Product Description

Ibanez Guitar and Bass Cases are the real deal - quality and value, built just for your guitar!
Other cases may look like an Ibanez case. But if it doesn't say Ibanez, it isn't an Ibanez. Only Ibanez cases are designed specifically to fit and protect your Ibanez guitar or bass.

Accept no substitutes! Protect your investment by insisting on the genuine article. Generic look alike cases designed to fit everything rarely fit anything right. Only Ibanez cases and bags are made to fit the unique shape of Ibanez guitars and basses. If it doesn't say Ibanez on the case, it isn't an Ibanez.


Ibanez Guitars - A Short History Of A Company With A Long History
If you wanted a total history of Ibanez you'd have go back to 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya Japan.

If you wanted a little less completeness than that you'd go back about forty-five when Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or perhaps you'd simply go to the Mid 60's when Hoshino, who by that time had purchased the rights to the Ibanez name, began shipping incredibly funky looking guitars to the United States, many of which were actually sold in department stores.

But for most of us, Ibanez pretty much begins almost 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA for more efficiently distributing Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of those guitars were Ibanez' famous high quality (but very inexpensive) copies of just about everything–you name it, we probably made a version of it. At that time many American instruments were going through an unfortunate period of increasing prices with decreasing quality, and these copies hit a ready market.

But the people with Ibanez weren't content with just copying and Ibanez began making their own designs: the solid body Artists (played by Bob Weir of the Dead) the Iceman (first made famous by Paul Stanley of KISS and the George Benson guitars, the first jazz boxes designed for higher volume stage playing. Many of these "first" Ibanez guitars continue to increase in value and a good number are now highly prized collector's items.

By 1976, the Ibanez copy era officially came to an end when one of the major American guitar manufacturers--no longer amused by the copiers–successfully sued the highest profile copier, Ibanez. But by that time it didn't matter–Ibanez had already left the copies behind and was fast becoming an innovative guitar company in its own right.

By the mid-80's with the interest in instrumental rock guitar on the rise, Ibanez collaborated with players such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert and brought out the JEM, JS, RG and S models. Today, present day versions such as these models still considered the standard in hard rock and instrumental rock guitars.

As well known for its jazz guitars as it is for rock, Ibanez has an impressive line of jazz boxes including the aforementioned George Benson models, two Pat Metheny models, and most recently, the new John Scofield signature semi-acoustic.

One final note...Ibanez is also one of the top selling bass companies in the world (in many places the top selling bass). Ibanez first drew attention in the 70's and 80's with its neck-thru Musician basses with active electronics. Today, Ibanez offers the huge number of 4, 5, and 6 basses in the Soundgear line, as well as the Ergodyne models, the basses of the future.

Excellent case. A little light for the money, but adequate. I am a big fan of Ibanez quality and I use this case for the 12 string Ibanez. Fantastic guitar for the money.

Incredible guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the 1st guitar I've ever ordered and to be honest, I was VERY nervous. Right out of the shipping box, it played like a dream. Didnt need to do adjustments whatsoever. And then there's how it sounded... 1 word... WOW!!! Plays and sounds like a dream. HIGHLY recommend this guitar before you buy a guitar that cost hundreds... even thousands... more.

Beautiful and does the job!
What is your opinion of this product?
It is perfectly contoured to the Ibanez AEL1512E 12-string acoustic-electric guitar I purchased it with, almost too tight at first but that just means nice and snug with no movement in the case! Doesn’t stand up, so it’s gotta be on its side or back which isn’t a big deal and is how most people would open it up anyway. The top buckle was messed up upon delivery, but that was an easy fix. And that about wraps it up! Definitely get the case to protect your instrument!

Not terribly impressed with this case.
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this case to go with my EW series guitar. I have to say the case is disappointing. On the outside, the Ibanez wording is sprayed on with a stencil that has left a nice "halo" of excess paint bleeding away from the wording. Even though the case is supposed to be the correct one for my guitar, the guitar did not fit until I crunched all the padding down. And I do indeed mean "crunch" quite literally...it makes a crunching sound. Even after doing that, it is nearly impossible to put the guitar in the case without activating the tuner on the padding. Forget any inclination about leaving the strap on the guitar when it goes in this case. Finally, the little compartment to hold you accessories and picks and such doesn't really close well on the one I got. So, in short...love the guitar, but the case doesn't meet up to the same quality.

Fits my Ibanez zebra-wood acoustic-electric perfectly. Don't settle for a one-size-fits all.... they never do!!

If you bought an Ibanez AEL you need this case!
Your general opinion of this product.
My Ibanez AEL10L fits comfortably into this well padded and sturdy guitar case. Snug fit, don't have to worry about the guitar moving about. Storage area for accessories, picks, etc. Worth the investment.
