an angel disguised as a demon

this guitar is everything i could have dreamed of. playing this guitar feels like driving the batmobile.. it can pretty much do everything and more. tosins fluence signature pickups really do live up to the hype, as i have been experimenting a lot with heavy distortion, and have been able to actually maneuver the mud and sludge while still achieving a desired tone (shoutout 5-way push-pull pot as well).

additionally, i was fortunate enough to attend the abasi concepts guitar forum in november ‘23, and - along with others i’m sure - made a comment about the steep entry point, and lo and behold 7 months later they delivered on the legion stealth line.

truly the best guitar company around. incredibly grateful to own such a wonderful piece of equipment.

Life with Emi | Emi 8 Legion Stealth

Life with an Emi spoils you. I've had mine for around a week and a half and in that time I've done 2 shows with it in addition to my usual practice. Right out of the box, this guitar was solid. The QC on mine was phenomenal and the build quality is amazing. Don't be put off by the fact that it's a basswood body. Something about the combination of basswood and a wenge neck makes for an incredibly snappy guitar. Add in the 25.5-27.5 scale length and the low strings have incredible tuning stability while retaining the proper tension to get really tight riffage. The upper register of the neck also feels like butter when playing leads.

The cutaways and the body bevels lend itself to incredible ease of access when playing both standing and sitting. This guitar sits so tight with the body that it becomes a part of you. The saddle height allowing for your hand to practically sit on the body when picking, and the tighter string spacing aids in increased accuracy when playing intricate rhythms or leads. The bottom cutaway in conjunction with the heel joint on the back also allows for some of the easiest access to a 24th fret that I've every had on a guitar.

Everything about this guitar creates an incredibly satisfying physical experience when playing the Emi, but also an incredibly rewarding mental experience. It's no secret that the majority of players on the Abasi roster are monster musicians and incredibly forward thinking guitar technicians. Having that in the back of my head when playing this guitar makes me a better player. The way I sit with the guitar, the way my hand travels across the neck; for a "budget" production guitar, the Emi is still one of the best guitars I own.

I'm sure there is more I can mention with the Emi; the phenomenal pickups, the aesthetics, everything is really thought out with the Legion line, and its no exaggeration to say that I will be picking up another one when the cards are right (blue Emi Legion 7 trem please). A job well done to the Abasi team on creating a monster piece of gear.
