A word from Duesenberg about the Fairytale
The Fairytale is a solid mahogany body, dual pickup Lapsteel Guitar, featuring an integrated capodaster and our brilliant Multibender bridge system. It is the next generation Lapsteel guitar, sporting some improvements over our Pomona 6 Lapsteel introduced in 2008.
We are proud to introduce our new Duesenberg Fairytale lapsteel with Goldburst finish and many improved details, like the newest generation of the Duesenberg Multibender, the integrated capodaster, a new pickup combination with the new PH-90 hum-cancelling singlecoil and our Grand Vintage humbucker.
The freely configurable Multibender is operated with the heel of the hand. Up to six levers (one per string) are mountable, which allow you to either raise or lower the notes on the individual strings to a preset setting.
Furthermore the integrated improved capo, which runs along a track on the anodized black aluminum fretboard, enables freedom of movement between all keys without sacrificing the typical lapsteel riffs and licks that rely on open strings.
A roll nut provides tuning stability, while the Duesenberg Grand Vintage humbucker and the PH90 hum-cancelling singlecoil deliver great tone and transparency in any situation. And the Duesenberg Speed pot controls work with a path of just 70˚ in order to achieve the lapsteels typical swelling wah effects.
The Fairytale is available in a gorgeous Goldburst finish.
We would be happy to make yours.
