1991 Ibanez Voyager guitar presented by Reb Beach

Over two years ago, I approached the people at Ibanez about ideas I had for the ultimate guitar…sort of the guitar of my dreams. More than just a hard rock guitar, it would be a combination of the traditional and the radical…something a lot of different kinds of people could play and feel comfortable with. Since my playing puts me in many different playing situations, I needed an instrument that was extremely versatile. Finally after a lot of hard work, everything is perfect. I’m proud to present the Ibanez Voyager. – Reb Beach

1974 Sal & the Holmes Gang play Ibanez Golden Oldies Guitars

“These Ibanez Golden Oldies is the best guitars what we ever have played. They got a way out sound and the chicks flip over the cool way that they look. Like, Lamont’s “Rocket Roll” and my “Firebrand” when we play behind our heads and do the stroll at the same time. And Ibanez Golden Oldies is so tough that when Manuel fell off of his Harley with his “Deluxe ’59er’ it didn’t even bust. And Ricky says that is “FM Jr.” is so not expensive that he didn’t even have to seal nothing to buy it…”

1978 Ibanez – Everybody’s Handmade Guitar

The word handmade always strikes up thoughts of exotic instruments with exorbitant price tags. Now consider Ibanez. Ibanez guitars are hand made in the true sense – all of the operations that effect the sound and playability are performed by a skilled craftsman. All the bracing is shaped by hand, all the instruments are set up and adjusted by hand. The result of all this care is a guitar that sounds right, feels right and last long.

Guitars shown: S300SV, V300/S, A300BS, M340

1979 The Ibanez Musician EQ Bass wins by a neck.

At last…No Dead Notes!

Just about any electric bass you pick up has dead notes on the fingerboard. This is a problem bassists have been wrestling with for years…

The Ibanez TR/Tuned Response Neck

Each Ibanez Musician bass neck is tuned with two unequal length steel rods embedded under the fingerboard (on either side of the truss rod) to eliminate large peaks and sharp dips. The result is a bass that’s a noticeable improvement over any other instrument you’ve played. Because it’s made of wood, it’s got a warm feel and a sound that’s full of character, but because it’s a TR neck, the response is smooth and even. But the TR neck is only part of the Musician EQ Bass story…
