Carbon Fiber lends a very different set of features to a guitar. Aside from making it practically unbreakable and possibly quadrupling its lifespan, it lends a unique timbre to the guitar. Carbon fiber’s all-graphite construction brings a crystalline and detailed tone to the guitar while also allowing the instrument to have greater acoustic volume. The result is a better build quality (without glue, braces, or any additional fixtures) as well as a better sound. The LAVA ME PRO guitar comes crafted in a single piece, entirely out of carbon fiber. With a curved single-piece construction that goes from body to fretboard without breaking continuity, the LAVA ME PRO is undoubtedly strong as well as lightweight.
Aside from being a semi-acoustic guitar, the LAVA ME PRO comes with pickups that allow it to function as an electric guitar too. A preamp and pickup control panel sits right at top of the guitar’s body, where the player can fine-tune the sound of the electric signal produced by the guitar. When used acoustically, the guitar produces a crisp and loud sound, courtesy of the carbon fiber build, and an oddly located sound-hole right above the strings… a detail that gives the LAVA ME PRO an instantly memorable aesthetic.
Its semi-acoustic nature gives it the sound of an acoustic guitar with the flexibility of an electric guitar. Knobs on the top allow you to tune your sound to perfection, while the ability to add processors and modules helps your guitar transform from a casual instrument to a powerful guitar made for stage performances. “The novel and high-tech carbon fiber body was inspired by the extremely light but stiff honeycomb structure used in aircrafts. Combining layers of carbon fiber with LAVA’s “Phantom Structure” honeycomb soundboard gives a new dimension to your tone, producing a loud but organic sound with every chord or pluck”, say the LAVA MUSIC team.
The Lava Me Pro Carbon Fiber Guitar is a winner of the iF Product Design Award for the year 2021.
