LARADA 8 // Master Series // V Green

The Larada ® 8 is our flagship model, designed with comfort, playability, and ergonomics in mind. Its flowing curves and contours allow the instrument to sit closely against the player’s body, while the neck’s deep-set position and more compact string spacing create for a seamless transition from standard range instruments.

Larada 7 & 8-string guitars feature multi-scale fanned frets, offering a fusion of optimal string tension with uncompromised playability. These models are loaded with individual string bridges, while the standard scale Larada 6 sports a Gotoh 510 floating tremolo. Each Larada comes equipped with Tosin Abasi’s signature Fishman Fluence pickups, stainless steel frets, and locking tuners. 

This Larada USA Master Series guitar features an okoume body, roasted maple neck, and richlite fingerboard. Each piece of wood is hand-selected, with great attention paid to quality, weight, and overall resonance of the instrument.

Spectacular guitar with great support team

Having the option to own such a unique, iconic, and beautiful sounding guitar is a game changer in the realm of music creation. The design ideas implemented in this guitar set it in a separate category than nearly any other instrument. The Fishman pickups sound fantastic and present a usable range of overwound passive to active metal to strat and tele tones makes it very versatile. The body cuts, the set neck pocket, and gloss/matte paint job clearly display the improved quality control that plagued earlier Abasi guitars. The design of the cutaway is beautiful. I personally feel that the neck is a "melt away" shape. You do not notice the neck in any way, and with a proper strap height results in little adjustment time to the broad 8 string fretboard.

Unfortunately there were some issues when I received the guitar, but the Abasi Support team did a fantastic job of addressing. The case was not aligned perfectly, so they sent me a new case a replacement. There were some string fit issues I needed to manage via modification - .74 gauge strings are not tiny! Abasi sent me some extra string to tide me over until fixed.

Everyone may have different value statements when they purchase instruments of this caliber (artisan, top of the line), but my ask is customer service in combination with specific design decisions that present a more meaningful experience to the player and originality. Abasi Concepts and their Larada passes with flying colors in these categories. The paint job and style are impeccable. Will this be my only Abasi? Hope not!
