History of ibanez guitar



A Brief History Of A Company With A Long History

Hoshino Gakki Co. Started in 1908 as a musical instrument sales division of Hoshino Shoten, a bookstore company. The name Ibanez became a brand in 1929, when Hoshino Gakki began importing guitar Salvador Ibáñez from Spain. When the "Salvador Ibáñez" (owner of the company) was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, "Salvador Ibanez" finally disappeared, so Hoshino Gakki bought the "Salvador Ibanez" brand and started making Spanish acoustic guitar in 1935. At first they used "Ibanez Salvador "As a brand name, and ultimately using" Ibanez "as the brand name.
The modern era of Ibanez guitars began in 1957 and the late 1950s. The design part of Ibanez shows that the guitar was being great in the design. The Japanese guitar maker in 1960 largely designed the guitar by copying Europe and in the late 1960s Ibanez the design was also similar to EKO Hagstrom's guitar and design. Hoshino Gakki used FujiGen Gakki Teisco and its factories to produce Ibanez guitars after they (FujiGen) stopped producing their own guitars in 1966. after the guitar factory was closed in 1969/1970, Hoshino Gakki used the Gakki FujiGen Factory guitar as the Ibanez guitar base.
If you want to know the total history of Ibanez you will return to the year 1908 when a company called Hoshino started a music notation store and later became a music product distributor in Nagoya Japan.
If you want to know the completeness of the story is less than that you will return about forty-five years when Hoshino began distributing Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or maybe you'll start in the mid-60s when Hoshino, who at that time has bought the rights on behalf of Ibanez, by initiating a very unique shipment of guitars to the United States, many guitars are actually sold in department stores.
But for most of us, the Ibanez Company started pretty much nearly 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA to more efficiently distribute Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of them are Ibanez's famous high-quality (but very cheap) Ibanez guitars almost all of which are copy-guitars that can be named after you, even we might make that version. At that time many American instruments will pass through an unfortunate period when the price increases with a decrease in quality, and this copyan guitar is ready to hit the market.
But people with Ibanez products are not satisfied with just copyan products and Ibanez started making his own designs: Ibanez Soild Body Artist (played by Bob Weir of the Dead) The Iceman (first made famous by Paul Stanley KISS and some guitars George Benson, Some of the first Jazz Boxes designed for higher volumes to play on the stage.Many "first" products from Ibanez guitars continue to increase in value and quantity well and are now very valuable to collectors.
Since then Ibanez began to bring forth his own guitar designs. The late 1980s and early 1990s were an important period for the Ibanez. Hoshino Gakki began a relationship with former guitarist Frank Zappa, Steve Vai to introduce Ibanez JEM and Ibanez Universe. This is a continuation of success Ibanez launched the model Roadstar and Iceman. Do not get there Hoshino Gakki began to enter the market with RG series, which is cheaper than Ibanez JEM.
Hoshino Gakki also made nylon-stringed acoustic guitars, and a steel-stringed acoustic guitar. The guitar brands are still Ibanez. In 1980 Ibanez guitar manufacture not only in FujiGen, but also made in other Asian countries such as Korea, China and Indonesia. The early 1980s at FujiGen also made Roland's guitar synthesizer, including the StratocasterRoland G-505, the twin-humbucker Roland G-202 Roland G-202 (powered by Eric Clapton, Dean Brown, Jeff Baxter, Yannis Spathas, Steve Howe, Mike Rutherford , Andy Summers and Steve Hackett), and Ibanez X-ING IMG-2010.
In addition to Ibanez, Hoshino Gakki, also has guitar products branded Cimar and Starfield.
In the 1970s, Hoshino Gakki and Kanda Shokai shared some guitar designs and so some Ibanez and Greco guitars have the same features. Guitar Kanda Shokai Greco is a guitar sold in Japan, while Hoshino Gakki Ibanez is a guitar that is sold outside of Japan. From 1982, Ibanez guitars have been sold in Japan as well as outside Japan.
In addition to Greco's guitar, Ibanez also shares designs with Antoria and Mann-branded guitars. Antar brand GItar is managed by JT Coppock Leeds Ltd England. Their CSL guitar run by Charles Summerfield Ltd of England also contributed some design ideas to Hoshino Gakki. They imported Ibanez and CSL guitars to England.

In 1976, the official Ibanez copying era came to an end when one of the major guitar producers in America was no longer
