Caparison Guitars Dellinger-JSM Joel Stroetzel Signature - Black, Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Walnut Top, Maple/Walnut Neck, Maple Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups - Black.

Killswitch Engage’s Joel Stroetzel Signature

As one half of Killswitch Engage’s twin guitar assault, Joel Stroetzel demands a lot from his instrument — and his signature Caparison Dellinger-JSM delivers in spades. A walnut-capped mahogany body exudes resonance, warmth, and clarity. An ultra-stable 5-piece maple/walnut neck is topped by a fast-playing compound-radius maple fingerboard. Twin active Fishman Fluence humbuckers yield tight bass, incredible note definition, aggressive mids, and screaming harmonics, while a 3-way Schaller Megaswitch and dual push-pull pots give rise to infinite tonal textures. The Dellinger-JSM includes high-end hardware, a resonance-enhancing top coat, and an eye-catching devil’s-tail-shaped headstock and clock inlays.

Top-shelf materials make this guitar impossible to put down

The Dellinger-JSM was built from top-shelf materials. A resonant mahogany body provides a solid tonal platform, exuding warmth and sustain. This already-exquisite tone is then injected with extra definition and clarity thanks to a walnut top. A 5-piece maple/walnut neck offers incredible stability, while adding a nice sonic bite and maximizing the Dellinger-JSM’s sustain. The guitarists here at Industrie Music are blown away by how comfortable the Dellinger-JSM is to play — it’s exceptionally lightweight, and its oiled, soft D-shaped neck practically melts into your hand. Add a fast-playing compound-radius maple fingerboard to the mix, and you have a guitar that’s impossible to put down.

Fishman Fluence signature pickups deliver amp-punishing tones

Killswitch Engage’s musical style involves a wide range of tonal textures, and the Dellinger-JSM covers them all, thanks to its Fishman Fluence signature pickups. Voice 1 produces the same Fluence Modern sound that’s been embraced by metal guitarists worldwide, but tweaks it to deliver tighter bass and greater definition. Voice 2 exhibits what Joel and bandmate Adam Dutkiewicz call their “holy grail passive pickup tone.” This is a medium-output sound — balanced and versatile. Voice 3 is a punchy single-coil sound with a glassy top end. The Dellinger-JSM’s Fishman Fluence Killswitch Engage Signature pickups are powered by a rechargeable battery pack that you charge via a standard mini USB cable.

  • Voice 1 — Like the original Fluence Modern sound, but with tighter bass and greater definition
  • Voice 2 — Killswitch Engage’s holy grail passive pickup tone: medium output, balanced, versatile
  • Voice 3 — Punchy single-coil with glassy top end

“I am very pleased and proud to have the Dellinger-JSM as my new signature model! The 5-piece neck and walnut top give it the depth and sustain of a set neck, yet it retains the familiar grip and feel of a bolt-on maple neck guitar. The Fishman electronics sound absolutely fantastic and complement the guitar perfectly. It is capable of all the modern and classic tones one could hope for! Beyond being an incredibly solid and versatile instrument, it also happens to be quite stunning visually! The pickguard, black binding, and black clock inlays are pure class. Many, MANY thanks to Caparison for making this dream guitar of mine come to life! I could not be happier! I truly feel that anyone who has the pleasure of playing the Dellinger-JSM will feel the same!” — Joel Stroetzel
