    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 FUCK! 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. :)

    Awesome man. I'm a pretty big fan of Caparisons, and I'll check you guys out when I'm down for getting another one.

    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. :metal:

    Are those real guitars? Because on bmusic that Frozen Sky is anything but real.

    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. :yesway:
