Full specs and prices for the Abasi Concepts Larada are finally available

It’s been well over two years since we first saw Tosin Abasi’s Ibanez prototype for a brand-new guitar design, and since then, the Animals As Leaders virtuoso has founded his own company, launched an overdrive pedal and now, finally, the first Abasi Concepts guitar is available to preorder.

Known as the Larada, three configurations are available; the flagship Larada 8 ($2,399), Telecaster-vibed Space T ($2,469) and the Larada 6 ($2,399).

We’ve posted the full specs for each model below - note that the Larada 6 is yet to receive an image; it’s not just us being lazy, honest.

As we saw yesterday, John Mayer is impressed with the instrument and put an order in already. You can do the same over at Abasi Concepts.
