With its instruments made entirely of carbon fiber and HPL, the manufacturer Lava presents a highly developed innovation of modern guitar making. The Lava ME 2 E Black acoustic guitar convinces with an extremely powerful sound that unfolds quickly thanks to its lightweight construction. In addition, the instrument turns out to be the perfect travel companion due to its clever construction and compact design. The flat neck is easy and obliging to grip in all 18 frets. At the same time, the smooth-running die-cast aluminum tuners guarantee precise tuning. Conveniently, the scope of delivery includes an exceptionally robust bag.
Structure and materials
In order for the body to produce the maximum sound experience, it is made of carbon fibers. The robust material allows for a very lightweight construction, which gives the sound a powerful foundation and allows for an almost attack of all notes.
The neck, also made of carbon fiber, guarantees comfortable access to all 18 frets set into a fingerboard made of HPL.
Hardware and design
Clean intonation on the shortened scale of 597 mm is ensured by a compensated bridge insert and a 42.9 mm wide nut made of Graph Tech TUSQ. High-quality die-cast tuners made of aluminum are inserted into the headstock for easy operation. The modern design is emphasized by a generous soundhole in the upper part of the top, which runs parallel to the strings. Below the HPL bridge is an engraving in the form of the company logo, which optimally rounds off the overall appearance in combination with the matte black finish.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art, integrated L2 technology, the Lava ME 2 E Black amplifies itself so that a handsome volume can be produced even without additional electronics. A preamp in the frame allows the player to conveniently adjust the volume.
