Would one of these be a good guitar for a guitarist who plays everything from rock to metal?

Dillinger 2
http://www.kyowashokai.co.jp/caparison-eng/e-07product/e07dellinger2.html

Horus

I've played for about 8 years, but I've only seen them used by random artists like GacktJOB, etc.

What are -your- thoughts on these instruments?
-G.

EDIT:
Okay, I have two more questions:
Are these amps any good? Randall RH150 150W Tube - Valve Dynamic

Second, how does the guitarist get his harmonic to sustain for SO LONG especially when doing whammy flutters??!!

GET ONE DAMMIT!!!!! They're some of the best guitars i've played. And i play stuff from smooth jazz and blues to technical death metal, and they can handle it!

edit: alright, that didn't help much. What i meant to say was if you can afford one and find one, definitely buy it. They're extremely versatile and have such a great feel and sound. They're extremely versatile too.

Caparisons are friggen AWESOME!!!

...

If you have a few thousand bucks to drop. Japanese-made, and according to their site or whatever, because they're so highly customized, they only make 40 guitars a month. Michael Romeo has his signature model, and Oh.. my... god...
#7
I know quite a few estabnlished pros play them. Andy Larocque and Michale Romeo off the top of my head.

They are fantastic guitars, if I had the chance id buy one myself.
#11
those neck heads could be a possible murder weapon...it really looks deadly...

but overall the guitars don't look half bad...i like the natural one...
#12
Arch Enemy, Killswitch, Symphony X and Freak Kitchen. I know these has kickass guitarists, who sounds badass with caparisons.
Also they're not machine made, every model is made in the same way a custom shop guitar would be

Those are fantastic guitars! Handle all kinds of music very well (very good for dropped tunings) they have some guitars that are made for stuff in Drop B (still it´s 25,5 scale) i really like the dillinger II.

Didn't Hide play a Caparison?


No, he played like a turdload of B.C. Rich guitars and a couple of Gibbies to boot.


TS. Caparison are really versatile guitars. They're awesome too. You should totally go for it.

I own a Caparison Horus and I think it's a great guitar. Fast neck, great stock pickups, not too heavy, cool design and quality parts.

IS it not one of the ESP custom shop builders who's company they are?
(excuse the awful grammar)


I've never heard anything bad of them and they look very nice. A shop near me has a couple of them and they look the sex in real life.

they're nice, but i don't think they're nice enough for the prices they go for outside Japan. if you can find some way to get one from japan (and bear in mind that doing that will void any warranty there'd be on it), they'd be worth a look, IMO.

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 believe the founder used to be a custom shop builder for Jackson, but it may have been ESP. He also does the finishes.

#2: There's a good chance that he's using a sustainer pedal or Fernandes Sustainiac pickups, which make notes ring indefinitely.

It is a Caparison guitar. They don't have those, and when the camera gets on the guitar, there is no switch for one either. T.T

But... You only hear -that- note... You don't hear other notes ringout when he whammy flutters... He's not even touching the fretboard, too! It's... I can't do it! haha.

Anyway, Caparison guitars are just beautiful and I had the cash I'd invest in one straight away. No trem for me though
