If Duesenberg designed a surfboard, its look would surely be far from ordinary, even though you could still catch the perfect wave with it. However, with the Duesenberg Caribou you still can catch the perfect wave – an outstanding fresh and new guitar design in color to match the theme - Cyan Green.
Needing also a sound that could live up to the guitar’s great California looks, Duesenberg designed pickups specifically for it. Single Twin singlecoil pickups deliver sparkling sounds reminiscent of the sun on the waves of the Pacific – without any hum to interfere with this impression! For a more powerful sound, the familiar Grand Vintage humbucker sits at the bridge.
The three-pickup-circuit is clear and practical. Duesenberg’s multi-pot brings in the signal of the middle pickup, which in interaction with the three-way toggle switch results in six different sounds. Surfing has never been more awesome than with the Caribou!
