Re: Why call Ibanez, "Ibeenhad"?

"Ibeenhad" was coined in the days when Ibanez was making Strat and Les Paul copies that were so good, you couldn't tell the difference, and in some cases, the Gibson copies were BETTER than what Gibson was making at the time. \

The Ibanez guitars were of lower cost than the 'real things' and some retailers would try to pass of Ibanez as made by Fender and Gibson, hence those that didn't know better had 'been had', and if you were one of them, I Been Had!"

(None of this is true, but it's a good story. LOL) Sorry if I had you going there...
