Re: Got a Caparison Horus

I'm just waiting on the refund check man, they take up to 30 days to send it out. There's nothing I can do but wait for the check and then you get your money back.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

Similar thing happened to me, with a USA BC Rich. By the time the guy got it on the other end the headstock was all but destroyed but the case was still in good shape. Parcel must have been dropped on its end....The buyer was rightfully furious, accusing me of selling a broken guitar, which I hadnt... Canpar offered to pay $170 in damages because it was fully insured (Only after a lot of hassling on my part)

I paid to have it sent to BC Rich. Waited for more than 6 months for a quote from BC Rich to show Canpar the extent of the damages and to file a claim. In the end BC Rich fixed it for free because they sat on it so long. Pretty ****ty situation all around, but it ended well at least.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

I have had a kramer sent to me that had its neck virtually snapped by the headstock. The case "looked" untouched. However I trust the guy implicitly.

I think it is genuinly possible that damage can happen to the guitar even if the case appears to be undamaged.

Also the insurance from USPS took about 12 weeks to sort out, these companies don't rush.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

Has anyone had any experience with the TAT II Caparisons?

I've been eyeballing one on the BMusic site and they look mighty impressive.

Rock on!

Do you like Jackson Neck-thru Soloists? If so, the TAT will destroy it.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

Then I must have one!

Current Bmusic price is $3595 AUD, which is about a thousand dollars cheaper than a Jackson USA Soloist.

My gas is so bad I have stomach cramps

Rock on!

Dude, I think it'd be a lot cheaper if you bought it from Japan off of *Bay.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

I have been considering about Caparison lately, especially Dellinger II. My only problem is I dont know how the neck is. Wondering if it is as slim as Wizard Prestige neck or a J Custom neck. If it does not turn out to be either, then I'm seriously doomed.

Maybe someone can shed a light on this.

Re: Got a Caparison Horus

Don't worry TongueShredder, caparison necks are awesome!!!

Compound radius for BOTH fretboard and back of the neck....

And the Caparison neck are MUCH thicker than an Ibanez Wizard!! still very comfortable! bigger frets also... super jumbo...
