The Kauer Banshee Deluxe retains the same neck thru construction that makes the Banshee so unique, but adds a maple top for a distinct sonic flavor. Measuring ¼” thick in the middle and 1/8” on the wings, it imparts a bite and tightness not heard in the standard Banshee and pairs especially well with humbucking pickups. Nonetheless, the body maintains the thin dimensions, comfortable contours and lively response of its namesake. If this isn’t exactly the Banshee you are looking for, feel free to contact us for a custom order to spec one out exactly to your liking!
What Do We Think?
The vowel just sits in the right place on these Deluxe Banshees. No matter where you play on the fretboard, you are rewarded with clarity and a beautiful vocal response in the notes. The Spanish Mahogany body is vibrant and resonant, and that Maple cap focuses the Wolfetone KauerBuckers to perfection.
For those familiar with the Wolfetone lineup, the Kauerbucker bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the Legend and the neck pickup is slightly underwound to keep the mids nice and open in the mahogany body. They utilize fully-charged Alnico II magnets for a tone that is vintage at heart but with just the right touch of heat. The bridge pickup can really sizzle with the gain cranked but maintains a classic feel and composure all the way.
This guitar features a sleek master volume / master tone configuration to keep you rocking all night long without fuss. And there’s just no way to do the sparkle finish justice in photos. Doug honestly does one of the best sparkle finishes in the industry. His custom mix of metallic flake size makes the finish absolutely dance under the light.
How Does It Play?
Incredible. Doug PLEKs the necks on his guitars and the results are undeniable. Of course, the entire guitar displays expert craftsmanship that all comes together the moment you pick it up. We don’t usually set guitars up this low, but this beauty plays at 4/64” on the low E at the 12th fret and 3/64” on the high E without buzz. The medium C neck profile is incredibly comfortable as well. Speaking for ourselves, we wouldn’t change a thing!
