Ibanez - a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan; however, the company didn't get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the "Ibanez Salvador" name, which was later shortened to "Ibanez." Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effect pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.

Something new

I'v not played bass before but thought I might like to give it a try so was looking for a nice bass at a good price and Sweetwaters delivered. It looks great and sounds good to a novice like me.
