When does Ibanez release color changes for new year?

Just curious when does Ibanez announce any changes/additions etc to models for the next model year generally.

Hoping they add some different colors to the RG655 Prestige - as other than Firestorm Orange I'm not wild about the blue or black. Hoping for other options.

Thanks!

p.s. - still looking for a 1987 RG550 in Heather Pearl in case anyone was wondering if I've had any luck yet from my other thread.

Re: When does Ibanez release color changes for new year?

New models come out in winter and summer NAMM; January and July respectively. Sometimes there will be special production models for a store exclusive, like a certain color that can only be found at Guitar Center or Sam Ash but those lately have focused on lower-end models rather than Prestiges.
I wonder if the Premiums come back in force if they'll ever do a special run store exclusive.
Also, I know Ibanez is against doing a public custom shop but I've always wondered why they wouldn't simply offer a custom paint shop. Someone here is doing a custom Sonic Blue Jem build and I'm imagining how awesome that would be as and RG655.
Just a thought...

Thanks Mike. I was wondering because I saw on American Musical Supply's website they have dropdowns for the RG655 in "Candy Apple" and "White" with estimated arrival dates of 10/8 - so I was sort of hoping for some official news from Ibanez with pics of those "new" colors (if it's even true).

Candy Apple Red or White would be KILLER on an RG655!

another cool finish alternative that suits for the 655 is emerald green.

Lazer blue That would look so nice with the black pickguard and rosewood fingerboard.

What about that orange color from like 88? Not the one that was on the Genesis, another rare one?

New colors are up at American Musical.
Looks GREAT in CA and White!

Can't post pics though as jemsite kills the domain name.

I saw that too. I wish they'd have a white pickguard option though.
