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 guitar is a B-stock item. This is your opportunity to purchase a fully-functional, structurally sound Larada Legion with minor cosmetic flaws for a significant discount. Each B-stock guitar is tested, inspected, and fully covered by our warranty, with the exception of the cosmetic defects.B-stock orders do not automatically ship with a case. An Abasi Concepts hardshell case can be optionally added to your order.
Instrument wise, is very solid and comfortable. Love the string spacing and the cutaways, very easy to play for a 8 string.
Has a bit of a neck dive, but it was expected by the thin basswood body and the wenge neck, like any other guitar you need to find your sweet spot.
Not much to say about the Fishman, you can practically get any sound with them.
You want a guitar to play not to stare at it so no worries of being a B-stock.
I can see where the mishaps happened, but as mentioned they were addressed and the guitar plays as it should, great setup with very low action. (and I live in Europe and didn´t bought a case and just had to tune it, and intonation was spot on.)
Customer care five stars, very supportive went the extra mile to accommodate my order.
The only thing that could have been better is to have a dealer or a hub in Europe =)
Blown away with the fit and finish. The instrument was setup to perfection and ready to play straight out of the box. The body is light and resonant. The contours pop aesthetically and allow for extreme comfort no matter the playing position. The pickups are powerful and incredibly versatile. At this price point, Abasi Concepts is in a league of their own. Import? Could have fooled me. Definitely looks, feels and sounds better than any I’ve ever played over the course of 20 years.
