This guitar is truly a whole different animal than the Larada. The neck profile and cutaway make this one of the shreddiest guitars I've ever owned while the pickup configuration allows for any tonal possibility you can imagine.
It's very easy to lose track of time when I pick this thing up. Keep up the great work!
You really need to see these in person to get a full appreciation for how incredibly beautiful they are and how well they are made. This instrument is perfectly crafted with incredible attention to detail.
I've been playing 30 years and this is one of the most comfortable, easy playing, and downright musical instruments I own. The gorgeous roasted maple fretboard is fast and smooth. The body contours allow for easy and ergonomic playing. Even the tuning keys - the rounded design makes accurate tuning a breeze - were considered.
Sound wise, this thing can go from face-melting to crisp, clear cleans (and everything in between). I usually wouldn't prefer a 5-way switch but with the unique S-S-H pickup configuration, it broadly expands the instruments tonal palette.
An incredible instrument and certainly won't be the last Abasi instrument I own.
For the lucky few who were able to attend this event, we spent a day in guitar heaven. A full day in an incredible Hollywood studio with some of the world’s most amazing players. In between songs, they take time to share technique, answer questions, and share their vast experiences to a very small group of like-minded musicians. Between sets, you’re surrounded by cutting edge instruments and gear that you are encouraged to plug in and let fly!
Each artist had their own unique spin on a guitar masterclass which yielded some incredible and diverse results that spoke to a wide array of musical contexts.
Truly one of the best events I’ve ever attended. I was blown away at the humility, kindness, general awesomeness of these artists. They all genuinely seemed to enjoy being in the company of fellow musicians and treated everyone in attendance as if we were in their club. The intimacy of the venue meant that it felt like you were invited to an exclusive industry event where top artists gather to coalesce ideas, theory, and technique. The attendance group was full of friendly faces who were excited to share in this amazing experience regardless of profession, skill level, or genre preference.
Then if all that wasn’t worth price of admission – you get direct access to these incredible and difficult to find instruments. I am now the proud owner of an Abasi ēmi8 along with a photo of the man himself playing It.
If this runs again, do yourself a huge favor and go. Set the nerves and anxiety aside, because the knowledge you acquire here and the access you gain to the world of guitar afterwards is not something worth missing.
I'm a complete novice but bought in anyways, and was able to ask some of the best guitarists in the industry open-ended questions of my choosing while also being able to network and small talk with like-minded musicians & producers.
You'll most likely walk away surging with newfound passion for guitar & music in general, regardless of skill level. Plus, much to my delight, everyone there was extremely friendly and approachable.
this is the best guitar i've ever played. it plays like butter, it arrived without needing a single adjustment, and it feels amazing. the pickups are exactly what i was looking for tone wise, and the sustain im able to get is wild. insanely high quality instrument even while being the more budget friendly option. 8/8 would buy another.
I have a Master 8 in Selenite which I love, but I had been really curious about the Ēmi and wanted to try one. I was lucky enough to snag this beautiful, blue 8 string, and I am very happy I did. The guitar presents as a little neck heavy (like my Master 8) but it doesn’t bother me. The quality of woods, paint job and playing experience are awesome. It’s slightly smaller than my Master and has some other neat angles, but plays very similarly. It came set up perfectly and is a joy to play. I would say that I prefer the Abasi signature pickups, but the tonal variations of the the Fluence Moderns with single coils is a great alternative. A+ tone and playing experience. I’m really happy.
After using this for a few rehearsals and gigs, it’s a great pedal. It definitely took some time for me to understand how to get the most out of it but now that I’m familiar with the pedal it can deliver a wide variety of tones. One note - the volume must be set quite high for unity gain when the gain knob is set below noon.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about these beautiful instruments? I've been playing for over 20 years, and you just know when a guitar becomes a mainstay of your collection. The clarity, whether playing through high-gain or clean, is pristine. It's also remarkably light, with easy access to all frets. The extended range and lower registers bring an instant inspiration that I haven't felt from a guitar in a long time.
