What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

We're always happy to see a Duesenberg walk through our door and the Caribou is a prime example of why! The retro stylings on an amazing offset body make this guitar stand out in any crowd, and the chambered body will make sure it's heard clearly too. A slim D neck + the Deluxe Tremola make this a dream to play while the HSS layout (made ONLY in 2013!) gives you total tonal control and plenty of room to work with. If you haven't experienced a Duesenberg yet, there's no better starting point than the Caribou!

SP Luthier Notes: Fret Dress & Setup

Manufacturer's Description from Duesenberg


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.

About Manufacturer

Duesenberg Guitars exploded on the scene a few years ago and have been turning heads ever since. These days everyone is playing a Duesey, from Mike Campbell to Bob Dylan to Ronnie Wood. The build quality and price-point are hard to argue with. Here at Sound Pure we always have a healthy stock of Duesenbergs and are happy to special order if our inventory does not suit your needs.

In a unique way Dieter Goelsdorf's Duesenberg design consolidates guitar construction, features and sounds which have written music history. The art deco style design of headstock, pickguard and metal components gives Duesenberg its own eye-catching look, while the body design bases on the old traditional Jazz guitars like being built from the 40s in Europe and in the USA. These design elements are combined with the best possible electric guitar construction values of the 50s: Grand Vintage Alnico pickups, classical Fender scale length plus a Gibson-like fingerboard radius. Most of the vintage-style tailpieces, bridges, tremolos, pickups and controls come with greatly improved details. The light weight plus comfortable position of controls of these stage and studio guitars provide a distinctive playing performance and handling for the most demanding player.
