#2

Jackson, ESP, Schecter, Ibanez, B.C. Rich (Only one form the custom shop), Higher end Washburns, and many more that I don't know.
As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?
#4
ESP's are good, so are Jacksons. Dean's are sick as hell, too! So many good guitars.
#6
I guess I'll do my order as well:
ESP/LTD
Dean
Ibanez and Jackson are equal to me

If I still had an M-II I'd stab you with it! ****ing Chris Amott, how could the lead guitarist of Arch Enemy, the brother of the man who started Carcass, and the man who started Armageddon, stop playing metal? He had better not of had one of them, religious awakenings.

EDIT: just trying to make you jealous Phil! (names Alex btw)

they are some of the greatest guitars on the planet, thats what they are. One of the reasons me and Phil are so mad about them is because the necks on them are amazing. The only place in the states you can play them is in New York at at shop called Guitar Asylum ( www.guitarasylum.com ). Some info on them are at http://www.kyowashokai.co.jp/caparison-eng/e-top.html

I think you can have them shipped to you, i don't know. The reason they are in one shop in the U.S. is because there are a very small amout of guys building the guitars and they ship out 30 a month (From what I read on BMusic)

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

yeh theres i think 10 luthiers and even if you order a custom guitar from them (Pete ordered about 4 i think, he even got maple fretboards) the top luthier wont even build them for you. and why they arent available to you canadians because frankly your too weird......only messing more likely because of the cost of shipping them to you would be rediculous and that not many shops around you are willing to set up a deal with Caparison or dont have any distributors so therefore its a bitch to find Caparisons in Canada unless you go on Ebay or buy directly from GuitarAsylum.
