Have we been mispronouncing Ibanez?


Recommended Posts

^^^ different word. Notice the squiggle over the N. Ñ is pronounced differently than N. That also applies to the aforementioned Fox News anchor Ibañez. Ee-BAH-nyaaz. 
 

Ibañez ≠ Ibanez

I don't know but a lot of people mispronounce tremolo, it's pronounced vi-brah-toe.

Here - I found it: shit /SHit/ VULGAR SLANG noun 1. feces. 2. a contemptible or worthless person. verb 1. expel feces from the body.

Dumbass.

The problem was, I was a young hick in a vacuum of information...

I thought the Gibson Les Paul was pronounced "Lay Paul"

Were you a a Cajun hick?

When someone is squiggling over me I pronounce everything differently.

No, a well-read hick, with knowledge sufficient (as well as stature, insufficient) to ensure I was the last-picked for any P.E. team!

I looked for another one a few years ago but prices were stupid. They weren't that good.

I had an Aria Pro II LPC lawsuit in cherry. Wish I still had it 'cause prices are stupid.

Maybe the company dropped it to reduce the inlay cost.

Referring back to the statements that mid 70's cheap guitars were shit, I never held an Ibanez then or for the next 6 years or so... But I DO remember those troll-built POS called Hondo. The early Ibenhads HAD to be better than those. Or were they really that bad?

I also remember the atrocious Teisco's, Kingstons, etc.. "Steel Reinforced Neck", meaning no truss rods... I guess neck relief must have been for pussys. 😂

I think many put all the 70s/80s Gibson and Fender look-alikes in the same basket.  The shit brands then were mainly made in Korea.  The MIJ brands were far better builds using quality materials.  Forty years later those MIJ guitars are enjoying a resurgence while Gibson and Fender guitars from that era are generally scoffed at.

I owned several Aria Pro II guitars in the late 70s thru early ‘80s. I wish I had a couple of them back.
