with a 3-way flip switch. The neck is a maple/rosewood Mighty Mite bolt on with a custom "Lehmann Whoosh" headstock. The back and

CSN. LEHMANN LANCE, 2009, used. HSC. $1550.
picture | picture | picture | picture | picture | picture
| picture | picture | picture | picture
This revolutionary design with all solid wood, bent side construction creates a 4 pound electric wonder! Fitted with a split coil soap-bar
Kent Armstrong pickup, a surprising variety of tones can be produced. There is plenty of volume to play acoustically, and the unique
spruce "cylinder top" makes The Lance extremely comfortable to hold. The back and sides are Lacewood, and the tailpiece
is chromed brass.  TKL hard shell case.

This model has a 25.5" string length, and the body width at the lower bout is 13". It is fit with a bolt on neck with a rosewood
fingerboard with mother of pearl lightning inlays. The tuning machines are light weight Kluson style.

This guitar was the prototype model and has developed several top cracks that are repaired.  Subsequent models used a less stressful
top radius which has solved this issue.
