Guitarist Mateus Asato has shared a new minute-long guitar piece on his YouTube channel – this time performed on a rather futuristic-looking acoustic guitar. Take a look above.

The chord melody piece is named LAVA ME, after the carbon-fibre instrument which Asato played in his video. The LAVA ME is an injection-moulded, one-piece acoustic/electric guitar, made out of “AirSonic” – a carbon-fibre material of which many of LAVA Music’s instruments are made from.

On its website, the company wrote that the material was developed with an “exclusive material R&D organisation”, boasting its sound conductivity and overall resilience to extreme weather factors. The futuristic-looking acoustic guitar is touted for its consistency as travel instrument.

“Airsonic will never be affected by the changing of the weather and perform consistently well anytime anywhere.” the company wrote. “[It] represents the next level of material technology and the ideal material for LAVA ME.”

Asato – who regularly uploads guitar content to YouTube – has shared several videos while self-isolating as part of a Quarantine Sessions series, beginning with a chord melody cover of The Beatles’ Let It Be.
