Caparison on the way.

Well I bought my second Caparison and it should be with me by Thursday or Friday. It is a Dellinger Chris Amott sig and was the 09 Caparison NAMM guitar. I had my dealer install a BKP Painkiller in it before shipping it out. I can't wait to get it. Here are a bunch of pics. Some from Namm and the before and after the pickup install.


In the backround behind the man... Itaru Kanno

The Painkiller going in it

Re: Caparison on the way.

Not a fan of signature guitars usually but Caparisons are freakin' great! Awesome lookin' axe. If i ever bought a company guitar again it would likely be one of their Horus or Dellinger models.

Can we get a review on that bareknuckle when you get the guitar? I've been debating a BK set for my next custom build (currently liking duncan blackouts), but I wanna hear a few opinions before i decide to try em out since theyre kinda pricey.

Re: Caparison on the way.

I will give a review when I get it. I'm sure it will be outstanding. I have a BKP Cold Sweat in my RG2610E and it is one of if not the best pickup I have ever tryed and the Painkiller is more suited to my tastes so I am sure it will blow me away. Getting this guitar had nothing to do with it being a sig guitar although I love both Amott brothers and Arch Enemy. I just love the specs of the guitar. I also have a Horus and it is a spectacular guitar. I have a BKP on the way for it as well.

Re: Caparison on the way.

I hate you, even though I just got a 1527 I still have major caparison GAS lol

Sexy guitar but if I got a caparison I'd go for the 27 frets haha

Re: Caparison on the way.

Nice guitar, and nice pickup choice. My main guitar has a set of Nailbombs with the same covers but engraved so I don't have to answer the same question over and over: "Who makes those incredible pickups?" hehe

Re: Caparison on the way.

Can't wait to hear some reviews on the pickups!

I'm seriously considering some BKP's for my TAT.
