A compact carbon fibre acoustic guitar

Thanks to its short scale length of 597 mm (23.5") and compact form, the LAVA Music ME 2 Freeboost OR is the ideal travel acoustic guitar. The instrument itself is an entirely new concept: Made from carbon fibre and equipped with the unique Freeboost technology, this guitar has some very special features that you won’t find in the same form anywhere else on the market. The carbon fibre construction results in a full and rich sound with plenty of sustain, while providing the high level of strength associated with this material. The Freeboost technology turns the back of the body into a speaker, while adding integrated delay, reverb, and chorus effects. This impressive system is loud enough for playing at room volume, without ever having to plug into an amp! Of course, you can also use the internal L2 pickup to connect to an amplifier, mixer, or similar if you want to use the ME 2 Freeboost OR on stage or in the rehearsal room.

Robust construction

The injection-moulded AirSonic carbon fibre construction is extremely resistant to the elements and can withstand temperatures between -20 and +90 °C, and humidity levels of up to 90% - unthinkable for a guitar made from traditional tonewoods. The extremely thin and resonant top, with the sound hole on its bass side, ensures a clear sonic projection. This is also where you’ll find the USB port, a microphone for picking up percussive playing techniques, and a switch to activate the chorus and delay effects. The controls for the reverb effect, on the other hand, are located on the top panel of the guitar, and include effect level and master volume. And because the Freeboost technology transforms the back of the body into a speaker, the effects can be heard even when not connected to an amplifier.

High-tech steel string acoustic sound

With its extremely sturdy compact carbon construction, a neck that’s been through the PLEK process for improved playability, and its integrated effects, the LAVA Music ME 2 Freeboost OR is recommended for anyone wanting to be treated to a unique guitar experience, both at home and on the go. And, with its intense orange finish, it is certain to be an eye-catcher on stage too. Other impressive features include the elegant aluminium tuners, a TUSQ nut, and a high-pressure laminate bridge which provides tuning stability and great intonation all along the neck. The ME 2 Freeboost OR comes from the factory equipped with a set of high-quality .012 - .053 gauge Elixir strings. You even get a gig bag, perfect for protecting your instrument when you are on the move.

About LAVA Music

LAVA Music is a Chinese brand that develops and builds musical instruments, such as guitars and ukuleles, in a completely new and modern way. The use of moulded and robust materials, for example, enhances durability and weather resistance, and also makes it possible to modify their shapes from those of conventional instruments, which have evolved only slightly over the years. In addition, many instruments from LAVA Music also come with state-of-the-art pick-up systems that exceed the functional range of conventional systems. So, if you are interested in the use of modern techniques in instrument making, LAVA Music is a go-to outfit.

Limitless inspiration

Regardless of whether you are using the ME 2 Freeboost OR in the living room, in your hotel room while on a trip, in the rehearsal room, in the studio, or on stage at a live gig, the possibilities are virtually endless. You’ll be surprised how convincing the AirSonic carbon fibre construction sounds, and it can then further be enhanced by the integrated effects. All this, of course, is possible without ever plugging into an amplifier, thanks to the Freeboost technology. In addition, the "PLEK’d" neck enables effortless chord playability due to the pleasantly low string action, as well as offering soloists easy access to notes in the upper octave.

Génial !
bacoland 07.12.2020
Evaluation après une seule semaine d'utilisation:

+pour une guitare de cette taille le son est vraiment bon et l'ampli intégré permet d'ajouter des effets qui décuple les possibilités sans contrainte !
+sur un vrai ampli le son est très bon aussi, il y a aussi un piezo pour amplifier les sons de percussion que l'on inflige à la guitare ;-)
+mais ça grande force c' est évidemment sa taille, son poids et l'impression d'avoir une guitare incassable: on ne se pose plus la question, "Est-ce que j'amène la guitare ou la poussette ?"

-petit bémol sur la qualité des boutons très "cheap": quelque soucie avec le bouton on/off.
-à ce prix, on aurait aimé une sangle de guitare: surtout qu'il n'est pas facile de trouver une sangle qui va avec !

Achetez sans hésiter si vous recherchez une guitare de voyage !

amazing ... almost
Philisac 10.02.2021
This guitar is quite simply amazing. They have reinvented the concept: new material (carbon), feel, weight, capabilities (effect even available unplugged), and the sound is simply enormous. This guitar breathes a very loud voice on its own, with no effect - imagine plugged in. My guitarist friends have all been amazed by this thing. Ok, not cheap for a carbon shell, but it is so original, new, and fulfilling that I would buy it again 10 times. I also have the e-Uke and it is a similar dream. Must have!!
EDIT after a few months: I almost returned it because the freebost stopped working. Turns out to be the "on-off" knob got too loose and could not switch it on. It is happening regularly but I know what to do now, remove the know and push it back gently. No big deal but ... a bit of a let down. Still sounds amazing though (although the effects ARE kind of weak compared to the great LAG Hyvibe). Reverb/Chorus do feem more massive plugged in. Still, the BIIIIIG advantage here is the carbon fibre: do temperature effect, stays in tune, and it is light as a dove. Still a good buy!!
