Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Whenever I say Ibanez a Mariachi group pops out of nowhere and plays for a few minutes.

Wouldn't it be Eye-Bye-Nez? Anyway, they wouldn't be gringos. Mexicans call them grinos, not the Japanese.. Or would it be Eye-Bay-Nez?

It's a last name in Spanish and it's commonly mispronounced in English

It's a Japanese company. So it would be pronounced Eye-Bah-Nez. I can see where the confusion would come from, seeing as how it's also the Spanish Ibáñez...
Quote by bigredbeast
how much is 15,000 PHP? I didn't know they played guitar in the Phillipines. I thought they played ukelele or something.


Because, of course, we're too far away from places with guitars and all that stuff so we play ukelele...

Good, that happens to me all the time. People think it's "San-Chehz" when it's "Sahn-Chus."

Anyway, doesn't matter. People pronounce Mexico wrong all the time.

Why are there accent marks? Isn't Ibanez Japanese?

They were named after the luthier Salvdor Ibáñez

Well, the brand name isn't accent marked, so I'd go with eye-bah-nez.

silly-poo. Japaneses would be "i (like 'it')-ba(like 'buck')-nez

and it is a japanese company, yes, but it's called 'eye-bah-nez' like everyone says. I've heard ibanez signature artists discuss ibanez on videos, I've heard guitar stores and guitar players and guitar teachers and sex addicts pronounce it like that, never anything else.

nuts on you.

Who really cares, people everyone knows what you mean, and you'd look like a dick if you pronounced it properly.

But isn't i pronounced like an e in japanese?

Edit: Screw it, I might just call it e-banez for fun. But yeahh I'm pretty sure it's just Ibanez.

The company had little presence in the Western world until the mid-1960s. The Ibanez name dates back to 1929 when Hoshino Gakki started importing Salvador Ibanez acoustic guitars into Japan from the famous Spanish luthier Salvador Ibáñez (1854 - 1920), but when the Spanish workshop was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War (1936 - 1939) and the original guitars became unavailable (and very much sought after because of their excellent quality), Hoshino Gakki bought the Ibanez brand name rights and started making Spanish and acoustic guitars on their own, first as "Ibanez Salvador", and later as "Ibanez"


That is what Wikipedia says on the matter, therefore, I would say it is pronounced however Salvador Ibáñez is pronounced.

Your the idiot seeing as how it was named after a Spanish person, and just because every one pronounces it like that doesn't make it right.

yes it does, the only people who're pronouncing it otherwise are people who want to be contrary.

KON ('con'nect)
NI ('ni'ck)
CHI ('chi'ck)
WA (wa?)

obviously it isn't the EXACT noise of hit, or bit, or it, but it is that same tpe of noise, often extended out a bit or curved a little towards the 'e' like "cheat" sound

Nope, i was simply telling you that you should use the search bar before making threads.
As this thread has already been done a few times.
#34
then again, arguments aside, the TS DID make a point of naming this thread "how do YOU pronounce ibanez?" so i guess this thread probabl shouldn;t have become a right-wrong one. sorry.

the bullseye is the point, you are the shooter


sorry, but he was talking about the japanese language, not necessarily, and therefore not, about the actual pronunciation.

Bullseye, dudley!!!

My friend's dad got one, and he goes "my dad just got a guitar- it's an eye-buh-neigh"

I was like... lol wut? And pulled a pear out of my pocket to signify this.
