The new Fairytale Lapsteel Split/King Edition brings you the evolution of the most advanced Lapsteel available today. The Split/King pickups combine real singlecoil and real humbucker tone into a single pickup. The best of both worlds. Available with just the flick of a switch.

Split/King Pickups

The new Split/King pickups bring you real Humbucker and real Singlecoil tone through a new and innovative coil concept. The best of both worlds at the flick of a switch. The split/king is not the splittable pickup you might expect. The innovative coil concept of extending a real singlecoil to a full humbucker with a fine-tuned seperate coil enables you to access both pickup sounds with the flick of a switch. The split/king actually houses a real, full-size singlecoil pickup that can stand on its own compared to your regular split humbucker. This pickup is the pinnacle of our own component design and delivers a maximum of versatility. It's not just two pickups - it's actually four.


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

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.

Integrated Capodaster

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.

Made to hold something that lasts

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
