A unique instrument exceptionally well put together.

07.04.2017
A very unusual instrument part way between lap steel and pedal steel, more versatile than the former, and easier to move around (and much easier to play) than the latter!

Only alternatives are custom built instruments, which are even more expensive that this one!

Very well made ( as are most of Duesenberg's Guitars) and incorporating some neat ideas but still pretty expensive for what it is, but there aren't many alternatives!

Arrived very quickly in perfect condition, accompanied by the case in a separate box !

Laptsteel History

Robo, 05.09.2013
Electric Lapsteels are often a bit under-exposed, simply built, usually just a pickup, etc. The Fairytale is carved out of other wood. No, she is actually a fairy among the lap guitars.

A full instrument with two great PU's, cleanly processed, sounds full and punchy but never harsh.
The integrated Capo is another highlight. The details are also correct, so there are two moss rubber strips on the back against unwanted slipping on the lap.

But the main clou is the multibender.
This allows pedal-like sounds to be generated and the vocal range of a sixstring lap to be extended. I ordered a third lever.
It takes some practice to work with the levers clean. but the whole system is very well thought out like the guitar itself.

So cowboys, pull your steels to the Lapsteel duel.
