    Looks like Abasi brought a bunch of new guitars to NAMM. I've spotted a green one, a red one and a white one. Another one might be purple, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    It's strange that the order form has no options, just a box to write what you want...

    I’m just outside your room, and I’ll kill you if you don’t post pics. You have 24 hours to comply.

    Paul Gilbert has started stressing thumb-over technique in his teaching.

    Currently have 4 handmade customs and previously had another 3, can confirm they all have plenty more aesthetic flaws than my sub-$1000 production instruments where I can hardly find anything. That said, I love all my customs dearly.

    He credits his vibrato and bends to thumb over technique which is why he doesn't like 7 strings nor most 7 string players vibrato. If it's ok for gilbert, malmsteen, Vai and countless other amazing guitarists than I don't feel too guilty about doing it. Maybe if you don't bend and just play rhythm/tapping stuff then you would be strict about it thumb position.

    Interesting to see more solid color painted bodies and that sort of mass produced aesthetic, but not at all surprising considering all that has happened recently. I hadn't even considered he might show up with anything that didn't involve at least 6 woods, these aren't bad at all though. I'm a natural finish kinda guy, but one of these with the right paint code and a few personal touches would look as close as makes no difference like a Lamborghini. I'm already thinking Cyan :metal:

    And, a tele model. Go 'head then!

    if they can do road flare red or colorshifting paint with a maple fretboard, my wallet would be in serious trouble

    Everybody's oogling at that gold one, but I'm scoping out the one right next to it. Is that a swirl? Is that a black and purple swirl? :yum:

    They might just be ones half built last year that got painted over.

    Kinda tempted to get one of the half-built ones that seem to have flooded the Tokyo market. $5500s a bit ridiculous though, especially given what we know about the situation of their construction. Anyone reading this with the power can hook me up with a discount?

    That Tele style one definitely is one Frank was working on. Would not be surprised if the rest are repainted Falbo's as well, they look like the previous style bevel.
