My new Caparison.

It arrived from Japan yesterday. It is awesome. Simply beautiful, super well built and amazing playability. The neck is superb. It needs a bridge pickup as the stocker can't go all out metal enough for my tastes, but I have a D-Sonic on order for it and then it should be pretty damn awesome.

Re: My new Caparison.

Awesome man. You'll love it, but change the bridge pickup.

Re: My new Caparison.

Awesome guitar I love it

Cant wait for caparison to start be more versatile with their options then I wouldnt worry about the price as I will work my ass off to earn the money to get it

Unfortunately they are very hard to come by unless you find a distributor or order from japan

once again great guitar

Wish the neck is ebony, that would be perfect. Anyway, the guitar looks great

Re: My new Caparison.

I love the headstock. The specs are mohagany body, maple neck, rosewood board, 27 frets, shaller floyd and nut, gotoh tuners, etc. They run about $1700+ from Japan.

Re: My new Caparison.

If it plays as good as it looks you must be very happy.

Rock on!

Re: My new Caparison.

Great machine!
I've never played a Caparison, actually never even seen one IRL, but I'd love to try one. I hadn't even heard of the brand until I discovered Mattias IA Eklundh a few years ago.
I like the looks and judging by the specs, these guitars are right up my alley.

Re: My new Caparison.

The playablity is awesome. The sound is not that great but nothing a pickup swap can't fix. Then it will be perfect IMO.
