The Legion series packs all quintessential high-end features of the Larada in the most affordable Abasi Concepts package to date: basswood bodies, wenge necks, ebony fingerboards, and Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi pickups.
As expected, these guitars feature a thin “U” neck profile and a Gotoh 510 bridge, offering a fusion of uncompromised playability and rock solid stability. Each guitar comes equipped with Abasi Concepts locking tuners and D’Addario NYXL strings.
Shipping was pretty fast considering it came from west to east coast. The sound is amazing! I can go from crystal cleans, damn near acoustic, to beastly chugs! My only complaint was the set up was sub par for a $2000 guitar (Reason for 4 stars). Thankfully though there are set up videos on the Abasi Website that are spot on with how to set the guitar up. After a string change, the high E popped, and a quick set up, the guitar sounds and feels amazing!
What a wonderful guitar!
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.
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 .
Best guitar I own.
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.
