The fairytale lapsteel is one of the most desired instruments for lapsteel artists around the world. Its innovation on countless aspects from the integrated capo nut down to the versatile multibender bridge system leaves this lapsteel without competition.
The GrandVintage Humbucker in the bridge position delivers a cutting and balanced tone while the hum-cancelling SingleTwin P90 in the neck position is perfectly suited for smooth and warm melodies.
The Duesenberg Multibender Bridge System is a user-configurable tone bending device for harmoic up- and down-bends. It can take up to five levers that can be used to modulate chords and melodies.
The Fairytale comes with our genuine speed-pot as tone control. This pot operates at a reduced 70° angle allowing you to create tone swells with your fingertip.
The Multibender is an integrated string bending device that can be configured to do a number of different things. It is used for bending specific strings up or down a semi- or full tone, all done with the heel of your hand while playing. This comes in handy for changing chords from minor to major or all kinds of other intervals. The Multibender takes up to five levers (additional levers available seperately) which can all be set up to do different things.
The integrated easy-shift capodaster makes key changes on a lapsteel a breeze. Just loosen the thumbscrew on top of the capo, place it wherever you need it on the fretboard and tighten the screw again. The easy-shift capo runs on a rail inside the fretboard so that losing or misplacing it is impossible.
A good case is one that's more sturdy than what's inside.Handsome, laid-back and simply a good place for your instrument. Meet the Duesenberg custom line cases. True flightcase quality, classically shaped, beautifully handcrafted and made to endure the most realistic and unrealistic abuses. It's a case you can just throw in the back of a car, train or airplane and won't have to worry about. This instrument comes including the Duesenberg Custom Line Case as standard.
"The minute I picked up the Duesenberg Lapsteel I was hooked. This is a lapsteel that is a complete joy to play, even if you've never picked up a slide before." - John Mayer
