    I was extremely close to buying one when preorders started, really glad I didn't. I can't blame anyone for ordering one though. This whole thing was pretty unexpected, especially when someone has such a big reputation.

    Well, we still didn't hear the last word from them so there's always a glimpse of hope I guess.

    A friend of mine went to their clinic at Axe Palace and got to play the yellow/gold looking Abasi guitar. He said there were some weird finish flaws on the guitar and the nut was kind of jank, along with a decent gap in the neck joint...so even Tosin is playing his own signature guitar with finish issues?

    prob one of those rushed up jobs guitars for NAMM. I remember seeing them there all with different tunners and different backplates routings

    just beacue its not 100% purrrrrfect, doesnt mean it cant be played "but but but I has THIS little thing HEEEERREEEEEE!!!! AAAHHGG..." some people are far too picky.

    and yes, I know this is NOT the guitar he should be showing off around, but, maybe its the only guitar he has to show around

    I was in the same boat. I wanted to pre-order one when they opened it up but I wasn't sure. It was down to the Abasi or a Kiesel and I went Kiesel . So glad I did too.

    Special wood top: Resin stabilized - customer provided
    (I bought the top from California Woods. It is a master grade resin stabilized buckeye burl top)

    white limba body

    Custom shop finish: trans Aqua on back/bevel

    Chambered body

    5 piece walnut/purpleheart neck

    Thinner Neck profile

    Tung oil back of the neck

    Match headstock from billet

    Zebrawood fretboard

    No top inlays

    Stainless steel jumbo frets

    Black hardware

    Black logo

    Once I actually get it, I'll do a NGD post. I ordered the guitar, then moved. It was of course finished when I was in transition so I had to have it re-directed until I got settled. I should have it in my hands in around a week.

    I'm not impressed by this development until I see the size and thickness of your glasses.
