Pomona 6 Lapsteel

Who would have thought that anyone could improve on – let alone revolutionize – a solid concept like the lapsteel? Only Duesenberg! As is well known, out of the classic lapsteel came the pedalsteel, whereby a player influences the pitch of individual strings through the use of levers and pedals. Country music is practically unthinkable without pedalsteel, while lapsteel – the most widely distributed type of electric guitar in the 40s and ‘50s – still crops up on occasion in certain musical niches. 

But that might soon change, because the Duesenberg Pomona 6 combines the best of both lapsteel and pedalsteel in one simple to use instrument with fat sound and – thanks to the Duesenberg Multibender System – lever-adjustable string tension that can produce typical pedal steel sounds!

The freely configurable Multibender is operated with the heel of the hand. Up to six levers (one per string) are mountable. Furthermore the integrated capo, which runs along a track on the aluminum fretboard, enables freedom of movement between all keys without sacrificing the typical lapsteel riffs and licks that rely on open strings. A roll nut provides tuning stability, while Duesenberg Little Toaster pickups deliver a clear and powerful sound that goes excellently well with distortion pedals or distorting amps. And: Duesenberg Speed pot controls work with a path of just 70˚ (normally it would be 180˚) in order to achieve the lapsteel’s typical swelling “wah” effects. 

Duesenberg lapsteel guitars come with Duesenberg DSL 16 strings (016 – 018 – 126 – 036 – 046 – 056), which are also available at all Duesenberg retailers or through our online shop. Standard factory tuning is D-A-D-F#-A-D.
