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 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.

2018 models are now live

I've just finished updating the wiki with the initial models for the new product year. So far we have documented 201 models for 2018 from the Ibanez website and the European catalog which has been released.

I would expect that we'll see a couple more new things from the NAMM show which opens this Thursday. 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…

2017 models are up-to-date

It's been a few weeks since Ibanez's new 2017 lineup made its debut at the NAMM show. As of this morning I finished the task of adding all the new models and updating all of the models carried over from previous years. So the wiki should now contain all known current Ibanez solid body guitar models.

The easiest way (for now) to see all the 2017 models in one place is to check out Category:2017 models. In the near future I hope to have a 2017 portal created which will be similar to this one for 2014.

As of now I've seen only the USA and European 2017 catalogs. We've also got the 2017 USA new pro…
