I am hoping somebody here can help, I am trying to restore a 1982 George Benson GB10 that I was able to get a great deal on. The original owner purchased it as a project guitar and gave up halfway through the restoration as they came to the conclusion they would never complete the project! I'd like to ideally use original vintage parts vs new parts from Ibanez (if possible!).
Parts I'm hunting for are:
- Full set of Tuning keys
- Pick Guard with mounting hardware
- Neck Pickup
- Speed Knobs
I have already been looking on Reverb and E-bay with no success to date!
If you go to an ibanez distributor they can order a new pickguard. My pickups were corroded and I took them to a bumper replating company and they cleaned them up and nickel plated them. Then took to a gold replater and got them gold plated and had the tailpiece plated at the same time. Turned out very well using the original parts.
