Re: Ibanez 2020 Catalog + NAMM
It's going to be a huge announcement, not minor additions or changes to existing guitars. All I've been able to get out of the Ibanez people is that it's big and they won't say any more.
My guess is an Ibanez dedicated guitar factory in Japan. This would have a huge, and hopefully positive, impact on what they would be able to produce in Japan which includes guitars that do not yet exist. While this may sound silly, Ibanez has never really had a "home" as far as I am aware. A building with their name on it because that is where they build their guitars has value, like a "home" has value.
It could also be price increases across the board...
