SKU:  ae00-1164
Manufacturer Part #:  DLSFTGB

From Duesenberg:


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 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



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 thumb screw 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 Fairytale comes fitted with one of our hum-cancelling Singletwin Domino P90's in the neck position and our versatile and classically voiced GrandVintage humbucker in the bridge position. With the Domino delivering a warm and fat tone and the GrandVintage taking care of the cutting leads you are well set for everything that might come your way. For easy to do tone swells, we have also fitted the Fairytale with our special short range speed pot that works on a 70° angle.



You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on our instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack. When compared to regular chrome finishes, nickel has a beautiful warm and elegant sheen and ages naturally over time. It's the way things were done before chrome became the standard. If you don't want the hardware on your instrument to age, we recommend regular cleaning.



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 mos trealistic 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.
