The Legion series packs all quintessential high-end features of the Larada in the most affordable Abasi Concepts package to date: basswood bodies, wenge necks, ebony fingerboards, and Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi pickups. As expected, these guitars feature a compound radius and multi-scale fanned frets, offering a fusion of optimal string tension with uncompromised playability. Each guitar comes equipped with Abasi Concepts locking tuners and D’Addario NYXL strings.
THIS COLOR IS LIMITED TO 25 PIECES WORLDWIDE IN 2020.
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!
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!
