Product Description

Here's what Duesenberg say about the Fairytale Lapsteel guitar:

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.


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.


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.


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.

Mr Will Helton12th Dec 2023

This is a great instrument. The sound potential is almost limitless due to the split humbucker configuration. And with the 2 string benders, it's possible to mimic a range of steel guitar sounds as well. I'm really pleased with my Duesenberg and can't wait to play it at my next gig.

Lovely instrument. It's that resonant, I can practice without an amp in my living room.
