SOMEWHERE…
If you're going to make it, you've got to start somewhere, right? That “somewhere” is the theme of this Ibanez catalog, as Ibanez artists from all over give us a look at where they got started doing the best job in the world—playing music. Of course, the best job in the world hardly ever starts with the best job. For some, it's a talent show in the school auditorium. For others, the corner dive. Often you get paid next to nothing. More often nothing at all. Some first gigs are downright scary or embarrassing. Of course, they're the ones that are the most fun to tell about later. A whole lot later. No matter what, it's worth it. Because there really is nothing else in the world like playing guitar or bass. Whether it's something you do full-time. Or something you do to get to escape what you do full-time. We've also been looking back at where we started. To create our 2004 line-up, we've been revisiting our deep roots in rock and jazz guitars. The Ibanez Destroyer is back. The Iceman bass is back. We're building on our considerable heritage in making jazz guitars with the largest selection of full- and semi-acoustic guitars in our history. We've got reissues of our famous ’80s effects, the TS808 Tube Screamer, the FL9 Flanger, and CS9 Stereo Chorus. But not everything is a bow to where we've been. Our amp line, which now includes 100 watt heads and bass amps, was inspired strictly by where players are NOW and where they're headed tomorrow. And why have we done this? So somewhere in these pages you'll find what you need to play. Whether it's for playing in your living room or on the other side of the world. It's doesn't really matter where. As long as it's somewhere you can play.

Ibanez Prestige guitars and basses are crafted in Japan of premium woods by our most experienced luthiers using the perfect blend of New World technology and Old World craftsmanship. Identifiable in this catalog by the Prestige logo, Prestige models feature necks with the comfortable, rounded feel previously found only in vintage instruments broken in by years of dedicated playing. Prestige instruments also feature high-end electronics and precision-crafted deluxe appointments.

y first gig was when I was three years old in my living room in front of my family with a tennis racket singing ‘You Ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog.’ My first real gig was at my 8th grade school talent show playing the Sam Kinison version of ‘Wild Thing.’ Today my favorite place to play is in my living room.”

“ y first gig was in somebody's basement in Ludlow, Massachusetts, around '84 or '85. I remember somebody spilled a beer all over my old Tube Screamer and ruined it. My first real gig was at a bar called Catinas with a band named Tera Shock. For favorite venues, Houses of Blues is the first place that comes to mind, but thinking about it, I'd have to say it's a place back home called the Hippodrome. It's a great old theater.” -Mike Mushok

“ ands down, my favorite venue is the House of Blues in New Orleans. It's kind of our home crowd, so we sell it out every time. Funny story—one night we were playing this rather small club. The stage, which was nothing more than a big drum riser, had a big steel support beam right through the middle. About half-way through the set, I decided I was going to pole dance, so I swung my guitar around my back, grabbed the pole, threw one leg around and proceeded to slide down. That was when I lost my grip, fell backwards and busted my a--. Fortunately, I didn't land on my guitar and was able to finish the rest of the set.”

“ here’s a lot of responsibility that goes along with having a signature guitar. My goal was to transcend my own name. Obviously it had to be good for me to play, but it also had to be good for other players. The guitar had to be good looking, very playable, very friendly. We achieved that. The JEM is the guitar for me, a warm place to be. Any other guitar seems strange; it just doesn’t have the vibe. Anywhere in the world I can go into a music store, take a JEM off the wall, and it’s my guitar, my voice.” - Steve Vai in Ibanez. The Untold Story

T

“ ’ve always felt that the tone you get comes from your skin touching the fretboard, not just strings on frets. I wanted a guitar with a modern sound, but with a vintage feel, with smaller frets and more radius on the fingerboard. It had to be subtle enough to catch nuances, fast and easy to play, and you had to be able to wear it.” - Joe Satriani, describing the genesis of the JS in Ibanez. The Untold Story.

I

“ hen I pick up any other brand of guitar, I have to think of so many things… the volume knob is in the wrong place; the frets are too small; there are too many controls; the balance isn’t right; the body shape poke me in the ribs. These are things I don’t have to worry about with my Ibanez.” - Paul Gilbert in Ibanez. The Untold Story

he GB10’s smaller body doesn’t have a lot of resonance, but it has a lot of articulation. The notes don’t melt together like on softer guitars. It maintains the tone while articulating each note. No other guitar gets that sound. It’s a guitar that really shows off chops—especially for today’s young players who have all the chops!” - George Benson from Ibanez.The Untold Story. “

When Ibanez wanted to reintroduce

my original AS200 guitar with the original specs they had to fly me to the Ibanez R&D facility in L.A., where detailed measurements were taken of every conceivable dimension. This became the basis for the JSM John Scofield Model introduced in 2001, which reproduced the original guitar plus added some improvements such as a side-mounted jack.” - John Scofield from Ibanez. The Untold Story.

