Ebony fretboard

Ebony produces a tight low and mid range with an iconic attack on the high end. It also features a quick response and rich sustain.

GB Special Pickups

GB special pickups are installed and float off the body, eliminating feedback and enabling a superbly warm jazz sound.

Half-Bone/Half Brass Nut

The splendid George Benson Signature GB10 features a specially-designed half bone/half brass nut.
