Samick (formally Samick Musical Instruments Co., Ltd.) is a musical instrument maker based in South Korea. It is among the largest musical instrument manufacturers in the world. Samick produced some guitars under contract for Ibanez in the mid-1990s including the Ghostrider series.


Samick was founded 1958. In addition to selling guitars under their own label, Samick produces instruments under contract to a number of companies including Squire, Epiphone, Washburn and Greg Bennett.

In addition to Korea, Samick has plants in China and the United States, while the vast bulk of it's production today is in Indonesia.

Samick's production for Ibanez appears to be limited to a small handful of models produced in 1994 and 1995. These include the aforementioned Ghostrider line as well as a small number of lower-end hollow-body models.
