Take your Vista along for the ride and keep it protected in a leather-tooled hard-shell case, which is included with your purchase.

The perfect complement to Luna’s premier line of High Tide ukuleles, the High Tide acoustic guitars are on track to become just as popular with sharp looks, attention to detail and high-quality features.

These guitars are crafted from exotic tropical hardwoods, and the Luna 'full moon' sticker inside the sound hole is framed by an abalone ring. Equipped with chrome open gear tuners, Fishman preamps and reliable D'Addario strings, these guitars are ready to make a splash on the big stage or on the road!

| In 1908 Matsujiro Hoshino started a bookstore that sold books and sheet music as well musical instruments. From 1921, instruments from Europe and the USA were also imported, including classical guitars from the Spanish luthier Salvador Ibanez.|
In 1929 he was succeeded by his son Yoshitaro Hoshino.
More and more instruments were imported such as mandolins from Italy and drum kits from Ludwig from Germany. Because the request of guitars could no longer be met, Yoshitaro decided to build guitars themselve.
Meanwhile, his four sons were also part of the venture and the company Hoshino Gakki was founded. A factory was built near their headquarters
for production of their own guitar line that could accommodate around 30 employees. From now on the 'Salvador Ibanez' guitar was called 'Ibanez'. The company exported many guitars to other Asian countries and in 1937
it had an output of more than 1000 guitars a month.
After the World War II, during which the factory was completely destroyed, the import of musical instruments was resumed slowly around 1950.
Just in 1962 was Jumpei Hoshino decided to build his own guitars again.
A new factory was built where now also amplifiers and electric guitars
were made. The company was named 'Tama Seisakusho' as a tribute to the wife of Yoshitaro Hoshino.
Ibanez was now the main brand of Hoshino, but they also produced
guitars for other western companies. Drum kits were also made with the brand name 'Tama'. From 1966 however, it was decided no more build guitars for other companies. This was adopted by other manufacturers,
as Fujigen Gakki or Teisco.
In 1967 the first Ibanez guitars were imported by Elger Company, USA. These were guitars with many buttons and switches and had no logo.
In the late 1960s, the guitars were provided with in 'spaghetti-style'
metal logo on the head stock.
| In 1970 they focus more on producing cheaper but comparable models of the great USA brands like Gibson, Fender and Rickenbacker. This was called the 'Pre-Lawsuit era'.|
Despite their cheaper production, the replicas of Ibanez have a high quality and are therefore a strong competitor for the USA brands.
In the 1980s own designs were introduced such as the, Performer, Musician and Iceman Models. This period is also called 'Golden Years of Ibanez'. Many of the guitars from that period are popular objects for collectors.
For over 50 years the guitar building company Fujigen has been a partner of Hoshino, they built the Ibanez electric guitars.
Ibanez guitars have also been produced in South Korea since the early 1990s. The EX series produced there appeared in 1991.
EX = 'Experimental'. Because the quality of the Korean guitars is just as good as the Japanese, they made since 1994 also other Ibanez models here. These days Ibanez guitars also made in China.
Just like 100 years ago, Hoshino Gakki still has its headquarters in Nagoya. The research and development department is also located here.
From the first successful copies of their own models from the 1970s and 1980s to today, Ibanez has been a solid and indispensable big name in the music industry.
