Re: Everybody needs an Uncle Ben; including Ibanez.

Yeah Ben is awesome, would be cool seeing him get endorsed but I'm not even sure if ibby would hook him up that well.

Pretty much all the guys I know endorsed by them said their deal was not nearly as good as what they could get from another brand...and this was coming from guys with multiple LACS built for them.

I have no doubt that Ben could get an endorsement deal from another brand and with some brands he'd probably even have his own signature model now The reason I think he would make a good endorser, for Ibanez is that he hasn't done so yet, and you'll still see him playing his Ibanez guitars in his videos

Re: Everybody needs an Uncle Ben; including Ibanez.

You guys!!! You're making me blush over here!!

Thank you all so much for the kind words, it really means the world to me. The fine folks at Ibanez definitely know of me through my paint work, videos, and my man Mike Orrigo. I have been an Ibanez maniac ever since i started playing on my brother's pawn shop Ibanez EX.

Thanks for all the views and sweet talk! You guys are the best.

Totally agree with this.

After listening to a lot of stuff Jeff Diamant said about endorsing a product, I think, as a musician, that's the WRONG way to go. Why? You lose the ability to play any guitar you want on stage.

Let's say Ben endorsed Ibanez, but he found this AMAZINGLY built Jackson or Charvel around and wanted to use it on stage. He can't because of the endorser agreement.

I know Ben won't use anything but his Ibbies, but he's better off NOT being an endorser, playing Ibanezes, and showing how good they are without having Ibanez stamp their logo on everything he releases.

Isn't Ben on this site? I could've sworn I've seen him posting his youtube series in the Theory/Lessons section.
