I love the Horus HGS, looks sooo cool, happy NGD.

You gunna change the pups? I've heard a lot of people don't like the stock Cap ones.

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!

You're saying you could potentially be going

Horus HGS w/D-Sonic (one of my favourite pickups) into an OD808 (my favourite OD) into a 5150II (one of the greatest amps of all time) and you AREN'T?!?!?!

You mad bro?

Lol, I get that, enjoy it man, it's a cool ass guitar.

The stock pickups actually sound great in the HGS. When i switched my old one to a Painkiller and Tone Zone S I was not completely happy. It probably sounded better stock. Walnut is a weird wood and the stock PH-R and Sh-27 pickups seem to complement it well. Now when I swiched my regular mahogany bodied Horus to a BKP and Dimarzio it was a world of difference for the better.

That's the perfect Horus. I want it real bad. I have a Dellinger that matches it. Let me know when you want to swap

well mate im trying not to outpower the lead guitarist in my band. but yeah the walnut is a strange wood so a pickup swap can be good, and bad. and for now it sounds just the way i like it

I never found the feel of them comfortable at all [personally], but they are definietly pretty too look at. The trans-black Angelus is still one of the best looking guitars Ive ever seen.

I found Caparison pretty comfortable. Not the most comfortable guitar I've ever played though.

The Dellinger I have at the moment is super comfortable... its actually insanely nice. I've played some duds, but a good Caparison is as good as you could wish for.

its so f-inn Metal, but at the same time good at everything. it does Andy Timmons to hardcore speed picking with a clarity i've never heard in any other guitar.

im playing all kinds of styles, but atm im hired as a session guitarist for Gaia Dystopi. Check them out its AWSOME!

Looks great! Can't go wrong with a Caparison! I've owned five of 'em over the years, all extremely nice guitars!
