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.

Hi all,

I've bought myself an Ibanez 6 string with the "CT series" designation on it. Anybody know anything about this guitar ? All my searches on the net have turned up is that the CT Series should be a bass which this definately isn't.

Any help appreciated !!!

AS200

I'm interested in learning more about the AS200 model guitar ... if Ibanez still produces them. If there's a used one out there that someone's interested in selling. Furthermore, I'm thinking of purchasing an AS120, and would like to get some feedback about this model--if anyone out their owns one. I appreciate your time and consideration.

Re: AS200

I happen to own an as200 and af120. the as200 has to be one of the finest guitars made for the price. Mine is a year old in mint (and i mean mint) condition. I am thinking of selling it. the af120 is a nice korean made archtop with the same awsome super 58 pickups that are on the as200. this is a pretty guitar, not flashy. the workmanship is excellent, and has a beautifull tone. do you have any specific questions about these guitars?

Re: AS200

Hi, is the AS200 still for sale? I am interested. Do you have anp pics, and how much do you want for it?

thank you

ibanez RG 340

Does anyone know anything about this guitar. Like what's it worth, when was it manufactured, etc. I have one and really like it. But I can't find any info out about it. Thanks

Re: ibanez RG 340

Hi. I have one too and absolutely love it. Apparently they are a discontinued model..(I've had mine for about ten years), and according to the www.ibanez.com site the price of discontinued models is sky-rocketing. I'm having a hard time finding any info myself....very rarely see one at all. Hang on to it.....could be very valuable one day!

Hi all: I am in Nova Scotia and also own an M-340. I didn't think there were any more around. I bought mine in the 70's off theshelf and am currently having some work done to it. I plan to incorporate it back into my live show.

Would love to correspond with anyone on theis instrument. I also have two other odd Ibanez guitars.

Price on the deceptive IBANEZ TALMAN!

Hey is there anyone out there who can give me a pretty reasonable idea of what these Talman's cost, The Offspring's guitar player Noodles plays them and i like the sound it puts out. Please email me back either a place to find them or just tell me a price you think is reasonable. Thanks bunches!

Re: Price on the deceptive IBANEZ TALMAN!

Talmans are pretty hard to come bye.. your best best is to periodically check ebay or just keep trying different search engines such as I do. I have a gold sparkle TC420 and it is wonderful, definately my favorite of the 9 guitars I own. Right now I'm getting rid of an Epiphone Les Paul Standard and a Squier Jagmaster to get a Talman. As for price, it depends on the model.. the 420's are probably around $300 or so now and my guess, the most expensive you would find would be around $600 for the 825's.

Re: Price on the deceptive IBANEZ TALMAN!

First off, THE OFFSPRING RULE, and secondly, i was at a guitar shop that had a talman, just a plane jane one i think, and it was only $750 Canadian
