AbasiConcepts instagram, whoever runs it answered a customer question under a new post
"I'm not trying to play as fast as possible."
Proceeds to play a bunch of weird sweepy harmonics.
"I find myself pulled towards something deeper...something more..existential...there's a deeper reality that I'm trying to get into... that can only be accessed through..." a looper pedal.
Is it just me or is Abasi Concepts/Guitars main market a bunch of elite cork-sniffing hipsters?
Usually when a guitarist bases all their music around a single technique or concept their music ends up being really boring and same-y. When I saw ichika live I almost fell asleep standing up, and Polyphia was similar. I haven't heard any of Roopam's songs but at least his riffs are cool.
There is an update from mail list. Never notice the update mail until several search in my inbox...
There is a video again... The build Mr. Grover holding looks cool
Abasi guitars concepts web just closed order and says sold out!!!!!?
Oh dear here we go
Another while yet from the looks of things. Probably closing orders to handle the back log since estimated times for new orders would be quite off now.
Instrumental acoustic like Preston Reed or Andy McKee works a lot better in a live setting. I’ve always found instrumental electric guitar doesn’t translate well live.
Anyone else try the fretting hand harmonic and fail miserably lol
What were you expecting.
To be honest I'm not entirely sure I was expecting. Turtle necks and Apple-esk marketing wasn't high on the list though.
Have you seen tosin
Last time I really followed Tosin was in 2012 when he came to Aus with Ibanez to do a clinic. Got to meet him, super chill dude, let everyone have a play of his LACS (white RG8 w/wenge neck, was gorgeous). He wasn't so... Steve Jobs back then.
What a tool.
Ah, I listened to that clinic video a lot. Placed a Strandberg order around it.
To be fair, there were like three videos from NAMM (or some other MI show) where HE failed miserably at playing them demoing gear. They all seem to have magically disappeared off IG a few days later, though.
He is multiplicity of the word multiplicity was annoying. Seems apparent he was trying to sound sophisticated and edgy. Then, when talking about why he chose the guitar, he starts choking up with so many "uhm"s that it was honestly quite awkward to watch.
This form of advertising is the worst. Also, at least half the video isn't even the recording you're hearing, if you noticed.
"and just every neck and every sort of tone you can get from the guitar is something I've always been interested in"
Guess the Larada neck won't be enough for him, he needs EVERY neck!
"if you can play fast then you can play well"
he's not claiming this, he's talking about high school classmates but it reminds me of this video ->
IF YOU CAN PLAY IT SLOW, THEN YOU CAN PLAY IT FAST!
"so essentially you can create a whole cascade of harmonics that just produce a multiplicity of possibilities"
"The Larada just speaks to me on so many levels. Just the fact that it was born out of just the mind of, of someone who has pushed the music industry forward in so many ways in a sense that everything about the guitar just speaks of innovation and of beauty and of forward thinkingness, which is something that I am heavily drawn towards.
Dang, it's the new Gibson. A company that thinks they're innovating when they aren't at all.
"So to me what attracts me most about the Larada is the neck, is the multi-scale neck, because uh to me it looks fourth-dimensional almost."
don't get too excited there, time traveler. I guess everything looks 4th-dimensional if it looks like it will be there a few seconds from now
So in summary, selling points of the guitar:
comfort, curves, can be held in a multiplicity of ways
born from the mind of Tosin
You guys should all go buy one.
Being completely serious, I actually wanted one of these near the start of this thread. This hot garbage they call marketing though makes sure I'll never send a dime their way. There is no way I'd want to enforce the idea that this style of marketing is good and have it pay off for them.
I was unable to watch the whole thing! Pretentious doesn’t even begin to cover it...
I've tried clicking the link directly, copying and pasting the link into a browser, etc. and can't seem to watch the video (same as with the first one)... what am I missing?
What happens when you click it? Are you logged into a google account, because I'm pretty sure you have to be to watch it.
