Some shots of a headless prototype up on their Instagram now
Looks like a regular body so far. Dunno what I expected lol
Hi, newbie here: JJ’s my handle. L
Thank you all on SS for many forums that have been a big help in making purchases, and for me this was HUGE.
Got one here in Japan: played it twice at a shop in Tokyo, couldn’t forget it, went back to Osaka (2nd largest city) and a week later...
Sorry that got posted before I finished.
I got a 6 string with a maple ‘board.
All I can say is it is very easy to play so far; the fanned frets cause an optical illusion for me in contrast with the maple, but the fingers fell in to place. It is a VERY high quality instrument.
The pickups are a bit TOO clear: unforgiving, to be honest (lol). Makes me see I have more practicing to do, really.
thats a beauty :O !! congrats. Feel free to post more photos, we love those here also feel free to create a NGD tread for it with more photos and info, congrats!
I shall indeed: I joined this site mainly to comment on this thread! Lol
I checked out that exact guitar too and it's excellent. Congrats!
Yep: Kurosawa in Shibuya: their 0% payment plan sealed it! LOL
I was in Tokyo after almost 20 years with my fiancé and I went to all the shops I’d only seen on Digimart! Lol
I went to play that axe twice, and just couldn’t forget it (or the price tag lol), so I took a BIG dive.
Anybody else heard anything from them recently? I emailed about my order after three months of radio silence and have yet to get a reply.
i saw this in passing on the magnifying glass page on instagram a couple days ago.
That's not good. There's nothing up on their FB or IG about it.
So now the question is, does Tosin go back to Ibanez? He had a big Ibanez banner in a recent Instagram post. No social media posts from them in 2 months.
This would be such a let down, after all the fanfare, and all the people who were naysayers and not holding their breath about a new custom company and then all the push back from Abasi people especially on here and then they shit the bed.
edit: I guess those low serial numbers will be real collector items for sure now
Would be utterly disappointing if this is true, also makes me glad I held back on my order when we discussed it. @jephjacques any word on that custom you ordered?
Last time I checked they were only accepting waitlist, I thought it was a good sign , but I haven't seen a pic or an update on FB in a while.
I know there's no official statement yet, but I agree it would be higly disappointing if it's true.
Hoping all the orders will be completed at least.
No word on it from Abasi. SOME word from a third party, but nothing I feel comfortable talking about just yet. If I don't hear back from them in a week or so I'll go public with what I've been told, damn the torpedos. It's...not good.
Well, I wouldn't mind if he goes back to Ibanez..
That only means more people could enjoy those guitars!
Hell, they could hire Frank like they did with Sugi (M8M) for the high end model and also release the simpler black one they made before Tosin left. Everybody wins haha
Damn I totally forgot about these...
Well that sounds kinda scary. Hope all ends well.
