The Horus-M3 plays fast and smooth, delivers a wide sonic palette, and stands up to the abuse of the most furious performers.
15-degree headstock angle

While it's difficult to manufacture, Caparison Guitars feature an exact 15-degree headstock angle. Its why you won't find string trees or a tension bar on the Horus-M3's headstock, and plays a big role in its killer tone as well.
