Welcome to the Ibanez Wiki
The #1 source for information about Ibanez guitars!
To see a list of current Ibanez models check out the current year portal.
For an overview of all Ibanez guitars, try the Guitar models portal.
As a wiki, all content on this site is generated by users. If you have something to add to the site, please feel free to do so. The site currently focuses on solid body electric guitars sold by Ibanez since 1986. The goal is to eventually expand the scope to include all things Ibanez (hollow body guitars, electric basses, acoustic instruments, amps and electronics, etc.), so if you're interested in helping the site grow, we welcome your assistance. The Project portal is a great place to get started. If you have a question, try the FAQ or submit your own question here. If you want to interact with others in the community, check out the forum.
I've just finished updating the wiki with the initial models for the new product year. So far we have documented 201 models for 2018 from the Ibanez website and the European catalog which has been released.
I would expect that we'll see a couple more new things from the NAMM show which opens this Thursday. We'll update the wiki as soon as possible when anything new is announced.

Until now there has not been any easy way to browse the wiki in any meaningful way. To address that shortcoming we've recently completed the first phase of the Portal implementation. Portals are meant to provide a way to navigate the wiki.
The first phase includes the creation of yearly Portals for each year back to 1987. Check out the 2017 Portal to get an idea of what this is all about. This page provides a list (including images) of all of the current models with links to the individual model articles.
The next step involves crafting portals for each guitar series. This remains a work in pro…Read more >
It's been a few weeks since Ibanez's new 2017 lineup made its debut at the NAMM show. As of this morning I finished the task of adding all the new models and updating all of the models carried over from previous years. So the wiki should now contain all known current Ibanez solid body guitar models.
The easiest way (for now) to see all the 2017 models in one place is to check out Category:2017 models. In the near future I hope to have a 2017 portal created which will be similar to this one for 2014.
As of now I've seen only the USA and European 2017 catalogs. We've also got the 2017 USA new pro…Read more >
If you've been following this blog, you're probably aware of the ongoing effort to bring this wiki back to life and make it into the Internet's most definitive resource for information about Ibanez guitars. This effort was undertaken this spring when I happened upon the wiki and realized what a great resource it is. Unfortunately, the wiki's founder had been inactive for the previous five years and the site was not being actively updated.
Our first step was to add articles for all of the models produced since 2011. This first stage was completed in mid-June.
We then re-focused our efforts on fi…Read more >
I noticed recently that its been a couple of months since I've posted on the ongoing effort to jumpstart this wiki and make it THE comprehensive online source for Ibanez information.
As of today every catalog model back to 2002 has been added to the wiki. That means we've now got 15 years of comprehensive coverage of Ibanez solid body guitars. With that, we're (chronologically) half way to our stated goal of covering the period from 1987 (when the first JEMs and the original RG550 were introduced) through present.
Currently this wiki contains 1,294 guitar model articles, which is an increase of over…Read more >
