Ibanez started out as a Japanese company specializing in making quality copies of famous American guitars.
Today it is known to many as a great guitar company in its own right, mainly for metal and hard rock players, but in truth they make guitars for just about every style and genre. But heavy music is definitely where they shine, and the metal crowd has flocked to Ibanez for decades.
The RG is probably their most iconic instrument, but the S series is also beloved by shredders. Of course theyve also been innovators in the field of 7string guitars, starting back in 1990 with the Universe, the first 7string guitar on the market.
