This is the premise of every guitar setup we undertake. If that means rejecting guitars and starting again - that is exactly what we do.
No Time To Watch the Videos? Here Is the Summary...
If you have bought a guitar before you will know all too well that not every guitar feels or plays the same. You may also know that due to the nature of the major component of the guitar (wood) that they can feel great one moment and awful the next (say for example after traveling half way around the globe on a boat - from some factory in the far east to the UK!)
Richards Guitars offers a unique service offering the more discerning/knowledgeable buyer a host of "players benefits" which will ensure that ANY guitar purchased will give you years of enjoyment - regardless of the price paid. I can demonstrate that a guitar purchased from Richards Guitars will...

Over the past 20 years I have worked hand in hand with suppliers, reporting back with fault "trends" and ways to improve products supplied to us. Companys I have dealt with have been listening intently over the years and we know what value our input has brought to their brands.
To summarise, a guitar supplied by Richards Guitars will not just feel like a new guitar, it will feel like YOUR guitar.

LAVA ME 3 Smartguitar Reimagined
Intuitive. Creative. Powerful. This smart carbon fiber guitar is designed to be the best companion of your musical adventure. With a multi-touch display, the HILAVA OS and incredible apps, LAVA ME 3 will reinvent the way you make music.
Sound, tech, and design come together in this state-of-the-art instrument. After years of dedication, LAVA MUSIC is proud to present a modern addition to our product line and to the guitar family. Presenting new features, design and accessories, the LAVA ME 3 promises to impress.
Multi Touch Screen & HILAVA System
The most impressive and unique guitar innovation to date. LAVA ME 3 utilizes a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a trademarked HILAVA system. The LAVA ME 3 has effects, loops, Wi-Fi connectivity, recording, and even a practice feature built into the guitar. All of the features can be used without being plugged in to an amp or power supply.
A wide variety of effects can now be used & altered using the touchscreen. LAVA MUSIC’ s sound engineers developed a series of sounds and effects that contain not only all of the standard Reverb, Delay, Auto-wah, Chorus, Octave, and Doubler, but also effects more widely heard in modern electronic/digitally produced music. Users can also alter the parameters of each effect down to the smallest detail.
Learning the guitar is easier, more intuitive, and quicker with the practice feature on the LAVA ME3. Customizable lessons can be built whether it be scales, chords, or ear training. Increase accuracy, speed, and style with the guitar and nothing else. Chord Transition, Strumming, Scales, Ear Training or Single Note.
A favorite of the LAVA Team, the loop feature allows the user to play and record along to drum beats from Rock to RnB, Hip Hop, Jazz, EDM, Bossa Nova, and Dubstep. The loops can then be saved, uploaded, and edited after being recorded. Tempo, time signature, and duration can all be edited with the intuitive HILAVA System.
LAVA + is the new app downloadable on IOS or Android systems. A community of global guitarists can now easily communicate, share music, and track each other's improvements over time. The APP connects directly with the players’ personal LAVA ME 3 giving them various information from time played, data space, and specific guitar specs.
Our newest carbon fiber composite. The material is 30% more resistant than the previous generation and is durable under different temperature and humidity conditions.
The renowned PLEK Pro machine cuts the frets of LAVA ME 3 to 0.01mm accuracy, allowing exceptional comfort and sound quality.
The breakthrough 4-MASS design technology ensures harmonious vibration of the soundboard, body, neck and the air inside the guitar, greatly enhancing the resonance.
