NGD - Caparison + Maple = yum :)

Well I just got my Horus HGS MF which has been a long time in the making. The guitar is awesome. Fit and finish is flawless and it is just gorgeous. Plays great also. It is in B standard and sounds pretty great although it is getting a BKP Painkiller in the bridge and a Dimarzio Tone Zone S in the neck in the next few days. It also needs some bigger strings as the stockers are too floppy for my tastes, but I love this thing and think I have a new number 1 axe.

Oh you want pics?

Very nice guitar. I have the same one but with the ebony board and EMGs in it. The neck is awesome on these things.

Awesome guitar!! Looks great with the maple board as well. Guys if you've never tried a Caparison I'd highly recommend them. I got my second Caparison Horus last week. Great guitars, with superb necks, a good bit thicker than your average Wizard neck but they still play wickedly fast. Check out those clock fretmarkers as well: 1st fret = 1 o'clock, 3rd fret = 3 o'clock etc.

Once again amazing guitar mate. Congratz!!!!!!

Around the 2K range, give or take.

Yeah this one goes for about $2400. The regular horus a bit cheaper, although back when I got that one it was only about $1700. Prices have gone up.

Gotta love the Caparison's

I wish the standard Horus was still $1700 right now. It's up to about $2100-$2200 at this point in time. Virtually nothing new from Caparison is under $2k.
