The ROYALE™ addresses the performance shortcomings of this great design. The sides and the center block are made from one piece of wood, rather than two sides and the center block. This creates a more rigid structure to mount the neck, top, and back into. The result is uncommon attack and sustain, without sacrificing the rich, full tone. It’s more like a solid body with incredible tone and warmth or fullness.
The compact size reduces the tendency to resonate and steal energy from the string. Duncan Designed™ pickups insure a professional balance of tone, clarity, and power.
