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 instrument sports light-weight okoume body, paired with a roasted, figured maple neck, and ebony fingerboard. 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.
I've been playing guitar for almost 25 years and this, out of all the electric guitars I own, is the most well crafted with the greatest attention to detail. The contouring is exceptional with the gloss finish which allows the guitar to slide against your body when held and is equally comfortable standing or sitting. The satin front helps anchor your hand. The bottom contour makes playing in classical position incredibly ergonomic. The finish is flawless. Hipshot locking tuners are great and the bridge is very user friendly and will likely make string changes a breeze compared to other locking systems. The pickups are fantastic, clean, and crisp. Pretty much as flawless guitar. Long time fan of Animals for Leaders and very much appreciate the attention to detail that went into crafting these things. My first guitar growing up was a strat, but this is like the ultimate iteration of the model. Had some issues with UPS just dropping this at my place without even ringing the bell, but that is on them for not following protocol (make sure someone is home if you have one of these delivered and checking repeatedly). The case is very well crafted and the guitar was packaged very well for shipping. Fantastic guitar, definitely looking into buying an extended range Larada or Emi if they don't sell out too fast. This won't be showing up on Reverb for resale and no, I am not a bot.
