Ibanez is a Japanese brand owned by the company called Hoshino Gakki. It is less popular than Yamaha, but its contribution to the music world is really big. This brand has quite a long history. Initially there was a Spanish luthier Salvador Ibanez (in the late 19th and early 20th century) who produced stringed instruments. In 1936 his workshop was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War and the brand itself was purchased by Hoshino Gakki company. Since then Ibanez is a Japanese brand being produced in Japan and distributed all over the world.

After Hoshino Gakki purchased Ibanez trademark they started with copying Gibson and Fender designs. But after the lawsuit in the USA they launched their own designs (the most popular ones are the Roadstar and Iceman). Remarkable feature of this brand is that they were the first to establish mass production of seven-string guitars and eight-string guitars.

Ibanez guitars are very popular among rock and metal guitarists. Like all other big brands Ibanez cooperates closely with professional musicians and this cooperation results in signature models. Ibanez signature guitarists include Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Paul Stanley and many more.
