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.
