The Vorson LT-230-8 is a professional quality 8 String lap steel guitar custom designed by Vorson’s team of player /luthiers for exceptional performance on stage or in the studio. Many elite lap steel players prefer the expanded range of an 8 string that allows you to play fuller chords, and more interesting inversions, because you have more notes under the bar. With 8 strings you also have a wider range across the strings opening up new variations playing scales, runs, and arpeggios. The LT-230-8 features a 30 fret rosewood neck and a solid mahogany body with a deeply quilted maple top and matching headstock. The LT-230-8’s expanded range is powered by Vorson’s exclusive VSY-3+ Tone / Active Electronics and EQ coupled to a custom designed 8 string Master 100 pickup.
Note: The LT-230-8 is not a converted 6 string lap steel and the nut, bridge, fretboard, and pickup are specially designed for 8 string spacing so no cramped strings. If you can play a 6 you can play the Vorson 8, and you will light it up! Available in Translucent Blue, Translucent Red, and Translucent Vintage Sunburst and ships complete with a premium padded bag, tone bar, and cable.
