Duesenberg Fairytale Lapsteel Split / King Edition

New for 2021 , Duesenberg has introduced the Fairytale Lapsteel Split / King Edition , which is an evolution of the original Fairytale Lapsteel .
The new coil concept of extending a real single-coil to a full humbucker with a fine-tuned separate coil enables the player to access both pickup sounds with the flick of a switch . The Split / King houses a real , full-size single-coil pickup that can stand on its own compared to a regular split humbucker . Duesenberg ’ s Multibender Bridge System is a user-configurable tone bending device for harmonic up and down bends . It can take up to five levers that can be used to modulate chords and melodies . The Fairytale Split / King comes with the company ’ s genuine speed pot as tone control . This pot operates at a reduced 70-degree angle , allowing the player to create tone swells with their fingertip .
