This Larada USA Master Series guitar features an okoume body, paired with a gorgeous roasted and figured maple neck and fingerboard. Each piece of wood is hand-selected, with great attention paid to quality and weight.
Master Series Laradas come equipped with Tosin Abasi’s signature Fishman Fluence pickups, Hipshot Tuners, and D’Addario NYXL strings.
After many guitars from "traditional" high end brands like Mayones, EBMM, Skervesen, Strandberg, Aristides, etc, I was in quest for something else.
I knowed Abasi but here, in Europe, it's very hard to find one, especially the master builds. Since the moment I received the last newsletter update saying that a batch will be available, I put many alarm on my phone and was waiting for it! I was finally very lucky to order the Oceanburst finish, 1 week later, it was at home, and boy, what a surprise!! It needed a small setup to get the perfect action that works for me, and after that, I was at home directly! It has an awesome feeling, it reminds me a kind of Ibanez (Tosin may know why :p) but a better version of it! It's very ergonomic and the guitar is very light.
Plugged into a Neural Quad Cortex, it sounds awesome, those Tosin's signature pickups are really versatiles and we can hear that this guitar was designed to deal with them!
Quality is perfect, nothing to say... Oh finally just one thing : good work guys!
I love it and I'll be happy to grab some other ones! Finally a fresh wind for moderns guitarists!
