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.

Ibanez X-series

I have an Ibanez X-series guitar,
: model number XV500,serial number F853801.
: Can someone tell me how much this kind of guitar is worth?
: Are they still making them?

Re: Ibanez X-series

The XV500X is no longer in production. This was an 80's metal guitar with limited appeal. I have seen them advertised used for $500.00 and less because of the limited market and return to more traditional shapes. I myself am looking for one now.

Re: Ibanez X-series

I have one for sale now. Where are you located?

Ibanez Lonestar LS370

I'm looking for information on an Ibanez Lonestar LS370. How much are they and do you have any idea on where to purchase one?

Re: Ibanez Lonestar LS370

I have one that is about 20 years old now and with a new set of Elixer strings my friends can't believe the sound. It kicks ass on my buddies Martin D35 for sound and playability. Love the Martin but when this guitar seasons it sounds great. Good luck in the search

floid rose

I have a floid rose bridge on my custom shop ibanez and I just tried a new idea. One of my friends told me to take a set of 58's and put on my guitar. so I bought some and tried to put them on my guitar. But it keeps pulling my bridge way up! I dont know if this is right, Like i should not have thoes strings on my guitar. I am getting sick of little ernieball slinky pinks.

IBANEZ AE400TV

Re: AE400TV

: Somebody ever heard of this model????
: IBANEZ AE400TV

I recently purshased a AE400TV Ibanez. My research indicated that the guitars were manufactured from 1994-1996. It is an acoustic/electric, single cut with piezo, mahogany back and sides, spruce top. The retail value is from $300 to $350 from low excellent to high excellent condition.

Re: AE400TV

yeah, i recently bought one at a pawn shop, i really like it, its an accoustic electric with a cutout, its awesome

Re: AE400TV

: Somebody ever heard of this model????
: IBANEZ AE400TV

si, yo tengo una Ibanez AE400TV. Te puedo decir que es una guitarra acustica de media caja preciosa, que suena estupendamente tanto en limpio como conectada, y que es un modelo que se vendio durante muy poco tiempo a muy bajo precio para la calidad que tiene. Sinceramente, yo estoy enamorado de ella por su sonido.

Re: AE400TV

: Somebody ever heard of this model????
: IBANEZ AE400TV

I 'm looking at one at the moment hanging on my wall. So don't be alarmed they really do exist, unless of course we are sharing the hallucination (actually that's quite likely)... Unfortuneately there aint much info on them. If I learn anything I'll keep you posted.

Re: AE400TV

I bought from a pawn shop, the guy showed me a book that listed its retail value at $497, I really like mine, and it plays like a champ
