NOAHguitARS conceives the Lap Steel guitar as a natural completion of its aluminum hardshell musical instruments offer.
The project has been in progress for a few years, necessary to develop a both original and reassuring creation.
Completely milled out from a unique piece of aluminum alloy, Lap Steel project fully embraces NOAH vision:
traditional shapes joined to innovative challenges offer to musicians to augment solution ranges, and new inspiration opportunities.
With this model, an interesting interpretation is offered to the musician: the hollowed body and neck turn in to reactive components of the vibrant instrument.
The magnetic amplification system is characterized by the pick up selection, which have a different behavior then being on a wood guitar body.
The guitar is “alive”, but still extremely under control. The wise and reasoned choices about the electronic parts allows to obtain
a great variety of tonal nuances with just a few selection options. This ease of application offers the musician considerable expression freedom.
The 25" length of the diapason scale allows the tuning on lower and deeper registers than traditional ones.
Strings thickness has been chosen to retain the best known registers as well.
Lastly, through the use of CNC technology, it was possible to realize some parts usually delegated to existing models on the market, as bridge and nut.
NOAHguitARS has been able to look for its own original solutions, as a true single producer of its kind.
Noah LAP STEEL is a project made by NOAHguitARS in convergency with Max Pontrelli. Master Builder: Marco Pancaldi.
