The Larada USA Master Series features alder bodies, paired with eastern hard rock maple necks, and richlite or maple fingerboards. 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.
When I got my Larada 8, each morning as I opened the case I would feel this wave of energy and excitement move up through my body. It has been such a pleasure to be able to play this amazing instrument everyday, and this feeling has stayed with me months later. The excitement and gratitude I feel when I play my Larada 8 has always let me know I made the right choice. Expanding to 8 strings has been amazing and challenged my creative thinking to grow. The signature Tosin pickups are great, they feel so responsive and on one setting give such a crisp deep low sound that has me wanting to spend all my time on the 7th and 8th strings. The consistency of my practice has also increased, simply because I fell in love with my instrument and it's sound. This guitar looks and feels amazing to play right out of the box. Ivan and Tosin were amazing, helping me get this guitar in my hands and plugged in. I have so much gratitude and appreciation for everyone working at Abasi Concepts, thanks for designing such a great instrument.
