    Just finished talking to our good friend Mr. Frank Falbo and he told me some news that I feel we should all know.

    Here's the thread on the SD Forums - but here's his post on there.

    Thanks a lot for your efforts and work at Seymour Duncan especially from us extended range guys - wishing you all the best in your future adventures.

    That's sad to hear. Well all the best to him, some great stuff has come out over the years and I hope it continues for Seymour Duncan and for him personally.

    Sad news indeed but I'm excited to see what Frank does in the future. I also hope that a big fan of SD they don't stop the innovation and awesome products they've been putting out!

    I always appreciated that he maintained close contact to the customers. Didn't he organise some custom pickups for ss.org
    members? And he always gave good advice, too :yesway:

    Frank has always been very very helpful. I'm interested to see where he goes next :D

    Damn that does suck. :( Wonder what Frank will be doing in the future? It was nice having someone who was on the inside posting directly on the forum. Thanks for the heads up Mesh! :yesway:

    Wow, best of luck to what he wants to do now. He has always been a likeable guy, and has always been helpful, his replacement will have big shoes to fill.

    Good luck Frank I say:yesway:

    all jokes aside, I'm curious where Frank is headed now, he's always been one I enjoy to hear news from.

    Sad news, Frank is great and he seems to be tuned in to what the average player wants. His demo videos on YouTube are always fun to watch, too.

    So he's the guy I should've asked if they'd do 7 string P-rails in the custom shop :(

    Sucks that he left, hope they keep moving forward. :yesway:

    Well you can still call up SD and talk to MJ at the custom shop and ask that.

    Too true, just would've been convenient. :lol: I'd forgotten phones possessed that ability >_>

    BUUUUUUMP!!!!

    Thanks for the kind words here, guys. I did see them awhile back, but for various reasons couldn't jump in on the discussion.

    Although it does not contain djent, here's one of the things I've been working on for the past several months. Just figured I'd share. I promise I'm working on other things that are djenty, that I will be able to reveal over the next 3-9 months. But for now, this:


    Falbo Guitars

    I tried that once was told 'no parts for them'

    Stuck at work, so can't really want your video about things (see satelite internet in the middle of nowhere = dial up :lol:

    Acoustics though, interesting (and better than anything 'djenty' could ever be). Not that I play em myself, for comfort reasons.
