I have a Strandberg Boden Prog 7 and I thought there could be no guitar as good as the Strandberg, but: The Larada Legion 8 is one of it's kind and definitely one of the best guitars I've ever played. The position of the pick-ups is a bit tricky at the beginning as I'm hitting it with the pick but after a few minutes it's absolutely perfect. Together with Strandberg the Larada is an absolute outstanding guitar – perfectly built and with a great tone!

Best guitar I've ever played

As someone transitioning from 6 to 8 strings I was very hesitant to invest in such an expensive guitar. Needless to say im not only satisfied, but truly believe this is the best guitar I have every played. Beyond just the gorgeous guitar itself, the playability is unlike any other. A neck so thin I can still wrap my thumb around at the 1st fret, smoothness from the wenge neck that slides like butter, a body shape that has allowed me to sit comfortably for 6 hours in the same position without the same back pain i usually get from a 6 string, and pickups that literally dig into your ear with the sharpest tones I've ever heard. This beast of a guitar is uncomparable to any of the hundreds of guitars I've played before and really sets a new standard for what I expect from my instrument. If I could give a 6th star I would, this instrument is truly something you need to play to understand the genius that is the abasi concepts team and Tosin himself. I look forward to the direction this company is headed, i will be purchasing more of these guitars in the future

I got mine in today and I am blown away! I can’t imagine what the custom shops are like based on this one. It came all the way to PA still in tune. Amazing set up, she’s an absolute beast! Best 8 string I’ve played yet by far! Go Abasi!
