What is Lava Drops?

Lava Drops are handcrafted electric guitars developed by a team of artists, musicians, designers, and engineers to bring limited-edition guitars to the market for a fair price. The sound quality of these electric guitars is superior due to their cutting-edge design.

Each guitar is made from one piece of wood in either Sapele wood, Maple wood, or Merbau wood. The latter wood was chosen based on its dependability and reliability as wood used on ships to withstand harsh conditions. With Lava Drops expertise, each piece is designed and nurtured by hand for a long-lasting and beautiful finish.

Each of the model X guitars is also embedded with a piece of stiffened volcanic lava in the inlays. Since these guitars are so exclusive, creator Rapolas Grazys, an industrial designer and musician, says Lava Drops will only create 100 guitars.

What makes Lava Drops unique is its design. Grazys designed the guitars based on actual raindrops to make them not only ergonomically shaped for the musician, but aesthetically beautiful. To balance out the solid wood, Lava Drops contoured each piece of the X model with aircraft aluminum.

Keeping with the naturalistic theme, the body core wood rings are composed of Mahogany wood, Maple wood, Merbau wood, and Ebony wood. You can expect quality sound as well as an impressive instrument to cherish for years to come.

Lava Drops uses cutting-edge technology, such as laser MIDI technology that can be used with a computer, pedal, or synthesizer for the best sound. Compose new music with an exclusive Lava Drop electric guitar.

The handcrafted guitars are available in three editions: Lava Drop +, Lava Drop -, and Lava Drop X. Each guitar is unique in shape and sound and brings forth that sound to capture audiences.
