This special edition LARADA 6 Master Series Custom features an okoume body, roasted figured maple neck, ebony fingerboard, as well as a flame maple top with a beautiful burst to tie the whole design together.
This is, hands down the nicest guitar I have played in the 30 years I've been a guitarist! First off the look of it, the two piece flame maple top is so beautiful. You can find yourself falling in to a trance if you look at it too long...
I was not ready for the sounds this guitar makes. The Okoume body produces a very warm, tight, responsive, modern tone. Coupled, of course with the Abasi Fishman pickups I can play a wide variety of styles with this instrument. As for the feel of it, the neck profile is very comfortable. It is not super slim nor too chunky. I can reach the upper frets with my whole hand without forcing any movements thanks to the graceful cut away where the neck joins the body. The roasted maple neck is both beautiful and comfortable and my fingers move effortlessly across the ebony fingerboard.
Thank you Abasi Concepts for creating this masterpiece of an instrument and putting it in my hands!
