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!!
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.
What a dream of a guitar and what fantastic pair of pickups. DiMarzio really nailed it this time, with a highly versatile and dynamic tonality from either pickup. The neck Titan felt a little lower in volume on the clean setting but the guitar wasn’t perfectly set up as I was too busy playing it to notice at first.
This video is one of my most beautiful, I think, and so I must thank Mr. Atlantis one more time for providing me with a second angle which definitely was inspiring to work with!
REALLY excited about this guitar – it sounds like everything I want it to. Through my ENGL Powerball it sounds like Itaru trapped a demon inside of this guitar. Unbelievable.
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!
