Ibanez is a Japanese guitar brand owned by Hoshino Gakki. Based in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan, Hoshino Gakki were one of the first Japanese musical instrument companies to gain a significant foothold in import guitar sales in the United States and Europe. The wiki covers all aspects of Ibanez guitars and all are welcome to contribute!

Backstage

As a wiki, all content on this site is generated by users. If you have something to add to the site, please feel free to do so.

The main focus of the site is solid body electric guitars sold by Ibanez since 1978; this area is covered comprehensively. Nearly complete coverage of hollow and semi-hollow body electric guitars also extends back through 1978. We are beginning to expand the scope to encompass every Ibanez instrument including basses and acoustics but coverage of these instrument types is available for only the past couple of years. Our intention is to extend this coverage as time allows. Eventually we'd love for the site to cover all things Ibanez, not only instruments, but also amps, electronics, and accessories, but non-instrument coverage is on the back burner for now.

If you are interested in helping the site grow, we would welcome and greatly appreciate your assistance. The Project portal is a great place to get started. If you have a question, try the FAQ or submit your own question here. If you want to interact with others in the community, check out the forum.

Wiki updated for 2021

This morning I completed the task of updating the wiki for the 2021 models. This includes every stringed instrument sold by Ibanez: solid body electric guitars and basses, semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars and basses, acoustic guitars and bass guitars, classical guitars, piccolo guitars, ukuleles, mandolins and banjos.

The 2021 lineup as of this moment consists of 539 models. Of these 70 are new for 2021 and 137 others have some changes from the previous year. 151 models were not carried over from 2020.

Check out the entire lineup in the 2021 Portal.

Wiki updated for 2020

This afternoon I completed the initial sweep of 2020 models from existing catalogs and the Ibanez website. This effort includes all Ibanez instruments including solid body and hollow body guitars and basses, acoustic and acoustic/ electric guitars and basses, piccolo guitars, ukuleles, mandolins and banjos. As of now we have a total of 546 2020 instruments documented.

Next steps will include double-checking the website as well as scouring retailer sites to make sure we capture all the spot models. I'll also do a check against the 2019 models to ensure nothing inadvertently got dropped.

Please take …

2019 models are live

Over the past weekend I finished updating the wiki with the initial models for the 2019 product year. So far we have documented 222 models for 2019 from the Ibanez website and the German catalog which has been released. This includes 48 new models and an additional 95 with changes.

I would expect that we'll see a couple more new things from the NAMM show which opens on January 24. As always, we'll update the wiki as soon as possible when anything new is announced.

Introducing Portals (a.k.a. Browse)

Until now there has not been any easy way to browse the wiki in any meaningful way. To address that shortcoming we've recently completed the first phase of the Portal implementation. Portals are meant to provide a way to navigate the wiki.

The first phase includes the creation of yearly Portals for each year back to 1987. Check out the 2017 Portal to get an idea of what this is all about. This page provides a list (including images) of all of the current models with links to the individual model articles.

The next step involves crafting portals for each guitar series. This remains a work in pro…

  1. Keep it civil: Do not make personal attacks on other people. If you need to criticize another user’s argument, do so without attacking them as a person.

  2. Be a productive member of the wiki: Contribute to the wiki in line with the established processes and conventions. Need help? Ask an administrator! Disrupting the wiki with “edit warring” over differing opinions of a topic with another user or group of users is not productive.
  3. Do not engage in excessive self-promotion: The wiki is a collaborative community resource for the topic at hand. It is NOT a free place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, etc. Have a question about whether your link would be welcome? Ask an administrator!
  4. Do not harass other users: If somebody asks you to stop posting certain content on their wall, respect their wishes. It is their wall.