“ started coming to Japan in the late 70's. I was very flattered when some representatives of Ibanez came to one of our concerts and showed me some of their guitars. At that time, I had never even met someone from a guitar manufacturing company, let alone had them be really nice to me and offer to build me an instrument. It took some time, several prototypes and perseverance from all corners, but the final results are excellent - I love playing all of the various Ibanez PM models and am quite proud to be associated with them.” - Pat Metheny from Ibanez.

ur first real gig was at a bar in Buffalo called Broadway Joe's. We opened for a friend’s band called Monkey Wrench, and I feel eternally grateful to them for giving us that opportunity. That is why we still try to give up-and-coming bands a break whenever we can.” - Rob Derhak

F irst gig? Do you mean the first time I got
some money for playing bass? Well, actually, it was outside of a Church’s Chicken in Fairfield, California where I grew up. I was in my first high school band; the restaurant was across the street. There was a guy in a BIG chicken suit standing next to us when we played, and ALL of our friends were walking by the place after school and laughing at us! What an intro to the music biz!”

We rocked it out, playing covers of Elton John, Boston, and Zep. My favorite places to play are the House of Blues in Chicago, the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, and the Trocadero in Philadelphia.

SIGNA TURE
basses

My sound came about so I could be heard through
all the low end from the7-string guitars. A lot of the sound comes from the bass itself, the active pickups. Another part of my sound is that I just dump all the mids; I really don’t like midrange.

I t took about two years to come out
with my signature model. I was impressed that Ibanez didn’t sell the bass right away. They made it the way I wanted first. In the end, my bass says what I want it to say. It has its own sounds, but it’s also transparent; you get sounds out of your hands. When you can dial in an instrument to this level of performance, it’s amazing.”
- Gary Willis in Ibanez. The Untold Story.

My 5-string represents five long
years of research and development. It’s truly a work of art. One of the best 5-string basses Ibanez has ever made—and that says something! I designed it so I could get a wide and different range of sounds with ease, both live and in the studio. It’s got a great dynamic and great fundamentals. I think players will find it very easy, very useful and very, very fun to play— because we nailed it.” - Doug Wimbish

“ I’ve played all kinds of basses. I’ve got other companies that want me to endorse, but I don’t like any other basses. I’m not like some people who play an instrument because of a contract. I’m playing it because I love it. The K5 is a masterpiece.” - Fieldy in Ibanez. The Untold Story.

k5 basics
• Powerful ADX active pickups and the original Vari-Mid EQ sweepable midrange allow you to dial in or dial out any kind of bass sound (or as Fieldy says, “Take the midrange and turn that $%#@$ off”). • Body of padauk and mahogany provides the tremendous low-end and sustain needed for Korn's brand of heavy rock.

• The wide range of tones needed by the first call N.Y. session artist who's played with everyone from Living Colour to the Rolling Stones. • 5 pc maple/bubinga neck with quarter -sawn bubinga fret board offers superior strength, tone and response. • Neck-thru body with ash wings allows unlimited upper fret access. • Hipshot® licensed tuners provide tuning stability combined with lighter weight for better neck/body balance. • 2-band EQ customized for Doug Wimbish offers wide and rapid tone adjustments. • EMG® 35P4 and 35J4/40J active pickups.

• Gary Willis is the unchallenged name in 5-string fretless playing and 5-string fretless basses. • New GWB35BKF model offers the core features of the Gary's original GWB1 Prestige Signature model at one-half the price. • Bartolini NTBT 2-band EQ with bypass switch (active/passive) on the GWB1 matches any kind of amplification. • GWB1 lightweight swamp ash body provides an extremely open sound. • Curved Bartolini Willis pickup provides separate coils for precise string balance. • Detachable ramp/finger finger-rest designed by Gary Willis refines right hand technique and prevents players from digging into the strings (“the worst thing you can do on a fretless”). • Sure Grip tuning knobs inspired by Gary Willis allow fast restringing and precise fine tuning even during the heat of a gig.

