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.

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

: Korn and Limpbizkit are horrible musicians, song writers, and guitarists and bring down the Ibanez name with so many fantastic players/bands using them like Steve Vai, Dream Theater, Paul Gilbert, and of course myself.
Korn, Limp-Ass-Bizkit, and a bunch of bands know suck! These guys don't know how to really play guitar! I mean, I was strummin' bar chords when I first picked up a guitar. These guys are a bunch of wannabe-tough guys who hide inability behind walls of excess distortion. Play an arpeggio for Christ sake! Learn to play a solo for crying out loud! "Falling Away From Me"! The only thing falling away from Korn is their careers! "I did it all for the nookie"! You did it all for the money, you no talent havin' muhfuka! Why don't you do it all for the people and quit while you're ahead!

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit rule you stupid fagots

have any of you ever seen tablature for a korn or limp bizkit song? because if you did you would change your minds.
one of the main reasons that they dont play any solos is because they dont like to show off. i would like to see some of you people
play a korn song and play it good. until then all of you can kiss my ass.

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit rule you stupid fagots

Exactly My Friend. People dont know music when they hear it. They dont have to do solos because the weird sounds they do is enough. Its called being "ORIGINAL". I have been a Friend since their first cd. Dont let them fuck around with you.

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit rule you stupid fagots

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

I think all of you guys need a girlfriend, or a new magazine or something.......

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

all these mtv brainwashed punks can't help it, so we cant be too hard on them.All they can understand is the commercial rap rock clone robot generation than Carson Daly crams down their throat all day. It's a symtom of the sickness of the world. "You can't front me homie"? PLEASE!

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

You gotta admit, Korn and Limp Bizkit were very original.
Now however they're still recycling old riffs as new ideas which isn;t cool.
They're flogging a dead horse and need to either change with the times or get stuck
sometime in the mid to late 90's where they were revloutionary and stagnate.
Good band, good style, good music, shame they only had one good idea and keep
using that one instead of making an effort to come up with something new.

Re: Korn and Limpbizkit suck

fuck limpbizkit fuck fred durst so bad singer with bad musicians

Re: Ibanez Talmans

From what I understand they stopped making talmans in '98, which is when I got mine.. they're great guitars.

Ibanez Concord 647

I have a Ibanez Concord 647 acoustic (gibsonlike inlays, Fender headstock) that I bought in 78 (I guess), still works fine for me. Just my guitar something else doesn't sound or feel as good.

Anyone who knows what it's worth nowadays.

Thanks

Not that I want to sell it

look

I eat shit and fuck 7-strings

Re: look

Shut up man, i play a seven string....and i dont even like korn or ne uv them, all they do is bang around on them, but if u make more melodic stuff, and dont just chunk on them they're really kool.

Ibanez Concord 665 Cherry #75119

If anyone could tell me when this guitar was made and what kind of blue book value it carries it would be much appreciated.
