    I like how it's been 5 hours since we got any more info other than the sign up page and rumors, and people are already starting with the "Damn, I really hope they make a 7 string version of this in a totally different color with no bevels and different hardware!"

    "It’s evolved into a different instrument than Tosin’s earlier prototypes, and it offers even more options," Falbo added. "In this case, it’s six-string, seven-string, eight-string, multi-scale or straight—there are different color options and different wood options. There will be some set models, but we'll have the ability to add custom features if customers want them.”

    I mean, technically that is cheaper than the TAM100. If I remember correctly, the MAP on those was $3,999.99.

    It's technically the correct. The best kind of correct!

    I'm just excited about having a guitar made primarily in an 8 string, and then scaled to 6s and 7s, rather than the other way around. I hope to be able to get one out of the gates, but it might take a little saving on my part. And I still want to get an idea of what people were talking about wrt the narrower string spacing. Between this and Joe B.'s Dark Matter guitars, those of us who are into non-traditional shapes are in business!

    Well this seems like it could be a better option compared to whatever Ibanez would have put out under Tosin's name. Maybe I'll pick one up in a couple years if their reputation holds up.

    I wonder if these would be like "production" build/runs. Or you could choose the finish/specs like standard/multisclae, pickups, finish, number of strings, woods

    like a semi-custom shop, Kiesel/Aristides kinda thing

    I wonder if Tosin would ever put in a tremolo for the model! Man, that would be sick.

    I’d doubt it, as it’s not his style. But I’d love to see something with an 8 string Floyd (or some other fulcrum style double locking option) on it. Currently only Agiles and Hellraisers are an option.

    Made in CA, profit margins are going to be very tough. A lot of businesses are leaving CA for this reason.

    Someone at Ibanez Australia must have missed the memo, they just rep'ed him on their Instagram.

    I just prefer to play it safe when it comes to guitars. I have bought 2 in the last 7 years (new one is getting NGD this weekend). I just tend to sit on new guitars/amps etc for a while before I make a move on them.

    That being said, I am familiar with your acoustic guitars and they are amazing instruments, I do not doubt that Abasi Guitars will also be amazing.

    -Edited to not sound like a d*ck.

    Frank is one of the best in the business, just a brilliant guy all around, and one of the nicest people I'm happy to call a friend. I've got complete faith in him with this.
