Ibanez are about performance, designing hardware, fast necks and using precision engineering to bring it all together. Since they introduced the RG series in the 80's their mission has been clear. To make the best damn guitars that please the most demanding players. A top choice for hard rock guitarists like Steve Vai, many of them adopting the 7 string models that Ibanez helped popularise. Jazz guitarists love them too, particularly the semi-acoustic ranges.
If it's good enough for musicians pushing at the boundaries of their technical ability, then it should be good enough for us mere mortals right? Thankfully Ibanez are also pretty good at keeping things affordable, with even Premium models cheap enough for the committed guitarist. There's no frivolous aged bodies or vintage recreations here, every penny spent on an Ibanez goes towards making it the best guitar it can be.
Ibanez acoustics represent great value for money too. Fitted with electronics to for use on stage but with a mellow tone that suits recording as well.
