There is nobody better placed than Tony Bacon to write this book. He knows his way around guitars as well as any journalist, and this book is the best history and documentation of Ibanez guitars you'll read anywhere.

Bacon covers the entire history of Ibanez guitars--an offshoot of the Hoshino company--from the beginning right through to the signature guitars of major endorsers like Steve Vai and Paul Gilbert. The dozens and dozens of remarkable photos include not only shots of the guitars themselves but various players and other related memorabilia items (album covers, sketches, et al). There is also an astonishingly complete Reference Listing, which serves as a guide to identifying Ibanez electric guitars built between the late '50s and 2012.

Bacon has done extensive research and collected an illuminating variety of photographs. If you don't yet own an Ibanez, this book will tell you everything to look out for. If you do own one, you'll come to appreciate your instrument much more after reading this.
