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.
Duesenberg pickups are known for their distinct, clear and versatile tone that easily cuts through the mix from mellow jazz to supercharged rock.
Duesenberg’s 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.
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.
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.
The fretboard is to your music, what the handle of a brush is to a painting.
It says a lot about an instrument how much care was taken here. Every single Duesenberg instrument is expertly pleked for buzz-free playability all throughout the fretboard. It is then carefully finished by hand and precisely set up by one of Duesenberg’s professional luthiers. The luthier responsible also leaves his or her signature inside the instrument. This is all Duesenberg’s promise to you that a Duesenberg instrument will always feel great in your hands.
