Re: Some Caparison pics.

Looks amazing! I've always been into the H/S pickup style, headstock and the slanted fretboard with the extra high register of notes. Mostly for looks alone, it's very unique. What is the neck thickness and shape like on those?

Nice guitar, and is that a guinea pig cage behind a few of the pics?

The neck is thicker than Ibanez. More Jackson like. It has a compund radius and flattens out up near the headstock. Most comfortable profile i have played.

It is a ferret cage

Question Re: Some Caparison pics.

No string retainer on the headstock?

Nah if it's tilted it's not necessary.

Yep the headstock is tilted, also it has Gotoh H.A.P. (height adjustable pole) tuning machines. So the poles are at the proper height to eliminate a string retainer.

Re: Some Caparison pics.

Riverdragon, you find Jackson necks to be thicker than Ibanez? I know my King V neck is super thin

Re: Some Caparison pics.

I don't know of anyone that thinks a Wizard neck is thicker than an Jackson neck.

Re: Some Caparison pics.

I haven't played on a Wizard for a while, but I now my Jackson is pretty damn thin but still firm.

Re: Some Caparison pics.

I'm pretty sure Jackson has a thicker neck than the wizard, also I think the wizard is a tad bit wider
