    Hi Everyone,
    As Promised, here is a Video.
    George Benson's "My One and Only Love". I added the Lee Ritenour middle and end - But I also threw in some of my own stuff too.
    If this guitar was the only Guitar I could own, I'd be very fortunate. It would suck to only have one guitar though..
    I hope you like..



    Thanks,
    Joe D

    N, hahaaa.. you know what’s funny, I had a cup of Arabian Mocha Sanani about a 1/2 hour before the recording!
    Believe it or not, when I drink coffee before I play, I end up playing like crap! My hands get very jittery..
    Thank you brother, JD

    Joe- nice playing with a lot of complex movement, and you kept it together nicely. The guitar is beautiful and I actually liked not hearing the airiness of a larger / deeper body guitar.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wow what a powerful performance of that tune! Honestly, I never saw the "draw" of the Benson models of guitar, but you've really demonstrated how beautiful it looks and sounds. I thought I had all the guitars I wanted (well except for an ES350 and a Tal Farlow) but now I have to add another to the list!

    That Ibanez deserves your touch, Max405. I was hoping you'd play My One and Only Love...and you did. Johnny Hartman and John Coltrane, brother.

    Joe,

    I have always been surprised by the quality and tremendous sound of the GB models. You show the 100 off to great advantage. I have listened to several of the GB100 videos that you have posted. Tremendous, man.

    Joe D~ What a beautiful rendition of "My One and Only Love"!!

    And how appropriate that you performed it on your newest love. You make that GB100 absolutely sing with its intended gorgeous voice. Any concerns about these downsized archtop models sounding thin or lacking in any way are totally dispelled. Wonderfully thick jazz tones and your phrasing and arpeggios just jump off the keyboard. I thoroughly enjoyed every sweet note.

    Thank you SS. Even though this is was the flagship Ibanez, it is still a bit of an under dog in the world of upscale Jazz Guitars. Not to me! I love this guitar. Thank you SS. I am killing the video editing. DaVinci Resolve is the best I will ever use. It is so powerful and reliable.

    Thank you Stevie. Yeah that was a tough one. There is a lot there. Not too much that I’m not gonna remember it, like a Joe Pass song. This one is just right.

    Lawson, thanks buddy. I always thought the world of the GB guitars. Except I always thought the necks were to shallow for my hands. I’ve adapted and I am glad I did.

    Hey Bro,
    The Hartman Coltrane version is my favorite.
    Ibanez made some ultra exclusive guitars. The craftsmanship is staggering. The guitar is 22 years old a still looks like a baby. And my tech, Brian Kirkner leveled off the neck and basically made it play itself.
    I am very lucky to have this guitar. Thanks Jabbs.

    Thank you GT. Yes, I posted 2 additional videos on YouTube. My favorite of the 3 has to be Ode To A Kudu.
    Thank you so much for the nice things you say buddy.

    Thank you Gitfiddler. These guitars are extremely capable high end Jazz guitars. No mistake about it. They are capable of way more than I can ever bring. And when I am not playing it, I am looking at it. I am glad you posted the pictures that started the ball rolling 5 years ago. I love my GB100

    Thanks.... i AM enjoying the Tal! It has a sound all it’s own and it’s a great one. Even had wife support on the purchase lol.

    But my favorite go to remains my Ibanez AF200...
    No no no where’s near as pretty as your GB100 though. Really a plain Jane.
    These smaller body Ibanez jazz guitars are just so comfy to play.

    Maybe it’s time for an Ibanez Appreciation thread!

    Joe,

    After watching "My One and Only Love," which is one of my favorite charts of all time, I tried to play some of your lines. Well, to make a long story short, I couldn't. (I could figure out the notes, of course, but I couldn't finger the runs fluidly like you play them.)

    Back to the 'shed.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Joe.

    Went outside to the lanai to hear this video. Once play began noticed the palm trees started to rustle their leaves.. Then the Papaya trees started dropping their fruits.... Stopped the video there

    Sound too loud I guess....

    It’s always best to have the support from our wives on guitar purchases. That Tal was on my radar big time but I had already bought this guitar. You got a really nice one and I am assuming at a terrific price.
    Enjoy that beautiful guitar. JD

    I was surprised when Ibanez ceased production of their GB100, it would sell well
    today I suspect. My first two ibanez were a JP20, and a GB10 almost 40years
    ago. and then a GB100, later, I still have a GB10 and an AF200, all of their models
    have outstandingly good QC, consistently,, I'm afraid to say that not all of the many
    Gibsons I have had met the same standard But when they get it right they are
    keepers , and I have four prime examples, three of which are Crimson Custom shop
    manufactured. As our friend Max405 has ably demonstrated the GB100 is an
    excellent guitar, very comfortable to play and with a superb neck. ( The GB10 has a
    1/2" shallower body depth and is less ornate, but still an excellent model to own )

    Nice Video Joe !

    You got it GT. That number took a lot to get right it right. I’m glad I stayed on it.
    Now I have to go a week straight just playing my Johnny Stuff, so I don’t forget any of it.
    But you got it bro. In a couple of days you will have it down.
    Thank you for always being there. And always saying nice, encouraging things. Thanks buddy.

    Don't get me wrong, the tone of the guitar is great, but the playing is exceptional. Great stuff.

    Thank you Foxman. I have a question. How does the neck on your GB10 compare to the neck on the 100? Are they the same? I honestly can’t remember how the neck was in my 10. The neck on this 100 is very similar to the neck on my JP20.

    Aww.. 50hz thanks man. I appreciate that a lot.
    Stringswinger always says, a great guitar inspires your playing. That is so true. I take to a guitar, and then I learn IT. A great guitar just makes me want to play more. Learning a new guitar requires learning and exploring. It keeps my passion alive and burning strong!
    Thanks again. And thank you everyone for the beautiful words.
    No doubt, I get WAAAYYY more enjoyment out of this than you do. I love it. Entertaining is in me blood.
    Thank you.

    Thx ... Sounds more mid-heavy, more bright maybe and not as "deep" as what is usually heard on this forum. Interesting and clearly shows me that A GB10(0) would bring something to the table to suplement my Metheny Ibanez.


    Always wanted a GB, but somehow always passed on them when they actually showed up for sale .. I think I'd better pick one up the next time

    Like many here, I have enjoyed seeing and hearing your videos. I have also witnessed a progression in comfort in your playing that I am almost envious of, as I have not had the courage to take the video journey. The guitar you choose to play is irrelevant to me, but I am well aware of the importance in staying inspired. Hats off to you my friend, you help keep us all inspired.

    Thank you Skiboy.
    I have always battled the jitters when the red light goes on. I still don’t have a single recording where I felt like that was the best I’ve ever played it. I get nervous. It’s always my picking hand that gets me. That’s just me. I try to fight through it though.
    Thanks buddy.
