Pre-NAMM 2013 Ibanez Anouncement: Part 1


Held at the Aneheim Convention Centre in California, USA, the annual Namm show is one of the largest music trade shows in the world and is the place for manufacturers to announce their new products. Unfortunately the show isn't open to the general public however we're sending some of the boys from PMT to get the inside scoop on all forthcoming music gear.


The show runs from the 24th - 27th January and to keep you posted we'll be posting (and tweeting) all our latest news on our blog. We'll be filming on-the-spot videos too so don't forget to subscribe to PMTV to keep up to date! To kick things off slightly early we've got access to some of Ibanez forthcoming electric guitars, including signature models from Joe Satrianni, Steve Vai and Pat Metheny.
