Here's a funny subject.
You know how you can see words for years and not be sure how to pronounce them because you've never actually heard anyone SAY them? Well, I just realized I've never actually heard anyone pronounce the name of two guitars.
The first is the Epiphone. I actually heard someone pronounce it a couple of weeks ago, and they said, "Ep-i-phone." Sorry, no "schwa" (the upside-down "e" used in phonetic spellings) available on the keyboard, so just substitute that for the unaccented "i" in the second syllable. I had always assumed it was "E-pif-i-nee." A word that means "sudden insight." But the other pronunciation is probably correct.
The second is Ibanez. Anyone care to suggest the correct pronunciation so I don't embarass myself somewhere?
