This model is by no means the T O T Range but it does have some desirable inclusions the Floyd Fat Block Brass thing, heavy duty springs and some sustaining rust resistant string lock things...all this adds up to one meaty article ! The finish is flawless, the colour sucketh big time, the set up( intonation, action ) is pure freekin bliss...all the harmonics squeal in all the right places and way up in high octave never never land its still articulate ! I usually replace pick ups and have the frets filed... but not this time, its only got 3 positions( thank fuk ) so sick of push push coil tap in between bollocks,great for studio stuff but live on the fly...really ? The vol nob seems to have 2 actions, subtle stratty/les paul sensitivity and then loadsa roar when turned up to 11. I've had it going through a mesa/2 marshall cabs live and then through an AXE FX 2 for recording, am still discovering its different tones etc...WORTH EVERY CENT ! I originally wanted the Caparison Applehorn 6 with True temperament fretting:discontinued.....,shape the same but looks freekin rychus. to hear someone ring every last possibility out of a Caparison.... check out..
