All Caparison's are good. None are cheap however, I think they're all 1000+.

Those don't look bad but its best to go for a well-known brand. I was gonna go for a Mid-End Jackson but I saw the Schecter C1 Hellraiser FR and just creamed my pants. for the extra $200 it was worth it!

Caparison is a very well known brand.

Michael Romeo, the guys from KSE (they got the rec from the guys in Soilwork), the guys from Evergrey, Christopher Ammott, and James Murphy all play them, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

There is no such thing as a cheap Caparison.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Caparison are well known for being top quality. They were set up by an ex Jackson high employee (totally blanking on the word)

They're the same quality as the highest end Jacksons and probably high than the best Schecters.

Refer to my earlier post. Both semi-mainstream metal and semi-underground metal guitarists all use them.

That's not what I meant. I know a ton of people use Caparisons. But the fact that a pro guitarist uses them doesn't mean that they're rich nor does it mean that the guitar is expensive.

It costs $2500 in the US, dude If that's not expensive to you then buy me ten of them

Oh yeah, and Andy La Rocque uses Caparisons too

Oh I know it's expensive, I'm not talking about Caparisons specifically, just the idea "xxxxx uses them, he was famous so he's rich so that makes them expensive" is a little flawed. It makes me think of Gary Moore (more famous than Michael Romeo) having to sell Peter Green's les paul because he was in debt after canceling a few shows.

And you don't need to be rich to buy a $2500 guitar. I know plenty of folks who buy $5000 Gibson les pauls that have no business spending that kind of money on a guitar considering what they make.

Touché Although I think that theory only applied to this situation in this case.

But yeah even used the best price I found was $1200

This. Go with a Jackson or something else in that price range, or continue saving up for one of the best guitars you'll ever play.

I don't think he's denying that they're quality instruments, but for someone to say get a Schecter over a Caparison isn't right.

don't get me wrong, mate, schecters are good, but ignoring everything else because it's not as popular or well-known as schecters is like ignoring the most beautiful woman in the world just because all the boys haven't already fucked her.

you're aware that the owner of caparison was pretty high up in the jackson guitar company, right?

going back to the original question: not going to happen for a couple of hundred. They're already quite a bit more than that in japan, and then adding on the usual patented UK extortion-grade mark up makes them about 3 times as much as they cost in japan.

they're not worth it in the UK, if you ask me. I mean, they're nice guitars, but they're not close-to-£2500-if-not-£3000 nice. In my opinion.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I found a used Caparison Dellinger for 799. I finally got the money for it and it was sold.

Deals are out there, look for em.

The Dellingers are the only ones I've played, but from all accounts the Horus and TAT models are also really great. I personally loved the Dellinger.
