Speed Pot

The Alamo comes with our genuine speed-pot as tone control. This pot operates at a reduced 70° angle allowing you to create tone swells with your fingertip.

Yes, please.

Duesenberg lapsteels are not only famous for their distinctive and clear tone but also the many features that make your life as a lapsteel artist so much easier.

Talking about easy, the integrated "Easy-Shift Capodaster" enables you to adapt to key changes with the turn of a thumb-screw. Simply loosen the screw, place the capodaster where you need it and start playing. It also runs on a rail inside the fretboard so you cannot misplace it.

Totally new.

The Alamo is the first Duesenberg Lapsteel to feature true and specially designed singlecoils. They deliver the raw, transparent and characteristic tone that breaks up beautifully once you turn up the volume.
These pickups are housed underneath our unique "Phonico" pickup covers providing the Alamo with an original look that will turn heads.


The freely configurable Multibender is operated with the heel of the picking hand. Up to five levers can be mounted, which allow you to either raise or lower the notes on the individual strings to a preset pitch. Artists around the world love to use the Multibender to modulate chords, like from major to minor, adding a dominant seven or anything else imaginable.

Nickel Hardware

Most of our hardware is nickel finished.

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.
