    I'm also curious about the sound and will admit I've never played a Duesenberg. They certainly look great.

    Sweet! Welcome to the club. Though I've never played a regular Duesy guitar.

    Ohhhh my.......Now I really see a real reason for selling my Gibson Firebird. It won't offset the price but put a decent chunk into it.

    I love this guitar. Congratulations!!!

    Have you seen the Falken? Kind of a Duesy spin on a Firebird with Gretsch touches.

    Thank you Guys ! :)

    Actually, the deal was that : my local Music Shop had to pay me for many amp repairs and guitar electronics rebuilt :oops:, so my pal the Boss Francky and I made a calculation and he said : "well, I can order a Duesenberg Caribou LH for you and sell it at half the thomann.de price, so it would both settle my repair bill and make you afford that guitar you drool in front of since 2014, when it was not even issued in LH... :D"

    At 1250 Euros - that is to say much less than the cost of a basic LH US Std. Fender Strat or Tele (1700-1800 euros) - It was reachable for me, so I said OK :cool:.

    Anyway, never would I have spent a 2500-2600 euros amount on a guitar - moreover new.o_O

    Tomorrow 's weather is foggy - at least this morning - so no possibility of good pictures... :(

    Looking at the paraphernalia papers coming with the guitar, I discovered that they are lifetime guaranteed to the 1st owner (oooh... :rolleyes:) and they have been "processed by CNC Plek machine" (aaah... :rolleyes:) , according to the certificate enclosed with the guitar :

    The 1/43 scale Duesenberg type J, made by Solido, in France, in the late 70s - early 80s, of nearly the same colors...
