Rocking 6-string from Caparison Guitars

You’re ready to play some heavy riffs. The TAT Special FM from Caparison Guitars is the hard-hitting, built-for-sound axe you need. This 6-string behemoth is designed to shred. Featuring a lightweight mahogany body with a 6A flamed maple top, the TAT Special FM is resonant and ready for the stage. The 5-piece maple/walnut neck with ebony fingerboard offers incredible playability and response — ideal for lightning-fast riffs and chunking power chords. In addition, a pair of smoking-hot pickups drives the tone of this stellar electric, kicking out full, gritty humbucking heat. And with a Schaller S-FRT II tremolo, the TAT Special FM is primed for all the sustain and tremolo effects you desire.

Wired for sound

The pair of Caparison humbuckers in the TAT Special FM, coupled with a 3-way pickup selector and 4-way rotary switch, gives you a dizzying array of tone-shaping options. The 4-way rotary alone offers some really unique coil-splitting and parallel options. With this switch, you can split your neck and bridge coils, parallel each split coil between the neck and bridge, and parallel both humbuckers in full output! Simply put, you will have countless hours of exploration at your fingertips as you fine-tune and discover your unique tone and attack.

Incredible neck!

The 5-piece maple/walnut neck on the TAT Special FM features a Caparison soft “D” profile with an oil finish. This smooth neck, with its comfortable profile and ebony fingerboard, offers incredible feel and response. In addition, the 27 jumbo nickel-silver frets provide stellar intonation when playing chords or lead. Signature Caparison clocks inlays give this fingerboard a really cool visual vibe as well. Guitarists here at Industrie Music love this neck!

Tradition of quality

Formed in 1995, Caparison Guitars began with a simple goal: to design and build high-quality guitars that leave players with the sense that each and every guitar was made for them. From the start, Caparison listened to countless players to find out what they needed in a hard-rocking electric. Using only the finest tonewoods, electronics, and finish applications, Caparison has won over countless players over the years: Adam Dutkiewicz from Killswitch Engage; Courtney Cox from the Iron Maidens; and Michael J. Romeo from Symphony X are just a few of the devoted Caparison players who go to their Caparison axe of choice over and over.
