Larada Legion 8 - Crimson Metallic

Perfect Instrument!

Amazing instrument

The larada Legion are great for those who want the sound and looks of an abasi instrument for a lower price.
Sound -
The Tosin Fishman pickups are amazing and versatile, especially with the second voice option
The guitar may look big and bulky but it is very light and ergonomic. The neck is in the Thicker side but not to thick and the higher fret access is great
Reliability and build quality -
The custom abasi locking tuners are great and holds the tuning great
Build quality -
Superb building by the schecter factory with great setup and the finish is amazing

Cons -
Obviously the price, but considering the shape is unique and the guitar is very limited it evens out a bit.
The only real complaint is during live shows sometimes I hit the the 8th string to strong and it falls out of the bridge saddle

Sick djentstick, not sure what the other 7 strings are for though

But seriously this has been my first dive into either 8 string or multiscale guitars and it’s a joy. Ergonomic design makes it really comfortable to play. Sounds great. Super unique aesthetic to the guitar. Really every bit as cool as I was hoping it would be!
