A few words about Ibanez:
Why should you play an Ibanez when there are other famous name guitars to choose from?
One reason is experience: They've been making acoustic guitars for fifty years and electrics for over forty.
The second reason is their instruments are as different from other guitars as you are from other guitarists. They've survived and grown in the shadow of the "Big Guitar Companies" because they're not locked in by tradition.
That's not to say they don't have famous classic guitars of their own. But by keeping their ears open to music as it changes and player's needs as they change, they're able to constantly offer something different, real alternatives to the same three or four old standards.
