The positives. Looks fantastic and plays fantastic. The 10 different sound settings you can get with the selector switch combined with the push pull can get you any sound you want. Very comfortable neck. Really easy to play while sitting down.
The very little negatives. Just a reminder. You have to press in to the input jack pretty hard. No big deal. The guitar does take a little getting used to in the upper registers with the bolt on, but it really is easy once you figure it out.
Fantastic build quality. Great feedback from customer service also.
Let me start off by saying that as soon as I touched this guitar I got lost in it for months. I play 8 strings religiously but this is by far the best one I have ever played. The sound is crystal clear. The design of the body allows me to be more flexible and otherworldly with my playing, fanned frets let's me dig in deeper for those heavy notes and you know you gotta love that single coil love. It's just sexy as hell haha. Love it.
This guitar is a work of art but it sounds even better than it looks. The fishman pickups are responsive and dynamic at low gain and brutal at high gain without getting muddy. The battery lasts so long I can't even remember the last time I charged it. In my opinion multi-scale on an 8 string is a must and it's perfectly executed here. String tension feels comfortable no matter where I am on the neck. Lastly I want to give a shoutout to the tuners! I love the barrel option - being able to roll the tuning head between my fingers makes fine adjustments a breeze.
Thanks Abasi Concepts for bringing this on. A definite game changing guitar. In addition to it's playability and ergonomics, the instrument is a delight for getting tones via a DAW - wonderful pickups and tone woods. I'm a clean tone player and I can do the jazz and ethereal rock with pleasure.
This is my second Abasi Concept guitar and the only Telecaster style guitar I own. Flat out awesome playability comfort, and tone. I bought the Chartreuse because it was the only color available and didn't think I would really like this "yellowish" color. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the case, and now I actually love it, very different and tasteful color- almost has a shifting greenish hue at times. These pickups sound amazing clean, and I'm digging how easy it is to get to the "breakup" edge with the boost button. It does fit in the nicer branded and fitted Abasi case that my first one came in, which travels better IMO.
I have had this guitar since November, and it is still the best purchase I have made in the past decade. I waited up one Sunday and continuously clicked buy until I was able to get it in the cart and pay for it.
Words don’t do this instrument any justice. I am so fortunate to be able to own the beautiful guitar, and I cannot wait to get another one. I own an Ernie Ball Majesty 7 that pales in comparison to my Abasi Larada 8 Master Series.
From the Fishman pickups, to the hip shot tuners; from the birds eye maple neck, to the gold hardware, everything about this instrument is top quality.
Thank you for making such a beautiful guitar. If anyone is wondering if it is worth it to spend the money, it is worth literally every single penny. I will only be playing Abasi guitars going forward.
Pretty much bought this guitar on a whim because it was available , At some point in my 20+ years playing I’ve owned my share of fairly high end guitars , I absolutely can not stress enough how user friendly this guitar is being comfortable while playing just naturally adds speed accuracy and a desire to just play more , the tone at this price range is unbelievable . I could run on many more sentences about it . Seriously the best value for your money ever . I would not hesitate to buy another one .
I own a handful of really nice custom guitars from the major brands and love them all, but I have to say this guitar is hand down the best guitar I own in terms of playability (neck and body), the tone from these pickups, and the aesthetic. Anyone who's seen mine says they really like the look. Great design Abasi Concepts, I'll be looking out for more of your gear over the years to come.
These guitars are flawless. Now, I'm going to review this based on the guitar, not my personal feelings. I say that because I have small amount of buyer's remorse. These guitars usually go quick, so I bought mine the second I saw it was available. It's an objectively wonderful guitar, but I *hate* floating bridges. Not the end of the world, I can block it off. I assumed it would just be like the other Larada's and be a hardtail (I like to change tunings a lot). I wish I read the description better, but I also assumed that the time taken to read the description would result in the guitar being sold out since the description comes out the second it the guitars go live.
Anyway, that aside, it's a very well-made guitar and plays fantastic which is why I didn't dock it any stars for my own ignorance. The neck feels great and the pickups are always fire. I have a Larada 8 and 7 string, so I already knew the pickups would be on point. Lovely guitar. Hope to block off the bridge soon!
