Dead Cadillac

Dead Cadillac

The Dean Cadillac is an interesting guitar. I get the feeling that Gene Simmons would enjoy this guitar if it had a big star on the end of the lower horn of the guitar… But that’s just my opinion.

It’s a beautiful looking instrument, and no doubt the 3 humbucker option really has a beautiful range of sounds.

I like the headstock on these.

The only guitar of the bunch that’s not a set neck is the X, shown above. It’s also the only one with dot inlays.

Damn the black with gold hardware sure looks nice doesn’t it?

I’m pretty sure I’d still go for the 2 humbucker version though.. What would you choose?
