This guitar was a little beat up upon arrival, but after some much needed TLC she played WONDERFULLY. There is a reason why I love Caparisons so damn much!!
I really adore this guitar. Pardon the clipping, it seems the output was just a touch too hot!
There aren’t enough words to describe the master luthier that Aaron Brown of BWGC is becoming. Just wonderful.
Like I say in the video, I do apologize that this weeks video isn’t up to the expected standard of epicness but I thought it’d be a great idea to get some conversations going about where guitars come from.
We are all so involved in this consumer society, even with guitars, so why not take a second to appreciate what we have and share some stories with people?
All the best to all of you folks who have supported me, here’s to a great and happy holiday season, and to looking forward to 2015!
This review was shot 3 times so that it was done right. I’m very proud of how it turned out. I hope you guys enjoy it. I love picks. PICKS PICKS PICKS. I have had it with jazz III’s though. ENOUGH.
Also, editing this took a work day.
Caparison Guitars make instruments that are meant to be played.
Their higher-end lineup of instruments isn’t for the meek – the price tags are most definitely into the custom guitar territory, but ultimately the quality is absolutely there.
Imagine the Jackson custom shop instruments from the olden days, and that’s Caparison. No, really, the head of Caparison used to have his hand in that shop!
There is a specific reason why Caparisons are my favourite though; the necks are done by hand. Yes that’s right, the necks are hand made. So perhaps the price is justified if the guitar receives so much love and attention before it even hits an owners hands – and boy does it ever show. I fell in love with them in January when I went to the NAMM 2014 show – and my friend Matt Perrin from Threat Signal and Angel Maker also fell in love with them to the point where he got endorsed!
I will be getting one soon. I have been left with no other logical option.
Definitely check out these instruments if you can, or if you are a clever human you will check eBay and capitalize on how cheap some of them are being re-sold for!
