LAVA ME 3 is the 3.5-inch multi-touch display, making the guitar as intuitive as your average smartphone.
Along with a colour display comes the HILAVA control system supporting a range of useful apps that allow players to access functions such as tuner, metronome, effects pedal, looper pedal and recorder without connecting an external device.
This guitar comes with a raft of effects, including standards like reverb, delay, auto-wah, chorus, octaver and doubler, but also algorithms for modern electronic genres.
The parameters can be adjusted right down to the smallest detail, so these aren’t just ready-made presets that can’t be changed.
The recorder in particular sounds like an incredibly useful feature for songwriting. No need to reach for a recorder or root around for a cable to hook up to your DAW; I really like the sound of that.
