The Pomona6 comes with our genuine speed-pot as tone control. This pot operates at a reduced 70° angle allowing you to create tone swells with your fingertip.

The evolution of the Lapsteel

When introduced back in 2008, the Pomona6 was the Lapsteel that brought our Multibender Bridge System and the ingenious Easy-Shift Capo to the world.

"The minute I picked up the Duesenberg Lapsteel I was hooked.
This is a lapsteel that is a complete joy to play,
even if you've never picked up a slide before."
John Mayer

The new Standard

The Pomona6 set a new standard for Lapsteel Artists around the world.

The integrated "Easy-Shift Capodaster" enables you to adapt to key changes with the turn of a thumb-screw. Simply loosen the screw, place the capodaster where you need it and start playing. It also runs on a rail inside the fretboard so you cannot misplace it. It enables freedom of movement between all keys without sacrificing the typical lapsteel riffs and licks that rely on open strings.

A roller nut provides tuning stability, while Duesenberg LittleToaster pickups deliver a clear and powerful sound that goes excellently well with distortion pedals or distorting amps. And the Duesenberg Speed pot controls work with a path of just 70˚ in order to achieve the lapsteel's typical swelling “wah” effects.

The Mutlibender is an integrated string bending device that can be configured to do a number of different things.

It is used for bending specific strings up or down a semi- or full tone, all done with the heel of your hand while playing. This comes in handy for changing chords from minor to major or all kinds of other intervals. The Multibender takes up to five levers (additional levers available seperately) which can all be set up to do different things.

Nickel Hardware

Most of our hardware is nickel finished.

You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on our instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack.

When compared to regular chrome finishes, nickel has a beautiful warm and elegant sheen and ages naturally over time. It's the way things were done before chrome became the standard. If you don't want the hardware on your instrument to age, we recommend regular cleaning.
