I have been playing, collecting, repairing and analyzing vintage Ibanez (and other MIJ guitars) for over 30 years, and I am often asked this question.
Hoshino owns no manufacturing facilities beyond a small custom shop in California.
All of its guitars are built by various manufacturers around the world.
What I will do is offer up a rudimentary form of help, in terms of how to properly pronounce commonly mispronounced words that are bound to show up in your daily life.
These tips will not seal the deal in a job interview or on a date (I can especially vouch for the “date” scenario) but if pronunciation continues to be a potential chink in your armor, your problems will soon be solved. the ten most important words you should learn to pronounce, if you would like to appear reasonably knowledgeable about your own language.
Like most of the words on this list, “nuclear” is spelled EXACTLY AS IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRONOUNCED and yet, people continue to screw it up worse than the War in Iraq… Overlooking the fact that many people also seem to have precisely no idea as to the latter word’s true definition (I’ve had several conversations where people bizarrely substitute “prerogative” for words like “agenda”), this is another problem that can be attributed to ignorance in the arena of “Sound It Out, You Lummox.” The ‘R’ comes before the ‘E’ in both of these words. Yes, “utmost” is an adjective synonymous with “greatest” (a term that immediately calls to mind some tangible Mount Olympus-type of vertical hierarchy and the word “upper”) but that second letter? educated in your excruciating political debates as we approach November 3.
However, I have heard three different people – in the world of talk radio, no less – pronounce it inaccurately in the last few months. it’s like the mechanism that allows people to speak in an educated fashion went awry (see what I did there? All right, yes, I cheated a little bit here (for posterity’s sake, I should note that a phrase and a word are not the same thing) but this is still a very popular pronunciation mistake and one that I really feel must be addressed in a public forum.This may have been more helpful before the media blitz that was the Summer Olympics but it is a very valuable lesson to have for the future. Yes, a three-for-one deal, but only because this one is dually very common and very simple to fix. Also: the yuppie kids will I’m going to try to get through this one without a President Bush joke.It applies to “athlete” and any derivative (biathlon, triathlon, decathlon, etc.) and, honestly, I’m sad that I even have to point this out: there is no vowel between the ‘H’ and the ‘L’ in any of these words. For some reason, we of the English tongue have an obsession with changing any ‘S’ to an ‘X’, if it follows an ‘E’ sound; call it the Exxon Indoctrination. All right, so, despite the fact that it’s 2008, this is a word with which we’re somehow still struggling. In a bizarre twist, people actually became so certain of this word’s meaning that they alter its pronunciation to reflect that definition.That company owns the Ibanez and TAMA brands (as well as some other minor brands).They are based in Japan, but also have a US subsidiary, Hoshino USA, headquartered in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.
