Duesenberg Guitars Caribou Electric Guitar (Black) w/ Hard Case
A solid body that features big sound chambers for enhanced tone and weight reduction. Particularly characteristic tone somewhere between a solid and semi-hollow construction.
Features our acclaimed set of the GrandVintage Humbucker and Domino P90 that delivers outstanding clarity, tonal range and versatility in any situation. At home in any genre.
A pleked fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.
THE CREATIVE SPARK
THE CARIBOU IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT. MADE FOR ARTISTS SEEKING THE EXCEPTIONAL.
It is made from solid alder in which we route extra large sound chambers. These sound chambers give the Caribou a uniquely direct, yet open voice that feels at home in any genre.
The body is then fitted with a flat maple top for the Narvik Blue and Black color options and classic swamp-ash for the Butterscotch version. All models feature a classy cream binding around the body and one-piece maple neck, Duesenberg Cat-Eye F-Hole and an award winning set of pickups.
THE DREAM TEAM
DUESENBERG PICKUPS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR DISTINCT, CLEAR AND VERSATILE TONE THAT EASILY CUTS THROUGH THE MIX FROM MELLOW JAZZ TO SUPERCHARGED ROCK.
Our creamy Domino P90 in the neck position and the classically voiced GrandVintage Humbucker at the bridge form an all-around dream team many have tried to replicate.
The acclaimed middle position of the heavy duty 3-way switch features a special wiring that filters certain low-end frequencies out of the humbucker signal. The result is an open, funky and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of tone.
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT GERMAN SILVER
The quality of the components in a pickup is vital when it comes to delivering the best tone possible right from the start. You cannot get back what is lost here. That is why we use a special material called German Silver for the baseplate and cover. It's the only material that does not have a negative effect on frequencies transmitted by the pickup.
We also use a very specific insulated wire that we get from an old German copper wire factory. The coil is wound slowly, simulating a hand winding to give the pickup all the natural imperfections that make it sound great. The result is an extremely wide and defined frequency output that doesn't limit you or what you want to do.
DIAMOND DELUXE TREMOLA
MEET THE VIBRATO SYSTEM THAT HAS CHANGED THE IDEA OF WHAT A CLASSIC DESIGN CAN DO.
Buttery smooth action, reliable tuning stability and string changes that are a breeze are just the main aspects of our unique vibrato design.
The Diamond Deluxe gives you the best tone while being lightweight. Heavy duty needle and nylon bearings give you the highly responsive Duesenberg feel when using the vibrato arm. The arm itself can be turned freely for 360° and can be adjusted to your preferred angle and length. The strings are simply guided through the holes in the bar underneath the arm-axis and can be lead to the tuners without any hassle.
Proven daily on the stages of this world.
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.
