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.
The Larada 8 Classic in Latte is my 2nd Abasi Concepts guitar.
I have been fawning after a Master Series 8 string for a few years now. Finally, I was able to snag one. This guitar does not dissapoint. The relic is incredibly unique and complements my Space T to the T.
This guitar balances being lightweight, ergonomic, comfortable in every position with a full bodied sound and thump. It cuts through the mix in both my Plug-in based and tube amp/pedal set up.
I look forward to seeing what Abasi Concepts can shake up next and I'm sure this won't be my last Abasi.
What more can I say? After playing, recording and teaching electric guitar for 35+ years, I have never had a more amazing instrument. Period.
It is a blessing to own a guitar that is designed and build so perfectly!
It inspires my playing and writing. The design is so well thought out that it takes all the discomfort away that usualy occurs after hours if playing.
The pickups and switching gives me all the sounds I need, from warm and jazzy to sparkling clean to dynamic and punchy distorted lows and singing leads.
A master piece!
All the desired elements of all my guitars molded into one perfect instrument.
I have been playing guitar for most of my life and have been exposed to a vast variety guitars over the years, from my first Gibson Les Paul Studio as a young teen, to Dean ML floating trem guitars, to venturing into extended range territory with my Jackson 7 String, Ibanez RG-8, and Strandberg Boden NX 8, I have played and found pros and cons in all my instruments. This instrument takes all the enjoyable aspects from my past instruments and mashes them together to create the perfect axe.
This guitar was labeled B stock but I can't find a single cosmetic or hardware related issue to complain about. The neck is thinner in nature which I personally love, the hardware is smooth and easy to adjust for setup, the frets are perfectly level and not a single sharp fret end to be found. The scale length on this instrument is perfect and feels like a seamless transition from the higher more conventional feeling strings to the lower 7 and 8th strings, and the fanning of the frets are a breeze to navigate. The body of the guitar is perfect both in size, weight and comfort. For a long time I have been using double cutaway guitars but something inside of me missed the single cut design that I cut my teeth on with my Les Paul. This guitar basically takes a single cut design to the next level with an incredible cut away behind the neck for you to easily get down to the higher frets while providing an ergonomic bottom very similar to a Strandbergs cutaway design. The Fishman Tosin pickups sound incredible and I have played Fishman Moderns in my Strandberg, these have a unique character to them which are different to the Moderns, these will give you crystal cleans, spanky slaps and thumps, cutting fluid leads, and chunky chugs, they do it all. The tuning stability is perfect, when it arrived after shipping it was in tune, and even after being in a new climate, it still retains tuning and the neck is still right where it should be set. Top it all off with incredible customer service and wonderful videos on how to correctly maintain the instrument found on the Abasi FAQ, you will have no trouble setting your instrument up to either the recommended spec or to your own taste.
I truly feel blessed to have this axe in my arsenal as this specific design and finish has been on my radar since 2020 before they sold out. I look forward to the years of playing such a beautiful instrument, and can't thank the kind folks at Abasi Concepts enough for providing me with the perfect tools to work with, from the Pathos Pedal, to this wonderful instrument, Abasi Concepts has yet to disappoint me!
This Master series is legit on another level of guitar craftmanship. I was shocked at how light weight it was and the fact that it is just as long my fender telecaster! The body contours and neck profile are super comfortable and inspiring. And the triburst relic finish was so beautifully done. This guitar is downright sexy af!
I always wanted to try one of those guitars and I finally got one!
There is something magical about it. I feel I want to play more, create more, from metal lines to cleans as background to singing.
The craftmanship is amazing, higher magnitude more than any guitar I tried.
I love the neck profile and how easy is to access the higher frets, the roundness of the neck where it attaches to the body is a great idea. Every guitar should be like this!
The look is incredible, loving it every day more.
The guitar has a good weight, a mix of important wood but comfortable: not heavy, but you know you have quality wood in your hands. Some other guitars feel like plastic.
It is really magical, and playing with it gave me fresh energy after 25 years of playing this amazing instrument. I feel a kid with its first guitar :D
It exceeded my expectations in any way possible!
Thank you for creating such a masterpiece.
Ēmi 6: Comfort, Quality, Tone… and amazing customer service!
From the moment I unboxed the Ēmi 6, it was clear that this was not your average guitar. It's a thing of beauty, especially with the Latte finish and through neck, but what really sets it apart is how it feels in your hands.
This guitar is a 6-string, a departure from the 7 or 8-string models typically seen from Abasi Concepts. It's reminiscent of the familiar Strat sound, but with a unique touch that makes it stand out.
Despite its slim neck, it's remarkably comfortable to play, even for someone with very large hands like me. It's almost as if it was custom-made for my grip, which made playing feel so natural and smooth.
I have to give credit to Marshall and Ivan from Abasi Concepts. Despite some shipping damage issues with UPS with the first guitar they sent (In black) but they were quick to resolve the problem. A new replacement... hand built and perfectly set up arrived at my door, ready to be played right out of the box!
In terms of value, the Ēmi 6 is absolutely worth the price. Beyond the sound and appearance, it's the overall playing experience that truly makes this guitar a joy. If you're considering it, I'd say go for it. You won't regret the decision, that's for sure. But warning… best be ready to jump when the next batch drops… they go fast!
