This Larada USA Master Series guitar features a roasted basswood body, paired with a roasted maple neck, and a richlite fingerboard. 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.
I’ve had a couple weeks with this guitar, and my love for it has only grown. It has actually exceeded my expectations. This is my 2nd 8 string guitar, and the tone, resonance, and sustain it has are amazing. The neck is smooth and fast, thin and comfortable, and the access to the upper frets is probably the best out of all my guitars. The Abasi signature Fishmans are really nice, and you can get a large variety of tasty tones for whatever genre. I have several guitars with Fluence Moderns and the Keith Merrow signatures, but I think these are perhaps my favorite. I thought I would miss a tone knob, but I’ve found I don’t need it at all. The Richlite fretboard is smooth, punchy and looks great against the silver, gray AMG paint job. The looks and ergonomics of this guitar are awesome. It’s light weight and feels really good on my body as well. While it is slightly neck heavy balance wise, I don’t find it bothersome at all. I have been playing this guitar nonstop, and I feel really grateful that I was able to snag it. I highly recommend the Master series 8’s. What an amazing instrument and probably a pretty good investment as far as collectibles go. 10/10!
