Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

Hopefully it will be here by the end of next week. I can't wait.

This is the one I've been eying from that Japan buyer (meestursparkle). Or one of his anyways. Gorgeous!

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

Not the same one. But the same seller. He got it for me privately but he forgot I originally wanted gold hardware so he ended up listing it on E-Bay and was trying find me another one with gold hardware. The auction was up for like an hour or less and I saw it and said F the gold hardware give me that one. After I saw the pictures of it I fell in love with it. The finish looks spectacular. He always has like 10 caps for sale as well as a bunch of other high end stuff. Really good guy to deal with. He ran all over Tokyo trying to find me what I wanted for a couple of days.

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

I reckon that gold hardware would ruin the look of that one anyway.
I like the finish on it as it is.

Mind you i pretty much hate the look of gold hardware on anything, you won't find me playing a 7Vwh any time soon!

Nice score, congrats

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

Very nice score dude!

I've always fancied getting a Caparison myself. A TAT to be precise.

Awesome guitar! I just bought a yellow horus and it has quickly become one of my favorites. Congrats!

I think you will be pleasantly surprised. You may not like the bridge pickup, but that is an easy remedy.

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

Oh I don't think I will be surprised at all. I know it's gonna be awesome. I have actually been trying to decide on a bridge pickup for a couple of hours now. Any suggestions? I am thinking of either a JB, D-Sonic, Tone Zone in black/creme Zebra. I would really like a Bareknuckle warpig but $160 for a pickup is a lot when I could get a Duncan or a Dimarzio for like $60. I need something that can stay tight for heavy riffing and can also be articulate for cleans.

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

Yeah, the PH-R's are really good.

JB will probably sound really nice, or any of the Duncan Customs.

Re: Another guy with a Caparison on the way.

That guitar is awesome. I'm not so big on the finish but the shape and headstock are great!


I was wondering what do you think about the playability? I played a Dellinger II-HGS and I thought it wasn't that great. To be honest though, it's supposed to be tuned to B and it could be that the store techs weren't accustomed to setting up a guitar like that, Japanese techs aren't alwyas flexible.
