ēmi ™ is basically the sibling to the Larada. It retains the elegant and ergonomic form of the single cut variant, while offering a more aggressive shape for those who prefer double cut-away body styles. The design is highlighted by the asymmetrical, subtle teardrop-shaped OVIFORM + - ™ neck profile.
The ēmi line features a range of Fishman Fluence pickup configurations, including an S-S-S configuration on the brand new ēmi6, which is a first for Abasi Concepts. We even threw in a tone knob! While ABASI extended range instruments typically feature a multi-scale design with individual string bridges, the 'ēmi 6' and 'ēmi 7' are the answer for the players who prefer a uniform scale length and Gotoh 510 floating tremolo.
This particular ēmi Master Series collection is unique in that is sports light-weight Korina bodies and necks, paired with a roasted figured maple or ebony fingerboards. As always, each piece of wood is hand-selected, with great attention paid to quality, weight, and overall resonance of the instrument.
*** Each piece of wood is unique and will have varying grain patters, color, and frequency. The photos listed are one representation of the particular wood species offered on this guitar and will vary with each instrument.
Holy cow, this is my second Emi, but now in a 6 string. Abasi has nailed the design, fit and feel with the Emi model. Everything is just fast and smooth. I was iffy about the sss config but these Fishman Single Coils do it all. I have nothing at all to say about this guitar that could be a con. The woods are beautiful, the finish is beautiful, and the pickups are phenomenal. I’m in love with this guitar and I’m a 7 string guy. The Emi 6 brought back my love for 6 strings and introduced a pickup config I love that I have always stayed away from.
