Cool. Their website isn't great (especially with photography), if you want more details or want to see pics of a specific item, let me know and I'll track it down for for you.

...WHAT THE ....! Awesome.

...I wish I had waited the week or whatever. But I'll try to order a Red Sunset TAT II from you later in the year.

If anyone wants pics of the Frozen Sky TAT II feel free to go into my profile, "MOST EPIC PICSTORY".

Enjoy!

Now, to start saving again...also, just as a reference point for anyone ordering sponge finishes, the finishes are quite random...is there any way you can ask Caparison for pictures (if they have made multiple) and get a particular one? I had an issue with a Frozen Sky.

I don't know, perhaps but I doubt it. They all look good to me, I think you're nitpicking.

Cool man. Their production schedule is fairly limited, so if there's a model you're interested in, let me know so I can tell you when they're due to have more available of that model. I have access to their production schedule.

If you're a full V guy and there's nothing else you'd tolerate, I'd suggest looking into a Rico Jr, Jackson, KxK, ESP, Gibson, etc. The Rhoads-esque 'Orbit' is the closest you will find from Caparison for the foreseeable future.

Guys check this out, I got a cool package from Caparison Japan today. A stack of sweet catalogs, a CD with BEAUTIFUL high-resolution photos of each of their guitars (not like the ones they use on the website, you guys HAVE to see these, I'll post an example below), and a welcome letter. Awesome!

If you're familiar with my arsenal, you'd know I'm right there with you. However I think some of their superstrat models are pretty metal too. I'm considering picking up an Angelus HGS (the archtop double cut model) or a TAT.

I need to change my pants after that Sunset.

Huh? Of course they're real, they're professional photos. Literally every guitar company in existence touch up their photos a bit though if that's what you're getting at. You have to if you want them to look real and not amateurish.

If you want to high res pics of other models, let me know and I'll post 'em. I've seen some of these guitars in real life and they look awesome.

Oh yeah it does kind of look like that I never really made the connection. ESP certainly has a long history of copying guitars too, so it's all good. But yeah that would be cool in a 7.

PS: Check out this Christopher Amott model pic, I'd love this.

yeah I think Jackson japan also had that body shape too, I dunno who came out with it first, they never sold it in the US so until caparison came over ESP was the only one here...

that white amott is mega sexy, is it gloss? looks satin in that pic

That's a good question. I've been talking to Itaru (Caparison's head designer), he told me their paint job process is fairly unique, and he explained to me how the different paint jobs change the tone in different ways. It's hard to explain though, I'm just paraphrasing. It's not a satin finish, but it's not your average finish either.

I know the guitars with the "Pro" designation in the specs have that special kind of paint job. Supposedly it brings out more of the low mids of the wood than their standard paint job.

The best I can summarize it for you would be: it's more or less regular white but its not your standard gloss white guitar. I also believe it's thinner (on purpose, for tonal reasons - many luthiers have told me over the years that the less paint on the guitar the better the tone, that's why Michael Sherman prefers to only use natural stains and not paint).
