Rock of Ages: Vintage Ibanez Guitar Catalog Scans

I recently came across this unnamed site which hosts a collection of scanned Ibanez Guitar catalogs from 1971 to 2005. No surprise, the ones from the 80s--with its big haired musicians and neon colored guitars--were the sweet spots that really caught my eye. You'll have to forgive the fact that with the exception of Joe Satriani, George Benson, Steve Vai and Steve Lukather, I have no idea who most of these musicians are without relying on Google. I wasn't into the big hair bands or their members, but I love how these sample pages just scream 80s. The era also seemed to usher in musicians to help endorse the guitars, where previous catalogs didn't feature many personalities.
