    You're thinking satin finishes.

    How else are you going to get a good even tone, Steven?

    Satin poly is much thinner than gloss poly, so it does sound better!

    For pricing Tosin said that the WMI Models will be around 1600-1800 USD, the J-Laradas at around 2800 USD and US Models will be at 3k USD and above, with the emphasis on "and above"...
    Availability is the big question mark, Tosin only mentioned that WMI is 8 string for now, 7 will follow soon and 6 after that.

    The neck profile on those look rather flat at the high end, which for me is absolutely perfect. Just need to wait till the production models come to the uk to try em out. But the production WMI model with the burl top is my favourite out of the bunch and thankfully appears also to be the cheapest option, even better if it feels like the set next models. Anyone who's tried them able to give an impression on the neck profiles?

    I am really curious for the WMI ones, will definitely try out when available in Europe!

    Still love the design, and the bold on neck doesn't look to bad on the WMI ones, for some reason better than on the japan version.
    Really hoping they will be available in europe!

    I'm happy things seem to be working out for Tosin and the company after the ups and downs with production, establishing the brand, etc. It couldn't have been an easy process to get everything together and it's a hell of an investment of time and resources. The Space T in particular has my eye, I'd love to see it in a few different colors!

    In a way I totally have no right to claim, I’m super proud of Tosin for holding it down for the past year and some change, and coming out the other side with some excitement and positive vibes for this line. It was pretty brutal outlooks, in here at least, and I don’t imagine it was much nicer elsewhere. Rightfully so, depending on who you ask I suppose. Nonetheless here we are. Kudos to my dude, solid birthday blessing I’m sure.
