Yeah but the logo Ford gave up on in favour of the oval was a winged pyramid, with the inscription universal car so us jemsiters should lament it's disappearance.

No, but then Ibanez has had it's fair share of logos before it settled on the swoosh we know and love.

When you find the right logo...

Once people get familiar with the logo, they do NOT want it to change.

if i were a marketing guy from ibanez i'd be listening to the numbers but i'd keep in mind the consumers wellbeing... you know for a 10 year old player and sticking with the brand that is something you appreciate!!!

Just as if Fender had the bright spark to get rid of their famous "Backwards F", there would be riots and protests to no end. The backwards F speaks "Fender" louder than "F-E-N-D-E-R" does. That's purely because it's bold and simple.

If Marshall decided to change their font, there would be an uprising like no other.

The exact same concept with the Ibanez logo. You see a headstock with a huge swoosh on it, you KNOW it's an Ibby. It's bold, simple and best of all, it adds character. Taking it away from the top end models is just plain stupid.

Yeah, bounty made that mistake, who wants to buy a kitchen roll called plenty?
I think ibanez should have the classic logo with prestige written in the corner of the headstock just like the JEM. Thatd be best for me.

Re: In case you Ibanez guys missed it...

As much as I agree that the Classic Ibanez with tick is my choice for the headstock... I think Ibanez's mindset is that the Headstock shape is more important then the logo Itself..

As long as Ibanez dont get rid of the headstock shape and Z type tip on the end... I'll be able to sleep at night :P
