The new
Split/King Pickup

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.

It's not just two pickups - it's actually four.

Duesenberg Fairytale Lapsteel Splitking Edition Easy-Shift Capodaster

INTEGRATED CAPODASTER

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.
