With a gorgeous quilted maple top and cream-colored FP-90 pickups, the Vorson FLSL-220 lap steel guitar is immediately eye-catching, and the sound that it delivers is just as solid. The FLSL-220 is constructed out of mahogany with a semi-hollow design, giving you a warm, open sound that the FP-90 pickups and VSY-01 active electronics amplify beautifully, singing clearly when played clean, but woolly enough to thicken up nicely when you run it through a dirt pedal.
Active Electronics Deliver Killer Tone
Vorson has loaded the FLSL-220 with killer tone options! The FP-90 pickups accentuate the fullness of the mahogany body wood well, aided by the VSY-01 active circuitry, powered by a 9-volt battery. The active circuit gives you a high-output signal with a fuller frequency range than its passive circuit counterpart. The FLSL-220 also has Vorson's XTR circuit that lets you blend in just the right kind of midrange tone for your sound. Between the two pickups and this unique tone circuit, the FLSL-220 lap steel gives you a wide range of tones that can take you from folk to rock to country and anywhere in between.

Mahogany and Maple Construction
The FLSL-220 is built out of mahogany for the body and neck, which gives a full sound to the guitar. The natural quilted maple top adds a classic shine to the guitar, as the sculpted F-holes and semi-hollow design lend an openness and clarity to the sound. Vorson has made a lap-steel guitar that's made for professional use, but is priced at a point that any player can afford, whether you're a beginner looking for an instrument that will last, or an advanced performer looking to diversify your collection.
