Caparison Guitars New Site

Caparison Guitars - Official Website

It might have been out for a while, not sure, but I am really liking it.

Sitll got some great guitars out there and I would LOVE a Chris Amott Dellinger and a TAT

Good to know they are still around. The more good guitars we have access to the better.

The new site just went back up a few days ago. They have cut the finish options down to almost nothing.

^Unless it's a different model, hasn't that Applehorn Jazz been out for a while now? I think I played one all week during Mattias Eklundhs camp. Nice fiddle.

Hey man, Jona is one cool cat and a hell of a guitar player. It's ok not to like him, but if why bash him because you dislike his music? He isn't ragging on you... Love ya bro, just hate musician bashing for little to no reason. Everyone hates somebody ya know?

It is the same model. They haven't released anything new as of yet. There will be some new stuff, and I have heard word of a Joel from KE Sig too!

The HGS thing - is that just marketing guff?

It supposedly handles detuning better. I can understand the pickup winding responding better to specific frequencies, but is there anything else to it?

They just moved the bridge back 3 mm to improve intonation. It makes sense, but personally I have no problem intonating in B-standard with the normal bridge placement.

It holds string tension better. I like it a lot. Hate playing on floppy strings when de-tuned, and it does the job nicely.

This is simply not correct. The bridge is moved to give more room to intonate when tuning down. It will not affect sting tension whatsoever. Either your strings are set up to intonate properly or they are not. The only thing affecting string tension will be the string gauge you use.

You are only partially correct. The further you stretch anything the tighter it will get. Common sense. Also, according to Itaru:


"The Caparison HGS system is designed for guitarists that utilise a lower tuning than standard. The bridge position is mounted 3mm further down the body and the pickups moved accordingly. The result is that the string tension is correct without the need to alter the neck length and hence force the player to adjust their playing technique."

I'm sorry, but you need to read up on how a guitar works. You cannot just stretch the strings to make them tighter. They need to be intonated so they will be in tune with the scale length. The scale length is 24.75" on both the regular and HGS Horus. The reason for moving the bridge 3mm back is that depending on the tuning, string gauge, scale length and bridge type you sometimes run out of space to intonate when tuning down.

The fact that you can feel a difference in tightness just proves that the placebo effect is a real thing.

All the quote says, is that you can use thicker strings and still be able to intonate properly in order to maintain the tighness of the strings when tuning down.

YOU are telling HIM how a guitar works? I don't know what your collection looks like, but he has enough fine instruments that if sold could pay my University tuition for a year.

Still GASing for a TAT, wish they made a seven, though.

When did Axe Palace become the only North American Caparison dealer?

Well yes, because he is wrong. No matter how many guitar he owns.

But your denying physics. Take a rubber band, stretch it so it begins to fell taut. Stretch it 3mm. Is it tighter?

I give up... Please read my comments again.

Edit:

Okay, If you have a string and pluck it, it will give you a tone. If you press down on the string exactly in the middle, it will give you the same tone an octave higher. If you then stretch the string, it will become tighter yes, but the middle will also move and no longer be on the 12th fret.

This is pretty basic stuff.
