Re: NGD! (or when an Ibanez addict tries a new drug)

Ok, after a week of playing it...well, it probably still needs some getting used to. I pulled out my Ibanez JCustom 8470 and I really do like it tons better than this Caparison. I'll try the Cap in a few weeks again and see how it's feeling, otherwise since I got it for such a good price, it's no doubt I'll make a profit on selling it. We shall see.

An Ibanez or 6 may go up as well. I really do have too many guitars. Haven't decided yet.

Re: NGD! (or when an Ibanez addict tries a new drug)

OK, first impressions after a good few hours playing it...

1. Reminds me of the old Hamer Californian I used to have far as body shape, 27 frets, cool inlays, etc

2. The neck, obviously nothing like what Ibanez offers (in between one of my PGM's and the fat old Fireman neck) is very comfortable and easy to play.

3. The Schaller Floyd will need some getting used to as since I've used Ibanez Edge bridges for the last few years, have the fine tuners set diagonally on the bridge to better set your hand and this one has the tuners as the original Floyd was, straight up. Had to move my pick hand up a bit and it's messing up my pick harmonics but I'll get used to it.

4. Probably going to change the pickups as I'm not sure what the previous owner changed it to (The neck is a Duncan so perhaps the bridge is as well) so I'm gonna have to get some DiMarzio's in her. For what it is now, it sounds pretty good.

5.Very light, very comfortable, very easy to play so cheers to Caparison for making fine guitars and I will gladly welcome this addition and hope all the Ibanezes don't gang up on her when I'm not looking. Those Destroyers can get pretty violent and jealous.

You were probably warned about this over at the Caparison Forum, but usually one Caparison is never enough. Once you're hooked, it's HIGHLY addicting. Typically, guys who buy one Caparison from me usually end up ordering a 2nd one shortly after. Heck, it was so addicting, I ended up being the distributor for them! LOL!!

Congrats on the guitar man. The Horus is a fantastic guitar!

You have indeed mate (see my original post). It's a Caparsion alright, awesome guitars!!!! They only make about 600 guitars in total a year. The founder also inspects and sets up each guitar personally as well I think before they are sent out.

I never knew Caparisons had a shorter scale length. I'll have to give them a closer look in future...

Re: NGD! (or when an Ibanez addict tries a new drug)

Correct. It is a push/push. They are not the most durable things in the world. I have been through three on my Horus. Gladly my Horus HGS has a toggle. Allparts sells them for like $12. Buy a couple. Swap it out and keep one as a spare. They are awesome when they work, but they don't work for very long.

Its Push-Push actually, it toggles pup when pushed and springs back to place

Seems to be. Kinda weird, tho. What does one do when the knob doesn't stay in place after a few thousand push and pulls?
