Lava Music’s new Lava Me Pro Guitar debuted at the 2019 Shanghai Music Instruments Exhibition and quickly picked up the IDEA design award in the US. Now the portable carbon fibre guitar is being made available to the public, offering acoustic sound quality in a guitar that is a fraction of the size.
The Lava Me Pro is made of AirCarbon, a new structural material that makes up the guitar’s soundboard. This new material provides the strength of carbon fibre layers with the lightweight features of a honeycomb structure. AirCarbon is 30 per cent lighter than standard carbon fibre, but still has the same stiffness, so every pluck of the string will produce a bright, dynamic, and open sound. Those plucks are picked up by the L2 Pro electronic system. This system comes with a built-in preamp, reverb, delay, and chorus. Hit the turbo button, and you’ll pump up both the volume and tone. Plus, the L2 Pro comes with the FreeBoost feature, which frees the player of having to carry around pedals without having to sacrifice any of the effects you rely on. And to eliminate the concern of weather conditions while playing, the Lava Me Pro uses high-density AirSonic for a carbon fibre bar and aluminium structure in the neck. Lava Music collaborated with L.R. Baggs on the guitar to ensure that it would create the highest quality notes.
What the Lava Me Pro offers is professional stage performance sound in a smaller package. The guitar is made of the best components—from the bridge, nut, and saddle to the polymer materials. The guitar is designed and built to transmit every sound vibration. You can pick up the Lava Me Pro on their website for $1,399. The guitar comes with a space-age case that is made of a material that hardens on impact to help protect the guitar.
