    Thanks everybody for clarifying. I was really really hoping there was going to be no more funny business and this whole Falbo fiasco would eventually die down once the fire is put out. Now I’m a little weary seeing this post from ViK.

    He makes beautiful guitars, and yes I might agree with his right to his opinion and free speech; that being said Tosin is apart of a community that all but shamed him whenever Nolly publicly came out against him, ending his signature guitar deal, i’m sure you guys remember. He has to have at least thought this might raise eyebrows.

    Before we jump to conclusions we need to get the whole story of why he even is involved and in what capacity.

    Is that branded as an Abasi? Hard to see for me.

    A little off topic, but "Free Speach" is only free until you hit someone in the face, from that moment on, it's not free anymore, it's aggression and abuse and should not be tolerated... imo...

    This because of some one being entitled to have an opinion... yes, anyone can have opinions, sharing then... not so much...

    My opinion is always free. Unless you want to pay me for it, in which case I'll gladly charge.

    Generally, “freedom of speech” is merely that the government does not preclude people from stating their opinions. It does not generally mean that people should be able to state whatever opinion without facing (lawful) consequences from others who disagree or are offended (boycotts, protests, etc.).

    That's a very narrowing set of caveats.

    Wow... thats not how free speech works. Anyone is allowed to share their opinion about anything. You cant control who can share their opinions or what opinions can be shared. If you choose to not associate with someone because of their stated opinions, that is perfectly fine however.

    Weeeeell I just want a guitar and want to make sure I’m sending money to a person a respect on a basic level (Vik not being one of those people) so it’s weak but still down the middle?

    None of these are Falbo builds, except for the Tele, which we began with Frank last year.

    I don't think he is. I thought he was working with Falbo, which would mean now that Abasi is no longer working with Falbo, Vik would no longer be in the picture.

    Does that demonstrate an ongoing relationship, or just that he worked on Abasi stuff via his relationship with Falbo?

    I'm just saying, I have heard about a working relationship between Falbo and Vik, but I haven't heard of one between Vik and Tosin or Grover Jackson. It's possible I could be wrong, of course, but I'm not ready to jump to conclusions based on an instagram pic just yet.

    I like the double cut way more than the single cut shape. That being said, I’m not really a big fan of the ergo-style guitars so I’m not really the target market anyway.

    Also, wasn’t it said a few pages back that Vik was working out of Frank’s shop? Or was that just a rumour?

    Given the size of the order Abasi originally put in, Frank would need employees, maybe Vik was working for him.

    Pretty sure Frank and Vik aren't associated. Maybe Frank will chime in. I do know that double cut design isn't Frank's work, I asked him.
