    Then I took it to my dads woodworking shop and used his surface planer to remove 3/8" off the top...

I have also swapped out the tuners since with some fender locking tuners with the compensated pole heights (so I could yank the string tree).

    Have this beastie! I have always wanted one of these, and they were always WAY above my pay grade. (and talent level, but who cares about that, right?) When I saw it in a pawn shop of all places, I did a double take, then asked to play it. At that point my poor suffering wife let out a sound akin to a groan, and she knew. (God I love that woman!) I then played it, and put it away on lay-away. 2 months later, here she is: A 1991 Ibanez George Benson GB 12, with hand signed label, number 317 for those who care to know these things. (I do!!!!) A total of about 600 were made for the 12th anniversary of it's introduction. it's got one of the nicest ebony boards I have every played, and after a bit of tweaking, every single note in perfectly in tune all across the board! At first glance, it's not that flamey, but as you tilt it, BOOM, flame abounds! (Which is ok with me, despite starting to hate the over abundance of flame maple topped guitars.)

    I made the mistake of leaving my banjo in the back of my car while I went grocery shopping one day. When I came back out, my rear window was smashed and there were 2 banjos in my car.
