Caparison Madness (56k...just give up now!)

So 2 weeks ago, The Apple Horn arrived...



Then a week ago, the Horus THUNDER Cloud...



Now! For the first time ever (least for the one I own)...

The MIGHTY Caparison TAT Special Amber!

Mere packaging shall not deter me from my new Caparison!



annnnnd there she is...



Beyond gorgeous



Sexy from behind as well



Mahogany body w/ maple top, neck through, 27 frets, ebony board and DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and a Tone Zone S in the neck.



Enjoy the pics, I'm gonna go do some shredding now.

Thanks go to Nick @ The Axe Palace for the TAT Special.

Re: Caparison Madness (56k...just give up now!)

I love the Apple Horn - even if I wasn't an IA fan, it's got my bright-coloured guitar senses tingling.

Not a massive fan of the Thunder Cloud - it looks a little bit like someone rag-rolled the Apple Horn.

The TAT Special is pure drool material.

How do they play?

Wow!! Those are amazing. Each one is beautiful in it's own right. Always liked the Applehorn and TAT models, that Thundercloud finish rocks. The TAT special is major drool factor. Damn good guitars Caparisons. Major Congratz on those JS and enjoy!!

Re: Caparison Madness (56k...just give up now!)

I really like Caparisons, but have to say I'm not a bit fan of the whole "neck-through racing stripes" vibe

I much prefer the aforementioned rag=roll finishes

Re: Caparison Madness (56k...just give up now!)

After a few days, I can honestly say the TAT Special has become one of my favorite guitars, up there with my Ibanez PGM10th's. It's also made me forget about looking for an old Hamer Californian (My one guitar regret is selling) because this one is miles ahead of it.
