Are there going to be summer models?

Not to sound insensitive. Obviously, health concerns are above all else. I was just curious if anything is coming out this summer. I'm guessing no?

I think they have already been announced via NAMM.

Simply, no. There is no summer NAMM and I remember my rep saying something about everything is just too crazy, there's nothing normal about this year.

The only minor thing I've seen so far is some different Bass colors. Like a pink version for the seafoam green EHB.

I figured there wouldn't be anything. And I don't know about Indonesia but it seems Japan is being appropriately cautious.

Re: Are there going to be summer models?

Sounds like a good year to take the lazy approach. Change up the colors a bit on a few existing models, and/or do some limited re-releases of some retired models.

That way they wouldn’t have to be as dependant on new model marketing, and could save on the R&D as well. (In theory)

Would make sense.
Keep the productions limited and a known seller.

The other concern is of course that the market may be thin too with the usual clientele not having as much disposable income.

The factories may not be working, but neither are Alot of people worldwide.
