Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

Dear Mr. Hosono,

I'm in total agree with society of jemsite. People in here love your products. And i know the biggest market of your corporation is states. So that prices of 1st hand products are acceptable in the states, if we compare the European ones.

I'm not really sure how all transportation processes are going, but in the first thought anyone can think that the budgets must be lower than america, becuse Italy, Spain, Turkiye or England are more closer than states to Korea, Indonesia or even Japan, where ibanez guitars are made...

I just want to know, if there may be improvement program for better, faster and cheaper transportations from guitar builder country to europe. Because with succes of some kind of better transportation process, i believe, better sale quotas can be achieved for all over europe.

And the more i can say in this section is that: More Colours please I loved all ibanez guitars with neon and live colours, maple fingerboards since the first time. It was an ibanez classic. By the way, modern ibanez guitars have many actual advantages like 3 or 5 piece reinforced necks for warping, piezo bridges... I find to combine cosmetic advantages of past and strengthness and technological advantages of todays, modern guitars...

Best Regards,

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

I don't know if any of you have seen it yet, but there is a new RG350 "Exclusive" in "Candy Apple Red" being sold over at the "Music Uno Dos Tres" site. I just saw it yesterday.

If this is Ibanez' way of letting us know they're listening, all I can say is thank you.

Also, I echo the other members in saying "Thank you" to Mr. Hosono for stopping by here once in a while.

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

Nienturi, it's good to put those kind of inputs (i.e. inputs that don't refer specifically to models or products etc), but i think you should open a specific thread apart and address it to Ibanez in general. that would be the better way for Ibanez reps (not the LACS ppl) to read it. and i would open it on the Ibanez forum also.
probably Mr.Tak would report your questions to some reps but it's not a task of his. Tak's presence here is a bless, we shouldn't "abuse" of it.

Hi Nuno,

You are absolutely right about it.

My aim was just my thoughts to be transmitted to someone from ibanez, not to be unpolite to him or anyone.

Take Care

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

Mr Hosano.


Why doesnt Ibanez open up the USA custom shop to the public. That way you can make the lower quality entry level guitars and the whiners can fork over the money to have what they want made. Almost all other guitar makers have USA custom shop option.

As far as the entry level stuff be all that, well if it was people wouldnt be contemplating switching there loyalties to say ESPee,Jackson or even Kramer since they now make reissues of legendary USA guitars. Not being a smart butt here, just making a point that may help Ibanez understand there customers. I myself would choose a custom shop Ibanez over jackson but its not an option. A nice neon pink RG maple board reverse headstock shark fin inlays mahogany bodied with EMGs.
