000F at the time all my savings (I 18), it did not have a strong side and really worth it, everyone around me wanted me, she makes me a spoiled child, I can no longer buy the other guitar! !

Ibanez GB10 Prestige
I possde a rcent model 2008 (manufactured in Japan as qu'indiqu the inside of the body and the back of the neck) .It is upscale, with a finish exemplary. Repprocher absolutely nothing cost. Jazz archtop guitar with laminated table microphones mini floating humbuker, 3 parts maple neck, ebony button repres pearl / abalone sunburst finish.
A volume, a micro tonality. Floating pickups are perfectly fixs, mounts on a system with spring buffer performantet felt very soign.leur attachment is perfect and no gnre exotic wood like rosewood bridge vibration parasite.Le or bne (I hesitates) is adjustable in height and positioner for the accuracy of the instrument.

USE

The handle is round well calibrated. The handle is divine and is simply forgotten.
The access to the treble is excellent and the body of modest size does not GNE incursions after the 12me fret. When playing bop, rarely goes beyond the 15me.
The frets are jumbo mdium. Their exemplary finish provides a net game prcis smooth with perfect intonation. Their grading is so prcis, a low extrment rglage action is possible while maintaining a neat and clean game without this frieze.
Voil a manufacturing quality pledge and a high degree of finish.
A guitar that responds (in the spirit of jazz), whatever the fawn that we attack the strings, fingers or plectre.Je urges the 11/52 or 12/54 mesh dish according to your style.

SONORITS

This responds guitar all my expectations. The sound is wonderful, round, stung with whatever dynamically allowing also consider incursions into the modal jazz repertoire fusion.Les strengths: balance the bass spectrum / mdium / treble, attack of the notes that can pass all the nuances of the game, the sustain and keeping score. Dj one is undoubtedly in the upscale rserv demanding musicians .You go to play old and new standards. This sound will approach the sound Wes if you use a tube amp that DLivre round clear sounds and warm, it will be a little more acoustic amp with a kind Polytone or EAR.
This is the neck pickup (alone) I prfre.Il is very accurate and subtle .It allows chording with maximum clarity and dtach. The rglage of tonality (frquemment dlaiss a correction without darkening the sound. A palette that goes well feutr towards clatantes rating but still envelopes.
For a little more rhythmic appuys I use two microphones in intermediary position. The only bridge pickup does not really intRet, as is also the case in the majority of archtop jazz guitars. Another aspect very interesting: if you play sound levels levs (large room or grde scene) the GB10 is the instrument of the situation .Her qualities are well prsentes volume lev without the drawback unwanted feedback. This is an important point, because I've already seen the 175 padded crate or glass wool moleton to overcome this kind of problem

NOTICE GLOBAL

I ve tried many guitars before making that choice, in a price range of 1000 5000 euros. Gibson, Guild, Heritage, Daquisto, Hofner ... My initial project was the acquisition of 175 Gigson but its purchase price, both in radically new opportunity that I dcourag. The Ibanez GB10 is a good price-quality ratio, then it is as srieux investment a Gibson. Little or no dcote perspective.
What I like least ??? L, I'm looking, I do not find ... ah, so ... The fools who say that because it's Japanese it is less although the amricain gear ...
It's a choice I do it again without problem, eyes closed and ears open ... for losing the pleasure of hearing.

I put 9 for the table that is not massive, while the floating micro permettrais to vibrate more, as well as the shadow defois o benson sign this guitar.

USE

A very beautiful violin and a round of thunder, I is not found better (the irrductibles sleeves lumberjack home gibson go your way). The access to acute seem easy to me even though I rarely go to the del 15 (from a skyscraper Either way I was told it is 12 squares in del start again lol). on neck pickup alone it sounds, the sound of the treble is a little difficult to find, I heard Bruno Bongaron on mine Him he succeeded! But not simple anyway (you probably do not even aqu'il for longer exists on the GB15).

SONORITS

I played before on a small deluxe 112 in fender, it seemed not too bad I was already in love but now on blues deluxe is simply epoustouflant, we can say one thing is that this the skyscraper has caratre, Certe not a big archtop guitar genre L5 but is very well integrated into jazz bop style, I was much told not replace a current 175 good against a r a is the opinion of the recent anti gibson I do not party, but it is on considering the price .... The top is in the funky smooth ( fun for the guitar benson). It accepts the effects (not too by the distortion against limits a little over drive) but what a shame to altrer the unique grain of this guitar, I did it for commands into groups.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this guitar used a month ago and since then I immediately find with its quality (finely crafted jazz sounds, round enjoyable) and default (micro floating bridge fixs the wrong pickguard, you can not remove, Feed back, all is not stable and did some "tinkering" to a guitar over 2000 Euros ...
This guitar dates back to 2000 and is made in Korea (Korea, on the label in the box) I do not think the quality is the same as the first since 1980 made in Japan. I would like a (happy owner) of the original GB10 (Japan)
gives us his opinion. I note 7 / 10 for now, srement After a few more rglages.
