    I'm really GASing for the carbon fiber "quilted" top one. I wonder how much it's going to cost.

    And the non carbon fibre pink ones? A friend at NAMM sent me a video of you insisting I buy a guitar, so I'm doing my best.

    Definitely gonna do the burl. Maybe a solid color for the second option. What would choose for something you’d like, but would also appeal to a lot of other people?

    Considering I see a company like Charvel selling a ton of their new DK24s with the roasted maple necks and solid colored bodies, I feel like people are starting to want more solid colored guitars again. I know I do, and I see others on here wanting the same.

    I would honestly make a poll with 4-5 solid options and let your social media followers vote. That would also make them feel more connected to the development of the instrument and give you an idea of what colors people would like. (Look at trending guitar colors. People want pizzazz and flash)
    I.E
    Shell Pink- Satin
    Chartreuse- Gloss
    Light Blue- Satin
    Burgundy Mist- Satin
    White-Gloss
    Lavender- Satin
    Road flare red esque color- Gloss
    Seafoam Green- Satin/Gloss
    (Don't the WMI people do swirls now? I remember seeing Jacksons and Balaguers with them)


    The reason this is popular here is because people feel connected to the development having been keeping up with the history of your company and you being involved with the forum. Doing a poll could help people outside of the forum to get that same connection that this forum has with your company.

    I'm in for Solid Colors as well, I don't enjoy the variance of figured veneers in general. So if I could just get a solid black WMI 8 string I'd be pretty happy with that over the wood option.

    Thanks for weighing in and listening to the needy SSO banter :lol:

    Congrat on the new line up Tosin ! I'm happy to see AC finally taking off!

    As for the current/futur offering, I'd highly consider a WMI made 7 strings in a solid color, preferably all satin or gloss (also keep the cost lower than having a 2 tones finish I suspect), roasted maple or wenge neck with an ebody/richlite fingerboard. If I can add my 2 cents, I'm not a big fan of the roasted maple neck and non-roasted fingerboard of the moewrada. I prefer when both match.

    Actually yeah, I don't know what the preference is from a manufacturing standpoint. But if you could push Richlite as the dark fretboard option that would be heavenly, more people need to experience it and I'd love to have a richlite fretboard so I just don't have to deal with ebony shrinking ever again.