AMPLIFIERS
guitar and bass amps
There are already plenty of amps dedicated to the thrilling sounds of yesteryear. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) But Ibanez amps are spec’d and voiced for today's tones. The fact that Ibanez amps pump out the right tones for the times has received critical acclaim from Guitar World, Guitar One and Guitar Player magazines. And it's definitely why the guitar and bass playing public has made Ibanez the fastest growing new line of amplification. For 2004, we’re expanding the newest name in amplifiers with our first 100 watt bass amp and bass extension cabinet.

EFFECTS
ts808. the original tube screamer .
It’s back—the incomparable overdrive pedal that’s been described as “the Holy Grail of Tube screamers.” Our 2004 TS808 reissue features the same famous standout square footswitch of the original and the even more famous warm tones of the JRC4558 chip used in most of the original TS808's. Ignore any over-the-counter lookalikes. If your tone is suffering from a lack of real warmth, the TS808 is the real, non-generic prescription.

TB100H Tone Blaster • 100 watt @ 8ohms • 120 watt @ 4ohms • Two footswitchable discrete channels (clean and crunch) w/independent active 3-band EQ and level controls • Footswitchable mid-shift on the overdrive channel • "Crunch" circuit available on the clean channel • Reverb with independent level controls on the clean and overdrive channels • Effects loop • Headphone jack • Footswitch jacks • Four button metal footswitch TB412A Tone Blaster • Angled front speaker cabinet • 4-12" "POWER JAM" speakers • Switchable mono/stereo
Tone Blaster • Straight front speaker cabinet • 4 12" "POWER JAM" speakers • Switchable mono/stereo

nine series
When it comes to compact effects, nine is the magic number. By popular demand (and the understandably escalating prices of the originals), we're reissuing two of the most popular Ibanez 9-Series effects, the FL9 Flanger and CS9 chorus. If you missed out on getting one of these classics the first time around, now is the time. Both our TS9 Tube screamer reissue and TS9DX Turbo Tube screamer feature the TA75558 chip used in most of the original TS9's with the TS9DX adding three settings for increased low-end crunch.

EDGE-PRO/EDGE-PRO II
bridges
In the last 20 years , no other guitar maker has done as much to advance the art and science of the tremolo. The Edge-PRO and Edge-PRO II bridges represent another huge step in the evolution of the locking trem.

ZR “ZERO RESIST ANCE”
tremolo
The ZR tremolo may be the most significant advance in locking tremolos since the first locking tremolo. Most floating tremolos use a knife-edge system, but the ZR tremolo uses a ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free smooth action.

edge-pro

edge-pro II

ZR Built-In Intonation Adjustment Tool Just unscrew the built-in intonation adjustment tool from the base and screw it into the bottom of each saddle for quick adjustments.

Sliding String Holder One of the biggest complaints about the ordinary locking tremolo was string holder blocks getting lost during string changes. The EDGE-PRO's and EDGE-PRO II's SLIDING STRING HOLDERS are actually part of the bridge and will not drop from the saddle units.

Easy String Changes There's no need to cut off the ball of your strings when changing strings on the EDGE-PRO or EDGE-PRO II.

ZERO POINT System This unique system stabilizes the bridge and insures tuning stability by consistently returning the tremolo to the center point (or zero point). In addition to the usual tremolo springs, the ZERO POINT system features two additional springs which insure the bridge’s return to the center point.

Gravy
mushroomhead

Intonation Stabilty When Using Fine Tuners Unlike older style locking tremolos, the EDGE-PRO and EDGE-PRO II feature a STATIONARY STRING SUPPORT SYSTEM that prevents intonation changes during fine tuner adjustments.

Bronson
mushroomhead Offset Saddle Locking Bolt The locking bolt is offset from the center of the saddle, which allows easy access to the bolt without loosening the strings. Arm Torque Adjuster The arm torque is easily adjusted by tightening or loosening the screw located in the arm holder.

Sound Metal Chip The EDGE-PRO features a unique SOUND METAL CHIP on each saddle. This helps increase sustain right at the most critical area, the intonation point.

Arm Height and Torque Adjustment The EDGE-PRO II features two screws in the arm pocket which allow easy adjustment of the arm height and torque.

Ball Bearing Pivot Smoother than smooth. The ZR tremolo's ball bearing pivot system allows ultra-smooth arm control.The pivot's precise movement virtually guarantees tuning stability.

Easy Spring Adjustment Access Spring tension can be easily adjusted without removing the back plate. (S470/S470DX/S470DXQM)
