Hi guys, I'm sorry about this but they are NOT sold by Hoshino Gakki. I have no idea whose selling or making these strings but not by us. We have a lot of Ibanez / Tama fake products problems on our hands these days.

Hey thanks Rich, so they are Ibanez brand strings, granted there not made by Ibanez, but none the less, I paid $1AUS for the entire packet. They were on sale in a basket..... I have used them on 2 ibanez guitars and they haven't snapped yet !!

If they're current strings D'Addario is what Ibanez is currently using.

Ibanez doesn't make them, but they brand them. I have several sets here.

Re: Mr Hosono, do Ibanez make Strings ? Cause I bought a set are they fakes ? pics inside

I know when im looking at a chibanez thankyou very much..

If I seemed to believe Ibanez made strings I wouldn't have made this thread, I would have just used them and be done with it.

But
Because
I remember Dimarzio used to make strings and stopped, so i thought maybe Ibanez did also.... It is possible you know !!!

So they may be old from the 80's or the 90's

Anyways id like to get the final Answer from Mr Hosono. Or someone who would know the companies history in production......

I've seen these strings. They are endorsed by Raul Ibanez the baseball player and every pack has a hard as a rock stick of gum in it.

but now she said I can buy one next time we go, if its still there or they got another one for the same price. etc...
You didn't say it was new...... I asked the question because you seem to believe Ibanez makes guitar strings just because they are along side a JEM in some guitar shop/computer store. So I was just checking to see if you were looking at some Chibanez junk or something.

I went and checked Several Ibanez web sites including the one for Thailand. No strings shown. They have picks, straps, tuners, cases, cables etc. but no strings. I've never seen any here in the U.S. either. How about in Australia?

Who knows though..... they may have them manufactured by someone else and packaged with Ibanez logo!
