    The only family I can see commenting on Falbo guitars is 'Sam Falbo', so maybe it's Sam? Is that you Sam? Not that it matters massively, but the new account with supposed information is a little fishy.

    I love how Tosin said he got his guitars then Integrity (Frank) claims to have surveillance footage of them getting their property? So? They said they grabbed their property. What's your point?

    I wonder if this whole situation thing has any effect on Fishman pickups. Does Falbo still work there? Will Abasi guitars still use their pickups if they have to deal with him? Will Tosin maybe endorse another pickup brand now?

    Fishman has nothing to do with any of this and I’ll continue to endorse their products. Great company and killer product.

    Thumb-over technique high up the neck on an 8 string? =) It's already a crippled and unhealthy enough technique on a narrow 6 string neck, makes me cringe. Players need to break their bad habits.

    His playing technique looks healthy and very efficient. Except when he uses his teeth, that maybe not so much.

    There's an easy solution, just have someone stand near them and jab them in the thumb with a pushpin whenever it creeps over the top of the neck. That's what my classical guitar teacher did to me when I was a kid.

    If you take a peek at his Instagram it's pretty clear the dude also knows how to wheel. I don't think you can fit that many unfinished guitars in a R8 though :lol:

    I've got pretty big hands and have never had a problem with hanging my thumb over the neck. Classical conditioning works :lol:

    If only people were born without these stupid thumbs.
    No thumb...no need to stick it somewhere.
