The Caribou is crafted from solid alder, incorporating extra large sound chambers that provide a distinctive and versatile sound suitable for any genre. All models feature an elegant cream binding around the body, a one-piece maple neck, a Duesenberg Cat-Eye F-Hole, and a set of award-winning pickups. The neck position is equipped with the creamy Domino P90, complemented by the classically voiced GrandVintage Humbucker at the bridge, creating an exceptional combination sought after by many.
The middle position of the robust 3-way switch has garnered acclaim for its unique wiring, which filters specific low-end frequencies from the humbucker signal. This results in an open, funky, and highly versatile addition to the range of available tones. Furthermore, the vibrato design of the Caribou ensures smooth action, reliable tuning stability, and effortless string changes.
The Diamond Deluxe Tremelo stands out by offering exceptional tone without compromising on weight. Its vibrato arm benefits from heavy-duty needle and nylon bearings, providing a highly responsive feel unique to Duesenberg guitars. The arm itself can rotate freely for a full 360° and can be adjusted to suit individual preferences for angle and length. The strings are guided effortlessly through holes in the bar beneath the arm-axis, simplifying the process of stringing and leading them to the tuners.
These features have been put to the test and proven reliable on stages worldwide, solidifying the Caribou's reputation as a go-to instrument for professional musicians.
