#8 – Tosin Abasi custom 8-string

Appropriately, #8 will be an 8-string, for Tosin Abasi of Animals as Leaders.

We had been communicating for a while before NAMM, so it was a great pleasure to finally meet in person and let Tosin test #6.

Preliminary specs are:

  • 8-string bolt-on 27.5″ – 26.5″ (subject to change) mixed scale
  • Rosewood / maple / carbon fiber neck
  • Swamp ash chambered body with flamed maple top and f-hole
  • Rosewood fingerboard
  • Stainless steel frets
  • Custom Lace Alumitone pickups

Plenty more details will follow as we hash out the details.
