    All the 50’s era Fender colors are awesome. Before all that metal flake tomfoolery.

    Hey you take that back! All of these colors with the metal flake look fantastic.

    Perhaps "tomfoolery" was too strong a word to use.

    While I enjoy the fancy shiny finishes, there's something about the old, plasticy looking seafoam green and shell pink that is just delightful.

    Cool. Really rooting for this brand to get up and going. The design looks killer. Just need them to get more established so that I'm comfortable with an order and for them to open up the options again (of course: straight frets and Floyd are necessary!).

    It's cool that all the Famouses are getting their abasis, primo marketing on their part, but have we seen any other ones in the wild yet?

    Or even any guitars that weren't show guitars from NAMM.

    Seriously what's going on with actual customers? I figured we'd see something by now.

    My bet is on the curse. They have at least three yaks and a goat to sacrifice to Aeshma and two chickens to Sabnock before a pristine one can ship to a not-rockstar.

    I actually have spotted ancient symbols pertaining Zoroastrian tradition in AAL's shows, cleverly hidden in mundane things such as pedalboards and cymbals. I shall now head to the P&CE to post my theory explaining how Tosin as his evil Aeshma worshippers are secretly controlling world events with no factual evidence whatsoever.

    What’s sad is all the evidence that everything is out of Tosin’s control.

    To be honest, many things are so ambitious in terms of timelines and production amounts that you have a lot that can go wrong. Should they have decided to slow the pace to get the machine going smoothly, that would be a wise course of action IMO.

    Outstanding that Jason is playing it in classical position so now I can finally gauge how ergonomic the shape actually is. Thanks for posting!

    They quoted 3-6 months, I'm betting 6-9 months at least. Not because I dont trust em but because I DO trust them to not send out straight up lemons. If they end up taking more time, I'm great with that.

    Leadtime.jpg 100% agreed on the point that they should be honest with the quality and make sure they're not sending out anything less than perfect guitars, with the history here especially

    I’ll be in Cali this summer so I’m wondering if I could try one? Idk if Tosin or Ivan will see this but I’m in Ireland so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to see one on this island for a couple years.

    You can see one in as little as 10 weeks...apparently...if you order one.
