Caparison Guitars TAT Special FX "Metal Machine" Adam Dutkiewicz Signature - Trans Spectrum Black, 6-string Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Maple Top, 5-piece Maple/Walnut Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 1 Humbucking Pickup - Trans Spectrum Black.
Rocking 6-string Signature from Caparison Guitars
The TAT Special FX “Metal Machine” Adam Dutkiewicz Signature from Caparison focuses all the hard-rocking detail and design that the lead guitarist of Killswitch Engage enjoys onstage night after night into one searing axe. This 6-string behemoth is designed to shred. Featuring a lightweight mahogany body with maple top, the TAT Special FX 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 no-nonsense Fishman Fluence Killswitch Engage Signature humbucking pickup in the bridge position delivers classic, hot humbucking tone.
Wired for sound
The single Fishman Fluence Killswitch Engage Signature pickup in the bridge position delivers everything that players have come to love in the Fluence line over the past five years: killer tone with no hum or interference. By eliminating the copper wire of traditional pickups and replacing them with layered circuit boards that produce vintage tones, the Fluence captures what matters most in signal transference: sound. And in the case of the TAT Special FX, Adam Dutkiewicz decided on a single humbucker in the bridge, leaving more wood in the guitar for more resonant tone!
This guitar’s 5-piece maple/walnut neck features a TAT Special soft “D” profile with an oiled finish. This smooth neck’s comfortable profile coupled with the ebony fingerboard offers incredible feel and response. In addition, the 27 small stainless steel frets provide stellar intonation when playing chords or lead. Signature Caparison clock 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 the highest 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.
