Abasi Concepts has added a six-string option to its Larada Legion electric guitar series. The Larada Legion 6 arrives with the same future-forward body shape as its seven and eight-string Larada Legion siblings, and while $1,999 it might be few players’ idea of a cheap date, these South Korean-built electrics nonetheless offer a more affordable entry point into the wonderful world of Tosin Abasi’s brand.

For a certain stripe of contemporary prog or metal player, Abasi is a veritable Willy Wonka figure, a transformative player at the vanguard of today's pro-owned guitar companies. His designs challenge the established form of the instrument, with everything geared towards performance, and the discovery of new techniques.
