      Dean Cadillac 1980 Electric Guitar (511854)

Take a ride with a classy Caddy.

The Dean Cadillac 1980 is a sweet reproduction of the original Cadillac, which has appeared on stages for decades as the trusted axe of many rock legends. With a mahogany body and set-in mahogany neck, it's no surprise players chose the great tone and sustain the original Cadillac offered. Block pearloid inlays grace the rosewood fingerboard, and the gold hardware and multi-ply binding provide the class you'd expect from a guitar labeled Cadillac. Uses Grover Rotomatic tuners for spot-on intonation. Two covered high-output humbuckers provide singing tone that make this guitar just as awesome now as it was when Carter was handing the White House over to Reagan.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by Tyler Belisle on 1/3/2008

    I recently became a proud owner of this guitar and I must say just within 5 minutes of playing it I had no doubt in my mind this what my paycheck was going towards so I ran straight to the counter and paid for this beast. Basically what caught me was how good it just felt. It fit like a glove ina sense and it was just the right size so you can just shred like crazy but isn't to thin where your just gonna be going out of control. Plus it also keeps itself in tune and everything. Its got a great look cause i'm just a fan of black and or white with gold hardware so it was exciting for me. But I was told the pick ups were not to hot but they seemed a lot better than what I was told but I'm still changing out the pick ups though so I can make it have the perfect tone for me but all in all this guitar is amazing and I'd recommended it to anybody looking to play a variety of music and styles.

    My first guitar and I couldn't be happier. Worth the price. This guitar looks and sounds on fire. The sounds are very crisp and clean. Rock on Dean!
