Had a buddy send this to me and thought I'd pass it along.

Appears to be a European (only) release.

Called my local dealer and they couldn't get it.

Believe it's also a limited edition.

Almost looks like a re-issue of the 81/82 DT400CS.

Put your orders in but it's not shipping until June.

700 euro w/gig bag.

Don't give up hope, the new artist series was US only but now it is also being released in Europe with this DT and IC.

Hey, Phil -

Shane told me they're available in Australia, too.

Maybe the new price sheets haven't made it to my local retailer yet.

Who knows? Maybe they will be available in the states.

Had someone email me and tell me they had contacted "Ibanez" and were told the DT-520 would be available in the US around mid-August.

Have no clue whether that info is correct.

If their release schedule is any indication, they're about a month late delivering to Europe so mid-August may become mid-September for delivery to the US.

We will be releasing the DT520 in the US for August!

As of right now, there is no expectation of delay and you should see them on the website sometime in August when they are coming in!

Thanks, Bill. Wish I had known they were eventually going to be released in the US.

I realize it's a marketing decision but I'm kind of surprised there wasn't any sort of "Coming to the US in late Summer" campaign when they were released in Japan/Australia.

The Destroyers just don't seem to get the love that the other models do.

In addition to all of the DT-420FM samples that were created, it appears there was also a black DT-520 sample made.

Still available: DT-520BK

Call your local Ibanez dealer for a price.

I've seen them range from about $650 up to about $800 USD.

Yes, made in China.
