Yep, ANOTHER Caparison thread. But this one is a TAT .I've actually had this one about a month, but just got around to taking a couple of pics.
AMAZING, AMAZING guitar. Plays like a dream and construction is unbelievable. Just perfect fretwork, action, the Schaller Floyd give me no problems at all (this is my first Floyd guitar, too). Everything about this guitar is perfect.
Pics:



The finish is even better in person. That's an Air Norton S I put in the neck position, it sounds great in this guitar. Just an all-around great instrument, I can't recommend Caparison enough.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say the finish looks cheap to me in the close up picture
looks great in the first picture though
i'm sure it's a lot nicer in person too

Honestly I would have preferred an Iceberg but it's not often one of these pops up on Craigslist in my town... it would have been a crime not to snag it while I could . It's grown on me since I got it though and looks badass in person so I can't complain.

Ah nice nice man I see quite a few Icebergs going around on japanese auction sites for about $2200usd though I'm just waiting out for an older model as they had the sweeter looking paint.

I've never heard of that company before, but that is a cool looking guitar. At least, I find the headstock interesting. Happy new guitar day.
