Ibanez’s foray into the boutique bass domain is off to strong start. The only thing missing is the extra $1,000.00 you didn’t have to spend to enjoy all of the features this six string bass delivers. Most online retailers are offering this bass for sale in the $1,500.00 price range, which is not the price point for basses with this degree of styling and features. Let me give you some details to back this up.

Since the days of “lawsuit” guitars, through the company’s breakout period of Icemans and Professionals, and on into the JEM age, Ibanez has always been about delivering excellent off-the-shelf instruments. But though many of us tend to associate the brand with rock chops these days, some of the company’s first, most important artist associations were with jazz guitarists. And it’s rather telling that some of the genre’s biggest icons like George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield choose to ...

“EVERY STYLE. EVERY SONG. EVERY NIGHT.” Quite a ballsy claim, isn’t it? In a world run by overzealous marketing directors and over-the-top hype, a manufacturer could be forgiven for promising an instrument that could cover all the bases. Besides, who wants to be a plain ol’ workhorse when you could be a dazzling unicorn? But I’ll be darned if Ibanez’s ATK805E isn’t the sexiest “jack of all trades” I’ve ever played. This lightweight, active 5-string doesn’t just present itself as an everyday w...

Series:   GB - George Benson
When George Benson burst on the scene in the mid ’60s with The New Boss Guitar, he ushered in an era of modern jazz guitar that combined an adventurous harmonic spirit, blinding technique, and a no-nonsense tone that has influenced countless jazzers since.

Ibanez had been selling top-quality guitars in the United States for more than a decade when the RG was introduced in the late ’80s. Its infamous “lawsuit” Gibson and Fender copies were already well regarded for their playability and tones, and the company had won high-profile converts like George Benson and Bob Weir with their original instruments. But the RG cemented the notion among the then-burgeoning metal market that Ibanez could craft a great instrument of its own design. And it would be ...

"The JD9 marks the first true-bypass entry in the company's 9 Series of pedals (along with the simultaneously released BB9). The pedal has four simple controls: Drive, Volume, Mid, and Tone.

The Volume knob controls the output level—a full counterclockwise rotation will shut off the output while a full clockwise rotation will actually give the pedal a fairly significant boost from your base volume lev...
