Ibanez Artcore

Ibanez is a guitar manufacturer started by Hoshino Gakki in Japan. Back in 1900, when the company started they were called the Hoshino Gakki Company, and only started making string instruments in 1935.

These early stringed instruments were not known in the West until the 1960s when Gakki partner with Harry Rosenbloom, a Pennsylvania music shop owner. Together, they decided to name Ibanez guitars to make it more attractive to the public West.

When the 70 hit, Ibanez began making the model of popular guitar styles that companies like Gibson and Fender were putting out. Despite of which were almost exact replicas, which were made with cheaper materials and therefore inexpensive.

However, Ibanez has changed. Model no longer of their guitars after other styles published by different companies. They have their own and makes the models that are supported by some high level players.

The new Ibanez guitars are more modern in design and style. You can find some with interesting shapes and designs. Also, artists like Steve Vai work closely collaboration with the company to manufacture special models with their own artistic flare. (For example, Vais tree of life pattern on the fretboard).

Another modern style element includes the fact that they have slimmer necks and flatter fingerboards than classical style guitars. This makes the speed intricate and precise does the job much easier. Also watch out for the different models with different finishes and electronics.

An example of some the guitars you can find are the Prestige Series guitars, the Vai Signatures, Pat Metheny Signatures, Korn Signatures, Joe Satriani Signatures, and the signing of Andy Timmons, guitar. These guitars were designed with the signature or by the artists themselves. Other models include the S series guitars, special models for left-handed, and the Artcore guitars.

There are also some artists who use and support the brand. These include Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, two highly regarded instrumental rock guitarists who often tour together. Andy Timmons, Korn, Pat Metheny, George Benson, Terry Balsamo of Evanescence, Fran Cosmo of Boston, Marty Friedman, John Scofield, and Matt Roberts of 3 Doors Down.

This is what some people have to say about Ibanez guitars (source Harmony Central):

I've been playing for 3 years and this is my account of my real guitar. I've always played Ibanez, I like the look, feel and sound of them. If this were stolen I would definitely get another of these and I think to replace my GRX170 to another, I do want to call another me crazy, but I want another guitar with string arrangements normal for him. I love everything about this guitar, the look, touch, sound, it definitely has its own character. (Harmony Central users on RG32Q0S)
