Ibanez Custom

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by slipknot229, May 31, 2001.


  1. Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone had ANY information what-so-ever as to how to contact ibanez regarding a custom guitar/bass. Plus, any information on the approximate price range would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    To my knowledge, Ibanez dosen't make custom built instruments. :( Sorry. Some of their guitars & basses might say "Custom" or "Custom Made" but they don't one off any of their products.

    A left handed bassist I know had one custom made by Ibanez. At least thats what he said. Anyway, try writing them at:

    Ibanez Artist Relations
    7231 Hinds Ave.
    N. Hollywood, CA 91605 U.S.A.

    or

    Ibanez Sales and Service
    Box 886
    Bensalem, PA 19020

    or e-mail them at contact@ibanez.com

    Good luck getting them to respond though.

    They sure do make them...USA versions of them. You're talking a minimum $3000, pretty much. I've played a USA custom 6 string...it was pretty good, but I could've gotten twice the bass for half the cost.

    I wouldn't advise this, at all. What exactly are you looking for?
