An authentic reproduction of the original Cadillac guitar. The Dean Cadillac 1980 electric guitar is inspired by the Dean guitar that has graced stages for decades in the hands of many legendary guitarists. Its mahogany body and set mahogany neck deliver exceptional sustain with a rich, warm tone, whilst the ebony fingerboard enhances clarity and beautifully contrasts the Classic White finish.
The sealed die-cast locking tuners that decorate each side of the signature Dean headstock ensure incredible tuning stability and intonation with the Tune-O-Matic hardtail bridge. Black speed knobs and black chrome hardware provide classic, functional aesthetics. To top it all off, the Cadillac 1980 is loaded with a pair of DMT Design high-output humbuckers that deliver a truly immense tone.

Loaded with two DMT Designed pickups in the bridge and neck position, this Dean Cadillac guitar delivers a powerful and punchy tone with plenty of bottom end and sparkling highs. Perfect for a range of playing styles and music genres, the DMT Designed humbuckers are extremely versatile and particularly excel when used for hard rock and metal.
Mahogany is a fairly dense tonewood which creates warm and rich tone with excellent depth. It also offers durability and a tone which will mature over the years, making this guitar a long lasting investment. A mahogany body is the popular wood of choice for punchy rock music, which makes it perfect for this Cadillac guitar.
The Cadillac shape features a large, V-shaped headstock, which offers higher string angles and string length which ultimately contributes to the overall resonance. The mahogany, C-shaped neck allows faster playing and is designed to fit into your hands more comfortably. The Cadillac 1980 model features an ebony fingerboard which offers a very responsive, bright and snappy attack, working well with the warmth of the mahogany.
The classic Cadillac body shape has appeared on stages and in videos over the past two decades. This guitar is destined to stand out with its bright white finish and contrasting black chrome hardware.
