Ibanez Guitars

Official Website

If you wanted a total history of Ibanez you´d have go back to 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya Japan.

If you wanted a little less completeness than that you´d go back about forty-five when Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or perhaps you´d simply go to the Mid 60´s when Hoshino, who by that time had purchased the rights to the Ibanez name, began shipping incredibly funky looking guitars to the United States, many of which were actually sold in department stores.

But for most of us, Ibanez pretty much begins almost 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA for more efficiently distributing Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of those guitars were Ibanez´ famous high quality (but very inexpensive) copies of just about everything–you name it, we probably made a version of it. At that time many American instruments were going through an unfortunate period of increasing prices with decreasing quality, and these copies hit a ready market.

I have one of those I think, all it says on the inside is Ibaneze Vintage Model 627-12. Plays really nice!

This was out of pocket until about two weeks ago. I've often wondered about the value myself. Any Ideas?

Wanted Ibanez AM-50 or any small bodied semi

Please email me or reply if you can help me out! thanks.

Re: Wanted Ibanez AM-50 or any small bodied semi

It just so happens I have a 1983 AM-50 I purchased in 1985 that I have been thinking of selling. I play mostly accoustic now and it has been unused in its case for some time. It is a violin burst finish with twin hornbuckle pickups. I would consider it to be in very good condition. Can not say excellent as it has a small nick at the top of the tuning body. I have photos if your interested. my home email is bixby40@aol.com

Info on Ibanez Talman

Hi there! I’m in desperate need to learn more about the Ibanez Talman electric guitar. I know about the various models made like the TC825 and TC420 but what I’m truly after is the story behind how this great instrument was born. I’m also in knowing what had happened to the Talman of late...has it been discontinued? Are they easy to find in the UK (where i am) any help would be truly appreciated. If any body has any links to websites with the information on, again I’d be most grateful. Thank you!

Re: Info on Ibanez Talman

did you have any luck with this? I have a talman TC530 (one of the very first). I'm interested if you have any info.

Ibanez Model 645

I just purchased an Ibanez Model 645 Acoustic Guitar. It reads Ibanez York Model 645 on the inside label. I got it for $$. It does play pretty good aside needing new strings. When was this produced? My guess is 1978 or so, How much is the value?

ibanez 645a

One of those 645 a's (produced in 1974, ibanez vintage model 645a) in fair condition (missing one of the circular fret inlays, a broken string, some neck damage) sold in 2012 for almost 2 grand. I'm sure yours is worth some $$ too! Take care of your 645a!!! I have one too (a vintage), she plays beautifully. They were worth about $400 back in '74. My grandmother bought mine for my uncle in '92 for about $150 & it got handed down to me 2 years ago.

Ibanez 645

Bought mine brand new at a guitar store in colorado springs for about 200 dollars. i love it but it needs to be refurbished.

Ibanez 645

Well, I got mine in 1976. Worth a good 50 or 60 bucks now, but cost over $189.00 then. Apparently, age doesn't have any value in guitars nowadays.

Ibanez 645

Hello,

the Akustikguitar Ibanez 645 is Made 1975 and kost at 1975, 390,00 Dollar!

I have an '82 AS-200 that is all original (I bought it new in '82) that I may be willing to sell. It's from the prime era (early '80's) for the model, so it's a good one.
