The smart acoustic guitar

Hot on the heels of the success enjoyed by its existing carbon fibre guitars, LAVA Music now presents its third generation of acoustic instruments, which have been revised from the ground up and now feature an improved construction for the top and a higher level of rigidity while maintaining the same weight. These instruments also feature LAVA's FreeBoost 2.0 technology which, as with the previous series, turns the body of the guitar into its own speaker and allows it to be played without the need for amplifiers or pedals. A new feature, however, is the multi-touchscreen recessed into the guitar's upper shoulder, which provides access to a range of different apps including effects, a tuner, a metronome, a looper, a recording function, and a virtual guitar tutor that provides help in learning chords and scales. The scope of delivery also includes a LAVA "Ideal Bag" carrying case. Welcome to the future!

Robust and inspiring

The LAVA Music ME 3's AirSonic carbon fibre construction is highly resistant to changes in the environment and can withstand temperature fluctucations of -20 to +90°C as well as humidity levels of up to 90% - attributes that would be unthinkable for a conventional wooden guitar. The third generation of LAVA's ME series continues to deliver the same powerful and balanced basic sound with a volume level that will easily suit home practice with more to spare. And while the previous generation restricted players to just three effects, the LAVA ME 3 sets entirely new boundaries with its choice of effects and the extensive range of options available via the colour touchscreen. What is more, the FreeBoost technology has undergone some enhancements and now provides a fuller low end and thus a more intensive sonic experience.

High-tech inside

With its compact and robust carbon fibre construction and the expanded range of options mentioned above, the new LAVA ME 3 is ideal for musicians looking to enjoy its unique sound and cutting-edge enhancements both at home and on the go. But that is not all: This eyecatching instrument with its "Space Grey" finish will also cut a fine figure on stage, where its smooth-action aluminium alloy machine heads and high-pressure laminate bridge will also ensure reliable tuning stability and accurate intonation in every register. The version of the ME 3 shown here has a 36" (597mm) scale length and a nut width of 42.9mm, which makes the neck slightly shorter and narrower than that of the 38" version. The guitar comes complete with an Ideal Bag carrying case, which provides a high level of protection and makes the instrument easy to transport.

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.

Inspiring sounds

Living room, hotel room, rehearsal room, recording studio, or stage: All one and the same to the LAVA Music ME 3. This new version of the ME takes a quantum leap forward from where its predecessor left off and opens up a virtually limitless range of possibilities. The instrument's robust AirSonic carbon fibre construction and unique FreeBoost technology have been enhanced yet again, but the real highlight is the guitar's integrated touchscreen display, which gives the player access to a wide range of effects and apps and thus provides a huge increase in flexibility for playing, jamming, and learning.

It is both great and a disappointment
StefanVe 03.01.2023
I admit I did not spend much time with the guitar before deciding to return it, but I knew immediately that I would never love it. Why? Hard to say, but while it is fun to have smart guitar with all-you -need built in, I first and foremost wan't a guitar that feels good to play. The sound is... okay I guess, but it is not really "lively" so to speak. The bass is also resonant in a, for me, strange way. Like as if it gets stuck in there and when it eventually comes out it is more like a moaning than a balanced bass tone.

It also felt stiff to play, partly because the setup was not worthy of a €1099 guitar. The nut was way too high, probably the saddle too. I know - relatively easy fixes, but I did not feel it would change the fact that it felt pretty boring, subdued.

The "smart" part is really good though, many of the effects sounded great and I'm sure that it can inspire many, but a lot of it was aimed at other people than me who basically bought it for the looper and some delay.

I do wonder if it is "too" smart though. It annoyed me greatly that I had to create an account with an unknown entity before even get the guitar "started". Am I suppose to store my ideas somewhere in China with very little on terms of promises that only I are in charge of how it is used? I'm not really paranoid and I doubt I will create anything worth stealing, but I still want to choose where to store my ideas. I guess it is a good idea, in these times, to share and "like" snippets in a community, but I do not think Lava have identified their target group correctly when they combined a high end guitar with a social media platform.

As a conclusion I'd say it is a decent guitar, but it is not great. The smart features are a wild mixture useful, silly and TikTok. I also don't understand why they bothered to put the touch display, the little computer with its OS and app, on the guitar when they could have just moved that out into a normal phone app. With its bluetooth and WiFi, everything on that touch screen could have been controlled by a normal smartphone.
