More about Ibanez Guitars

The roots of the Ibanez brand began with the Spanish luthier and inventor, Salvador Ibanez, whose impeccable instruments were widely sought after in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Distributor Hoshino Gakki began importing Ibanez guitars into Japan and, after the original company disbanded, they eventually adopted the Ibanez name. While the production of Ibanez instruments moved to Japan, superior craftsmanship and innovation prepared Ibanez to take a prominent position in the guitar market from the '50s onward.


The modern era of Ibanez electric guitars began in mid '70s, with models like the Roadstar and the Iceman - the guitar that inspired the PS-10 that KISS guitarist Paul Stanley played from 1977 to 1980. In 1987, Ibanez teamed up with Steve Vai to create the JEM in 1987, their original modded double-cut model, which led to the RG series. Both the JEM and RG series continue to be among Ibanez's most popular models. Another highly popular model introduced in 1987 was the S (Saber) series, whose mahogany body and thin Wizard neck found favor among a new generation of aggressive guitarists.

Ibanez Guitar Technology

As Ibanez's solidbody electric guitar lineup has continuously expanded, along with their growing roster of endorsed artists, they've managed to achieve an exceptional balance between maintaining their popular models while offering new models with improved technology. Their double-locking Edge Tremolo is a long-standing favorite of Joe Satriani and Tom Morello, and the remarkably stable yet thin Wizard neck carve has evolved into a shape that many top shredders prefer. Likewise, the wide selection of 7- and 8-string electric guitars, such as those offered in their Iron Label series, have made Ibanez a mainstay of metal guitarists.
