Salvador Ibáñez y Albiñana was a Spanish luthier who started making guitars in 1865. In 1910 he changed the business name to Salvador Ibáñez é Hijos when he was joined by his two sons Vicente  and Salvador. The business was hit by the great depression in 1929 and in 1931 Telesforo Julve took over Salvador Ibanez e Hijos and continued to make guitars under this brand name until at least 1946.

Hoshino in Japan also used the Ibanez brand and even labelled some Japanese made classical guitars as "Ibanez Salvador " - but these were not made by the Spanish company or licensed by them. It is likely that Hoshino chose this brand name due to the popularity of Spanish made guitars in Spain at the time. Circa 2018 made in China "Salvador Ibanez" classical guitars are also available
