the best affordable jazz guitar
Dr Jazz, 04.04.2020
By affordable I mean under three grand (less than a 175)...This guitar competes with my L5 - which I find very hard to understand given its construction, pickup arrangement and price. If you want a good jazz guitar and are frightened by the money involved (if you're a musician rather than a lawyer that is) this is really the right guitar to get. Its tried and tested - and it has real depth of tone, clarity, playability and aesthetic appeal. After maybe 30 top-end jazz guitars in as many years this is in a way the most impressive of all of them - because it produces the right sounds with laminated construction and a small ergonomic body. I have been convinced for years that even a 3'' body depth rather than Gibson's standard 3 3/8'' destroys tone - this guitar proves that I have been wrong all along. And what a great shape it is!

Beser als "perfekt" geht nicht!
joeGB, 21.06.2017
Die Ibanez GB 10 habe ich als begehrenswertes Instrument seit 1978 auf dem Schirm. Leider stehe ich so gar nicht auf den Namensgeber, weder musikalisch noch gitarristisch.
Daher hatte ich auch jahrzehntelang keine Lust die ansonsten für mich so tolle Gitarre zu kaufen. Ich habe immer gehofft, Ibanez würde das Teil auch mal als reguläres Modell in den Katalog mit aufnehmen. Taten sie aber nie, wenn man mal von dem Billigmaterial absieht, was aber keinerlei Ähnlichkeit mit der hier zu besprechenden Gitarre hat.

Die GB 10 ist absolut makellos verarbeitet, da findet sich nicht das kleinste Detail, das Anlass zur Kritk geben würde.
Die Ansprache ist aussergewöhnlich. Aufgrund der massiven Decke und der Floatingtonabnehmer hüpfen die Noten höchst artikuliert aus dem Instrument. Für sehr schnelle 16tel Linien ist das eine perfekte Ausgangsbasis. Meine laminierte Jazzgitarre kam da schlichtweg nicht mehr mit. Der Ton hat dort zu lange gebraucht um zu entstehen. Auf der GB 10 ist das keinerlei Problem. Sehr beeindruckend.

Rein optisch empfinde ich diesen Gitarrentyp als die schönste, stilvollste und edelste Jazzgitarre der Welt. Meine L5 und meine Super 400 kommen da nie und nimmer ran.

Die GB 10 hat weiterhin einen derart tollen Hals, dass sie sich spielt wie Butter. Unglaublich! Die Werkseinstellung ist perfekt. Der Ton ist rund, ausgewogen und jazzig. Keinesfalls tauglich für verzerrte Sachen, aber ich fahre ja auch nicht mit einem Lamborghini Aventador zum Einkaufen.:-)

Sofern man das Instrument also der Stlistik entsprechend adäquat einsetzt ist alles bestens. Man kann hier nur die volle Punktzahl geben. Und hätte ich mich von dem Signature-Gedöns nicht abhalten lassen, hätte ich die Gitarre bereits seit mindestens dreißig Jahren. Aber ich musste wohl erst so alt werden, bevor ich darüber hinwegsehen konnte.

Fazit: eine Jazzgitarre der Oberliga zu einem fantastischen Preis in einer Verarbeitungsqualität, die nicht übertroffen werden kann. Besser als "perfekt" geht nicht!
