To clarify 'liking' this, I'm not happy about your misfortune or their's but I'm glad you got your refund and that you're keeping us all updated. We've seen that happen a few times, actually. There was just recently a guy on Metalguitarist that had an order with Sims that has been dragging on and on and on for years, and he threatened civil action against Sims, and within a week the guitar neck showed up completely finished and in pristine shape. That said, there's a lot of different scenarios where that could happen. It might not be about running out of money to actually completely the build as far as resources go, but maybe not enough to pay labor or potentially even a falling out between the company and production facility (in this case, Tosin and Frank), or Frank has other commitments/issues preventing him from being able to put in the rest of the work on these no matter how far along they are. In any of those scenarios, it might make sense to hang onto the half built guitars with the expectation of either 1.) having them finished if/when another producer is found 2.) if the intent is to SELL the company or the IP, as much stock as possible would be worth more in value than Tosin would be getting in shipping half built guitars to people for the cost of the deposits 3.) if Tosin's intention is for Abasi Guitars to continue in full, you don't want guitars out there with your name on them that were half completed by people in their garage.
