    Holy cow, I had no idea. Having not followed it that quickly, I thought the shape was drawn up by Ibanez. Has Darren been weighing in on this whole Abasi guitar thing? I don’t follow him on FB, and had no idea he was connected to it.

    He's posted multiple renders of his ideal response to the situation. Unfortunately, nothing real has been posted yet.

    Oh, I heard he's already preparing a 30th anniversary commemoration of his editorial reply to the Abasi Guitars situation.

    Don't forget to buy your official "Darren's Response" t-shirts and picks.

    Probably. No-one but Ibanez and Tosin are privy to their business dealings. All we can tell from what Tosin has said is that it was a venture that didn't pan out. It happens.

    Man, really think that falbo one looks better than the actual abasi stuff we've seen so far.

    Those are still Falbo's build, I guess?

    Grover's build is not yet finished.

    It works much better as a headless. Is there a headless option for the Grover builds?

    Kinda off topic but have you even seen one of Thundercat's sigs in the wild? There are 0 in Australia and we have just about every other Ibanez in production here.

    I think they old 'produce' them because he's the biggest bassist in the world ATM. There were/are rumors about them being ghost build by other luthiers but if that means anything to anyone

    They're built by Sugi and are to be made in small batches to order, just like the M8M.

    I believe only a single batch was built and shipped.

    I wouldn't really consider this a "production" model. More like a custom with a set spec sheet.

    This shit starts to remind me of WWE. Suddenly Falbo is the good guy when he used to be the bad guy. :lol:

    He would only be the bad guy if one was to take a single side's statements as unquestionably true. In WWE, the bad guy pops up and makes it blatantly obvious he IS the designated bad guy. :lol:

    Good question. Those two beauties looked exactly like those of the NAMM show vids on YT. Does that mean they were Falbo`s? idk
