Re: Caparison

I've played on both, but not for a long time. I think they were good, although I've been playing Ibanez for a long time. I know there are some Caparison players in the Malmö area. You could contact Fredrik Pihl http://www.fredrikpihl.cjb.net/ I think he'd love to talk about Caparisons.

Re: Caparison

Haven't tried the Apple Horn but I did own a Horus for a very brief bit of time. Plays great, the pickups on it are actually not that bad. Just never got used to the switching system. (mine had that push pull volume to select pickups). Quite frankly if I was to ever get another 27 fret guitar it would have to be the Kiko Loureiro signature model by ESP or even the Edwards version of it.

I love that guitar, I would love to have one........or an Apple Horn Sandstone, I think it would be nice to have one signature guitar of my "GOD" Mattias IA Eklundh !!! =D

I've played on three of IA's own guitars, they all felt the same, atleast to me. I've heard the pickups was so-so, but Caparison deliver the guitars with other pickups now than before, still it's not the same dual blade neck pickup that IA uses. Fun guitars, but you should use the tremolo a lot to justify buying a IA model.
