More about Ibanez

Ibanez, a brand with roots in Nagoya, Japan, has a rich history that intertwines with the evolution of music itself. Established by Hoshino Gakki, the company initially imported classical guitars by master luthier Salvador Ibanez before crafting their own instruments under the Ibanez brand. As rock 'n' roll took the world by storm, Ibanez adapted to the changing tastes by producing unique and innovative guitar designs.

The brand gained a reputation for quality and affordability, attracting renowned musicians like Bob Weir and Paul Stanley. Ibanez's lawsuit era in the late 1970s led to the company focusing on original designs, setting the stage for its future success. Their entrance into the world of effects pedals resulted in the creation of the legendary Tube Screamer, which has become an industry staple.

Ibanez's commitment to high-performance guitars made them a popular choice among shredders and virtuosos, with signature models designed for artists like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Paul Gilbert. The brand's pioneering efforts in seven-string guitars helped shape the nu-metal sound and has since become synonymous with the genre. Today, Ibanez continues to push boundaries with innovative instruments for musicians at the forefront of their craft, solidifying its place in musical history.
