This Larada USA Master Series guitar features a special relic treatment on an all satin white color. This nitro cellulose finish features checking lines, as well as some light relic'ing to complement the age cracks. Underneath a traditional sunburst finish is exposed. It sports an okume body, roasted maple neck and fingerboard with binding. Each piece of wood is hand-selected, with great attention paid to quality and weight.
Larada 8 string guitars feature multi-scale fanned frets, offering a fusion of optimal string tension with uncompromised playability. Each USA Master Series Larada comes equipped with Tosin Abasi’s signature Fishman Fluence pickups, Hipshot Tuners, and D’Addario NYXL strings.
This guitar is a work of art but it sounds even better than it looks. The fishman pickups are responsive and dynamic at low gain and brutal at high gain without getting muddy. The battery lasts so long I can't even remember the last time I charged it. In my opinion multi-scale on an 8 string is a must and it's perfectly executed here. String tension feels comfortable no matter where I am on the neck. Lastly I want to give a shoutout to the tuners! I love the barrel option - being able to roll the tuning head between my fingers makes fine adjustments a breeze.
