    Man, that CF models is cool! Not so much because of the CF, but I love the binding on it. That is one guitar that looks cool with binding. Hopefully they do a bunch like that. Otherwise I'm gonna have to break out the Sharpie when I get one. :lol:

    Ooo I'd be very interested in getting a WMI 7 string. Tosin, these is starting to look fantastic! Love the binding on the carbon fiber topped one.

    Damn a WMI Abasi 7 or 8 is definitely on my radar. That's a killer direction to take the brand in. Interested in the price range, but if it's sup 17 - 1800 for an 8 string I'd love to get in on one.

    Assuming this ever works out and gets to Europe a few years later, the blue gradient thing with 7 strings would be an option. Let's wait for 2022...

    Very nice arsenal Tosin shows here !
    He looks proud and enthousiast, I think he deserves it, the result after years of bad thoughts I could read here and there, looks fantastic
    Congratulations Mr Abasi ! :)

    I literally "whoooof!"ed out lout when he turned that CF over into its back. Goddamn it looks beautiful. And that blue fade swamp ash one has got me seriously tempted.

    The roller coaster ride of emotions of this thread! Excited to see these come out, and hoping for everyone who wants one that this keeps moving in the right direction, but the latest builds are looking absolutely awesome.

    My jaw fucking DROPPED when he showed that carbon fiber top. It's fucking holographic it's absolutely stunning.

    Them working with WMI is exciting for a lot of reason. First being price and second being we may actually see these. That 7 is absolutely calling my name

    These aren't the kind of guitar I would play, but the CF one looks absolutely killer.

    Good luck on these @animalsasleader !

    I don’t want to think about how much the CF one costs, but I’m down for a WMI. If the CF style isn’t too crazy, I’d love that!

    the cf panels are like 3-500$ if you buy em direct from the guy who makes em iirc. No idea how much abasi would mark it up from there though.

    That blue 8 and carbon fibre 8 are gorgeous. Great to see it running a lot smoother now.

    Good on Tosin for keeping his head down and quietly righting the ship amidst all the noise of the past year.
    Things are looking really nice so far. I’m hopeful for his success.

    But it’ll be more expensive than the WMI because it’s a USA model. But, we shall see.

    These guitars look incredible! I'd be concerned about how to actually get one if I had the money.
