Ikeda IT407 new production?

I understand that there is current production Ikeda IT407s. I had previously thought this was either a used or NOS product.

Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on the new ones? I see various sale adds saying "new" MSRP is $4500, but they are selling older versions (not the shiny new ones, but the matt older ones).

Expensive arm, but new production, as long as it's not compromised in quality, sounds interesting. Given that the Ikeda "story" seems unlcear out there (ie still producing, not producing) I do worry about ongoing support.

Any info or thoughts are appreciated, private or public. Cheers
