Duesenberg Caribou

Duesenberg Caribou

The Duesenberg Caribou is a chambered, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring a Cat Eye F-Hole and a 647mm scale. It is also available as a 12-string edition.

The Caribou is made from solid Alder in which we route large sound chambers. The body is then fitted with a flat maple top featuring a modern Cat Eye F-Hole. The large sound chambers make this construction a crossover between a solidbody and a semi-hollow construction, resulting in a unique tonal character and resonance.

The Caribou is fitted with well proven Duesenberg pickup combination, comprising of the classicly wound GrandVintage humbucker for the bridge and the warm and creamy Domino P90 singlecoil. The middle position of both pickups features a special wiring, which splits certain low end frequencies out of the humbucker’s signal. Resulting in an open and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of sounds. The Caribou 12-string edition is equipped with two Domino P90 singlecoils.

All Duesenberg instruments are fitted with their own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. They design it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack plates.

All fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for. Additionally, with their Diamond Deluxe Tremola proved to be one of the best of its kind. Providing buttery operation and outstanding tuning stability.

The Caribou is available in Stardust, Narvik Blue and a high-gloss Black. The 12-string edition is available in high-gloss Black only.
