IBANEZ GUITARS expands its 7 and 8 string line


The guitar builder known as “The First In Seven, The Leader In Eight” shows no sign of slowing as 2013 adds even more weapons to the 7 and 8-string armory. If there’s a tip to the Ibanez 8-string spear for ’13, it would have to be the new Tosin Abasi Signature Model.
