We’ve definitely considered white. High gloss or matte tho?
I LOVE Richlite. Its going on my Oni build.
My preference on guitars in general is solid colors. Don't get me wrong. The wood grain and figure and all that is incredible. It just reminds me of furniture and makes me afraid to use it the way I want to.
Gloss, matte white tends to yellow faster I've noticed.
Gotta get some sparkle and maybe some Hentai/Ahegao print options
I’d say matte, when shiny guitars are on stage and the light is bouncing everywhere it’s kinda annoying and I like the feel of matte, and there’s no finger prints
bad weeb, bad weeb, go back to reddit or 4chan

The nice thing about white is that the shiny spots that all satin finishes develop are least noticeable on white, but you're right" any grime that does get into the white is much more noticeable than on any other color. You really do need to keeep up with keeping it clean, using the RIGHT cleaners, specifically designed for satin finishes...and yet not clean it so much that you wear down the micro-texture that makes up the satin-ness in the first place.
Solid colours for the win!!!
What about an off-White cream type thing? Like an old strat
Gloss white + blacker than black fretboard and hardware + black binding. Get that storm trooper look.
Also, because I love the KM7's in this finish: Lambo/metallic orange with carbon fibre binding.
While we're dreaming out loud and thinking about fast motor vehicles: Kawasaki green?
Thanks! Definitely agree about the solid color + satin and the roasted woods.
I’ve got satin nitro over white poly, looks terrific and seems to be holding up well.
Maybe an unpopular opinion but what about solid color on the the top and natural on the bevel leading to the back also natural. It would show off the wood and give a cool contrast.
PEARL white my dude
this but Larada with the white pickups, off white body, richlite, gold hardware oh my Lordy lord
Wait what about a cream color? Cream looks really good with the dark wenge neck. If not richlite, you could even do a wenge board ot something crazy liek purpleheart
Vintage Yellow and somehow incorporate some Tortieshell. But make it a pearl Vintage Yellow...
I think you're the only person out there thinking as forward shape and construction wise and willing to do a vintage throwback look. Or at least the only one who's acted on it with the Tele thing.
Any idea if the announced update of the Abasi Concepts website will involve updated inventories ? When is it planned for ?
About polling social media (including this forum) for color or build preferences:
Ola Englund gave a big warning about doing this. If I recall correctly, on two instances he did polls for Solar guitars and in the end some of the most popular options in the polls were the worst sellers.
My girlfriend is a fashion designer and had a similar experience with her company.
Food for thought...
When polling the public and particularly this forum one must remember they're not actually customers till they give you money. This is still SSO, and if someone asks for an 8 recommendation I'm still gonna say used RG2228. This is the kind of demographic you get in the forum. There are some newcomers to this thread who very much seem to be here for Abasi which is good, but it is still SSO.
That goes both ways for Tosin and Forum users.
There's lots of stuff I'd Love to see and I can sit here and post it all, heck I have a Larada build here in the build section with my own ideas. But that does not mean I will actually buy a Larada if it came in the perfect colour.
We'd all love to see pinks, two tones, fades, swirls. It comes down to how many people go "Huh cool" and like it on instagram when it gets released and how many actually buy it.
Take a leaf outta Ibanez' book with the PIA, white is the constant production colour, limited runs of colours for those who want them.
